Health and Fitness Software, What Should Be In It? Part 2

A good health and fitness program needs to focus on factors that prevent us from becoming unhealthy. One factor that has definitely a correlation with unhealthiness is obesity. The health consequences for being overweight or obese are vast and may include high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, sleep apnea and some cancers to name a few.Losing weight and becoming healthy for obese and overweight people is imperative and well designed fitness software can support this. One way it can be helpful is to calculate a person’s calorie balance and correlate these numbers to their body measurements and vital signs. It is very encouraging and motivating to see yourself lose weight and in the same instance your blood pressure and cholesterol levels go down.Weight loss all boils down to your calorie balance. If your intake is higher then you spend, you gain weight. In part 1, we talked about the calorie intake side of the calorie balance equation. Part 2 describes the requirements for the calories spent module.Let’s start out with the assumption that the calories spent will significantly vary between people and can not be generalized between high, medium and low activity level. We need a more precise method than that. If we look just plainly at the factors that influence our energy spending, we can conclude the following:Larger people will spend more energy than small people. It makes sense that when you move more weight it costs more energy. Younger people will spend more than older people. Males will spend more than females. Tall thin people will spend more energy than short stocky with the same weight. The tall thin person has more body surface and loses more heat. Lean muscled people spend more energy than the average or overweight person with the same weight. Muscles use more energy than fat cells. Active people will spend more energy than sedative people.During a day we execute many activities all with a different length of time and intensity level. Between activities there can be huge differences in intensity level. For instance fishing is way less intense than rowing a boat. Also within the same activity different intensity levels exist. For instance 30 minutes running will cost more energy then 30 minutes jogging or walking. Executing an activity with a high intensity level will spend more energy per unit of time.When calculating the calorie balance, the fitness software should take all the above factors into its formula and adjust the variables automatically. For instance if somebody loses weight, this should be immediately reflected in the outcome. Let’s say I weigh in on Monday and the system calculates 2500 calories spent and two weeks later I weigh again and provided my daily activities were exactly the same but I lost two pounds, the system should automatically calculate the new calories burned taking the 2 pounds lost into account.You should have the ability to create multiple activity plans in the system, individualized per person. Most people repeat their daily activities on a weekly basis, if today is Tuesday, next Tuesday my activities will be pretty much the same. From Monday till Friday the activities may be similar, but they can differ significantly from weekend to weekend.In order to calculate the calories spent during the day precisely, you will need to record all activities, the length of time for each activity and the intensity level it was executed. Doing so could mean a lot of time behind the computer entering all this data. To circumvent this problem, the software should allow you to create a plan that is repeated on a weekly basis with default values. Now you need to only to copy this plan and update the differences from what actually occurred. The actual activities with their time length are noted on an activity worksheet that can be printed on a daily basis. This way your data can be recorded within 30 seconds.Next we need to be able to compare our calories spent with our calorie intake. This can be done in the form of a chart that displays the calorie balance per person over time. See the following example: calorie analysis. This chart makes abundantly clear what your calorie balance is and consequently shows the reason why you lose weight or not lose weight.In the next article I will talk about body measurement and vital sign readings and how they correlate to your work outs, supplement intake etcetera.

Becoming Self Employed and the Road Ahead

The pathway that leads to self employment can have its ups and it can also have its downs. There tends to be times you love your “job” and other times you detest it. Using the term ‘job’ lightly, by no stretch of the imagination is it just a job, and it can not exactly be called a career path either, You can be confident in calling it a lifestyle or even a way of life. The thing that you will welcome about being in the ‘self employed’ bracket are the ups, downs, sideways and topsy turvy twists that come with it. So, let us have a look at some of these twists in the road, the ups and downs of the roller coaster ride.As soon as you go self employed there will be immediate changes that you will need to purposely adjust to, and quite quickly as well. You will notice that you will not have a manager or a peer to look at what your output is every day. Fantastic you are thinking, BUT this can be good and it can just as well be bad.Keeping Yourself On The TracksYou will now be solely responsible to keep yourself on track and productive. When riding on a roller coaster, there is always a set of rules. Obeying them will ensure your safety and well being. Disobeying will result in harm to your self or being kicked out of the park. Abiding by the rules, in this case, setting your goals out, planning properly, controlling things and being productive, will mean that you will have a fair chance of being successful. If you are unprofessional about it all and do not follow the rules you will put everything in jeopardy when you do not have to. So – think you can take all the bumps and bruises that the self employment roller coaster has to offer then? The only person that can keep you on the track is yourself.The Good Times Are GoodThe benefits to be had though are worth having. You future is in your own safe hands and no ones other than your own. You own the company, nobody else and every single amount of revenue you generate is for you. If you show some financial understanding and monetary management you can obtain early financial freedom. No more worrying about requesting off days, calling off sick, or whether you have a job or not by the end of the week. When your friends are concerned about their jobs and talking about it all the time you can lounge back and feel good about the fact that you are self employed.A Positive Attitude Does Go A Long WayWhen you get on the roller coaster at the fun fair you can be 100% certain about one thing. You may be roughed up a bit from the ups, downs, twists, and turns, but you will love the ride none the less. You must adopt this same attitude when you decide to go self employed. With out it you might as well keep the job that you are currently working at and save yourself the wasted time and effort. Are you going to let someone else lay down the tracks to your roller coaster or are you going to do it yourself?
