The interesting thing about the SP fitness tracker is that it only gives about 326 or so calories burnt doing Zumba. Of course, that number changes somewhat depending on a persons weight. Still, it isn't the 600-1000 that instructors will tell you. So, I dunno what to make of that. Not really going to worry about it.
B/c I'm trying to lose weight, my calorie range is 1200-1550 at the moment. I have tried to make my settings as accurate as I can with putting in how many miles I walk a week, and how many aerobics work-outs, etc. It still is not computing correctly, so I still have to figure the thing out, I guess.
I can go to sleep being a little hungry, but not with a feeling of an empty stomach. Just doesn't work for me. Having milk makes me feel full. So, that is a good option, I think.
I think I finally got the fitness goals worked out. I had entered in how many minutes of aerobic, and how many miles (my walks), but until I added up and entered in the amount of calories that those activities are going to use....it wasn't giving me enough calories in a day. SO, I entered the calories, and now it has my range as 1260- 1610. That's a little better. I KNEW something wasn't right, b/c it would tell me at around Wednesday that I did not need to burn anymore calories for the week. Which sounded ridiculous to me.
Sorry if this just sounds confusing. But, it's the section on your trackers page. Right under where it says to track your food, fitness & weight, there's an orange box that has a place to set your goals.
