Oh man, PLENTY of us have this issue! It's so easy to stay on track during the week, and choose lunches and snacks that will fuel my workouts, and grab a healthy side dish on the way home from work, but weekends include friends wanting to go out and lazing around with a beer and wanting to try the new restaurant down the street. I've gotten better at minimizing the damage and still counting everything (and making a couple better choices because I'm counting it), but it's definitely tough.
Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.

Thanks for your response Sparkers.
I think when I cook I am going to set aside Sunday meals and Sunday snacks. I'm going to post next week with how amazing I did! hehe.

I do weekend cooking, with the bulk of it done on Saturday. I always plan what I am going to make in advance of grocery shopping on Saturday morning. Those meals last me all week, lunch and dinner. If I get lazy on Sunday and don't feel like cooking I head to the grocery store (Publix) and buy a roast chicken and some fresh corn on the cob. I also like their chicken breast salad, which I spread over a piece of thin rye bread. I snack on baby carrot sticks and homegrown tomatoes. Another option would be to go to Subway and buy a 6-inch sandwich along with a bag of baked potato chips. I usually get the steak and cheese. Their chicken chopped salad is also very good but be sure you divide it into half because the portion is very large

I have a similar problem, and usually end up eating a lot of frozen foods like Smart Ones Meals because I am just lazy and don't want to cook. I started making "pre-made" snacks though and that helps. I pre-portion out some vegetables for snacking and even some chips that way I am certain how many calories I am eating. Good luck!

I dont' know if anyone else has this problem: During the week I am super healthy. I always have cooked beans/rice/bulgar and veggies in my fridge that I eat for lunch. Dinner consists of veggies and either chicken stir fry, turkey breast, and once a weak I eat red meat. On Sundays though... I am just so lazy and eat crap! For some reason I just nosh around and eat whatever, because I am completely off schedule. Anyone have any Sunday tips? Thanks!
