Making up for over eating..

On Tuesday night I ate 900 calories over my day. This doesn't happen to me often. I divided it out to make up for it by quick adding 225 calories per day.. Putting me at 1100 for 4 days! I think it was a stupid choice considering how starving I feel. Have any of yall ever done this? The only reason I didn't just make it up with exericise is because I work out on fitness blender at home.. I have no activity tracker and don't eat back exercise calories anyway.

    If you restrict yourself that much the next several days, you meant end up binging again. Maybe a smaller deficit or just learn your lesson and move on :)

    I think you are right. I did it yesterday and have my day today prelogged and it's almost dinner time.. Tomorrow I'm going back to normal! Lol

    I don't really make up after the fact. If I plan and save up calories, fine. In this instance I would definitely not go that low. It doesn't have to be perfect. Just make sure you hit your goal the rest of the week and accept you MAY lose a little less this week. 900 is insignificant- Move on.

    You can always go walk a few miles, for a few days in a row and just burn it up.
    Eating less makes me grumpy.

    It is so frustrating because it wasn't even anything super exciting like pizza or a dinner out. I literally walked around the house grabbing random handfuls of goldfish.. A cheese stick.. PB bread... Oh well. I had a stressful day Tuesday (a lovely disagreement with my husband). Both don't happen often. So moving on. lol

    Yup. Makes total sense. Thank you.

    Move on.. you know the saying "One workout does not make you skinny and one meal does not make you fat." Lesson learned and be more aware moving forward.. (Goldfish are banned from my house..awesome stress snacking food filled with empty calories that add up so quickly)

    I did this on Saturday. i do catering on Saturdays and the job on Saturday was just 9 hours on my feet until 1:30am. Everyone was in a bad mood and that put me in one too. We were so busy I didn't get to eat my "clean" food i usually bring. By the time work was done I was so hungry and annoyed I just said eff it, I want this this this and this. I ate a lot more than 900 calories but decided to just let it go and be good the rest of the week. Want this water weight to go away though!

    We went to an all you can eat place last night, and tonight we're going to a pasta restaurant. We go out to dinner maybe once every couple of months, so two nights in a row has completely thrown me.
    The only thing I can do is walk my *kitten* off and try and get into the green again.

    So yeah, my advice is to try and exercise it off.
