My dietitian has my calorie range at 1750 to 2100. I tend to eat around the 1900 mark. I exercise at least 120 minutes a day, 6 days a week. I include cardio and strength training daily. I train with a trainer twice a week and take a class three days a week at the gym. My average daily calorie burn is 1000 - 1100. I wear a heart rate monitor when I exercise. I make my nutrition tracker and fitness tracker public so everyone can hold me accountable to stay on track. I eat 4 - 5 meals (including snacks, with higher percentage of protein and lower of fat.
As part of our October challege, I thought it might be helpful to put our "how" we are taking care of bodies to reach our goals.
I am trying to maintain 200 minutes of cardio a week, and averaging around 1500 calories. I'm trying to cycle the calories a little bit, (low, low, high) but keeping my average around the 1500 mark. I'm been making sure I have at least 3 meals a day, including a strong healthy breakfast. I've also made an effort to be more active in Spark People, because I realize I can't do this alone any more.
