You’re too kind anon. Wish you weren’t anonymous though! Thank you :)
I think I’m going to up my caloric intake because the 1200 myfitnesspal gives me just doesn’t feel like enough anymore. My BMR has definitely increased, so I figure I should up my caloric intake so I don’t get too hungry and binge or what have you. Usually I do 1200 on days I don’t exercise, then add the extra calories myfitnesspal gives me from the day’s exercise. Although I haven’t been as diligent with tracking my calories, so I could be feeling hungry after 1200 calories simply because I was eating more than I was supposed to, and thats why I’m stuck in the 180s. I don’t know. Any suggestions?
I was thinking closer to 1500 a day. I weigh around 185 and am pretty active throughout the day, even without exercise. I walk a lot of stairs and to and from classes and the store and such, so I’m not exactly leading a “sedentary” lifestyle. What do you guys think? Should I eat 1500 a day, every day, even when I exercise (and not count the extra calories from exercise)? And maybe if a few days my exercise is extensive (like a 5-mile run) I can up it to 1800 or something? Let me know what you guys do/suggest for me to do!
If you DON’T find me attractive I just assume you have bad taste.
So I decided to do some high intensity intervals on the treadmill today to get a good burn. I’ve realized I’m actually a really good sprinter and can withstand high speed running for a couple minutes. Anyways, today I was able to run at an 8.5 for a full minute on the treadmill. That’s a 7 minute mile speed. I’ve never gotten up to 8.5, and to be able to do it for a minute (I told myself I’d go for 30 seconds, but then decided I could go longer)! It was pretty sweet.
