On January 1st I joined (like many others, I suspect, the Official January Jumpstart Challenge. And to my amazement, I'm sticking to it and enjoying it! Before then I was very sedentary and seldom logged any exercise, though I would walk the dog a few times a week. I had set my fitness tracker to 10 minutes of exercise a day, and seldom met that with any regularity. But now I am trying to eat right and log my nutrition and fitness realistically. I am working out a lot more, and doing 30 - 60 minutes of exercise daily.
In my fitness tracker, I have been getting messages warning me that I am burning too many calories for what I'm eating and I should change my fitness settings, so I went in and entered my new details: 7 miles a week, 3 days of strength training and 5 of cardio at 30 minutes a day. My calorie allowance stayed the same (1200 - 1550), but it's still complaining and telling me that I need to adjust my fitness settings.
Also, I wondered if I am eating too few calories, as after 10 days on this plan I haven't lost anything at all.
What should I do?
