Right now I plan to burn 230 calories per day 6 days per week. I've done more when I felt like it, and less when I've had illness and injury. Just need to adjust food amount when I can't get in all the cardio I want.

Jessi, I'm new at maintenance, too, and finding that I'm still slowly losing, though not nearly at the rate you are! I still have my same ol' goal of trying to burn 1500 calories/week, and much of my fitness during the week comes from walking. I may get in a yoga session (counting only the vinyasa part as cardio) or the occasional jog on a telework day. Then I end up packing in the fitness on the weekends. I also aim for 2 ST sessions a week, one with my trainer and one on my own.

Thank you all for your replies. I just need to make sure I'm not over doing it too much. I love to exercise so it's hard to pull back at all. Maybe I should just eat more. I am just having a hard time going from weight loss to weight maintenance.

I get in a 45-50 minutes vigorous yoga routine 5-6 days a week. I am not counting calories used because there is so much variation in the different tables I look at. I always give myself one day off, usually Sunday.

Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.

I am using the point system on WW and I choose not to exercise regularly. I am active and play golf and walk whenever I can, but not on a regular exercise plan. I count my points and watch portion control. That works for me.

I only turn my HRM on for exercise classes and sports. I don't count daily activity as exercise.

I usually do take a rest day (Friday).

I only track actual workouts, ie; kickboxing; circuit training; running. I track walking but only because I want to log 1000 miles this year, but I don't count it towards my daily goal.

Do you track all of your activity?

Great question.

I actually find that exercise helps my mental state and my body composition more than it helps my weight directly. To control my weight requires fork drops and table pushbacks. ;-) (i.e. calorie control)

I use a Polar FT60 heart rate monitor and I'm usually pretty content when I've burned at least 400 calories on it per day in exercise (except on the rest day).

Here's my schedule:
(reposted from my spark page)

M - Tae Kardio at lunchtime, Body Pump Class in the evening
Tu - XC ski at lunchtime (if there is snow), Spinning in the evening
W - Tae Kardio at lunchtime, Body Pump Class in the evening
Th - Tae Kardio at lunchtime, Spinning in the evening
F- Rest, stretching, sometimes a deep tissue massage
Sa - Playing outside (kayaking, XC skiing, snowboarding, road cycling, etc.)
Su - Playing outside

This past month I've been taking a horse riding lesson T/Th evenings instead of spin class. It means I'm burning less, but I'm getting those skills back. When I come back from riding in AZ with my sister (HAVASUROSE), I'll resume the spinning.

I just have a question for you maintainers. How many calories do you aim to burn daily/weekly. I sometimes feel like I'm not burning enough, but that's because I have no idea what I should be burning. Could you PLEASE let me know what you, especially the long term maintainers, burn daily/weekly and how often do you workout. Thank you!!
