I initially thought about making this a “light” cardio week because I’ve been working out a lot this month due to my committing to 30 minutes a day for 30 days and my desire to get rid of the holiday heftiness, but I decided to wait and do a light week next week after I’ve had 3 straight weeks of logging lots of fitness minutes.
My total minutes for the week of Jan. 11: 322 (excluding bootcamp videos for days 2-7)
Total calories burned: 3667 (also excluding bootcamp videos; about the same as last week!)
This week’s plan
Sunday: Walk at Home: Fat Burning Walk (miles 1&2) and Bootcamp Day 1 Video—35 min. total
Calories burned: 384

A note about calories burned: If you want to get the most accurate estimate of how many calories you burn doing an activity, the best thing to do is buy a heart rate monitor. I was able to get mine for the low price of $25, but most models that include calorie burn estimates along with heart rate readings cost anywhere from $70-200. If you’re serious about losing weight, though, I highly recommend getting one.
