More exercise = eat more food for energy!
Monday, July 16, 2007
Ok, I think I really overdid it. I felt SO GOOD burning 1000+ calories at the gym each day, but I wasn't eating as though I was burning that much! I was trying to still stay within my range. Which is good if I only burned the 600 a day my goal is, but just plain not enough food if I'm burning this 900, 1000, 1300 streak I've got going.
I don't want my body to go into starvation mode. I don't want to overexert myself!
I got the silly idea in my head that by burning a lot more I will just lose faster. Well let me tell you, that is NOT always true! I somehow put on 2 pounds because of it. (which still doesn't make sense because I was certainly not eating enough with the calories I was burning to GAIN weight, but whatever....)
The last time I was losing the weight really well I noticed I ate an average of 1700-1800 a day and burned about 500 calories. So today I'm going to burn 700 and I'm eating 1850. Hopefully that will be a winning combo!
