Jan 4 - goals met (4 days out of 4!)
Exercise: Yes - 30 min walk
Thinking about calories: MFP sets my calorie goal at 1275. Out of the last 7 days, I've been under that 4 times, way over once (hello new year's eve champagne!) and under 1360 for 2 days. My tracked TDEE for the week was 2180 (taking out a huge day 1 - day 2 water weight loss), but my 7-day average for calories was 1378, even including the new year's overage.
Moving forward with this challenge, I'm keeping my MFP calorie goal listed at 1275, but I'm counting myself as under calories if I'm under 1400. My spreadsheet is set up to track 2-week TDEE next week, and 3-week TDEE following that, and I'll adjust my personal calorie targets as needed based on the results.
Who else here is tracking their own TDEE? (Hat tip to @craigo3154 for introducing me to this back in 2018 in the Biggest Loser challenge)
