So... what I've been doing this semester is 1200 calories on days I don't work out and 1300 calories on days I do. I work out 2 days a week. On monday and wednesday I have a not-too-tough martial arts class in the morning for 90 minutes and cardio kickboxing in the early evening.
So today I went hiking in the early morning and wanted to start recording calories burned. I looked up exercise to calories burned tables for my weight. With my weight and the time, the activities stated absurdly high numbers for calories burned. So I chopped those numbers in half to be extra conservative. That still came out to 1200 calories burned...
What on earth am I supposed to do? Do I have to eat more than 1300 today? I'm so confused. What do you do about eating back exercise calories?
I got knocked down, but I got up again. They ain't never gonna keep me down.
