I am in ( I already started doing 50 min a day ) but I think I will increase it to 60 min a day 6 days a week( maybe 30 min cardio and 30 calisthenics). In March I am considering to take my bike from Sofia and to go to lectures with it everyday (but I am worried because the conditions for bikers here are not so good there is no specific traffic lane for bikers on the road but I think I will make it). Wish me luck !

Question = Is everyone using the cal number from their food diary where it states +exercise? That's what I'm doing so I hope that is correct. For minutes I'm using actual dedicated exercise time since I'm doing DVD's it's easy to calculate.

The way I got my calories burned is by clicking on reports then scrolling down to calories burned, it is the next to last one. It tells how many calories you burned each day.

Hi Molly. Thanks for the info but still not sure which figure to use for calories burned. When I look under MFP, it shows Fitbit calories burned, My Fitness Pal calories burned, and a fitbit calorie adjustment. Do I use one of these figures?

Hello Traci,
I use the fitbit calorie adjustment because I do not log calories for exercise since I have been using fit bit. So if I do a DVD and burn 200 calories per my HRM I do not log it. I just go with the Fitbit adjustment. I think this is safer for me and more accurate. It may make an adjustment when you log your exercise, not sure since I have not tried it yet, but I am told it does. Hope this helps. These are all just tools and none of them are 100% accurate but they help us stay on point regardless and we are burning something.

Is it too late to join this challenge? I'm just starting a weekly local program and it would be great to couple my "real life" with "online" friends.
