I forgot to write in my journal yesterday, so I am combining today and yesterday’s posting. I went in for my BodPod assessment today, and it was totally not what I was expecting. I wasn’t allowed to run, eat, or drink for two hours prior to my assessment. The pod is a small pod. You need to sit still for around 45 seconds. They run the pod 2-3 times for a most accurate reading. Based on my BodPod assessment I have 31% body fat. The minimum number of calories I need to function for a day is 1231. Based on my activity level, I should eat approximately 2142 calories to maintain my weight. To lose weight, I should eat approximately 500 calories less than the calories needed to maintain my weight. My target caloric intake is 1642 to lose 1 pound a week.
My Weight: 142.6
Monday’s activity: Physical therapy
Tuesday’s activity 40 minute run plus 110 sit ups
