A fine line

There's a fine line between dieting, exercise, and nursing. Today I walked that fine line with the result of a wicked headache. I thought it was because of my head cold and lack I sleep, but no. It was because I didn't eat enough today to compensate for my exercise and nursing.

I swear I did this with the last baby. I've either gotta figure out the perfect combo of nutrition or I have to quit the diet thing all around. I know I need extra for nursing and I need even more for exercise.

The thing that sucks is I did AWESOME with the old weight watchers program and nursing back before they switched it to points plus. I wish I could go back to that. Right now I'm trying to work with MyFitnessPal. I really liked it when I wasn't nursing, but they don't have an option for nursing moms.

Anyway, after eating something and having a ibuprofen, my headache went away and I was able to exercise tonight. I only went 30 minutes, but I did it. :) 1.75 miles.

Tomorrow I'll be smarter with my nutrition.

Ooh ooh! Try nutrimirror. It has an option for nursing mamas and it keeps all of your nutrient at the forefront. I'd totally dare use it for nursing. (except that I can't nurse..) Of course MFP has an app (NM doesn't) and has more foods in it, so that's the downside.
