When I was in the weight loss phase, on the very rare occasions I exceeded my daily calorie budget, I would draw a line in the sand for that day and "make up for it" in the next day or next two days that followed i.e. increasing my deficit on that day whether by way of exercise or eating a bit less.
Now that I'm in maintenance, I'm wondering whether I should follow the same approach or whether I just move on and pretend the day didn't exist and start the new day as a new day and eat my full daily budget of calories.
What does everyone else do? In the scheme of things I know it doesn't matter - my weight fluctuates like everyone else's and ultimately, a day or two here and there really don't seem to affect my weight overall, it's more just trying to figure out what my approach should be.
