Calorie counting

The iPhone app myfitnesspal computes I need 2950 net calories per day to put on a pound a week in anticipation of trekking Antarctica. Yesterday, I consumed 2583 calories, not even hitting my target. And I felt like I was eating all day. Then, doing 1258 calories of exercise put me way below my target. I did eat my half cup of ice cream before bed. Obviously that’s not enough, either.

Perhaps it’s time for Big Macs. The thing is, I really don’t like them. Maybe my tune will change?

    Maybe not Big Macs but perhaps a daily visit to that tasty taco stand on the 101 for a mondo carne asada burrito with all the works (cheese, beans, guac, etc.)? Followed by a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake?

      I hit a quarter pounder, fries & quart (haha) of sweet tea from McD’s yesterday. It was the first time I was able to close my calorie target. I’ll do burritos, they don’t tend to hit me so bad. Ugh.
