The Math

I can't sleep. I'm laying in bed on my iPhone and blogging. Weird. Anyway I can't sleep so I am doing a little math.

In the Lose it! App my weight loss program is to lose 2 lbs a week until I get down to 199. My calorie budget is 1597.
I subtracted that from what I normally eat (2400) and I would be left with a total of 1400 calories I have to burn through exercise. That's 200 measly calories a day, folks!! I do an average of 2500-3500 in exercise and I am GAINing

I am eating my hard work. That is discouraging to think about. Bummeeeer.

I went to the store and I mow have lots of healthy goodies to eat. I can't wait to try my omelette for breakfast. I am also going to curves today too for the first time in god only knows how long.

I hope to go swimming today too.

I read on facebook that Jillian michaels has the women on her progr eating 1200 cals a day and burning 3500. Holy crap!! No wonder they lose 40 lbs in 6 weeks they are starving.

How did I do on typos? I'll check later.

Yay for iPhone bloggyness.

  1. Hmmm...I am lost on your math, lol. I got confused when you say you eat 2400 a day but have budgeted 1597 then you say it is a measly 200 calories a day. Are you saying that you only need to burn an additional 200 calories a day but that you are burning 2500-3500 a day and are gaining? Sorry I just got lost in all that.

    I read that too about Jillian's program. But I will say that I am eating 1200 cal. a day and I am not starving at all. And when she says that they burn 3500 calories a day that is the entire day with daily activities and resting metabolic rate included. So really that is not so scary!

    I think you are looking amazing. Keep it up because you are doing something right!

    Rock it, live it, own it!
