Ugh, weekends....

Sunday, September 16, 2012

I am so bad with my eating on the weekends. I think that, for now, I'm going to allow my Sundays to be "cheat" days. I went over my calories today (not by much), but I at very little that was actually healthy. I did still go to the gym this morning - I will not make any excuses for that.

So, I am getting better at eating during the week. I need to tweak things a bit for a couple of different reasons (lots of fruit but not veggies, getting potassium intake up, etc.) but I really need to focus on the weekends. It's hard because that is when I have time to cook, and now that it is getting cooler I have the urge to make big meals.

This is such a learning process. I don't want to set myself back too far (4lbs gone forever!) by giving in here and there, but at the same time, I don't think that one day is going to make or break my progress.

I do notice, though, that when I eat something really bad (french fries for example) my body just revolts against me. I definitely prefer the feeling of eating healthy food over garbage fast food. We ate a home cooked meal tonight, it was just chicken parm with pasta and bread. I will say, though, that hubby is a great cook :)

So, the plan is this:
1 - not beating myself up for going over calories today.
2 - learn to eat better on the weekends
3 - consider making Sunday a sort of "cheat" day
4 - otherwise keep it up!

Back to reality tomorrow. I hope everyone had a great weekend! I certainly did!

    You have to find what works best for you! It sounds like overall, you're doing just fine!

  I just did my first weekend through on spark. I had to focus on other things and kept drinking water whenever I had an 'urge' but wasn't really hungry. I did cook some larger meals, but I portion controlled and ate some leftovers for lunch on Sunday.

I've found some low cal 'treats' from Starbuck's, so I can fake cheat and treat myself at the end of the week/weekend.

I think going with your plan, especially number 1, will go a long way! I used to beat myself up when I fell off, and then I'd stay off.

You can do it!

    Great attitude. After all, we need to learn how to make healthy choices but ones that we can live with long term. emoticon
