Saturday, December 04, 2010

i saw an ad the oter day on this site, about tee shirts and other clothes with fruit and veggie prints has any one of you the link?

I am also a bit confused (what else is new emoticon)

I have changed gyms and the precor or elliptical is different, when it calculates calories
it used to be 35 min and 345-350 cal.
now it is 35 min 125 cal.
and i need to change my calorie burning but cant get there either. emoticon

    Getting a pul;se monitor is a great idea. I have heard the the calorie calculations on gym machines are not very accurate. I usually just enter the activity in my log and let SP figure the calories!

    Can you get a pulse monitor? If you track your own pulse changes, to know when you are at some % of your maximum pulse, then maybe you can estimate your calorie burning better than whatever the machine indicates.

    The same thing happened to me. When we bought a new elliptical it showed only 25% of the calories burned compared to the old one.
    It was really irritating until I stopped looking at it. I tried to work as hard as did on the other one and concluded that the results would be the same whatever the display said! Now the display´s broken anyway and I only use the tracker here for that.
    Makes it harder to know what you´ve really burned though...

    I too need to change the settings and don´t understand how. The foodtracker tells me that I eat too much and the fitnesstracker that I have to eat more if I´m going to train this much. And yes it´s confusing!

    Have a lovely sunday! emoticon

    Hmm, what a mean thing to burn less for the same effort...

    If I google around it says that you lose 80-100 calories per ten minutes if you walk – ah but you mean that you haven´t been able to program that thing right, that´s why it´s showin less... but as you know how it worked with the old one you can do some sort of average counting without that thing measuring... I will change batteries in the training bike today becasue it shows calories burned to although not so sophisticated mor like an estimation.
