Sadly, I weighed in this morning a half pound heavier than yesterday. Yes, I know I’ve already written that a person should not weigh herself on a daily basis but I can’t help myself. I’m not sure why it happened but I think it may relate to under-eating again. The Fat2FitRadio.com pod casts repeated noted that under-eating would result in the body going into starvation mode and holding on to calories. For the second time this week, I dropped under the calorie limits suggested by the Calories and Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) calculator. I ate a little over 1600 calories yesterday, so I consumed at least my BMR of 1430 calories. However, I didn’t eat enough. 🙁 According to the calculator, I should eat between 1907 calories for a Lightly Active woman (light exercise/sports 1-3 days/wk) to 2150 calories for a Moderately Active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/wk).
Today’s workout with John was lighter in deference to my knee and because I am fighting off a flu. We spent a lot of time doing kickboxing strength exercises and drills. I was still soaked in sweat but happy.
I found this video on how to do a Back Leg Roundhouse Kick on the ehow.com site.
