Egh. Hi, all. Back with some adjustments.
I’ve still been eating my banana a day, but I’ve come to the realization, that I’ve been eating too many calories, which is why my weight hasn’t budged, despite being active…er.
So, anysnooch, I’m lowering my calories, but my body didn’t like that yesterday. I think it was too sudden. However, I’m confident that it’s going to work, and I’ll get used to it.
As for my activity, this no excuses November thing is still coming along nicely. I enjoy it, especially the burn during my exercises, despite how much I might complain about it at the time. The next day, when I’m still sore – I know something’s been done right, and that’s very rewarding. Hee hee, my muscles are getting toned! YEAH!!!!!!!
Today is arms day, which means pushups, though. I suck at them ‘cuz my shoulders always hurt, but I think if I just keep doing them, maybe my shoulders will get stronger? (It’ll also help if I don’t carry so much crap in my bags, but I need the two heaviest things in there. I’ll figure something out about that.
The reason I thought about lowering my calories in the first place, though was partly (minimally, to be honest) because I wasn’t losing weight doing whatever it is I was doing at the time, and majorly because I read a blog by this woman….oh, I think it’s Black Girls Run, where she talked about how the 2000 daily recommended calories thing was kind of super dumb. Then she broke it down, that the reason so many people trying to lose weight on a 2000 calorie diet were gaining instead is because their bodies don’t require that many.
I wasn’t trying to eat that many calories in a day by any means, I promise. I was doing between 1650 and 1800, just after seeing what my calorie count logs after a week were (I kind of forgot about the app for a while, so I pinned it to my start – guess which phone I have, lol), and that told me why I would either gain or stay the same on my weigh in days. I was eating to gain or maintain the weight I’m trying to get rid of. (Note, I have NO intention of finding this chizz once it’s gone, lol.)
So, I went through a bunch of calorie calculators online, and they all told me that I was supposed to be eating just a bit less to lose. Then I had a brilliant idea (well, it might not be brilliant, but it’s an idea that doesn’t go below 1200, anyway.) I looked into basal metabolic rate calculators. If you only need so many calories to exist, and you exercise on top of it, you can eat those calories back, if you want. I’m not sure if it’s the best plan, but if you only require x amount to maintain weight you want, then only eat x amount to get there on top of exercising sounds like a winner to me.
So, I’m going to try that and next weigh in day, I’ll see where I’m at. I’m still gonna take my measurements though and check if my body composition has changed any. I’m really super excited about this. Next step is to eat 80% clean, then boost it up to 100%. I currently have no idea how clean my diet is, but my assumption is that it’s not very. I seriously need to start eating the black rice more often, since it’s a delicious complex carb. (side note: it tastes great with kimchi and chicken, doesn’t matter how you do it. Mine was seared and boiled.)
But back to my exercising, I like fitocracy, it’s a wonderful supportive website for people who want to get fit – like me. You can log and track your workouts, and save them as routines. Except for my leg workout, I tried saving that as a routine and got an error message, even though I saved the other two successfully on my phone. …oh well. It may just have to wait ‘til I get to an internet source ( I’m typing this at home with no net…)
Also, I did a bit more research just to make sure I’m not spewing absolute filth onto the internet, and yes, eating at a target bmr may not kill you, but it can end up not being the best thing for you, either.
Now it’s story time. Back when I was living in the dorms, and I was first trying to get rid of my bc weight, I started eating less, but what I did eat was healthier options, shit Id like one of those salads I was eating right about now, spinach, eggs, Tabasco, and/or red wine vinegar, depending on my mood. Sometimes I’d add croutons for crunchiness, but that’s beside the point…
I wasn’t counting my calories until we got a nutritionist, who told me that I should be. I just never thought about it much before then. So, anyway, I started tracking, and noticed that daily, I was eating less than a thousand calories. (I also didn’t know what a target bmr was, so I wasn’t trying to eat at one of those, either) That explained the weight loss, of course. I didn’t feel like I was starving myself, and I didn’t get any of those anorexia issues people tend to get when they eat such few calories. I’m not advising that anyone go off and do that, either. That was bad me being bad, because afterwards, I kept at it for …a while, ‘til the weight loss stopped (I’m guessing I ate like that for maybe a couple months). Then I read online that I was supposed to up my calories, so I did cycling, where I’d eat more on some days, and less on others.
Then I just stopped tracking, and put weight back on like a dumb butt.
So, back to my point – track, see what works for you, but keep in mind that the guidelines are probably there for a reason.

Oh, but I just made gochujang chicken stew last night, and it turned out pretty nice!
Woah, that was pretty long, huh?
