Here’s what today’s math looks like:

.5 cup oatmeal 300 cal

Coffee w/2% milk 16 cal

Banana 110 cal

.25 cup Raisins 150 cal

1tbsp Brown sugar 22 cal

.5 oz half and half 20 cal

.5 oz cream 40 cal

** Morning total: 658 cal**

.5 oz half and half 20 cal

3 eggs 270 cal

3 corn tortillas 240 cal

2 tbsp Sour cream 62

1 oz Chorizo 276 cal

Salsa 15 cal

.5 cup black beans 114 cal

100 g ranchero sauce 50 cal

Melon chunks 25 cal

** Lunch total: 1,072 cal**

10 small bread slices 600 cal

2 servings tomato dip 100 cal

1 glass red wine 125 cal

4 oz mozzarella cheese 340 cal

Large salad with Gorgonzola and raspberry vinaigrette 435 cal

100 g Pasta with cream sauce 400 cal

1.5 cup Chocolate ice cream 330 cal

.5 oz half and half 20 cal

1cup Greek yogurt nonfat 130 cal

1 large banana 110 cal

** Evening total: 2,590 cal**

BMR 1,800 cal burned

Swami’s Beatdown and Bonus Ride 2,873 cal burned

Walking slowly around San Diego for 1.5 hours 200 cal burned

**Calories out: 4,873**

** Calories in: 4,320**

And what any bowel movements? That’s losing weight.

Ick!

You say “ick” now, but at this rate you’ll be weighing the doodie soon…

OCD has a name. Wankmeister.

Just keeping things factual, sir.

Keep that that calorie deficit going for a week, and you’ll lose 1 lb ! 😉

It’s so much harder than it looks, right?

Love the fact that you had a full cup more ice cream that oatmeal.

Obviously you won’t know what the ice cream allotment is until you’ve assessed your calorie output for the day, but you do know you haven’t burned enough calories as you slept to justify 1.5 cups of oatmeal.

And they call us “unhealthy”……HA!

Daily assessment: However much ice cream I ate, it wasn’t enough.

in – out = accumulation. Thats the equation. One other thing of note on losing weight. The “out” is actually in breathing. You think about it, the combustion of fuel (food or fat) makes by products of CO2 and H2O. These are gasses that are exhaled in breathing. Thats why when you exercise you breath hard, and thats where the weight goes. It does not seem like you can lose much weight with your breath, but thats really where it goes. Weird huh,

New Lamaze intervals? I’m in.

[…] recently read the article The Math and thought it would be a good example of following or trying to follow the VSP method of weight […]
