Math time! Over 5 days I burned 9753 calories per my heart rate monitor, add in my BMR (what I burn just living and breathing) of 2500 per day, MFP gives me 2900, I’m going a little lower.
Subtract out calories eaten and I get a 12250 calorie deficit. Now if it takes a deficit of 3500 calories to lose a pound, I should have lost 3.5 lbs.
How much did I lose? 0
How much did I gain? 3 lbs.
I declare 3-a-days over.
I sent an email to Brent laying it out for him, since he never listens when I talk. Its not like I’ve never lost weight before in my life, I know it’s possible. I lost 65 pounds before, and had a loss every single week for an entire year, never once gained. And NEVER exercised as much as I have been now. I just want to go back to that. I want to count my calories, exercise 2-4 times a week, when I feel like it. At my weight the nutrition should do the work for me.
Brent read my email, said he had an idea, but didn’t have time to talk about it until tomorrow. Big surprise there. I’m not bringing my exercise clothes to work tomorrow. I’m just not doing it. I will go to Boot Camp class on Monday and Wednesday and I will exercise on the weekend on my own. This everyday crap is over. If he can’t get that by now, then it’s really over.
I know its day 50 here on the blog, but that is since he started with his 85lb goal. I have been exercising every single day with him for just about 3 months now, since May 9th. I have missed only a handful of days due to work or injury. I have lost 12 lbs in that time. Uncool.
I did everything he asked for 11 weeks, its my turn now. I got this.
