    2200 Cals - eat back almost all exercise cals
    BF: online calculators say around 23-25%, but more like 18-20 (I think they're wrong)

    currently:
    W/Sat = run 3-4 miles; Thur, Sun = Weights;
    *MWF = pushups; T/T/Sat = chinups

    *unless DOMS render me useless and crying in fetal position

    Calories Per day = 1925, i guess it's TDEE, my trainer set my calories to be the same every day regardless of workout. Took a test to determine my BMR and set it accordingly.
    BF - ~39% according to tester at gym
    Workout - 1 hr personal trainer session 2x per week, plus jogging 1 hr 3x per week (change it up between intervals with some walking and steady state)
    Lost on avg 5 lbs per month since January 1, woo hoo!

    5'7", 38, Female
    136-138lbs (maintenance range)
    TDEE--~2,100--I eat them all, as I'm at goal, I cut weight at ~1,700-1,800 gross daily intake
    21-22% BF
    Strength train 3x weekly, 45min-1hr brisk walks or slow jogs 5x weekly (my moderate cardio has "earned" me a 2100 maintenance--much better for my happiness than 1700-1800 ;) )
