10-10-11 burning 9600 calories in a week!


Monday, October 10, 2011



I ran 11.5 miles Saturday morning and this picture rings pretty true!! haha!

This blog is more my rambling about what I didn't lose any weight when I burned 9600 calories!
Alright so I burned 9600 calories this week but what does that look like?
Well it was:
Sun: 6.5 mile run
Mon 5:30am bootcamp (weights)
4:30pm spin
5:30pm body pump (weights)
Tues 5:30am bootcamp (weights)
5:30pm 5ml run in the rain
Wed 5:30am bootcamp (weights)
Thurs 5:30am bootcamp (weights)
4:30 40min trail run
5:30pm Kickboxing
6:30pm Yoga
Friday OFF
Saturday 11.5 miles
Sunday OFF

So I didn't lose any weight this week - so now you ask what was my deficit...well I didn't track last Sunday for food (bad me very bad me) but lets assume a high number like 1800...even though I think I ate well I don't know for sure!

So my BMR is 1550 per day so I get 10850 then lets add in the burned calories from exercise of 9600 so total burned calories are 20450 then subtract out my calories I ate at 13382....you get 7068 divided by 3500 which should be a weightloss of 2lbs...what's the scale read...200...yep didn't lose a pound...and my clothes are not fitting any better either -so it's not like inches are coming off instead. :/ This is the freaking story of the last few months!!! I even contacted a sports nutritionist this week but she isn't accepting any new clients!! :( (looking for suggestions for an online person since there aren't many locally!)

My next step: I am going to try a fat burner this week - I have never, nor do I think that supplements are needed, BUT something has to change! I don't want to do it but after 2 months of doing what I'm doing it's not working. I have already dropped the carbs this week...preplanned all our meals and will see if that makes a difference but next step is a fat burner. My boot camp instructor recommended one so I'll try it an see. It should not be THIS hard to lose weight. To say I'm frustrated is an understatement but I keep going because my body will lose this battle and the weight will come off! Will it come off in time for my wedding is the question....

So this weeks plan - fat burner and lower the carbs and maintain activity level...stay tuned for those results next week!





Now on the positive side - I feel great, tons of energy, feeling stronger and stronger. I'm just hoping the scale will start reflecting what I'm feeling!

    I’ve been thinking…what about going to see an endocrinologist? Maybe to rule out PCOS or thyroid issues or something else? I think a sports nutritionist is a great idea. I’m sure we can turn up a reputable one with all of our heads together. Are there any running coaches in your area that could recommend a good nutritionist…licensed/certified of course?

    Yeah I try for 1500 but end up about 1800-2000/day...Sunday was probably about 1500 but was guessing higher in case I was off...I would like to be at the 1500 cal range I just can't stay there...I'm hungry all the time...so I have upped the workouts to cover the extra calories...but just not working! :)

That picture makes me laugh all the time - I have it posted in my cube at work!

    So frustrating!!! I'm curious about the fat burner.

Are you getting enough calories? If 1800 would have been a high day, are you trying to be under 1550/day? My range is 1200-1550/day and I strive for 2000 cals burned from exercise. You should be in a different calorie range than me for sure!
