Net calories – 1180
Got my Bod Pod test today. The good news: my caliper skills must be pretty phenomenal, because I had gotten the exact same body fat percentage reading: 29%.
The obvious bad news: I am 29% body fat. I’ve got 35 pounds of jiggly adipose all over me… and I need to get rid of about 15 pounds of it (and gain 5 pounds of muscle). Oh boy.
The horrifically bad news: the details are for a separate post, but… my RMR is incredibly low. So losing that body fat is 300 calories per day harder than I thought.
I was originally going to spend the day doubling down on diet mode, but my friend texted me asking me to get vegan cinnamon rolls after our meeting. At this point I decided that instead of being antisocial, I’d spend the day drowning my sorrows in food for one last hurrah before a month or two of cutting. Especially because Whole Food’s mac n cheese had been tempting me for so long, I just had to try it.
Amazingly enough, their mac n cheese is pretty bad! I MUCH prefer my own low cal/healthy cauliflower version, so it was a pretty great revelation to know I will never be tempted by their mac n cheese again. Also, I used those carbs + the incredibly carby cinnamon roll to fuel my lifting with other friends right afterwards, so it wasn’t a total loss. And I ended up walking about 8 miles in addition to the lifting so I still ended up at a deficit!
Unfortunately my cinnamon roll shots were pretty lackluster because of indoor lighting, but my friend got a cute selfie!
