Week 14- Thanks to Nutrisystem I’m eating good foods, not getting bored and loosing weight at the same time! This week my focus has been BMR – Basal Metabolic Rate. This is the number of calories your body burns in 24 hours at rest. Of course this is something you can Google and find online because there’s an online calculator for just about anything. My BMR is 1480.7 – this is based on a number of different factors including, height, weight, age and gender. Luckily I’ve been averaging about 1200 calories a day when eating on Nutrisystem. So I’m already one up on my weight loss just by making smart eating choices- yay! However in order to loose an entire pound you have to burn 3500 calories- wow that seemed like a huge number! So in reality what does that mean
Calories Eaten: 1200
Deficit: 280.7 – so there’s already 280 calories I’m burning every day just breathing
Exercise 60 min on the Elliptical = 550 calories
Deficit + Exercise = 830.7 calories burned a day
Calories Burned x 7 Days = 5,814.9 – WOW – which means if I did everything right and made good choices I should loose about 1.6lbs a week.
Okay so since life doesn’t always work out the way you plan that number definitely fluctuates for me and typically I take a rest day once a week- usually Sunday because I sometimes just don’t have time as a mom of four kids to workout 60 minutes every day. Thank to Nutrisystem I did an awesome job this week staying on plan and eating about 1200 calories every day. However I wanted a good number this week so I worked my butt off exercising in the gym and showing a lot of self restraint at home with my kids and husband eating junk and it’s definitely reflected in my weight loss this week!
