"so basically we are burning a lot more calories than it says we are when we track our cardio and it actually tells us our cals. burned"
The calorie tracker is pretty accurate for calories burned through cardio.
If you also do strength training, it is possible that you are burning more calories than you have entered in your cardio tracker. But it's likely that you're not burning many more (unless you're training for the Olympics or something), which is why we think of them as "bonus" calories that don't affect our recommended nutrition ranges.
Stats: Female, 5'4", 28 years old.
Goal: From 152 (07/24/2011) to 125 by December, 2011. DONE! December 4th weighed in at 124. In 2012 I've been maintaining around 122, which is a thirty pound loss. My BMI has gone from 26.1 to 20.9 since following the Spark plan!
