That's exactly it, fresh start every single day. Some people do a weekly allotment, but I've found it's better to go day to day. You may also keep a journal to note why you ate more (exercise, stress, boredom, lack of planning) or under (stress, work, lack of planning, etc). Knowing about your eating patterns is a very valuable tool.
Good job and keep up the good work!
