Do you have the myfitnesspal app? It helps you to track your calories and you could note down your calories burned from this app to myfitnesspal.

Cardio exercises are best for burning fat. But if you also want to tone up try HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) exercises. These exercises force you to work hard in short spurts. This spikes your metabolism keeping your body burn calories well after your workout is done (known as afterburn).

HIIT exercises give you the combo of cardio and little strength training in one workout.

I built my HIIT exercises (Core Blast, Sexy Booty) from workouts I found here and at ab-workouts-guide.com If you like em try Core Abs & Stretches, Cardio Fight Club HIIT, or MAX Tabata Test they're fun and challenging.

As for calories measuring how many calories you lose. Skimble tells you how many calories each exercise burns. You can also buy a calorie counting watch at most retail stores (Walmart, Kmart, Sears, etc.) or sporting goods stores.

Good luck and God Bless!

I use Lose It app...it allows me to track calories and my food. Also had a bar score scanner so I can just scan the package and it will give you the nutritional info

It's really a great app ;) I like being able to scan the barcode and not have to hand type all the info. It's really helping me stay on track with my eating

You need to get some body fat callipers.They are an accurate way of measuring your body fat.I got some off Amazon, they were pretty cheap.
