Calorie Burn Reality Check. Thank You Body Bugg!

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

My 2nd reality check in the past week :D

I walked 4.5 miles this morning. I did P90X Legs and Back workout. I've burned 2,006 calories today - awesome right! Yes! But Body Bugg still wants me to burn another 444 today. It's HARD to burn my BB goal of 2,450 per day. Then consume 1,950. I might lower that down so I can still have my 500 cals per day deficit. It's only 4pm and I can still probably burn another 400, but I'm TIRED!!!

Basically the moral of the story is we all need to move a LOT more than we are! :D Aaaand even if you THINK you are moving a lot, it still might not be enough!

I've been trying to think of ways to get moving more and to burn more calories. This might get me to clean more! LOL!

Have a good evening everyone and go get off of your butts and go for a walk. emoticon

    You could try this. Google "Net Gain Food" or "Nutrient Dense Foods". The Thrive Diet is based off of them. You get wayyy more bang for your buck, and way less calories are needed. I look at it as higher octane gasoline. My car will get better MPG with less gallons because the fuel I give it burns more efficiently. Which ends up saving me money in the long run. The new regular gas has 10% ethanol in it, which lowers your MGP and therefore requires that you increase the gallons you use to go the same distance. Not good on the environment or your wallet. Also the lower quality fuel dries out the internal orings quicker, and causes them to need replacing earlier then high quality fuel.

    I find that's true for me too! That's why I love these devices. No more guessing at how much we burned or overestimating a workout's effects.
