Since the calorie and other ranges are partially based on our estimate of calories we are burning it is pretty important that we get that number fairly accurate. Over my first 10 weeks I have increased my workouts and thus the carlorie burned. Starting Kettlebells 5 weeks ago really increased it, but because the class is a lot of stretching other conditioning exercises and not straight Kettlebells I was not sure what the calories burn was. To add on to that the hockey season started last weekend and I did not know what kind of calorie burn was there. So until this week I erred on the conservative side in my estimated calorie burn figuring it was safer to under eat than over eat.
I finally got my heart rate monitor working over the weekend and I can be pretty accurate on my calorie burn. After entering the new calorie burn I now am supposed to eat more daily. This is so counter inuitive to my life long belief that less is better it is taking a great leap in faith for me to start eating more to lose weight. But, I am doing it. As I say often, in for penny in for a pound.
