Why is the weekend so freaking hard to keep tracking and stay within points/ranges? Why??
I find it so incredibly frustrating. This last weekend was Bad with a capital B eating-wise. I think there was very little I ate that wasn't fried up until Sunday. Sunday I ate a super healthy dinner but it doesn't undo all of Friday and Saturday!
Although, I have to say that one thing I'm learning about my habits on the weekend is that they are at least much more balanced. I eat heavier, but I'm also often way more active than I used to be. Saturday, Peggy and I walked all over downtown Vancouver and Sunday, Jon and I were out for the day and did tons of walking (and I made sure we walked a brisk pace, to get some actual exercise benefit).
I think living in Vancouver has really helped me health-wise. Being in a big city means I take public transportation and walk sooo much more. Living in the 'burbs in Washington State I just used to drive everywhere, even the mailbox! *blush*
So the lesson I've learned, at this point, is that on the weekend, I need to watch my eating more, and also pat myself on the back more for the extra activity I get in! :)
I guess in the end it all balances out...
