I decided to wear my HRM for 24 hours to really see how many cal I am burning. I dont know why except to say that I gues there is a tech geek inside of me wanting to see what i would learn,
I dont know if anyone will find this interesting but so far I have found out:
For the 1st 6 hours of wearing it I have burned an avg of 111.16 an hour. (I have a mostly desk job with some walking around). just by standing up and walking around a bit- my heart rate increases about 10 points
For my exercise last night I ran and walked the hills near my house and burned 373 an hour. So technically about 261 more cal an hour from exercise.
When I am sitting at my desk- my heart rate drops almost 10 points- same with driving!
I will continue to wear it today and through the night and post more info tomorrow- I hope I am not boring the crap out of people.
But I assume I can really predict how many cal I need a day by doing this- that makes sense, right???
