I went ahead and changed my nutrition tracker. It's now the "new way" and is connected with my fitness. Today I ran, did some strength training, stretched, and did lots of walking. The new nutrition tracker raised my calories for the day 600 calories!
There is NO WAY I am eating over 2,100 calories. My "old" calorie range is 1550-1800. I occasionally, on rare occasion, would go over 1800 if we have a party or a celebration. However, I would not be comfortable "just eating" that many calories. I am going to listen to my body on this one and if I'm full, then I'm not going to eat.
If I want to eat something, I eat it in moderation. Today I had my last Mackinaw Island Fudge Ice Cream until next summer. I shared a cone with my husband so I didn't "go overboard," but I did partake.
I am really interested to see what the calorie range will be on a day when I'm not working out as much. Overall, I think it's a great idea to modify the calorie range depending on the exercise level. We'll just have to see.....
