Need help suggestions

Friday, November 22, 2013

I have been on a roller coaster of gaining a couple pounds on my long weekends off and then loosing them again plus usually a little when back in a more routine environment. I am looking for some suggestions assistance with making my long weekends more routine. I work 4 ten hour days. my weeks rotate so that every other weekend I have a four day weekend. Friday through Monday off and the following weekend is just a two day weekend. It is these long weekends when I tend to gain a little weight and forget to log into spark. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Bodies like routines. Know what you're going to eat and how long it takes to prepare so you always eat meals about the same time. If you're eating more on weekends, it might be because you're bored. Find something to keep your hands busy!

    Plan your meals ahead of time and stick to the plan. It is so easy to get lost in the busy part of our weekends that we tend to forget to track or we eat mindlessly. My spark coach challenge today is to plan all my meals for tomorrow. Perfect timing since it is Saturday.

Eating at home rather than meals out makes a huge difference too. Ordering smaller meals out keeps the calorie intake down as well. And track everything, no matter what!

    Do you have a smart phone? (I don't, but I'm home a lot so can do it on my laptop.) If you have a smartphone, take a few minutes to log on and put your stuff in. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, if you're on a upper level. Park further away. On your breaks walk around or up and down a hallway. Anyway, just a few suggestions. emoticon emoticon I hope some of these helped. Keep on Keeping on.
