But instead I ate
In my eternal quest to eat ENOUGH POTASSIUM....I was assured this was tops...1309 for one cup of cooked beet greens...and you know what
not worth it.
so...It's either 8 bananas or a supplement.
Supplement it is.
Right now I am in 'weight loss mode'.
But for a long time I was in maintenance mode.
I was in that mode because I was sick of weight loss mode.
And I discovered one thing.
To maintain..or maintain some semblence of maintenence...
You will have to do one of two t hings.
watch what you eat.
or exercise like a mad woman.
I didn't watch what I ate as much (well somewhat..never gorged on a cake or ate a whole pizza...)
My breakfast never changed.
I think breakfast is very important.
Both psychologically and physically.
Psychologically because eating breakfast takes away that excuse at 8 or 9 at night that says...
well, I didn't eat breakfast so a piece of pie won't hurt.
breakfast starts your metabolism.
It gives you energy and I think gives your day a more balanced feel.
While I might not have carefully watched everything going in my gullet..
I would have two or three day stretches where I would carefully count and then three or four where I wouldn't.
And I NEVER quit exercising..even if it was just a walk.
In fact I went one whole month just walking.
I put on a few pounds...but nothing like I would have if I had quit exercising.
So if you want a mental break from weight loss.
I would say exercise in some form daily...
keep a tally of what you eat, if not strictly..
and always eat breakfast and get enough sleep.
You shouldn't gain too much.
It worked for me..
so, for those in maintenance..
What worked for you.
I went to the gym
Had a good day food wise.
