Monday Madness!!

Today was pretty busy at work, but I managed to track my food online.  Which brings me to a new task, I must find a nutritionist.  When I was back in Tucson, I was seeing a lady who told me to eat 1700-1800 calories/day.  Now I think that's a little high, however, I do weigh a lot and may need more calories for sustenance.  I definitely don't want my body to go into starvation mode, but in that same sense I don't want to be sabotaging my weightloss becausee I'm eating too many calories.

Anyone know of a good calculator so I can figure this out??

So I ended up eating around 1850.  I went a little higher than I should've because of my workout at the gym.

I showed up to the gym a little early for Zumba class and ended up in 'another' class... called Tabata.  Now apparently Tabata is an exercise form that focuses on getting the heart rate up and then resting, almost like interval training.  We would do intense moves for 20 seconds, then rest for 10s.  This went on for a little over 10 mins.  Needless to say, I was sweating my behind off.  I'm not used to intense stuff like that, at least not yet.

Then I did Zumba for 45 mins.  After that I did the treadmill for 17 mins and the elliptical for 20.  Then I stretched and had a delicious meal supplement shake!   It was an intense day, so I upped the calorie count... but I still feel guilty.  So no matter what, I will not go over my 1800 tomorrow, I'm promising myself that!

Alright, I'm beat and I go to get my braces put on tomorrow. I'm nervous... I've been waiting for this moment for a long time.  My bottom teeth are super crooked... heh. Man, I hope it doesn't turn into a bad scene.... 24 with braces, oh boy! My sexual attraction just keeps growing... son of a.  I'll post an oh-so-attractive photo of myself tomorrow.

Goodnight kids!

1700-1800 sounds right. I think that's probably what CalorieKing would recommend for you, but they also shave off about 100 calories for every 10lbs you lose and bottom out at around 1200. 1200 is too low for most people though, I think 1300 is easier to achieve.

This one is the best one I've found btw:
