I've found that to keep my body from adjusting to my calorie intake when I'm dieting that I have to mix things up.
So, if I stay on track with my calories and exercise Sunday through Friday I give myself a bit of a break on Saturday. The next week I will choose a different day. I'll add more exercise or I'll have a treat. Staying away from a routine is best for me.

It's so important to find a few things you like and mix them up. Our bodies adapt to what we do consistently - so if we only walk, or only do one type of cardio - eventually our bodies will resist us. Find a couple of things you enjoy and mix up the days you do them on!
