I made a plan for the week for my food and I measured everything out and added up my calories for each day. I didn’t factor in dinner but tried to allow between 300 & 500 calories for dinners. I didn’t count what I’ll burn in workouts either because I don’t know what I’ll get in or how much I’ll burn. but this was a trial week with this to see if it helps me stick to what I bring to eat at work instead of going to the snack closet or eating the lunch provided there which isn’t the best.
I didn’t count dinners because I’m being lazy and don’t feel like looking up every little ingredient. what I do know is that our meals this week aren’t too bad. we have two salad based meals, two meat, carb, veggie meals and one pasta.
I’m not sure how many calories I should be taking in to lose weight at this point because I’m breastfeeding. I’m shooting for 1800-1900 a day. this week I might go over a couple days and should be at or under on the other days.
so we’ll see what the scale says after this week ends.
