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!
