Calories In, Calories Out

Friday, May 30, 2014

I'm still "choosing my hard" here.

Still trying to figure out the daily calories...

Made a change to the Fitness settings.

Seven days a week of cardio for 40 minutes at a time and that put the high end of my daily caloric intake at a little over 2000!

Woah! Stop!

Reversed the entry and put it back the way it was.

I simply do not believe I need to consume that much fuel every single day.

I'm moving my body aerobically yes, but do I really need to "eat back" the calories I'm burning?

I'm doing a 3K per day - not running a marathon!


My total cardio stats for last week:

Total Distance (miles): 20.17

Total Calories burned: 1269

Total Time: 4 hours and 38 minutes

Workouts: 7

I'm still maintaining - and trying to fine tune - and I may simply have to accept that for me, this is what maintenance is going to be like for the foreseeable future.


I would love to hear your experiences so far with fine tuning what you're doing!

    I've been at goal and maintaining for over a year. I have a 5-pound acceptable range and I'm staying within it. I track food and fitness everyday, but I don't automatically eat more when I exercise more. For me, it's a matter of maintaining good habits every day -- I'm not going back to the behaviors that caused me to gain weight. This is my new normal.

I wish you the best!

    I am trying to work out a plan for myself also. I found some very interesting information on a couple of sites: &
They are run by the same guy with the first being about fitness routines and the second about the food plan. The perspective is kind of unique but
I found them extremely helpful. I am going to give you some more personal info on your page and we can stay in touch about this if you want.
