recording workout information
Wednesday, April 28, 2010
I really enjoy recording my food in my food tracker. A week before I map out my entire week, get a grocery list, multiply is so I have enough for my family of 5, go shopping, and I'm set. I know my family & I are getting what we need and after ALOT of trial and error I have this method to be very affordable.
But fitness tracking is a whole other ball game. I used to love seeing how many calories I can burn in a week. Challenging myself each to burn more, or even bike & run farther.
But now that I am switching my fitness goals from weight loss to performance (faster, stronger, etc) I now longer feel motivated to see how many calories I burn. I have a notebook recording my distance and general workout plan- so there is a recording. I still love & use my HRM but not longer for the soul purpose of seeing calories burned BUT monitoring my heart rate while I'm working out. (Am I working hard enough, too hard, etc).
Is this normal. Should I somehow try to convince myself to go back to data recording here on spark?
