3-Day Exercise Activity Analysis 2
Here are some ways that can increase energy expenditure and activity levels to help lose weight and fat without having to go to a gym.
If you have a physical job like in the construction industry then you are already starting off right. You could try to work harder, perform more of the physical tasks by yourself rather than use a machine and do it quicker. If you have an office job, you could park the car a little further from the office than usual and walk the extra distance. You could take the stairs instead of the elevator or even try jogging up the stairs. At lunch breaks, you can try to spend 20 minutes eating lunch slowly and then taking a brisk walk outside for 40 minutes. Instead of calling or emailing your colleague, walk over to him or her.
Housework is a great way of spending energy because it is something that needs to be done and the feeling of having a nice clean house is also something to feel good about. Make every week cleaning a spring clean by cleaning thoroughly in hard to reach places and taking everything out and dusting off the shelves. Cooking and preparing your own vegetables and meat, as well as making your own bread or cakes by hand instead of buying them pre-prepared is also a good way of working out. It will also make eating more enjoyable at the end of the day.
Some other ways of increasing your energy expenditure would be instead of driving, use a bicycle or walk, take up some form of a physical hobby like gardening, woodwork or a racket sport, if you watch TV, you can still ride an exercise bike in the home or use a rowing machine, and if you go out, burn off calories by going dancing.

Activity on Arrow Diagram Exercise

...CPA 104 Activity on Arrow diagram exercise You are working for a manufacturing company and your task is to create a network diagram for a project that the company has commenced involving the acquisition of an industrial furnace. A furnace may be over 100 metres long and have more than 40,000 components, so effective project management of the contract is essential. One use for furnaces is to turn clay into ceramics for things like tableware and sanitary-ware. A furnace may cost up to several million dollars depending on its size and capabilities. A manufacturing company that is looking to buy a furnace will often solicit several quotes or tenders. If a customised design is required, this necessitates considerable preparation and effort. Once a tender is awarded, the key phases to be completed are design, purchasing, shipping, installation and commission. There are two common formats used to prepare network diagrams. The activity-onarrow (AOA) network method displays activities as arrows and events as nodes. The other format is the activity-on-node (AON) network method, where nodes and arrows represent activities and events are not illustrated. The choice of AOA or AON representation is a matter of personal preference. For this exercise we will use the AOA format. Project information Detailed below is a project activity list for the project to install a furnace. The main activities 'a – h' are listed, along with their preceding activity.

...3-Day Exercise Activity Analysis Nicole Pehrson SCI/241 May 10, 2013 Thomas Phillips In this paper, I will review my 3 day activity analysis of physical activities in my life and address ways to better this part of my life. I always feel like I am busy and always on the go. I work full time, school, and of course cleaning, cooking, and keeping up my house hold. As much as I feel I am always moving and on the go, I feel like I should be in better shape, but I’m not. This course has helped me learn to be healthier and in better shape, with not a lot of changes. My daily exercise habits are pretty minimal. I start in the morning with stretching then getting ready for work. I then come home and clean the house and cook. I then try and take an evening walk or jog. I just got my Insanity DVD’s back so I have started doing that as well. It is a 40 minute workout that I do in the evening. I enjoy doing this rather than walking or jogging, especially since it is getting so hot outside. I do not get a lot of exercise at work because I sit at a desk all day, but I make up for it when I get home by cleaning and my evening jog. One day a week I deep clean my house. This seems to really get my heart pumping because I dance around the house while doing so. I am always busy, but honestly I think I have more energy because I am always doing something rather than sitting at home. The super tracker results summary page showed that within the 3 days I tracked my exercise,......

3-Day Diet Analysis

...3-Day Diet Analysis The 3-day diet analysis was very interesting to me, and has given me some very useful and challenging information pertaining to my health. I know I do not have the healthiest eating habits, and after using the SuperTracker I plan to do my best at changing my diet. My current eating habits are not very bad, but not very good or healthy. I do not eat breakfast, but when I do I eat breakfast I eat food that is for lunch or dinner. I know that is not good, but eating some breakfast food makes me feel sick. Honestly, I like to eat breakfast food at night. Lately, I have not wanted to eat breakfast at all. So when lunch time comes around I am starving and I sometimes eat more than I should. I also stuff myself when I am eating. I have this mentality that I should eat everything on my plate, even when I am full. The recommendations I received from the SuperTracker pertaining to my servings from each food group were mostly under the serving size. I received a good report in the protein category. I love to eat meat. The vegetable category was okay in some areas, but needs improvement. I also need to improve in the calorie area. Apparently, I was under my 1800 calories, but the empty calories I was over the limit. As I mentioned before my eating habits are not good at all. I can adjust my diet by eating the appropriate nutrients. I need to eat more fruits because my results were not good in that category. I can......

3-Day Diet Analysis

...Three Day Diet Analysis Hans, Ronald J. SCI 241 November 11, 2012 Stacey Nagy Three Day Diet Analysis Growing up I have always given my dad a hard time for his weight until about four years ago when he pulled out his wedding tux and I tried it on and could not fit in it. I am currently six foot four inches and weight approximately one hundred and fifty pounds so you can share my amazement when I found out that I couldn’t fit into my two hundred and fifty pound father’s tux. My dad got married when he was twenty two and I just turned twenty two, so I believe that it is about time to start being more a wear of what I eat. Being that I am currently underweight, I haven’t had to discipline myself when it comes to eating too much. My problem is that I do not eat enough of the right stuff. My three day food tracker account has shown me that my eating habits are horrible to say the least. I only managed to meet one daily food group target and that was only for two of the three days. I fell under the recommended calorie allowance on all three days as well. It is obviously that my diet needs help. Super Tracker recommends that I ingest 3200 calories per day. The highest I achieved in the past three days was only 2353 and that was because I almost ate an entire twelve inch pizza for dinner. Of the six classes of nutrients, Super Tracker recommends that I eat ten ounces of grains, four cups of vegetables, two and a half cups of fruit, three cups of dairy, seven ounces of......

3 Day Analysis of the Diet

...realize how much junk, un-healthy, bad, and hurtful foods we put into our bodies every day. Throughout the Diet Analysis Project, I was able to look into my diet and examine what I was eating, what types of nutrients I was getting and how much . I did an eating log for three days, one weekend and two weekdays to really look into my diet and see if I was eating healthy or filling my body with unwanted bad foods. I then compared my recommended levels of nutrients for my DRI and the actual amounts I was receiving throughout the day. I needed to see if the nutrients I was getting would allow for my full DRI values but not overdue my nutrient levels. I found some very interesting numbers that pertained to my diet that were good and then some that were pretty bad. Some nutrients that are close to deficiency include: carbohydrates, vitamin A, Vitamine C, and saturated fat. These outlines of foods that I have recorded, is pretty close to my daily routine, and therefore are pretty accurate. In my diet I was under average in vegetables and fruits mainly and way over average in grains, protein, and empty calories. For instance an empty calorie would include added sugars and fats mainly. When we break down my diet we see a couple things, I am low in my colaric intake by about 300 kcal, and in protein I overshoot by about 60g. In a lot of places in my diet I very sufficient in foods: fat, cholesterol, omega 3, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, B12, folate, iron, zinc, and sodium. Some of......

A Day of Nothing and a Day of Activity

...A Day of Nothing and a Day of Activity From what I can recall, I did nothing of particular interest on February 8, so I shall elect to skip talking about it. To make up for the lack, I shall write an excruciatingly long entry for today. As is typical of an exchange student at Kansai Gaidai, I awoke only to begin my journey over to my Japanese class. In class, we played 'Who's Pen Is This?' in order to practice our previously learned grammar lesson. Next, we planned a pretend trip in order to practice another grammar lesson. Finally, we learned a new grammar point before departing. My next activity was to wait 40 minutes so that I could meat Saki and Chiaki again for lunch. This time, I brought my laptop along so that I could share photographs from back home. While waiting, I was joined by Wayne, a Chinese student who I had previously met, and Keisuke. At first, Keisuke swore that Wayne was a Japanese person, but after some effort to convince him otherwise, he believed that he was not. Come 11:30, I took my leave from the boys to join the girls in the cafeteria. Since it was rainy and drab awful outside today, Saki and Chiaki were waiting inside the cafeteria instead of the outside area where they usually wait. After getting food, we ate and talked some. Once finishing, we made our way to the CIE lounge so I could plug in my laptop and begin the show. A wise move plugging it in, I might add, as the presentation lasted about four hours. I began by showing pictures of my......

3 Day Nutrition Analysis

...increase the amount of energy expended in your day-to-day activities? To increase the total amount of energy expended in daily activities the time and amount of daily active exercises must be increased. The more vigorous the exercise performed is, the more energy is expended. All leisurely activities should be taken care of throughout the day, but the vigorous activities should be planned in order to incorporate all muscle groups and cardiovascular exercise. What types and amounts of exercise would work best for you? Among the exercises listed the ones that would work best for me would be walking, jogging, and playing sports. Also weightlifting and aerobic exercise would help to expend energy and burn calories. Riding a bike could also be an option as this could be enjoyed by the whole family. Can the activities be performed year-round? If not, can you suggest alternative activities and locations for inclement weather? Though bicycling cannot be performed at the home without a stationary bike, running and jogging can be done standing in place or on a treadmill. During favorable weather conditions these activities can be enjoyed outdoors. However, during inclement weather these outdoor activities can be put to a halt. During these times there are still many options. With personal gyms opening at an exponential rate, having the right equipment and an educated trainer has become an easy commodity to acquire. Also, many activities at home like sit-ups and pushups can be......

3 Day Analysis Diet

...Super Tracker to track my food for the last 3 days and comparing it to what should be eaten was an eye opening experience. My eating habits at this time include eating quite a bit of fast food and Haitian food. I skip breakfast most mornings and have only a cup of orange juice. I may eat a piece of fruit and then I work 3 or 4 hours before I get a snack of maybe a piece of fried chicken from Mc Donald and ice cream. Later, I may drink a cup of tea and by the time I make it home after 6 p.m., I usually eat until I go to bed. I eat chips and dip, candy, cookies, and more fruit, if I have it. I know this is not a healthy diet and I plan to use the food tracker to continue to track my meals and make healthier choices. The recommendations I received from the Super Tracker included a diet of no more than 2000 calories a day. My plan included less than 258 calories from empty calories ounces a day of grains, including substituted whole grains for refined grains at least half the time. I am to eat 2.5 cups of vegetables a day, including dark green, red, and orange vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, and carrots. Two cups of fruit a day are included in my meal plans. The Super Tracker recommends using a wide variety of fruit, by adapting my choices to seasonal fruits. Three cups of fat free or low fat milk is recommended as well as low fat or fat free cheese and yogurt. Protein foods are recommended at 5.5 ounces a day or 8 ounces a week. Seafood should be......

These should be the same two days on which you record your food intake! 3) Generate an eating plan and analyze your food intake and physical activity according to MyPlate online (www.myplate.gov). 4) Go to “My Reports,” provide the info requested, and print out your food intake and physical activity along with your personalized plan. 5) Using your results, evaluate the quality of your food intake and your activity level. Detailed directions: 1) On the diet logs attached, record everything you eat in two 24-hour periods, carefully noting amounts. Remember to keep track of beverages and condiments, too. The more accurate you are in recording amounts, the more accurate your analysis will be. For help in judging portion sizes, you can use the “Size Up Your Servings” handout available in the Oncourse Resources folder (i.e. 3 oz of meat is like a deck of cards…). 2) On the activity log attached, write down every activity you do beginning at 7 a.m. on one day and ending at 7 a.m. the following day. Remember to include all activities of daily living such as dressing, showering, driving a car, reading, etc. Include work and recreational activities, and include weekly activities that don't occur every day.

My current exercise habits are going to the gym at least three days per week for one hour. I focus primarily on cardio because it helps to burn fat. I complete thirty minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of strength training everyday because I want to lose and tone! I find it easier to go to a gym as opposed to walking around my neighborhood. I tried that and felt discouraged, not quite sure why. But the gym is working so much better for me. According to SuperTracker results summary page, what were your credited minutes, total expended calories, physical activity score, and physical activity assessment results? Provide a screenshot of your results summary. The amount of minutes I exercised for four days were 360 minutes. I spend 30 minutes on the stationary bike and 30 minutes on the elliptical machine. I burned 1148 calories daily or 4592 calories over the four days (not sure why the tracker did not include this).

Sci241 Week 1 3 Day Diet Analysis

...Week One Assignment: 3 Day Diet Analysis SCI241 April 29, 2012 Week One Assignment: 3 Day Diet Analysis My current eating habits are not the greatest, to say the least. Instead of eating healthy for breakfast, such as oatmeal, fruit, and juice, I usually eat a couple of waffles doused with maple syrup and peanut butter. And I have a Pepsi. Lately I have been trying to eat yogurt with granola instead, but I also just realized that the granola is not helping me in the calorie situation. For lunch, if I am at work, I will usually order something from the cafeteria which almost always includes French fries. Sometimes I will order chicken strips, other times a French dip. Lately, I have been trying to bring leftovers from dinner to save money, and I am hoping that helps me a little bit in the calorie department. But again, I always have at least 20 oz. of soda with lunch. I have started bringing a water bottle with me to work so that I am not always relying on soda for my liquid. For dinner, a lot of the time I eat out, which I know the portions are always huge at restaurants, but I still eat it all anyways. I have tried cooking at home more often, which also (hopefully) saves some on calories. With dinner I usually have a couple cans of Pepsi. I have noticed lately that I am gaining weight also, which is very frustrating. I had been at a point that I was losing weight, and I think it is because I was not eating breakfast, and now I make sure that I do. ......
