That´s what my body burns in a sedentary state according to the bmr calculator! I think it lied! or I just didn´t burn enough or I just counted my calories wrong.
I tried to burn it. I really did. Last Friday, I ate about 1,300 calories and burned more than 500 calories on my bike with my lifts included.
I did not lose anything!
I tried to burn it! I really did. The next day, I ate a bit more because I exercised more. I swam 45 minutes and jogged/walked about 15 minutes. Had a really hard time calculating my calorie intake this day. I figured about 1,657 calories. I really thought I had burned enough though, with all that exercise, not to mention cheering like crazy for my Hubby at his football game...
But I did not lose anything.
I have to tell you I was a little disillusioned.
Well, at any rate. I kept up with my biking and walking the rest of the week.
Gettin´Fine in ´09 update.
I didn´t lose any more weight all week. I stayed the same.
At least till today...
We just got home from a long day of sight seeing with our visitors from Germany, eating a picnic lunch, snacking, having German chocolate, Spanish coffee and pastries, and then ending the day with pizza for dinner.
OH boy, oh boy! Not good for any dieter!
Had to call today my free day. I have allowed my self a day where I can have special foods and sugary treats. It has helped me to keep up on my Fitness Journey. ( I like this term better than diet)
My goal: Start off tomorrow with a light jog with my Hubby. Make pancakes and eggs for everyone and just eat some eggs and fruit. Lots and lots of fruit, veggies and water. I am going to try a combinations Atkins diet with the South beach diet. Low carbs. high healthy protein, no empty carbs. or sugars.
We are taking a trip to Granada and Portugal next week. I am so excited, but how am I suppose to keep the weight off? Any suggestions? I just gain weight looking at food!!
