Weigh-in Wednesday - Um...okay
My weight and my eating habits have been all over the place this week. I've been doing a church drama immediately after work since Wednesday. They've been providing dinner and snacks so I'm at their mercy.
I've been leaving myself 800-900 calories to cover myself - but then for dinner one night they served chili dogs and nachos then animal crackers and brownies for snack. Having said that...
Last week's weight:126.2
Monday's weight (post run): 123.8
This week's weight: 126.6
Looking at the Harris Benedict formula I should be able to eat around 1850 calories a day and still lose one pound a week. Right now I'm shooting for that number and just maintaining.
That means one of two things:
1) my metabolism is way off what this formula thinks it should be
2) i'm not working hard enough during my exercise sessions
3) i'm not doing a good enough job tracking during maintenance.
My guessing #3. So from here on out I'm going to resolve to be more dedicated. 1850 and not a calorie more. Okay so maybe fueling for my long run I'll spot myself a couple hundred extra, but I'm up to a 9 mile long run so I think that's reasonable.
Now its time to head on over to the Sisterhood and see how everyone else did this week.
