Well, after a “break” yesterday (if you don’t count my 30 Day Shred, hour of brisk walking, swimming and water aerobics…) I am ready to finish this week strong. I have decided to make some changes to my diet considering what I now know about how many calories I burn. I don’t want to reduce how much exercise I do just yet as I think it is good for more than just losing weight, but I do need to increase what I eat to get closer to a good caloric intake. The past 32 it has been difficult to reach my TDEE minus 1,000 calories let alone eating back what I burn. But I am going to work on that, trying to make it a more healthy food experience. I think with how much water I drink I feel full more often which is great, but when I am netting only 900 calories per day when I should be eating 2,000… that’s not good.
In other news, I upgraded my barbell rows because I felt like I was wasting time trying to get to a heavier weight that actually challenged me. I will probably do the same with overhead press starting on Monday.
