Camlo- I use myfitnesspal app and log every mouthful of food/ drink consumed. This wk I have eaten more than usual as bn at home with kids and in holiday mode. Ate 14,227cals all in which averages as 2032cals per day, which is what I burn on non exercise days. (Wore a hrm for a month just to get idea of my calorie burn) I ran 40 miles, cycled 46.7 Miles and hill walked 6.5 Miles. I count my exercise as 113cals per mile for runs, 25 cals per mile for bike and 80 for hill walking. Which comes to 6208 cals for my wks exercise. Should have lost 1.75 lb on that calorie burn. Never quite works like that though. I have lost 18 lb since Christmas but most of that came off the 1st 2 months and bn a hard slog since. I am now same weight as I was Feb 2012, very disheartening to spend 2 yrs yoyoing and not getting any closer to goal. But heyho just have to keep at it. Will get there eventually.
