So, the last couple of days have been rough. It's been hard for me to get to the low end of my calorie range. I find myself staring at my cupboards and fridge thinking to myself, "what can I eat to make up THAT many calories??!". I manage, but with the stress level I am at because of work, I don't seem to be very hungry.
I know that if I don't meet my calorie goals, my body may go into starvation mode and then will continue to store the fat I'm trying to get rid of! I'm trying to make sure that I have some foods around that are quick and easy. I think I need to just keep going and just make plans for these situations. I'm happy, though, because I haven't gone haywire and just consumed everything in sight, lol.
I do give myself cheat days. My weekends are cheat days. Then back to work and back on track. I find that it keeps me motivated, and I don't end up with nearly as many cravings as I would have in the past and the terrible diets I tried. Now I eat the food I want, in moderation, and on the weekend I let myself indulge a bit, not too much--which is apparent because I keep losing weight :)
