a little info...Hi, I am new to these boards but not to fitness/diet. My stats; 32, female, 5'1 and 139lbs. I still have a pretty defined body because of my past experience in dancing/gymnastics-but let's face it years and 1 child has made me look more like Spongebob (short & bulky) then Buffy the cheerleader. I exercise 5 days a week ( I run doing intervals (4x aweek) from speeds 4.2 walking-jogging 5.5, running 6.5, sprinting 7.0-8.0) each for one minute then back down again for a total of 45 minutes. Once a week I do a long slow run at 6.0-6.5 for 45-hour. I have a lot of muscle mass on top so I only lift twice a week-light weights/2 sets/12-15reps : biceps/triceps and chest/shoulders. I have a VERY broad back for a woman and at 5/1...hello hunchback from Notredame!
Now to my question (finally :) ) I recently went to a RD to help me try to shed these last 10-15 lbs (I am overfat for my height) she put me on a 1500 calorie diet. I also had my BMR tested by the Bodygem and it came out to 1430...I am fairly active during the day with my 2 year old so I think (guessing) that I burn about 2100 a day, without counting in my morning run's calories burned. Does this seem right, that I should only be eating 1500? I asked her and she said it was fine because I was eating over my BMR, and if I wanted to add so more calories like up to 1700 it would be okay, but I didn't have to. To me, it just seems weird that IF I did factor in my morning's calorie I would be burning like 2500-2600 and eating only 1500- not enough! I am confused. Should I factor in my workout calories? Should I drop a workout? Should I eat more on some days? Should I stay at 1500? I am totally confused and maybe a little stupid cause when I called her and asked for more explaination-I still didn't get it!!!! Maybe I've been out of school to long!!!!!!! Sorry so long...and thanks for the help!! :)

Where do you get burning 2500-2600 as your "mornings calorie." I HIGHLY doubt you are burning 2100 calories a day. I'm sorry I'm confused, hopefully somebody else will understand cause I may be reading it wrong.
