HealthStatus.com has a Calories Burned Estimator. Burning 500 extra calories a day will help keep you in shape during the winter months. You enter your weight into their site and choose an activity and put the amount of minutes into the box and it adds up the daily amount of calories you burn. Make sure you feel good at all times, winter tends to make me feel more like sitting. With this chart, I can make sure I am actually doing fun things to brighten my attitude, and it helps me stay with that good feeling of activity.
My favorite calorie burning activities are:
The totals of these add up to about 500 or more which is the goal for my everyday exercise quotient. It helps me not get seasonal depression or lack of exercise problems with arthritis. Sometimes I will time commercials and do certain exercises during them so I know the time. You can vary the chart above for different days or use the same ones.
Eventually, when you get really good and start losing weight you will want to add more of the exercises then 500 because your body will be burning calories more efficiently. When you don't feel tired anymore and have lots of energy increase the calories your burn by about 50.
Most of the exercise diet sites cost money now so this is a good free site to use.
I didn't like paying 100 dollars to go to the health club and then not being able to go because the baby didn't like the nursery... lol!
