set your own goals .

starting monday 2nd july -30th july . log your weekly total on sundays and how far to reach 15000 / or your goal.
lets really push it this month

    target 15000
    left 15000
    burned today 867
    left 14133

    Have a feeling this is going to be tough averaging 600 cals a day is not easy.


    ps Need to find another 23 cals to catch up with delmc1 lol

    This is definitely going to be hard! Out of curiosity what exercise do you usually do? I'm a cardio kind of gal but it really doesn't burn enough so I've been looking for suggestions to mix it up!

    Today 1274
    Left 12255

    My HRM said I burned 1300 calories doing a spinning class today, but I have trouble believing that, so Im just claiming 504 for spinning, like yesterday.

    Hi CK, which one did you get? I'll probably wait a few more weeks before I get one but I see lots of people on MFP talking about the Polar FT7 and FT40. If we ever get a summer I'd love to get in some sea-swimming but without a HRM I'd have no idea how to track cals burned and thought a HRM could help.

    FYI : I thnk I'll have to watch this challenge from the sidelines... I'll be away for 2 or possibly 3 weeks in July which will play havoc with my exercise schedule.

    I'll be in the stands cheering... "G'wan ya good ting! Now yer sucking diesel!"
