So I decided I need to get back in shape. My baby is 9 months and I have an extra 20lbs I want to drop. I started doing workouts on the three days a week I do not work. I used a pedometer and found I walk about 6 miles per day on the days I work.
For diet, I started using an app on my phone to count calories. It suggests around 1600 for me to drop weight. This app also gives more calories on days that I exercise based off the workout I do. However, it does not take in account my breastfeeding. Should i increase the amount of calories because she is still breast feeding? Should the extra calories be decreased as I produce less (I pump at work, so I know how much I'm making)? I don't want this to effect my supply, but I want to be healthy and set a good example for her as well!..... Plus i would like to be able to wear a swim suit without being entirely embarrassed.
