I'm not sure how much I burned on strength training so I can't be completely accurate about cals burned today. 

I'm not sure about deficits or whether exercise cancels out calories eaten but all in all I think I've done pretty well today, it's just what I need after such a bad week!
Also I found this article on Shape Magazine's website which I think is brilliant, especially as you should all know by now I'm a bit of an alcoholic, i.e. British, which gives you great recipes for low calorie cocktails

  2. Exercise can cancel out calories. It just depends on how you want to do your count. Some people don't count it against their intake and others do. I track exercise but I go by actual food eaten. I feel if I up my intake by my amount of exercise it won't be as effective. Good luck!! And hooray for low cal cocktails.

  3. They have "skinny" alcoholic beverages at Applebees - and they taste really good!

    Great intake - extremely healthy. :) And good strength training. Muscle constantly burns fat, so that's awesome!

  4. wow I wish I could do what you can, you're really amazing.I absolutely looove Cocktails but it's so hard to find some with lower cals when you go out drinking cocktails.. the only thing I try to avoid is milk/cream in cocktails. tastes very good but way to fatty!

    good luck with SGD(:
