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)
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
Saturday 11.5 miles
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!
