Weekends are killing me!
Monday, March 25, 2013
For the second weekend in a row, I've experienced some crappy eating and no exercise!
I'm usually busier during the week, so I don't know what it is about weekends that completely derail all my good efforts! Well, I have a pretty good idea.
During the week, I'm on a schedule. I get up the same time every day, have the same routine, pretty much eat the same breakfast and pack the same lunch. The evenings are pretty hectic, but it's planned chaos.
Yes, I've usually planned my chaos for the weekend, but it's a little more flexible. I had "plans" to run Friday after work. DH, DD#2 & friend didn't want to wait on me and they ran before I got off work. I had to take DD#1 to work and then DD#2 & 3 to church for a community service activity. I didn't get to run, but I picked up fish at the church fish fry (they have baked too and it's really good). I didn't eat any of the baked goods (the Woman's Club had a bake sale), but what do I do later in the evening? - I eat 2 peanut butter eggs! I actually felt gross the rest of the night and Saturday morning (you think I would have learned my lesson!).
I woke up late Saturday (DH's sleeping in on Saturdays is messing me up - see how I like to blame other people!) and had enough time to do some laundry and clean the kitchen before heading out to basketball. We got back from basketball and then went to Hobby Lobby for some stuff DD#1 needed for school on Monday (she's in 2 art classes). We picked up Chick filet for dinner. More crappy eating ensued later that evening!
Sunday morning DH made a big breakfast. I was supposed to go hiking with my sister and pick up my great-nephew. It was a cold & rainy weekend, so my niece didn't go camping. Sunday afternoon the rain had stopped, but the greenway trails were all closed due to flooding. There are other trails and of course the indoor & outdoor track, but I opted to lounge around on Sunday (keep in mind I'm still doing some housework, so not totally lounging). DH took DD#1 and boyfriend to a Mexican place that serves authentic Mexican food. I had some of a chicken fajita. It was good, but it really upset my stomach! Nothing worse than feeling sick during a long, crowded Palm Sunday Mass! I took boyfriend home after church and then picked DD#2 back up at church. I didn't eat dinner Sunday night, but once again, found myself eating crap!
Anyway, I'm not really concerned about the exercise. I still get in about 5 good workouts a week (running, exercise DVD, walking), especially in the Spring & Summer. Like I said, I rarely just "lounge around", my "lazy days" include a lot of house & yard work.
What still concerns me is the mindless, crappy, eating! I usually get it "back in control", but I don't want to go a couple of months like Oct - Jan. and then find myself 10+ lbs. over goal!
I gained a lb. last week, so I've still got 7 more lbs. to go to get back to WW goal! I'm sure this weekend didn't do anything for the "cause".
Oh well, back to routine - healthy breakfast and packed healthy lunch. I've got to find my willpower for the weekends!
