Net calories – 1300
Came up with yet another recipe using my almond butter protein bread–yesterday was french toast, and today was bread pudding!
I spent the day continuing to be pretty upset about things with my boyfriend, but felt better towards the end of the day largely thanks to lifting. Though, I did manage to throw out my back–guess the routine my instructor had us do yesterday was too hard for me, or I was doing something wrong!
I felt crazy for eating 1800, but I did end up netting right at 1300, which is a low estimate of my BMR. So according to TDEE calculators, I should be netting 1450 for maintenance, but rounding down should make up for fitbit/calorie counting errors… plus I generally don’t believe the calculators.
Hoping this recomp will work… right now I’m essentially doing -25/0 (aka -25% calories on off days, maintenance calories on lifting days).
