increasing my calories

Saturday, August 29, 2015

I do an app called youfood, I love it, Its a picture based app for food and exercise although I still count calories here being able to LOOK at your day really helps.
I have picked up on a pattern by looking at my days, first it was I do good all week then blow it on the weekend. So I reigned in the weekend bit about 2 weeks ago and the strangest thing happened about mid-week I would go on a crazy binge. So week after week I've been bingeing one way or another and you know what my weight only fluctuates a pound or two, my measurements haven't really changed in a few weeks.
I have been working out more consistently the last two weeks, and hope to continue with this path and perhaps my measurements will start moving again...
Anyway I have decided to increase my calories in the earlier part of the day (where I pack my snacks and lunch for work) I think I'm bingeing because my body needs it, and I think it would be far healthier for me to level my calorie intake day to day instead of doubling my intake one day of the week in a massive free for all lol
I work hard on my feet 8 hours a day moving, and lifting. I have a tracker and on average I log 3 hours of consistent movement, some days up to 5, and I cant help but ponder perhaps my measurements aren't changing because my body is clinging to storage?
So that is the plan play with increasing my intake and see what happens, besides scheduled snacks are always healthier than a binge no matter how healthy I TRY to make it
