I orginally posted this in the wrong area I think...
I introduced myself about 2 weeks ago. I came here because I have been exercising and watching what I eat for months and finally weighed myself to see the exact same number I started
I decided to record my calories so that I can see where I was going wrong... late night snacks
After reading many topics and posts here of useful information I decided to buy a HRM (polar F4). My first workout showed me I was working out at an average Heart rate of 180s... I should be between 117 and 153. At My Target heart rate I was sweating, but it was easier and therefore made me feel i can keep going
I walked today a distance that my HRM as burning 647 calories. In the past my pedometer showed this at about 350 calories.
Sorry for the long read....
My point is.... I've lost 2 POUNDS in my first week!
Thank you for your support and encouragement.
Some of the ladies here have had great success... Please share with me some of the routines or diets you have used or using. I need some new ideas so i don't get bored.
About the Heart Rate Monitor.... It seems my cardio is less difficult at my maximum rate than it was when I had no idea where it was. What damage am I actually doing when I exercise over my maximum heart rate? I can't remember reading the answer here.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
