It's interesting being in maintenance mode on Weight Watchers. I know it's kind of silly but I found security in my 26 point target and now that it's 29, I'm a little unsure. I'm such a creature of habit that I really have to make sure that I eat all my daily points and weekly points or I will surely have some left over which means I find myself scheduling in things to eat even though I'm pretty sure I won't be hungry then. Usually, it turns out that, indeed, I'm not hungry then and don't eat what I scheduled and have points left over for the day. So it's a re-learning process to figure out what I need to do to maintain my weight. So far, though, for two weeks on maintenance, I've been successful.
Anyway, here's a little tweak to what I've been eating and I picked it up from an article in Runner's Magazine. Three or so days out of the week I have two whole boiled eggs (4 points), a slice of sprouted wheat toast (1 point) with a teaspoon of Earth Balance (1 point), a yogurt smoothie (6 points) or oatmeal (5 points) with blueberries and a piece of fruit. The tweak I've discovered is having the toast with two teaspoons of almond or peanut butter (which is 1.5 points and a good amount of protein and fat) not Earth Balance (which is 1 point and only fat). I mean, it really holds me such that I don't need the smoothie/yogurt. But that makes my breakfast not as point heavy so I have to figure out how to make it up throughout the day.
I'm also realizing that while I am seeing a lot of more definition from weight lifting, I'd like to see more and I think the key is diet. So I'm going to be doing some research to find out how to make other little tweaks that support muscle building.
