Toned body!!

I found this really interesting calorie calculator online I would like to share. This is based on my current weight, my goal weight, age and height. Just calculated my required amount of calories per day.

These results will help you determine the calorie count you need to maintain your current weight (55kg) or to achieve your goal weight (52kg) in a healthy and steady manner.

You need 1839.4 calories per day to maintain your current weight without exercise.
You need 1813.8 calories per day to reach your goal weight slowly and maintain that weight without exercise.
If you reduce your current caloric intake to 1339.4 calories per day you will lose one pound per week without exercise.
If you increase your current caloric intake to 2339.4 calories per day, you will gain one pound per week.

Exercise and Calorie Needs
If you exercise for 30 minutes each day, you may increase your caloric intake to 2038.3 calories per day and still maintain your current weight.
If you exercise for 60 minutes each day, you may increase your caloric intake to 2287 calories per day to maintain your current weight.
(If you wanna eat more, please exercise more!!)

The United States Department of Agriculture suggests that approximately 50 percent of your calories come from carbohydrates, about 30 percent from fats, and approximately 20 percent from protein sources. One gram of protein has about four calories, one gram of fat has about nine calories, and one gram of carbohydrate has about four calories.

You need 229.9 grams of carbohydrates, 60.7 grams of fat, and 92 grams of protein per day for 1839.4 calories to maintain your weight of 121 pounds.

Please remember that these calorie counts are based on the average of the population, you may need to adjust your calorie needs up or down slightly to get the results you want.Oh, and please, please do not go under than 1200 calorie per day. And if you are from Malaysia and would like to know the calorie for Malaysian local food, do check this blog here.


I know I have abandoned my blog for quite sometime; just look at the cobwebs!! *swipe2* A few things have changed since i last updated my blog. For one, I was really busy with real life in general!! I have to admit that the real reason why I started blogging was because I wanted to connect. I wanted to connect to someone, somewhere in the virtual world. I was pretty lonely, maybe because I had lots of idle time and no one to spend with. Not that I am alone, but people are not always around right? I might be away from blogging but I was so busy with work and having fun and dancing.

I'm also glad to say that I have achieved 3 goals for 2012 so far:

1) I want to learn how to swim. And I did!! I can swim now. I just did my first lap last 2 weeks. I'm so happy!! I do need more practice still though because I am still afraid of the deep water at the other end of the pool. I hope to conquer it with more practice!

2) I want to pole dance. And I did!! I just finished the beginner's level and will be going to intermediate next week. I love pole dancing despite the bruises I get after each session! I'm still a novice and I have a lot to improve still. Initially, I wanted to pole dance to work out, but now I need to work out to pole dance!! You'll need tremendous amount of strength to lift your body up, twirl around and be sexy. No joke!!

3) I wore a saree..ok, This I have already documented.

My next goal would be to have a healthy, toned and beautiful body.
