Weekends are very hard for me. I usually end up eating less than I should since I am so busy and I go way below on my calorie count for the day then by dinner I am usually hungry and eat crap.

Goal1: 160 (2/14/13)(Reached! 2/1/13)
Goal2: 150 (4/19/13)
Goal3: 140 (5/30/13)
Goal4: 130 (7/4/13)
Goal5: 120 (9/21/13)

Weekends can be tough. I agree, but I play this game--
My health doesn't know it is the weekend. My body doesn't know nor care that it is the weekend. Maybe my routine is different-- I can sleep in, i make a slightly different breakfast. maybe there is a evening or lunch out with friends. Sure i have errands to run. But it is just like any other day. Why treat the weekend differently than a M-Thursday? Your body doesn't know the difference. I still prepare my meals. i still eat them. maybe a little earlier, maybe a little later.
But I plan for it as well. I make sure I have fruits and veggies cut up in the car. I make sure I take time to sit and eat. I make sure i make time to exercise. I do that Monday thru thursday. What makes Friday night, saturday and sunday so special?

Need to do that weekend re-commitment! So Spinning tomorrow and Endurance Training on Sunday.

Treats today - a facial and manicure - yummy!

Anytime you feel yourself slipping, take a quick walk around the block (weather permitting). Instead of eating, laundry, clean out that cabinet you've been meaning to sort through, dance, play a game on the Wii (if you have one). Avoid being still!

Sounds like a plan! Report back here on Tuesday and tell us how you did.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

So--I am trying to be proactive so that I won't go calorie crazy over the weekend, especially since it's a long weekend for me.

Here are my commitments
Stay in calorie range
Fri - do a 30/30 class
Sat - go to spinning
Sun - endurance training
Mon - do a 30/30 class
