I train Monday - Friday because my gym is near my workplace, and I live waaaaaaay out of town so I usually don't do much more than a little cardio on the weekends.
During the week my eating is strict (easy because I bring all my food with me to work). Calories on weekdays average about 1800.
On the weekends however is when I allow myself a couple of cheats and some alcohol. My calories on Sat & Sun are in the 2200-2300 range.
My question is, how detrimental is it to have my high calorie days on non training days? As long as it all balances out calorie wise for the week, am I setting myself back or is it all good? If I eat an eatra 300 cals on Sat but on Monday I compensate by dropping 300 cals from my intake, will my Monday workout suffer?
I'm making good progress but wonder if I could be hindering myself from doing even better?
Would welcome any feedback. Thanks!
