weekends have ALWAYS been my achilles heel - i used to always plan my weekly weigh-in on thursday, just so that i could have all week long to try and undo the eating i did over the weekend. so here i am, with a perfect recipe for failure and making excuses for myself: saturday of the last long weekend of the summer, i'm only 2 weeks into my new healthy lifestyle, and my kids are driving me bananas... in the past this would always be a 100% guaranteed recipe to give myself permission to eat poorly all long weekend, to not exercise, and then to feel frustrated and disappointed with myself when i stepped on the scale after my 3 day binge.
this time, more proof that i am approaching this from a better mindset: first thing this saturday morning i got up and went to an insanely challenging spin class! i instantly felt invigorated (after i wanted to die of course! that was a TOUGH class!), and much more importantly, i felt very motivated to not eat poorly and undo all of my hard work. i even went so far as to enter all of my food for the day and run the nutritional report, to keep me from being tempted... so when my kids and hubby are having junk food for our family movie night tonight, i'm going to be enjoying some delicious fat free greek yogurt with fresh berries, and feeling fantastic about myself!!
