Its the end of week for and I have some time to share all my stats with the site. I hope to be able to do this every week so you can see how I’m doing and what the week looks like from my technology standpoint. All of the images in this post are from screen shots of the Fitbit and MyFitnessPal App.
Overall I know I could of done better food wise but, I did add an extra day at the gym. My non-gym days were so sedentary that I don’t think it did too much damage on the calorie burning aspect. I don’t expect to see much of a jump in the scale Monday. I need to work on this weekend food thing!
First lets take a look at my actual weigh loss progress over the last month. I think Fitbit calculates the weight change from the highest weight (259). I’ve hit my lowest weight this week which is great! You can see that my weight easily fluctuates about 3 pounds per day.
Week #4 Calories Burned
This graph shows the calories I burned for the week. The three green days are the ones I went to the gym. On gym days I burned more than 3,350 calories putting me at my goal. On sedentary days I burned between 2,700 – 2,900 which are shown on the graph in grey.
Net Calories Eaten
Here is a graph from MFP showing the net calories eaten. This means that burning calories added to the allowable calories. I don’t ever eat back my calories so they are well under 1,650 on exercise days. MFP has me set up to eat about 1,650 calories a day. You can see the days I went over because the graph is red above the 1,650 line.
My worst days were Thursday and Friday because I didn’t eat at home. I burned a lot of calories at the gym on Friday morning which is the only thing that saved me from going off the charts that day.
I don’y pay attention to the 4,174 number because it doesn’t include the calories MFP adjusts when it suggests me the 1,650.
Actual Calories Eaten
Below is the chart from the MFP website showing my actual calorie intake for each day of Week #4. MFP actually calculates a week from Monday – Sunday and I can’t go back to show Sunday – Saturday. You can see how MFP adjusts for exercise.
