Another good day here. I managed to get a few things done and my 4 mile walk.

Working on my plans for meals for the coming week. Always a challenge but trying!

Okay ladies, I just went back to look at what was happening and I think I figured it out! I wear a Fitbit and it must be automatically putting info in and I'm also logging my walks so a double entry. I think the Fitbit is giving me more caloric burn than SP so I'm sticking with the SP counter. Now to go back and see if this happened in previous days.

    FYI- according to my heart rate monitor, which is set for my age (61) and weight (180), I burn about 750 for an hour of walking, in which I do some intervals and always some incline (almost always on a treadmill).
    I don't let the fitbit double track me by ignoring the SP calorie recommendations and keeping to the range I know I need.

    we sure do get bogged down in numbers, as long as you are moving you are doing well

    It takes me 10 miles of running to burn 1,000 calories. You must be walking a LOT of miles. I only burn about 300 calories when I walk 4 miles.

    Good question. I'm just putting in my food and adding my exercise (primarily walking) to the SP tracker and this is what it computes.

    Good question. Just how do you burn all those calories. Are you running? Biking? Playing squash?
