It's unreal how much I base my feelings on my weight!! Today I weighed in again for the biggest loser competition at work and I am up 5 lbs. from 3 wks. ago. I went back to work on April 27, from maternity leave, and I know that I have eaten fast food for breakfast just so that I can have breakfast because it's been a struggle to get out of the house with both of the kids on time. I am making excuses here, I realize that, but 5 lbs. I run every day on the treadmill and strength train but obviously it's not combating what I am eating.
The thing that bothers me is that I am intelligent enough to realize that McDonald's isn't a good choice but I justified the calorie intake by saying that I need to eat about 2200 calories a day for breastfeeding.
This morning I did eat at home, 2 whole grain waffles, grapes and a glass of skim milk. My carb count was over 50, not good for the diabetic in me, but the calories were only at 275 so it's not a happy medium. I'm going to have to figure it out!!
