Glad to have others that know what I mean!
I notice that some have different calorie goals on the weekends, so that they can adjust as needed to weekend activity. Makes sense to be to raise your calorie limit on the weekends as long as you are in a deficit (even if it's a small one). Weekends are actually better for me as I have more time to cook. It is cold and rainy here (still) and I made a nice chicken stew today.
