Tracking consumption. Calories in/Calories out. It is not all of the equation, but it is something I can control, and something I need to take more control of. Today I played it smart, had a day off and did a little cooking, and had enough spare calories that I had a well deserved beer at the end of the day and still came in under budget before factoring in exercise. Speaking of exercise I got out for a jog and did some work on the weights. Here are the totals:
Calorie Target (For 2 lb a week weight loss): 2435
Calorie Consumption: 2388
Calories Burned in Exercise: 519
Net Calories: 1869
String together a few weeks of days like this and I should be back on track.
