Counting EVERY Calorie Burned – Part 1

Man: “During sex you can burn as many calories as running 5 miles.”
Woman: “Who the hell runs for 30 seconds?” 

I really think spring is here. I had my capris on for the first time in months. They still fit (insert much cheering here). But I need new ones and as it gets warmer, the pant length goes up and shorts? Well, they’re so..short. I have legs like tree trunks. And now, not being able to do the leg and mobility exercises because of the bad hip (I’m still waiting for a date to get my loose screw fixed), I don’t seem to losing any belly or thigh-size.

I’ve been food journaling. I write down every food and count every calorie crumb. After more than 40 years of following calories I know most calorie counts so what about what I’m eating. Obviously, it isn’t enough. To work on this I’m beginning to count every calorie I burn doing even the most mundane activities (and some exciting ones, too)! To create this chart I am using The Health Status Calorie Burner Calculator. The counts listed below are based on my body weight because I know anyone wanting to know this is probably overweight, too.
