Holy moly! That's a lot in a day, haha. I'm guessing this is in measurable exercises/cardio...? But perhaps I'll join you, I'm hoping to lose about 5 pounds in August... so I think that 500 calories a day is a good goal for me based on calorie intake.

Welcome aboard ツ
I need to see some results, it may sound like a lot but I think its doable. Just 1000 calz a day for the month will get me there.

★Good luck with ur weight goal for the month of AUGUST★

It's virtually impossible to figure out how many calories you burn exercising or doing normal activities. Almost everyone overestimates how many calories they burn exercising. See sticky thread: http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/exer...g-methods.html.

That's why most people use exercise for fitness, not for weight loss. It's also why people count exercise by measurable goals- minutes exercised, pounds of weight lifted, speed on a 5K, etc.

Thanks for your post.
I've read this Sticky: Are The Calorie Counters On Cardio Machines Accurate? By Meg.
However when I track my cardio I include all factors
Distance-Minutes- & Calories burned.

★ Even if the counter is NOT accurate, if setting a calories burned goal gives me motivation to challenge myself & workout daily in order to achieve this goal Im all 4 it.

I use my Polar Heart Rate Monitor where it calculates calories burned by using my fitness level (it does a fit test based on your sedentary heart rate), height, weight, and age. So, my goal is 500 calories a day. It stores all of my workouts and calories burned for the entire week. I love it!!
