IMREITE, I was wondering about tracking like that, so I went and looked at one of the days you tracked--that actually looks like it might be pretty accurate (based on what unofficial studies have said about Wii Sports). Good job on that!! (I was a bit concerned because I know of someone on SP that tracks Wii Fit Rhythm Boxing as real boxing--and says that she burns 1200 calories in 2 hours.) But yours looks GREAT!!!

I normally use sp to calculate the calories for the real thing then cut it in half. I still move in between games and matches to increase the calorie burn.

it is NOT a good idea to log it as the "real thing" instead of the Wii workout stuff.

For example, if you were to count it as "real" boxing, it would have you burning around 1200 for about 2 hours...a WAY inflated number. Think about how much more you would have to do in real life (like lift a 8-10 lbs. or more ball to bowl with) and that makes a difference.

The way I record it is to put it in as "Aerobics:General:Low Impact".

For the sports, you could be more precise than that, if you went with the statistics that have been gathered on it...I'll see if I can find it again.

I started wearing my HRM. When I'm navigating menus I walk in place or if I'm on the board I swing my arms to keep my HR up. I just add the calories that are calculated by the HRM.

I think that would be a great feature if it did.

I'm not sure if Wii has a place where it does tell us how many calories we burn while we are doing different exercises...Merri

Thanks, that's what I thought I could probably do but just wondered if Wii actually told you what you were burning.
I'll just have to fool around and find calories burned for things like Hula Hooping that probably not already on SP.
