The 10,000 calorie burn

The challenge:

To burn 10,000 calories in 30 days (end date September 2nd)

This equates to burning 333 calories a day each day. Or having rest days and burning more calories on workout days.

1lb of fat is equal to 3,500 calories so by burning 10,000 calories in a month that's almost 3lbs of fat gone, no to mention the inch loss!


Who's in?

I need to go and buy a heart rate monitor so I can get an idea of calories I'm burning with Insanity. Online people report so many different amount, some people burn 700 cals per workout and some 400 cals, so right now I'm going with 400 as I'd rather underestimate than overestimate!

So 400 cals burnt for me today from Insanity + 100 cals from going out walking with the dogs this morning after my workout.

500/10,000

I'm doing a variety of Jillian michaels, or at least I'm meant to be the main focus is 6week6pack, with no more trouble zones too hopefully. Just need to pull my finger out and actually do it

after today I'm at 750/10,000 so far.

200 calories for my insanity cardio recovery workout.
50 calories as I did a half arsed walk with the dogs as it was 40C out at and blazing sun 7:30am. Ick.

I'm also buying a HRM today as I hate guessing and having to underestimate calories.
