My program has changed a couple of times and I am still tweaking it to find what works best for me, weight loss and activity wise.
I had my phone consultation in the middle of week one and at that point I was exceeding my calorie burn target by a lot. So when I talked to the consultant we decided to up the goal for the six weeks. So instead of losing 12 lbs over the 6 weeks, we changed it to lose 25 lbs in the 6 weeks. Yup... that's right just over 4lbs a week. To do that, my target is to burn 4150 calories per day, while consuming 1900 calories. I went for the first 12 days without taking a day off from scheduled exercise. For the first 7 days that target was easy for me to reach... ok I say easy, but it really wasn't that easy, but I could do it. It worked well for weight loss (I was down 6lbs in the first week), but my body was tired. This has left me without the ability to take a day off. So last weekend I took both days of the weekend off and it was nice. This week I have either ran or done boot camp everyday, but tomorrow might be a rest day due to a sore foot.
Instead of sitting at a 2250 calorie deficit each day, I am going from 1000-1500 instead. That will obviously change the weight loss, but it makes life livable!
I am really enjoying seeing where and how the calories are burnt. I feel like I know a lot more about my activity now.
For instance... I didn't ever imagine myself to be an active person. I was busy... but I didn't think I was active. The Body Bugg counts steps for you as well as everything else that it does and I usually average about 12,000 steps per day, going as high as 15,000 on some days. The general rule of thumb for an active person is 10,000.
