Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with good support.
I picked up some refined sugar-free almond/cashew butter tonight. It isn't as appealing to me as the crunchy all-natural peanut butter. I eliminated the peanut butter from my food plan. This is similar, but different enough, it might be okay. Same boundaries--every gram weighed and no spoon licking!! It'll certainly provide a nice calorie boost when the budget is lower. It'll be used sparingly. That stuff is made of gold, apparently.
At the risk of sounding annoying to some, I eat well enough--I'm just not hungry between meals. Some of my meals are likely too big. And still, getting enough calories is difficult some days. That's the challenge for me in maintenance mode. It's a very "good problem." But--coming from where I've been, it's something to seriously consider because some go the other way and start eating too little on purpose. I can't imagine doing that. I often find myself eating the last food of day--not because I'm hungry; because I'm trying to hit budget, and anyway-- maybe I need to shut it off tonight and revisit this tomorrow. I need sleep.
