I did the calculation from the sticky to work out the number of cals I need to lose 1lb a week but I wasn't sure about the part that takes into account level of activity, as at the moment my exercise level is inconsistent ie last week I ran a 5k race but this week I may or may not do this and/or other exercise. However I wouldn't describe myself as inactive as although I have a desk job 3 days a week I am a busy mum of 2 young kids so am constantly on the go and push a pram etc. So based on multiplying BMR by 1.2 for inactive it came out as 1112 cals and by 1.375 for mild activity it came out as 1350 so I've decided to settle in 1230 per day. However I have my sons birthday party on Saturday so will prob have a few more cals on this day and was hoping that 1230 would account for this if I make sure I'm reasonably active. Does this sound feasible?
