I overate really badly on Monday at my parents' holiday party, between junk food and drinking I totally blew it. But this week I have been pretty good. Of course, this all hit at the same time as my 3-month old's big growth spurt, and I've been hungrier than usual.
I try to eat between 1750-1900 calories each day, but this week between Monday and yesterday, I was about 1400 calories OVER that total. I realize it's a lot, but it's not enough to gain 4 pounds which is what the scale is reflecting.
Should I just go way under that range today and tomorrow to even it out a little more? I do NOT want to negatively affect my milk supply in any way, so when I know he's eating around the clock and I'm hungry, I eat. I still log it, but I do eat. I did start running this week and have been to the gym 3 times plus walking the dog. I do drink about a gallon of water every single day.
It just doesn't make sense that I screwed up, but have been redeeming myself, and I'm still up 4 pounds. I hope to see a big whoosh soon because seeing the scale go up despite trying to make it go down is very discouraging!
