Not really, it is what it is. I typically burn about 300-500 cals which is equal to a 30-60 minute run for me. I do 20-60 mins of running 5-6 days a week and lift weights 3x a week for 30 minutes. Since I got my Fitbit I've been more into my steps, miles and total calorie burn. I usually get about 12-15k steps when I don't exercise and 20-25k steps when I run. I usually burn between 2200-2600 cals total per day and get about 7-10 miles.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

I don't think that much about it. It generally works out to be 30 minutes of intense cardio or an hour of yoga or strength training a day (5 days a week). It works for me and keeps me from getting too caught up in the numbers.

800 calories a day, 6 days a week is my goal. Generally I am pretty close to that.

I have metabolic problems, so this is a maintenance level for me, even if I only eat 1200 calories a day

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

I usually strive for 30 minutes to an hour of exercise a day instead of going by the number of calories. Usually I strive to work out 5 days a week but sometimes it is more because I feel so much better when I do. A great question! Have a wonderful day!

Do you have a set number of calories a day or week that you try to burn? Do you target for a certain amount of time per day/week? Personally I try to do a mixture of strength and cardio about 5x a week burning an average of about 500 calories a day.

Today is a new day and I will not quit!
