Now that I've gotten clearance to begin moderate activity again (as if it was restricted for so long), I'm feeling very motivated. A few days ago I posted my caloric intake "requirements" based on NROL4W calculations. I've double checked them & they are correct. To maintain on days that I don't workout I would be able to eat approximately 1575 calories, 1850 on light days, & 2300 on intense days (won't be seein' those for a while).
My goal is to lose some of the fat I've put back on over the last 6 months.
Therefore, I will keep my calories a little lower than that. I'm going to shoot for approximately 1400 on light workout days & 1200 on workout days.
I've added a link on the sidebar to my fitday journal. Please feel free to view it & comment here on where I could make improvements.
I've already put what I hope to eat today in. Planning ahead, right? I also intend to ride my bike for approximately 30 minutes. Since I can't reach and lean on my arm, I am just hoping to have a nice easy ride. As my reach & strength improves, I'll start doing intervals & even take it to the road.
We're hoping to get to Dick's or Sports Authority at some point in the next week & pick up a bike for John. It will be GREAT fun to throw the bikes in the bed of the truck & go over to Philly for a ride around Fairmont Park!!!
