Hey y'all! I have a calorie question. I have read a lot of the topic articles on calories but still struggling here.
My total calories burned last week was 2449 and Sparkpeople says for me to aim for 680 a week. I am a pretty active person in constant motion with cleaning, groceries, exercise and walking, etc.
I'm confused! How many calories should I be aiming for in order to keep up with my active days right now?
I am 37 years old, 5'10" and 188 lbs. My workouts are between 20 and 45 minutes long. I am wanting to get down to a healthy weight so I can play with my kids, get my heart healthy again and lose the health issues that come from the extra weight. My doctor wants me to be more active to strengthen my heart.
Back in 1995 I split my kneecap in half but never really went to the doctor for it, so I am "paying" for that now. I am doing exercises to strengthen the muscles to stabilize my knee so that factors into what I can do. I can barely do a squat right now but I keep trying, not pushing too hard but try to slowly strengthen it.
Thanks for your help!
If you don't have to work for it, it's not worth having. The best things in life don't come free.
