SparkPeople Weekend Weight Busters Team Messageboard Emoticon If You Got In 10 Minutes Of Activity <em>104</em> Sun, 11 Mar 2018 14:37:45 EST Emoticon How You Are This Weekend <em>104</em> Sun, 11 Mar 2018 14:36:39 EST Weekend of 9/11 This was the first weekend I really tried to control myself and be aware of my diet and exercise. It still amazes me how difficult those two days are! I think as long as I can keep myself aware and not fall back into old habits I can make weekends an easy two days. <BR> <BR> While this past week did show a net loss my weigh in on Friday was 2# less than my weigh in today. Reasons for that being a lack of exercise, with the air quality being so terrible and my overall laziness I didn't get to... Mon, 14 Sep 2015 12:19:20 EST Hi there!! I am new to this team!

This month has been a little rough for me. The weather has gotten nice out & so many things to do. Not so good healthy choices on the weekends. I try my best such as chicken sandwiches & go for walks but I think the cocktails get the best of me. <BR> <BR> Heather Sat, 31 May 2014 11:11:01 EST Quiet weekend. What is everyone else up to? I'm planning to swim and do some water exercise Friday evening after work. I have an early morning swim technique class that I am looking forward to attending Saturday. After that it will be mostly chores and errands, and another swim on Sunday. I want to make time for some nice fall walks--I love this time of year in New England! <BR> <BR> I was sick last weekend and strayed from the diet. Now that I'm feeling much better, I'm going to work hard to keep myself on track. <BR> <BR> I think s... Thu, 10 Oct 2013 13:16:58 EST Looking forward to a low-key weekend My partner has the bad upper-respiratory bug that I'm just getting over, and so we cancelled our plans to attend a big event tomorrow. It is a shame, since he requested and got the time off (he works nights and weekends, but we'll keep our germs home and avoid a long, tiring drive. I'm feeling much better, but could still use some rest so I am actually looking forward to a day off. Fri, 4 Oct 2013 10:18:04 EST Going apple-picking with good friends tomorrow I love fall in New England. We'll have a picnic afterwards. I'm looking forward to it, but I get apprehensive about the idea of what sort of temptations I'll face. <BR> <BR> Here's what I'm doing to prepare: <BR> I found a SP recipe for crispy oven baked chicken and cole slaw that I will make. <BR> I'm also making cookies, and planning to send the leftovers home for their kids to enjoy (so I don't have any around the house, beckoning to me). <BR> Doing extra exercise today and tomorrow: wa... Fri, 13 Sep 2013 12:50:33 EST Hello everyone! I am new to the team but super excited to be here. I really hope this helps. I can diet all week and as soon as the weekend hits it seems like everything I worked so hard for goes out the window and I don't want to do that anymore! Thu, 12 Sep 2013 04:20:21 EST Stay Motivated Every Weekend - Post your plans! We're all here for the same reason. Weekends are tough, right?! I work a M-F job and being off work makes it difficult for me to resist those fun nights out with friends and dinner with family, and I believe it's important to do things that make you happy and allow you to unwind. <BR> <BR> Tell me about your goal. What would you like to accomplish most on the weekends? <BR> Is it the lack of exercise that has you bummed? <BR> Are you hoping to make healthier choices at restaurants? <BR> Do... Wed, 28 Aug 2013 14:55:00 EST Got Offtrack This Weekend Hi Everybody! I've been reading your posts and feeling really good about being a part of a group so committed to healthy weight loss. I guess I got complacent because this weekend I just could not make myself exercise plus had constant cravings. I hit the snooze button again and again this morning until it was too late to do anything. <BR> <BR> I was feeling really down about myself and then I had the most amazing epiphany! Instead of grousing about exercising, I should get on my knees a... Mon, 1 Jul 2013 16:05:48 EST Will Post How Saturday Went This Evening!

Fri, 24 May 2013 17:34:59 EST I will Post Weekend at Weekend! Anybody else? I will Post On Friday evening through to Sunday! Mon, 20 May 2013 10:13:36 EST New to team! I'm relatively new to SparkPeople and just found this team while browsing. Weekends are a big challenge for me, so I am very happy to find that I'm not alone. Although I exercise on the weekends, being out of my M-F routine is hard for me. I find too many opportunities for mischief, temptation, and well-meaning sabotage, along with the wrong kinds of "rewards". (Vacations are even harder for me). I hope I can find some accountability and moral support here. Wed, 20 Mar 2013 11:50:06 EST hi new here Hi I have trouble sticking on my plan during weeknds for the past two months.sabotages sabotages everywhere.Family relaxes and get caught in the overeating too.hope to get some accountability here. <BR> Hi everyone! <em>213</em> Wed, 6 Mar 2013 09:18:39 EST New Joiner - Whats the challenge for the weekend I am 43 and a mother of a gorgeous and extremely active 8 1/2 yr old. <BR> I am engaged to the man of my dreams - going on two years.... three into the relationship after a life long time of friendship and military distnaces and bad relationships. <BR> My daughter takes dance three days a week and is about to start dancing for the studio competitive team this coming summer....

Hi All, <BR> <BR> My name is Sarah. Weekends seem to be the hardest time for tracking and paying attention to food intake. I do get my exercise in on the weekends, but doesn't seem to compensate for my food and alcohol intake. <BR> <BR> I have a new mini-goal I've created for myself. My goal is to not weigh more on Monday than I did on Friday. <BR> <BR> So far, it's working fairly well. I can't wait to meet up with you all. <BR> <BR> Sarah Sun, 23 Dec 2012 09:50:20 EST First Post.. :) I've been using SparkPeople for a good three months now and I figured its about time I get to posting and meet you wonderful people! Since August I've lost 15 pounds. 15 more to go! Since I started losing weight about 3 years ago, I've lost about 50 pounds to this point.

I got married 3 and half years ago and since then I have put on a stone and a half! I know it doesn't sound a lot, but to me it is! My current job causes me a lot of stress, and my husbands ex (he has 2 kids) stresses me out too, so this isn't helping me. I am trying to find a new job, but I think my lack...

I'm looking forward to going to Vancouver, BC this weekend but I'm dreading the prospect of being lured by all the yummy places where my husband wants to eat.

HI Everyone, <BR> <BR> This group was written for me! <BR> <BR> My weekends are an absolute dieting nightmare for me. I can be as good as gold in the week, but come the weekend I just fall apart! <BR> So far ive managed to cut down on the snacks, or choose lower fat versions. If we go to the cinema at weekend I now take some caramel snack a jacks instead of having a large popcorn. <BR> Slowly but surely I am getting there averaging a 1b a week at mo so not too bad, but I could do be... Wed, 2 May 2012 08:14:29 EST Time to Lose it! I've been a member of sparkspeople for some time but always get off track. Usually this tends to happen on weekends. We all know it, time to chill out, get lazy, eat unhealthy food. So with me, it tends to be that I lose the weight during the week and gain it right back in the weekend. Not anymore! I'm tired of it. It throws me off loop, my gained energy and metabolism increase go away. I want to work it off and keep on track, specially during those hard weekends. So, I joined this challenge ... Mon, 26 Mar 2012 16:18:56 EST Hello! Hey everyone. My name is Brandy and I'm not only new to this team but to SparkPeople as well. I joined this team because the weekends are the worst for me. I pretty much undo all the good work I've done through the week. I'm always on the go so it's fast food for me. Plus I cook through the week I don't like cooking on the weekends. I think I'll get the support and motivation from being on this team. Tue, 20 Mar 2012 15:36:49 EST Looking for people like me! My name is Dawn. I have been on the weight roller coaster most of my life. As a child I cant say I was overweight but a larger size strong sturdy farm kid that ate good home cooked meals everyday. When your a child kids cant tell the difference between someone being larger sized or fat so of course I was teased pretty much all my child hood years. When I became 12/13 yrs old I decided I was going to be skinny. So I became anorexic. Sure I was skinny. I went from 200 lbs to 135 in 3 months. I ... Sat, 10 Mar 2012 09:12:34 EST starting slow Hey all, I am a newbie here, joined and have been fixing the healthier meals for my family for 10 days now. Not able to exercise yet but next week I am released from my doctor to go forth! Feeling a bit disappointed that I actually gained 2 pounds this week. Maybe its water retention or PMS? I am not going to let it discourage me. I am at or below the calorie range and I am not hungry at all. Guess I am a slow starter! Wed, 7 Mar 2012 20:54:41 EST weekends are my hardest I can watch what I eat all week but when the weekends come I seem to do really bad, any advice on how to change this habit Thu, 1 Mar 2012 18:53:10 EST Newbie :) Hi everybody!!

I have been VERY depressed and have gained SOOOO much weight and I am scared I won't be able to stick to ANY diet/healthy lifestyle plan. However, I am determined to TRY for my grandchildren. One of my granddaughters (she was 10) asked me if I knew why she liked to spend so much time with me, when I said no she replied " I love you and I'm afraid that what happened to grandpa will happen to you and I won't get to tell you goodbye either."

I'm new to the whole gardening experience but I love to be outdoors with nature. I was inspired by one of my missionary trips where a pastor's wife started her own garden in Kansas. I wanted to try to have a small vegtable garden this year. Planned on having all sorts of veggies but I planted seeds 3 weeks ago but only a few started growing. I think it was still to cold. I'm going to try to start tomatoe seeds indoors to start them out and ... Sat, 4 Feb 2012 22:49:14 EST Dreaded weekend Well sign up on Friday with weekend weight buster, and this weekend didn't go well. Eating out on Friday night indulge a bit too much. Saturday basketball game did it again with the nachos. Sunday stay on plan. So I'm at 30% on where I want to be. I didn't make a plan ahead for my weekend. I know having no plan is a plan to fell. Change needed- a plan for the weekend. Focus on my weight loss goal Thursday to make the Friday the catalyst for change. <BR> Wed, 25 Jan 2012 13:37:20 EST Hi! Hi my name is Nicole.

Hi, I'm Abby, and during the week, have no problem sticking to a healthy diet simply because of the routine. I know that I'm supposed to eat breakfast at 7:00 a.m., eat lunch at 12:00 p.m., a snack at 3:00 p.m., and dinner at 6:30 p.m. But the weekends totally lack that routine in my house. Sometimes, I don't get around to lunch until 2 p.m., and that throws my eating off all day! Not in the sense that I eat less, but the opposite! A lot of the time, I eat because I THINK I'm hungry, and am u... Tue, 6 Dec 2011 20:03:41 EST Silly quick question.. Hey all! <BR> <BR> I'm in a hurry, but will come and intro myself better....

I am 37yrs old, I am disabled and living with my mom, who is my strongest supporter. When I weighed 311lbs and feeling like I didn't look it, I had an Ah ha moment. My brother got married, and I saw a picture of myself. I could have just died!! I have, before SP, lost 70 on my own. Moved here, to N.Adams, MA. and decided to join the nearby gym.

It is perfect! I tend to find time on the weekends to workout - and really it's not about finding time, it's more about finding motivation. I am eager to start this challenge --- I know it's Sunday now, so I figure I'll start & hope for more successful numbers from here on out!

Tue, 4 Oct 2011 15:35:44 EST Hello I figured there had to be other people out there with the same problem as me! I'm a college kid, and less-than-savory cafeteria food generally keeps me eating carefully during the week, but sometimes I feel like the world is out to get me on the weekends--my roommate bakes, there's good food at dances, and so on. Hope to find some tips and encouragement here, and will cheer for the rest of you determined souls! Sun, 25 Sep 2011 22:19:41 EST Hey. . .

I am a mother of two beautiful children so the weekends have become a lot easier for me to be more cautious of what I eat. Because im always on the go I eat what little I can when they are asleep and I walk a lot. Although 5,000 steps is not something I have yet to master in a day. <BR> Good luck to any and every one on this team. Sun, 24 Jul 2011 03:02:44 EST ! WEEKEND WARRIORS CHALLENGE (New Member) Hi my name is Melanie Louise Jackson (aka Grease31), <BR> <BR> I've joined this group, cos i always find the weekends challenging (with being on a so-called permanent diet), i find it hard to know what to eat, as i'm on a strict food regime (monday-friday/sunday), (saturday- day off), if anyone has any hints/tips/advice that they cud give me i wud be eternally gratefull (god knows i need all the bloody help that i can get), if anyone needs any information they are quite welcome to browse my ... Fri, 22 Jul 2011 12:18:45 EST Hola! I just wanted to introduced myself! :) Here we go to survive and don't do any damage during the weekends :) <BR> <BR> <em>224</em> Mon, 11 Jul 2011 22:49:44 EST I'm new and just kicked out my first weekend! Just had to say that joining this group has really pushed me this weekend. I kept thinking to myself "I have to log in, I have to drink my water, I have to go out and walk" all because I knew I could come here and say I DID IT....and everyone here would know just how important that is! Mon, 11 Jul 2011 17:02:08 EST Another weekend warrior Hello everyone :) I am always struggling during the weekends, and hope this forum is the solution for me! This past weekend was tough, I was at a wedding on Saturday and have another wedding this Saturday. I am going to make a plan for the upcoming weekend and stick to it. Just because you are at a party is no excuse for poor eating. <BR> <BR> Being at work during the week makes eating healthy pretty easy, but when I am at home on the weekends with the hubby and kids things get a little craz... Mon, 13 Jun 2011 08:42:22 EST New to watching myself on the weekends I've been trying to cracck down on myself when it comes to the weekends. The weekends is when I have the most time, but I make excuses and end up being a lazy bum. Getting on the right track takes one day at a time, and I really need to stop taking a weekend vacation. Fri, 10 Jun 2011 23:12:27 EST Newbie New here! Weekends have been horrible. Really sure that if I'm able to handle my weekends, I'll fly to my goal. Tue, 7 Jun 2011 09:34:07 EST The Bragging Rights Thread! Monday morning I did my weigh-in after the weekend and I was down to 181 lbs! I started at 192, so I have officially lost more than 10 lbs since starting SparkPeople. Best of all, I have lost nearly 4% of body fat and I am stronger and feel so much better I can't believe it took me this long to start doing something about my weight and health. Life is good right now. <BR> <BR> <em>224</em> <BR> <BR> I am very proud of myself, and want to brag about it everywhere I can, so I thought maybe... Tue, 12 Apr 2011 12:51:30 EST April 8 - 10 Since my husband started a new job this past week, he now has Saturdays off. This is our first Saturday together in a long time and I'm torn between going crazy and eating like sh!t or going out and doing something productive. (Hike in the mountains or go walk on the beach.) <BR> Debates, debates. <BR> Since the weather is decent I want to clean out my car and I have to finish up a paper and test for my Sociology class. Other than that, not sure what my plans are for this weekend. <BR> <BR... Sat, 9 Apr 2011 12:38:09 EST April 1 - 3 I am so happy right annoying and extremely loud neighbors (and I mean loud for Jersey) are moving out! <BR> <BR> I've been "off" all week, as midterms had me stressed and I didn't prepare, food-wise, for the week. <BR> <BR> This weekend I'm planning on getting some goals together for this month, working on school stuff and going a Yankee game on Sunday. (Please God...let the weather be good.) <BR> <BR> Fri, 1 Apr 2011 18:17:56 EST Almost over...! We went to the gym and did cardio yesterday, and I have managed to resist snacking almost all day long... almost over. Almost over...! Almost an end to the weekend! Sun, 27 Mar 2011 22:28:54 EST Back in it! Hi all!!! <BR> <BR> I know I've been MIA lately, but I'm getting myself back on the right track now. I started to derail, but I've got my priorities straight this least I hope so. <BR> <BR> So, how is everyone doing??? I really need to catch up and get to any new people!! <em>213</em> Wed, 23 Mar 2011 14:25:01 EST Laundry Day! For the weekend, my husband and I signed up for a "free for all members" special class at the gym. It's on Sunday, at 2:00PM, and it's a full hour of supposedly brutal ab-focused routines. <BR> <BR> So my personal challenge for Sunday is: Survive the Laundry Day! <BR> <BR> What is everyone else doing? <em>30</em> Fri, 18 Mar 2011 22:35:43 EST Any gamers out there...? That's me. Video game lover, avid reader, movie watcher... in short, everything I enjoy doing on my day off leads to laying motionless on the couch. The unfortunate side effects of eating lots of snacks while laying motionless on the couch is what led me here. <BR> <BR> Hello everyone! nice to met you. :) Wed, 16 Mar 2011 00:54:41 EST March 10 - 12 Horrible week of eating and no exercise. <BR> I am going to spend this weekend making a plan and getting things in order. <BR> That's all there is to it. <BR> An occasionally treat is okay, but I've been to Sonic three times this week. I feel disgusting. <BR> <BR> This weekend I will get serious. <BR> There will be changes. <BR> Thu, 10 Mar 2011 23:33:36 EST March 4 - 6 Hello everyone! <BR> <BR> This has been a productive weekend so far: bought new stuff for the bedroom and bathroom, cleaned, worked on some scrapbook pages and took my brother to get a tattoo (a gift from me for his 30th birthday). Tomorrow is lots of studying, working on finishing a paper for school and some reviews and tests. I will also do some food shopping and more organizing. <BR> <BR> My eating has been out of control lately. Garbage, garbage, garbage. I need to starting making bett... Sun, 6 Mar 2011 01:48:11 EST Feb 25 - 27 Hello, happy rainy Friday! <BR> <BR> I'm determined not to stress out about anything this weekend but try to get stuff done. <BR> <BR> exercise <BR> grocery shopping <BR> finish two small readings <BR> clean the bathroom <BR> catch up on classwork <BR> visit a friend on Sat <BR> go to dinner with a friend tonight (and have the veggie wrap!) <BR> finish rest of Canada research <BR> <BR> I'll check back in later. <BR> Hope everyone has a great and productive Friday! Fri, 25 Feb 2011 08:36:26 EST Hi, I'm new here! Hello, my name is Alicia and I'm new to Spark! I'm 46, female, peri-menopausal, and over weight a bit. I have two teen boys and I try to cook healthy. I LOVE to cook! It's been several years since I've exercised regularly, but it's HIGH TIME! I Really need to lose about 25 lbs to look and feel my best. So far, after a week of tracking, it's been great! The weekends, we're usually more active than during the week, BUT, I love a margarita, a glass or wine and Mexican food. Soooo, any advic... Fri, 18 Feb 2011 16:09:21 EST Feb. 18-20 A little late but are we ready to conquer another weekend?!? I feel myself coming down with a cold thanks to my kids for sharing but maybe it will help with the eating. My brother is visiting this weekend and that usually involves lots of food. I took today off from exercise and I am hoping to get a run in tomorrow and then meeting my personal trainer on Sunday. Have a good weekend all and talk with you on Monday! Fri, 18 Feb 2011 15:46:15 EST February 11-13, 2011 I noticed several new members this week, so I thought I'd go ahead and start a weekend thread. <BR> <BR> What are your plans for the weekend? What do you think will cause you the most problems? Anything the rest of us can offer advice for? And how is the whole "Valentine's Day" thing going to affect you? <BR> <BR> I don't know what I am doing on Saturday yet, but Friday night I'm going to dinner at my parent's house. Dad is recovering from heart surgery, so everything there is healthy, ... Thu, 10 Feb 2011 15:12:36 EST Any Golfers Out There? As a member of the Weekend Warrior Challenge, I like to get in as much golf as I can over the weekends (weather permitting). It's amazing how many calories you can burn playing a round of golf, even riding in a cart. It would be fun to meet some of my fellow teammates and play a round of golf. I live in south central WA, but go to the west side occasionally. Maybe we can hook up? <BR> <em>278</em> Thu, 10 Feb 2011 13:41:53 EST New to the team and to SP I'm glad I found this team. I'm normally an intelligent and alert mom of a three year old girl, pushing 40. But when the evening and weekend comes along, I turn stupid. Thu, 10 Feb 2011 06:38:11 EST Newbie here also Weekends are going to be hard. I just started a healthier lifestyle last Sunday and so this is my first weekend.. I failed big time. On a good note I did eat my healthy snacks instead of binging on high fat foods (potato chips ect). Atleast i did make some better choices. Anyways Hello everyone Im glad to be here, and good luck on the rest of youre weekend. Sun, 6 Feb 2011 10:52:17 EST weekends are so hard its so tuff to stay on track, with pizzas getting ordered and lazy time Sat, 15 Jan 2011 09:57:53 EST January 7-9 Our big snowstorm for this weekend turned into pretty scenery and a little slush. Must not have been that bad since I can hear three kids from across the street playing soccer. <BR> <BR> My goals for this weekend: <BR> put away my clean laundry <BR> make meal plans for next week <BR> try to organize my desk Fri, 7 Jan 2011 20:04:10 EST New to SparkPeople =) Hi! I'm Sarah Anne, and I'm a sophomore in college looking to lead a healthy lifestyle. I have been using the website FatSecret for over a year to track my calories, but I recently discovered SparkPeople and prefer the supportive community and focus on general well-being that it offers. New year, new perspective! <BR> <BR> For the full story of why I'm here, see my SparkPage, but here's the summary: I gained about 10 pounds my first semester of college and then lost 20 by the summer. Now (th... Sun, 2 Jan 2011 10:27:46 EST Christmas Weekend 2010 Merry Christmas everyone! I hope that whether you celebrate this holiday or not, you enjoy a good weekend and get a little something that you wish for! <BR> <BR> Does anyone want to share their weekend plans, or how you'll avoid the usual holiday pitfalls? <BR> <BR> For me, I will help feed and water the horses at the barn where my sister boards her horse, so the owner can have the day off and enjoy the holiday without worrying about the horses. It's a good deed, and good exercise for me. Sat, 25 Dec 2010 09:45:23 EST December 17 - 19 After three years of not getting sick, a cold finally caught up with me. Even though I'm feeling off, I'm still in a pretty good mood. (NyQuil high) <BR> <BR> I'm just trying to do stuff in small doses. Some dishes, clean off the coffee table, make the bed, etc. <BR> <BR> Hopefully the house will get somewhat organized and I won't overdo it. Meanwhile it's tea, water and soup! And my BFF, NyQuil. Fri, 17 Dec 2010 22:52:22 EST "Someday List" I need your help on this. I want to continue to do one thing on my "Someday List" every week (usually over the weekend--no time otherwise). But my neighbor who started this with me hasn't been able to follow through with me, so I'm losing my accountability. <BR> <BR> So here's what I proposed: <BR> Each week, post ONE THING that you plan to accomplish by the end of the next weekend. <BR> <BR> It may be something you need help doing (like hiring someone to move that old washing machi... Tue, 7 Dec 2010 11:51:33 EST Weekend Dec 3-5, 2010 This weekend I am spending a lot of time supporting a friend who is depressed. So I'm having trouble finding time to get my exercise in. BUT I am going curling tonight, and I am going to try to squeeze in my pushup, situp and squats challenges. I will also focus on eating my proper meals. Sat, 4 Dec 2010 10:20:02 EST Weekend Nov 12 - 14 (maybe) Hi Everyone! <BR> <BR> I just wanted to check in and see how you all are doing. I know we haven't had any posts here in awhile. <BR> Since the time change, things feel totally out of wack. Sat, 13 Nov 2010 12:49:58 EST Weekend 20 - 22 Hey everyone! <BR> <BR> I thought I'd get a jump on this weekend's thread. (Before I do my Biggest Loser weigh-in at work tomorrow and don't feel like posting here.) <BR> <BR> I plan on: working out, visiting a friend, going to church, housework, organizing, reading and cleaning out my car. <BR> <BR> I want to stay in my calories and am really going to focus on making food and eating just that. <BR> <BR> What about you guys? Thu, 19 Aug 2010 22:40:21 EST The Weekend of September 14th - 15th Happy Weekend All! I noticed no one started a message for this weekend, so I thought I'd give it a shot. <BR> <BR> This weekend I actually work Sat. and Sun. and then Monday 12 hour night shifts. Today is Saturday and I am proud of myself for staying within my calorie count for the day ( I usually don't to that on weekends). I didn't exercise today except for a little light cleaning around the house, and taking care of my baby. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow I won't be able to exercise either beca... Sat, 14 Aug 2010 23:21:16 EST Weekend August 6 - 8 Busy weekend, filled with a lot of cleaning/organizing. Today I'm going to Kona Grill with friends and family. Tonight I'm hosting the UFC pay per view at my house. Tomorrow is a birthday dinner for my brother at Beni-Hana (sp). <BR> <BR> I am co-running a Biggest Loser contest at work and we just had our initial way-ins yesterday. I will keep you guys posted. <BR> <BR> So...what's everyone up to this weekend? Sat, 7 Aug 2010 08:55:42 EST WEEKEND OF JULY 30 - AUGUST 1 Wow, the first of August already! Time has been flying by this year. <BR> <BR> So what's everyone up to this weekend? <BR> <BR> Tomorrow I'm going to visit a friend, and then go shopping for a first birthday gift to give to a one year old at her party later. In between I will cook and exercise. <BR> No definite plans for Sunday yet except exercise. <BR> <BR> I've been obsessed with tracking my food and seeing how much more "bang for my buck" I can get. <BR> <BR> On another note, my town'... Fri, 30 Jul 2010 21:34:29 EST Weekend of July 23 - 25 So what do you have planned? <BR> <BR> Tonight, I am taking a friend to pick up a portable A/C unit, since it'll take them another 4 weeks to fix hers. And I am meeting friends out tomorrow night. Luckily, I won't drink more than one or two (over about 5 hours), because I'll have to drive home. Ontherwise, sitting in the pool, maybe swimming some laps. <BR> <BR> I am just hoping to survive 100+ degree days. Fri, 23 Jul 2010 15:22:23 EST Weekend July 16-18 My goals for this weekend: <BR> <BR> 1. Track calories... I tend to over do it on the weekend. <BR> <BR> 2. Work out for at least an hour every morning. Next week I would like to start working out in the morning instead of after work. What better time to start than this weekend. <BR> <BR> 3. Make out a routine myself and my dogs. I feel like I havent been giving them enough attention lately and I want them to be on a set schedule. <BR> Fri, 16 Jul 2010 10:07:38 EST Weekend July 16 - 18 It's around midnight but I figured I'd start this off early since I'm up late. <BR> I've really just woke up to the fact that I just have to DO IT. I KNOW all the things I have to do. Now I just have to put those things into motion. <BR> (I just prefer to make my lists this way.) <BR> Friday: <BR> Change doctor's appointment to next Saturday <BR> Refill prescription <BR> Walk <BR> Organize desk/paperwork <BR> Saturday: <BR> Visit a friend <BR> Read <BR> Financial meeting <BR> Walk/exercise <... Fri, 16 Jul 2010 00:40:49 EST Weekend of July 9 - 11 Hello Everyone! <BR> <BR> The weekend is here and I would like to know, what are you planning that will continue your goals over the weekend? <BR> <BR> How do you plan to get in exercise? <BR> How will you beat away negative thougths? <BR> What will you do when a craving or temptation hits you? <BR> <BR> Good luck this weekend! Fri, 9 Jul 2010 15:03:10 EST new to the team, new to challenges Well this is my first challenge and definitely one that fits me well! I struggle with the weekends, they have always been my weakness. I am home with my husband, or we are out running errands, we it is when we get time out with our friends...MEANING a lot of eating out and poor snack choices! This past weekend is what did it in for me! I AM THROWING IN THE WEEKEND TOWEL! NO MORE BAD WEEKENDS. <BR> I even started thinking that my cheat meal should be during the week instead of the weekends so... Tue, 6 Jul 2010 17:56:28 EST Holiday food! Well my family is having a big cookout. Challenges,temptation, and hopefully will power are what i'll be faced with this weekend. Thu, 1 Jul 2010 20:15:49 EST Weekend of July 2 - 4th? 5th?, 2010 Well, it's a holiday weekend here in the USA. I think we have some Canadians around, So they will have started with Canada Day today, I guess. So who's got good plans? <BR> <BR> I am heading off either Saturday or Sunday to my sister's week-long horse show. So lots of physical stuff, but also lots of unhealthy food options. We usually keep breakfast in the room, so I start the day well. But they have this really good ice cream vendor every year--HELP! I try to just make good choices, a... Thu, 1 Jul 2010 14:46:37 EST Hi all! Hey everyone! Im Amy and Im 25 years old. I love the weekends but it is my toughest time (diet-wise.) I was pretty stoked when I stumbled across this team. I tend to struggle on the weekends so hopefully this will help me stay focused! <BR> <BR> Mon, 28 Jun 2010 20:03:10 EST Newbie to the team =) My name is Emiko, 30 y/o (turning 31 in July, but I still feel and act like I'm 10 yrs younger), born and raised in NY. I always tend to sabotage myself on the weekends because my family and I go out to eat a lot. And my family belongs to the "clean your plate" club, so it's hard to resist temptation. Hopefully, this will help me keep myself accountable. Looking forward to getting to know all of you. Sat, 26 Jun 2010 14:43:15 EST Weekend of June 25-27, 2010 Hi everyone! It's Thursday morning, and there are *at least* three new people who stopped in this week to say hello. So I am starting the thread! <BR> <BR> I have an interesting weekend planned. Sort of. Mostly because it is so darn hot around here, exercise has got to change from the usual. <BR> <BR> Friday will start off with helping my sister with barn work. She's filling in, and needs help, so I am going before work, and will probably work for at least an hour, mostly leading horse... Thu, 24 Jun 2010 13:34:54 EST This team is exactly what I need. My name is Coreen. I started sparkpeople a few weeks ago and I have been loving it... there is just one problem, I am terrible on weekends. I don't exercise, I eat anything and everything (as some sort of reward for being good all week), and I drink more beer and wine than I would during the week. Monday - Friday I exercise for an hour a day, I work 12 hour shifts 3 days a week on my feet, and I eat perfectly within, and sometimes under my limits for the week. I need some sort of support ... Wed, 23 Jun 2010 23:43:47 EST Definitely in the right place! Hi, I'm Ardyn, and this is the right place for me! I've been with SparkPeople for a little over a week, and my first weekend was horrible. I didn't workout enough, couldn't get motivated to get out of bed early enough, and ate fast food twice. <BR> <BR> As I think about my weekends, they are definitely my weakest points. My husband is home, and we can go out to eat. We usually spend the weekend in front of our computers, so that just adds to my issues. <BR> <BR> I'm working on cooking all... Wed, 23 Jun 2010 10:16:00 EST Weekend June 11-13, 2010 Hi all! Hope everyone has had a good couple of weeks, since we didn't get a thread started last weekend. <BR> <BR> Last weekend, I decided I was disgusted with myself, and was going to turn over a new leaf. Wake up early during the week and walk or run before work, and then at least 3 afternoon workouts during the week. So far, so good. Weekends, one "real" workout a day--swimming, biking, something like that--in addition to whatever activities I have planned. <BR> <BR> So this is what ... Fri, 11 Jun 2010 10:22:07 EST new! hi, all! <BR> <BR> this sparkteam is exactly what i need! i am so motivated and ready throughout the week to conquer my weight, but as soon as the weekend hits, it's all downhill and monday i am left with weekend guilt. i have a feeling this will help me immensely! i hope everyone is having a good week so far! Tue, 8 Jun 2010 10:19:05 EST Weekend May 28 - 30 (or 31, for Memorial Day) 2010 So what plans does everyone have for the weekend? It's a long weekend here in the USA! <BR> <BR> I am going to visit a college friend, and hope to be as active as possible. No house cleaning or errands on my list! Just hiking, swimming, biking, and hopefully some good, healthy food. Thu, 27 May 2010 14:15:20 EST WEEKEND 05/21 - 05/23 Wow, no posts since March?1? Time to get back on it! <BR> <BR> My to do list: <BR> Pedicure <BR> Burn/shred journals <BR> Clean out my car <BR> Fill Rx <BR> Shape up hair <BR> Visit Jay <BR> Grocery shopping <BR> Organize projects in/on my desk <BR> Work on business letters <BR> Put away clean laundry/organize sock drawer <BR> Wash towels <BR> <BR> I will be headed down the shore to my sister's house so I will get up early with her everyday and walk on the boardwalk. Also, my mom just recei... Fri, 21 May 2010 07:43:56 EST I need this team Weekends are my worst time. You would think because I have more time that it would be easier. I manage to stay on schedule all week with exercising and my calorie intake, but the weekends are terrible. Tue, 4 May 2010 10:13:44 EST Weekend of 3/19 - 3/21 It's been awhile since we've had a weekend thread. I thought I'd jump in here a little early and create one! It's been a nice couple of days in Jersey (after MAJOR floods and rain for days) and looks like we have a few more coming before the cold kicks back in. (Which is just fine with me, I'm not a fan of sweating all the time and humidity so high you can't breathe.) <BR> Tomorrow morning I plan on going to the gym and later that night I'm going to see Joel Osteen preach. On Saturday morning... Thu, 18 Mar 2010 20:01:01 EST Weekend of February 12 - 14, 2010 I have just spent the better part of the last 10 days shoveling snow. Three different storms came through. I need a weekend! <BR> <BR> The upside is that I have burned so many calories shoveling that I might have actually lost some weight, despite the nightly "snow parties" in my neighborhood... <BR> <BR> What does everyone have planned? Thu, 11 Feb 2010 15:59:03 EST Glad I found you guys... Definitly having issues with weekends. I was just browsing for motivation and came across your team. It's just what I'm looking for and need desperately. I do great during the week because I have a schedule and plan every meal. The weekends are a free for all though. So a weekend challenge may just do the trick! Thu, 11 Feb 2010 15:47:34 EST New to team I REALLY need this team. I stay focused all week and have a hard time eating well and exercising all weekend. Sun, 31 Jan 2010 22:19:09 EST Hi- I'm new here and need this team! What a great idea for a team! My weekends are always my downfalls and this is just what I needed! <BR> It's nice to know I'm not alone in this :) <BR> So Hi Everyone- looking forward to getting to know you all better <em>213</em> Fri, 22 Jan 2010 17:21:57 EST Weekend Jan 22 -24 Hi everyone! I thought I would start this off early this weekend because I feel myself slipping into negative habits. Just got over some kind of stomach virus/upset that had me out of commission for two days so I'm a little off track. <BR> Tomorrow I'm going to finally get a library card and have dinner with a girlfriend. Saturday will be clean up and catch up and hopefully some kind of exercise if my stomach is feeling up to that. Sunday will be church and signing up for a financial plannin... Thu, 21 Jan 2010 21:23:58 EST Weekend of Jan 8 - Jan 10 Happy New Year! <BR> <BR> How was everyone's holidays? <BR> Mine were quiet and uneventful. Just the way I like them! <BR> <BR> I've been MIA for awhile but I did some soul searching and I've started over. <BR> <BR> My weekend plans include cleaning the house, finishing my first book of the year, church and either a bootcamp DVD or the gym. I'm having lunch with a friend tomorrow and dinner for my mom's birthday on Sunday. <BR> <BR> What's everyone up to this weekend? Sat, 9 Jan 2010 00:13:12 EST Weekend of December 6 - 8 What?!? No weekend thread since October? How could that happen? <BR> <BR> I know it's early to start the weekend thread, but maybe that's a good thing. The holiday season is starting, so much going on--but I can't forget to think about what I am doing for my health and fitness. <BR> <BR> Not much so far this weekend. Hopefully I'll be going up to the Dansko Shoe outlet on Saturday with my friend. And Sunday morning I am working at Curves. It's not a lot of money, but it ensures I ge... Wed, 2 Dec 2009 08:39:30 EST Weekend of Oct 9 - 11 Hey everyone! <BR> Time is flying this month. (Even though to me this was the slowest week -time wise @ work- in awhile. <BR> I will make up a longer list later but so far this weekend for me involves visiting a friend and apple picking. Talk to you all later! Fri, 9 Oct 2009 08:09:05 EST Weekend of September 25 - 27 Hey everyone. TGIF! <BR> I'm just starting the thread and then I'm going to post again with my weekend list. I have off Monday too. (Love the Jewish holidays at work.) Brief weekend overview: tonight going to try to get as much cleaning done as I can, tomorrow I have a wedding to go to, Sunday and Monday hanging out with my best friend. Not sure where we're gonna go or what we're gonna do, but I'll come up with something. Be back later with my list. <BR> <BR> What does everyone else have pla... Fri, 25 Sep 2009 15:08:01 EST Weekend of September 18 - 20 I know it's just Thursday, but I wanted to start the thread. <BR> <BR> What does everybody have planned for the weekend? <BR> <BR> I have a family dinner Friday night, and I want to get at least once good solid workout in over the weekend. I've been lazy for too long, and hit a plateau after some really good progress earlier this summer. My house also needs a pretty good cleaning, although I am caught up in the "putting things away" category. Thu, 17 Sep 2009 09:36:42 EST September 11 - 13 Hey everyone! <BR> I know it's been awhile since any of us have posted on this group. I figured since summer is over and most people settle back into a routine, I would make this a routine again as well. <BR> I really havent planned a list yet, but I will later on today. Tomorrow I'm going to my mom's house, take a walk on the boardwalk with her and set up for my cousin's bridal shower, which is on Sunday.

Fri, 17 Jul 2009 18:36:54 EST Weekend of July 10 through 13 This weekend there aren't any parties planned. SO I hope to stick to my weekday eating, log in each day, and exercise. Wed, 8 Jul 2009 20:37:59 EST Weekend of July 3rd - 6th I recently read a daily devotional from Joel Osteen about "setting the standard." People have gotten so used to settling for mediocrity. They've become lazy and content to do the minimum to get by. I dont want to live that way. I want to be the person who strives to be the best. I want to set the standard for my life. I want to get up early each day, live with a purpose and complete the goals I have made for myself. <BR> And so...this weekend's list: <BR> -Finish Married Lovers (April book) <... Fri, 3 Jul 2009 15:40:45 EST Hello I am glad to have found this group. My husband and I on weekends have run out of steam, we find ourselves being couch potato's, watching some sporting event and playing games on our laptops. We need challenging! I live in Southern california in the mountains and close to the coast. We plan to start walking on the beach this saturday. Oh by the way my name is Madge.

I decided to start this thread early...after two weeks of almost non stop rain and I am feeling the "enough already" mood coming on! <BR> Other than a UFC pay per view tomorrow night I dont have any definite plans.

I have searched for a ...

I kinda caught it at an in between time. I walked almost everyday this week and didnt go to Dairy Queen once! I got a flat tire on the NJ Turnpike this morning so I was late for work.

Boring. I am so frustrated and want to do SOMETHING! ANYTHING! <BR> <BR> The good news is in regards to my weight.

I need to watch my food intake, because the doctor put me on a steriod for a rash, and now I feel like I want to eat everything in sight. If I can keep that to healthy things, it won't be a problem. But chocolate and candy and breads keep calling. <BR> <BR> Also, with the "lost weekend" last weekend, I have so much to do around my house.

Sun, 10 Feb 2008 20:39:22 EST weekend warriors Feb. 8th - 10th Hi Weekend Warriors: <BR> <BR> I am off for a run this morning up my snowy road. We have so much snow, it is obscene! And we are supposed to get some more storm dumped on us on Sunday! I can't wait for Florida. Where are you, Deb? Snowed under? <BR> <BR> I am staying in the City tonight when I pick up my Emma. She is getting a beauty salon treatment this evening and having a friend over for the weekend. We are going to travel up to the country Saturday and maybe live through the Sunday sto... Fri, 8 Feb 2008 06:43:55 EST Weekend Warriors Feb. 1st to Feb. 3rd Hi Weekend Warriors <BR> <BR> I have had a great week. Day 18 binge-free and Day 8 clean eating (1700 - 1750 range)! My province was ice-stormed all week and they almost called in the troops because of so many homes having no power. I was lucky enough to escape outages in the city, although my office was out for a few days. <BR> <BR> I managed to run outside everyday although it was icy. I am going to run outside today for 40 minutes. I have been doing band exercises every 2nd day at home... Fri, 1 Feb 2008 07:52:02 EST Weekend warriors Jan. 24th to Jan 26th Good day, weekend warriors! <BR> I am taking off to the city tonight after work so my weekend is essentially beginning today. I have a professional meeting in the city tomorrow. Have run every day up the counry road -- even in the bitter cold for 20 minutes, Didi! (How did the Sunday run go, by the way?) <BR> <BR> Chris? I have had 7 days of clean-eating (under 1700 calories, which is good for me!) I am going for the weightloss of 40 pounds. That would complete the circle I began 4 years ag... Thu, 24 Jan 2008 07:44:58 EST Weekend warriors challenge Jan. 18 - Jan 20th Good morning, weekend warriors! <BR> I am both inspired and in awe and envy of the recent spark stars who have been profiled on Women's World and People's magazines. I can't help but compare and see that I have been stalled for a few years on my weightloss journey. It is definitely about me and the carbs. I set out each day well-meaning and with food plan in hand, and inevitably give myself permission to eat extra, or more, or something not even on my plan. I am self-sabotaging. So, this week... Fri, 18 Jan 2008 08:05:16 EST Weekend Warriors Jan. 10 - 12th Good morning, weekend warriors! <BR> I am heading up to the country this afternoon for appts and staying there til Sunday. May come to the girl's ringette tournament in the city on Sunday with my daughter, Emma. I am starting my new experiment of being in the city one week on, one week off this Monday. I am planning on having office hours in the City bi-weekly. I will see if it works. It is great having both the city and country experience. My food plan is back to normal -- for me! I am eatin...

I am out of the food fog and have chucked as much of the holiday sugar-fare as I could. I ran for 30 minutes yesterday and intend to run for 30 minutes today before heading to the City for a few days. I am glad Christmas is behind me because I ate too damn much. The scales indicate that I have gained weight. I am back in the saddle and on food plan. Have a great weekend. I intend to. Going to a dance tomorrow evening with my boyfriend. Staying o...

I am preparing for a Christmas party on Saturday night. Trying to get last minute shopping done, and close down the office til the New Year. Lots of chocolate and goodies around. So far, i have not indulged. If I stay centered and keep doing my daily run, I will be fine. Sunday, I may have to shop some more, or I might be wiped from the party. I will test the waters when it comes. I am ... Thu, 20 Dec 2007 08:40:55 EST Weekend Warriors - Dec. 14 - 16th Good day, folks. Ok, I am heading into the weekend in a good state of mind. We are doing tree selection and decorating tomorrow. I am baking and decorating shortbread cookies with my Emma tomorrow as well. Also planning food for my annual Christmas party on the 22nd, to which you are all invited, of course! I have to be REAL careful at this time of year. I get too anxious and excited and that is my portal to mindless eating. So far, so good, on the 5 mini meals/day. I had my vericose veins re... Fri, 14 Dec 2007 07:18:48 EST Weekend Warriors Nov. 30 - Dec. 2 Hi everyone! I hope you're all ready to start your weekend off right. I plan to babysit 2 kids tomorrow night and make it to the town Christmas Tree Lighting. Saturday morning is the Christmas Parade and then Saturday evening is my husband's company Christmas Party at the Science Center. Whew. Somewhere in there I PROMISE to make it to the gym at least once, preferably twice. I've tried 2 new classes in the past week and am super excited to go back. Cardio Boxing ROCKS! <BR> <BR> Good... Thu, 29 Nov 2007 22:38:49 EST Weekend Warriors challenge Nov. 22, 23th - 25th I know it's kind of early. Well, I know we have some Canadians on the team, and other non-Americans, but I still have to get through Thangsgiving! The up side is that I still can't eat everything--the stitches are limiting me, unfortunately. So I just want to work on my water consumption and get some exercise in. And some shopping, LOL! Wed, 21 Nov 2007 14:07:13 EST Weekend Warriors challenge Nov. 16th - 18th Good morning, folks. <BR> I am lining up my weekend. It is a working weekend for me, which is a rarity, but I have been snowed under with work and work-related stressors so I know what I have to do. A 2-day home-based work marathon. I will come up for air and food and exercise; may even get out to the gym Saturday afternoon for weights. I intend to run on both days, as I have been doing daily this week, whether I am in the city or at my country home. My boyfriend (yes, I have a boyfriend now!... Fri, 16 Nov 2007 09:25:07 EST Weekend Warrior Challenge Nov. 9 - 11th Good morning, folks. <BR> I have come out of my peri-menopausal frump, it seems. I am up 9 pounds from this time last year! I can grieve it, or I can change it. I am running this morning, and hitting the health club for weight training. Can't keep a good woman down for long! I am not going to let this tiger lick me! Off to the city this afternoon to see the swearing in of a new woman judge. Supper with my daughter, and seeing my boyfriend after. I am going to spend the weekend in the country ...

I'm Amanda and I'm semi-new to SparkPeople. I have 170 lbs. to lose and I am up for the challenge. I love the treadmill and getting in a great workout.

Friday I am retrieving my Emma and we are having a mother-daughter evening -- probably getting home around 9 p.m. and watching a bit of TV together. Saturday is house and yard work after a run, and then supper with my boyfriend (yes! boyfriend!) and Emma. Sunday, the three of us are going biking with mountain bikes. Hope my butt can take it. We cycled last weekend only for 20 minutes of so and I was sore! Plans for...

This weekend I am picking up Emma and we are planning on taking in a movie on Saturday evening. I have yard work and wood to pile Saturday during the day, after my run, of course. Sunday, we are going to a scarecrow contest, and then I am being introduced to a healthspa in the... Fri, 28 Sep 2007 08:06:40 EST Weekend Warriors Sept. 21st to Sept. 23rd Good morning, Weekend Warriors <BR> I am setting up my weekend for success. Friday evening I am having my hair done and picking up Emma. I have housework and cooking to do because my dear friend from Montreal is coming overnight with her daughter on Saturday. She is on a health kick so we are eating healthy meals. I have loads of yardwork to do on Saturday afternoon. Will get in my run, and possibly mow the lawn. Sunday, I will take a nice long walk with my friend.

Thu, 30 Aug 2007 17:15:45 EST Weekend August 24th to August 26th Good morning, Weekend Warriors <BR> This weekend will offer up challenges for me because family are visiting from Ontario, along with my mother. I have the habitual urge to parade out with platters of sugary desserts and potato chips. The post article on party alternatives was helpful this week. Instead of chips, cut up veggies with low fat dips, etc. My family are conscientious about what they eat so why should I try to show love with food? I did a batch of the black bean brownies (SP recipe... Thu, 23 Aug 2007 07:03:22 EST August 17-19 Weekend! I don't know if I should have started this, but I have some huge challenges this weekend, so I am! LOL <BR> <BR> So the hubby is going out of town for this weekend - the ENTIRE weekend. It will be my first time alone in our new home, and I have a little anxiety related with being alone, especially at night. Add to that the fact that the hubby and I are practically attached at the hip and I'm not looking forward to being away from him for several days. <BR> <BR> When I'm alone, I tend to e... Mon, 13 Aug 2007 16:13:43 EST Weekend Warriors 10th-12th August Hi, just starting this weekends thread!!! <BR> <BR> Well this weekend I'm heading to our camper as usual on Friday.

I also have a dance on Saturday evening. Lots of alcohol available. I'm hoping to be able to have a few drinks and stay out of the junk food. Keeping my fingers crossed. <BR> <BR> Sunday, I plan on sleeping in...heh... Wed, 8 Aug 2007 14:00:16 EST Afternoon! I'm Amber and I have a *LOT* of trouble on the weekends! Well, no longer! I'm committed to turning my life around and dropping me! LOL <BR> <BR> I just need a little support on the weekends... <BR> <BR> Good luck to everyone! I truly hope you acheive your goals! Wed, 8 Aug 2007 13:33:08 EST Weekend Warriors - Aug. 10 - 12 Good morning, folks. <BR> My weekend is starting to shape up, so I thought I would start this thread today! I am still in the midst of unfinished painting jobs, unfinished bedroom culling, and unfinished general housework, but my step-daughter is coming on Friday evening. I have a coffee date with a "younger man" on Friday evening before I pick my step daughter up. Saturday, I am taking my mother to the Dutch Mason Blues Festival in Truro, Nova Scotia. My mother, who is almost 80, does weigh... Wed, 8 Aug 2007 07:09:39 EST New to the team Hi all! I'm not new to Spark People but this is the first time I'm ready to get serious about it. <BR> <BR> This group seems like exactly what I've been looking for. Monday - Friday I don't think that I'll have a problem eating within my calorie range and exercising but weekends are always hectic and unexpected events always come up. <BR> <BR> I'm hoping to get tips on how to stay on track when I'm out with friends or just bored around the house. <BR> <BR> Looking forward to chatting wi... Tue, 7 Aug 2007 14:55:08 EST Hello From NYC Just wanted to say hello. <BR> <BR> My worst planning comes on the weekend. I would like to start planning my meals better for the week and doing at least some form of Group exercise on the weekend. Wed, 1 Aug 2007 09:23:19 EST August 3-5 Not much happening this weekend on this end other than working on the bathroom. We are ready to lay the floor-YAY!!! We will be going to Wisconsin State Fair with the neighbors on Saturday, but that is about it....mmmmmm cream puff! Sunday maybe a cookout since we only have a month left of summer (we grill out in snowstorms too!). Everyone have a good weekend!!! Wed, 1 Aug 2007 09:04:43 EST Weekend Warriors July 27 - 29 Good morning, weekend warriors. <BR> I had the staples removed from my legs, which are very bruised from the surgery, and I am at the tailend of a flaming cold/cough, which seemed to come and go in 4 days! I stayed in plan, and did daily walking everyday except one. I am off to Toronto for 4 days early tomorrow morning. A dirty weekend!

Depending on the weather, we may do some canoeing. I would like to swim in the ocean at least once this year, despite the god-awful weather! I will do my regular run on Saturday and weights at the club -- maybe have to resort to a pool swim. Walk on Sunday. Vascular surgery on Monday (removal of vericose veins from legs) Maybe I can fi... Thu, 12 Jul 2007 05:45:51 EST Weekend July 5 - 7th Hi People! <BR> I created the thread for this weekend. Nothing spectacular happening except I may take in a play on Sat night with my Emma. There is a quaint little village near here (Victoria by the Sea) where they put on wonderful plays in an old style theatre. It is quite wonderful. I will stay away from the homemade chocolate shop, and hit the second-hand bookstore, instead. Some yardwork to do. Maybe a campfire. I will do my hour run tomorrow and weights. A good walk on the beach Sunday,... Fri, 6 Jul 2007 06:30:06 EST Weekend Warriors June 29th- July1st Hi everyone!!! <BR> Big weekend in Canada!!!

I've been a member of Spark People for a couple of months and have found it to be very inspiring and helpful in my fitness goals. However, lately I've found that I can do really well during the week with my eating but totally fall off the wagon on the weekends. With BBQ's, parties, after church eating out, etc., I'm finding that I need a little more weekend accountability ... Tue, 26 Jun 2007 21:00:56 EST June 22 - 24 Good morning, fellow warriors! <BR> I am starting the thread today, given that I am looking ahead to the weekend. I will probably be doing more yardwork on the weekend, possibly getting my garden tilled and planting some zucchini and tomatoes and peppers. (My farmer neighbor says my garden will grow as well as someone's planted a month ago! Personally, I think he's just trying to make me feel better about being behind schedule!) I am feeling a bit nuts the last few days about my exercise and ... Thu, 21 Jun 2007 07:26:24 EST Weekend Warriors June 15 - 17 Hi, just starting this weekends thread. <BR> It's Thursday already!!!! <BR> <BR> I'm going to be doing the same thing this weekend as I did last weekend....going to the summer trailer with the kids and hubby. The only difference is that now I'm not as paniced as I was at the start of the season. <BR> It always helps to have plan of action in place!!! <BR> <BR> Friday- go for my usual 5KM run at some point, and some ST <BR> <BR> Saturday - big walk with my dog, and play with the kids. <BR>... Thu, 14 Jun 2007 08:29:47 EST Weekend Warriors - June 9-10 Just starting a new thread for this weekend. <BR> <BR> I'm thinking about going to the movies Friday night after I drop the boys off at my mom's house. However, I usually drop the boys off around 4:30 p.m. and the movie doesn't start until 8 p.m. Not really enough time to go home, come back, etc. (she lives in the next town, it's a bit of a drive). <BR> <BR> So, if I go to the movies, what will I do to fill up the time? If I'm ambitious, I think I'll take a hike on my mom's property ...

It involves lots of food so therefore all the activity I could throw in there, would be much needed!!! <BR> <BR> I do plan on going for a very long run on early Sunday morning. Hopefully I'll be able to make healthy food choices for most of the weekend....notice I did'n... Thu, 31 May 2007 12:44:04 EST May 26th-28th - Memorial Weekend! Hey everyone!

Happy Wednesday! I figured I'd get the weekend thread started. I have absolutely no plans for this coming weekend. It feels like it's been a long time since that happened! I plan to go to kickboxing Saturday. I just truly love and hate that class. ;-) Would love to get some golf in at some point over the weekend too. Maybe hubby will have a little time but not sure b/c he's so busy at the golf course this time of year! <BR> <BR> I haven't been doing that great on the food th...

I am still on a good wave of momentum and need to keep it going. <BR> <BR> I'm already thinking about the weekend and how I can stay in check and on track. I don't think it will be too much of a challenge on Friday or Saturday. Business as usual so to speak and no real temptation areas that I know of. Sunday will be a challenge. Being Mother's Day and all, it usually involves my family taking me to may favo... Wed, 9 May 2007 09:51:33 EST May 5-6 OK weekend warriors... I'm on a good 4 day role here and leading the charge for a very WARRIOR weekend. I keep remindingmyself how good it will feel to have a solid week put behind me! I'm sure not liking the scale right now, so time to buckle down and be strong! <BR> <BR> This weekend doesn't hold any unusal events or challenges for me (yet), but typically we'll eat out once or twice and I need to get back to making good choices and not letting the "oh its the weekend" mentality get me. ...

Friday I'll head for my folks after work. Mom said she'd have soup for dinner so I'll have that to eat and it should be pretty lo-cal. Saturday is going to be a bigger test. I'm heading to my friends house to see her and their little boy. I'm going there at 8am and she said we could have breakfast. I think we're just going to grab someth... Wed, 25 Apr 2007 16:32:25 EST April 21st - 22nd Happy Wednesday! I figured I'd start a new thread for the weekend. Last night I was such a bad girl on eating! I felt miserable last night when I went to bed. I should remember that tonight if I get the urge to go in the bad direction! <BR> <BR> This weekend I"ll be picking up hubby at the airport Friday night. So nothing major there.

Wed, 18 Apr 2007 13:07:20 EST April 14th-15th I am now feeling better, and thought I would start a new thread to help myself jumpstart my program after being off for a few days. I don't really have any big plans this weekend, except maybe going shopping for a new outfit for the countless weddings we are invited to this year. I found a dress at Penny's (I have to shop in the tall catalog) that is almost identical to the dress Melinda Doolittle was wearing on American Idol last night (without the big price tag! LOL) which I really liked.... Wed, 11 Apr 2007 10:18:10 EST April 7th-8th Easter!! Well, it's late in the day on Wednesday and this weekend's thread has not been started so I figured I'd get it going! My folks are coming up on Saturday. They're actually flying out about 6:30 am on Sunday for Palm Springs. When they booked the flight months back they didn't even think that it could be Easter. Friday no plans as of now. I have a feeling I'll be spending the evening cleaning the house b/c it desperately needs it and I don't see myself having time tomorrow night or having ... Wed, 4 Apr 2007 21:00:40 EST March 31-April 1st It's Wednesday so I decided I'd start the new weekend thread. It's crazy b/c I've felt like this week is dragging but now I feel like the weekend is so close! <BR> <BR> I've been such a bad girl with snacking the last 2 nights. I don't know what my problem has been. Last night I even sat down on the couch eating chips and told my hubby "I know I shouldn't be eating this but I don't care, I do care, but I don't. I know I'll hate myself tomorrow but for now I don't care!" Okay, why am I... Wed, 28 Mar 2007 11:02:50 EST March 23-25 I am soooo excited that I had to get this post started!!

Then we are headed to the Gulf islands with our tandem sea kayak for a week! <BR> <BR> I am sure there will be rain...but maybe we will get lucky and see some whales migrating?

Good morning, folks <BR> I have been doing some soul-searching given that I had the time yesterday to wander around a shopping mall after court waiting around til 6 p.m. to get into my hair salon to have my hair done. I decided to indulge in myself yesterday in ways unassociated with food. Oh, I ate, too. Don't get me wrong! But it was not as indulgent as I could have been. Sometimes, I wonder if sanity will ever return. Will there ever be a time when I feel that all is as it should be. That ... Wed, 14 Mar 2007 08:10:45 EST March 10-11 Hello, you fabulous Weekend Warriors! Daylight savings time this weekend, so we lose an hour. <em>39</em> <BR> <BR> Saturday: I think my older son, Spenser, starts T-ball this weekend. If so, I think I'll try to walk around the field while he's doing his thing. I'll also try to get out and take a walk by myself before my hubby goes to work. <BR> <BR> Sunday: I'm hoping that my friend, Sonya, wants to take a hike with me on Sunday. If not, I may sneak out by myself. It'll be a big... Wed, 7 Mar 2007 11:48:13 EST introductions Hi Folks <BR> I came across this group by accident! I am following my gut instincts and posting. I have been on a weight loss journey for 4 years. I started at 335 pounds, and am now at 179. I have been hovering around the 175-179 mark for over a year. I run 6 days a week for an hour each time, I do 1.5 hours of weight training and yogo-floor exercises 3 times a week. I feel that I have the exercise down-pat. I thrive on routine. And I record my food intake daily. My downfall has always be... Mon, 5 Mar 2007 05:57:33 EST March 3-4 Hey Warriors! Can you believe March is upon us??? It is the last home KSU basketball game on Saturday so we will be making one of our last trips to Manhattan for awhile. With football tickets and basketball tickets I've been going to Manhattan consistently since about the 1st of September. I don't know what I'll do with myself! <BR> <BR> For Saturday our plan is to get to manhattan early, around 11 and hang out at one of our fave bars to watch an early bball game and eat lunch there. T... Wed, 28 Feb 2007 14:13:29 EST weekend comimg up.

Thu, 22 Feb 2007 05:56:17 EST February 24-25 mmmm...this weekend I am going all out redneck!! <em>244</em> <BR> <BR> We are traveling to the Swamp Cabbage festival in LaBelle Florida (about 2 hrs away) <BR> <BR> They have hay rides, rodeo, swamp cabbage fritter contest and armadillo races!!! Should be fun! <BR> <BR> So...I will definitely be sampling the fare...which means I have to plan really well, and plan a healthy Sunday dinner to complement it. <BR> <BR> Like I said on last weekend's thread, no exercise planned because we wi... Wed, 21 Feb 2007 11:05:23 EST February 17-18 Happy Valentine's Day!! <em>26</em> <BR> <BR> This weekend may end up being just a sabattical of repentence for the wonderful chocolates we have today!!! <BR> <BR> My new husband doesn't like chocolate so I may get off easy...but apparently he does have "plans" for us I am conserving calories and teaching a class at lunch today. <BR> <BR> I have had some pounds creep back on, and I don't want to lose everything I worked for so I have reset all my goals starting today...let's ... Wed, 14 Feb 2007 10:47:49 EST Feb 10-11 Well, it's Wednesday so I figured I'd start the new weekend thread. I'm bouncing off the walls today b/c our team plays are in-state rival in bball tonight. We were lucky enough to be given tickets on the 7th row!!! I just hope I can stand being surrounded by KU fans. I can not focus at work at all today b/c I'm ready for the game! <BR> <BR> I've done a very good job of getting back on track after splurging a little for Super Bowl. I was very happy that at weigh-in I hadn't gained any. ... Wed, 7 Feb 2007 09:49:44 EST February 3-4 It's Wednesday again. And this weekend will include Superbowl parties... Wed, 31 Jan 2007 15:30:24 EST New Member Intro I wasn't sure whether I was supposed to start a new link or just introduce myself on the continuing link. I suppose in the end, it doesn't matter -- just as long as I am here. <BR> <BR> Your title appealed to me. I am always on a diet during the week and never have any problems. I am a teacher and a single Mom and since teachers don't earn enough, I have a second job. I am also taking a class in night school (whew!), so I never think of eating during the week. But when the weekend comes... Sat, 27 Jan 2007 20:13:44 EST January 27-28 Alright Warriors - Almost Thursday and I'm getting antsy about the weekend! I want to have another warrior weekend... however, this one will be a challenge for sure. We are going to visit family out of town... which means other people are cooking for us and trying to be hospitable (ie too much food!). So, I'll really have to work hard to control portions and moderate. My family does not do moderation very well! I plan to get some extra exercise in on Thur. and Fri. as I don't think I'll ... Wed, 24 Jan 2007 21:31:00 EST January 20-21 Since it's Wednesday I thought I'd go ahead and start the weekend's thread. I guess I'm just anxious for the weekend! We're planning to go see my niece this weekend since the weather kept us from doing that this past weekend! <BR> <BR> We're planning to drive to my folks Saturday evening after my hubby gets off work. We'll probably eat dinner before we head out. Then Sunday mom & I are either going to cook lunch to take over or we're going to pick up lunch. She knows hubby & I are watch... Wed, 17 Jan 2007 12:36:45 EST January 13-14 OK, it is officially Wednesday and so it is "safe" to start thinking about the weekend :) <BR> <BR> I am pretty excited about this weekend due to having a good one last weekend and having a strong week so far... however, it is going to be a major weekend of temptations for me. Have a family gathering (lots of food) and on Sun. am helping host a baby shower (more food) and it will be a challenge to get through w/out straying too far from my range. Will have no issue w/ the exercising as I'l... Wed, 10 Jan 2007 10:41:53 EST Jan 6-7 It's Wednesday so I thought I'd start the new thread! I'm on day 3 of my healthy living! I did so bad for about 2 weeks and it caught me and bit me in the butt and chose to stay there too! With the new year I'm really dedicating myself to sticking with this! My husband is trying to lose so that's helping me as well! I even got him set up on sparkpeople and he logged everything yesterday and I think he's kind of enjoying it! <BR> <BR> No big plans for the weekend. The Chiefs managed t... Wed, 3 Jan 2007 09:11:55 EST Dec 30-31 Hey! I'm actually sitting in a hotel in Houston waiting for the hubby to finish showering. We're down here for the Texas bowl which KSU is playing in. We flew in yesterday. I noticed we didn't have a thread started yet for the weekend so I thought I'd start one! <BR> <BR> We fly back home tomorrow afternoon. The plan is for me to go back to my folks on Saturday and head to Christmas on my dad's side with the cousins and aunts and uncles. Not sure if I'll still do that b/c weather is lo... Thu, 28 Dec 2006 11:07:29 EST Dec 23-25 I know this is way early, but look at what weekend it is! I think we need this much advance notice to really prepare for it! I stretched it out a day because most of us have Monday off. However, I'm posting my plans from Wednesday on because I'm taking vacation days. So here goes for me. <BR> <BR> Wednesday: I'll take a good hill interval walk (up and down the 20% incline hill) for about 40 minutes. Probably a walk with the kids too. That's inventory day - what stocking stuffers do I ... Mon, 18 Dec 2006 17:01:27 EST Dec 16-17 Since it's Wednesday I thought I'd go ahead and start a new weekend thread. This week for me feels like it's dragging but maybe I'm just anxious for the weekend. <BR> <BR> We're going to my brother and sis-in-law's on Saturday. I have a step-nephew who will be at Christmas with his dad this year so we're celebrating Christmas with them this weekend. Sadly my hubby won't get off work til 5 and they live close to 3 hours away so we wont get there til close to 8. But it's better than nothin... Wed, 13 Dec 2006 10:45:20 EST Dec 9-10 Hi, all, new weekend, new thread. <BR> <BR> Here's my rundown. <BR> <BR> Friday night, Christmas banquet at church - couples only. I ordered beef. I know there's going to be hot spots - bread, dessert, etc. I will eat healthfully that day, then eat in moderation that evening. I'll have some of everything, but very small portions of indulgent foods. <BR> <BR> Saturday. Instead of doing a weekend of holiday baking, I have decided to do chocolate covered (all types) pretzels. Very ... Tue, 5 Dec 2006 15:01:15 EST 500 + 3000 = Chris' Weekend Goals Hi Folks! <BR> <BR> Not sure how this works ... but here are my weekend goals ... <BR> <BR> BURN 500 calories <BR> Calories LESS THAN 3000 <BR> <BR> It's my first weekend with this program and weekends are when I binge. <BR> <BR> I need your support ... really. If, er, when I meet my goals this weekend, I should lose 7+ lbs in the upcoming week. Sorry to say, but when I stick to a program the weight initially melts away quickly. <em>9</em> <BR> <BR> Let me know how I can help you as we... Fri, 1 Dec 2006 23:06:06 EST Dec 2-3 How on earth did it get to be December already? <BR> <BR> Should be a busy weekend. Birthday party for our 6-year old on Saturday. It's a Pokemon theme. So Friday night I'm making a Pikachu cake - I'm not sure how, but I know I'll pull it off! <BR> <BR> Church on Sunday then another birthday party Sunday afternoon. <BR> <BR> In terms of exercise, I think I'll take a really good walk by myself on Saturday then another family walk. Sunday? Same thing. <BR> <BR> No big challenge... Wed, 29 Nov 2006 12:01:35 EST Thanksgiving weekend - Nov 23-26 Apologies to those not in the states, but for many of us, it's a 4-day weekend, so thus the new thread. I'll pop in a bit later with my plans, but I hope everyone's gearing up for Thanksgiving. <BR> <BR> Whatever happens, I hope everyone remembers that the only way Thanksgiving can really blow your diet is if you don't get back on plan Friday morning. <BR> <BR> What can you do before the big meal? Eat lightly but well that day. Ask family members if they want to go for a walk mid-day -... Tue, 21 Nov 2006 11:44:23 EST Hello Hello Hey everyone, Im new to this group... So glad I found it though! This has been my biggest struggle...........especially this past weekend... Its hard to eat just one donut, know what I mean? lol But yeah I am always wanted to get off track on the weekends, so I hope I can get some support and Ideas here. THanks for having me! Tue, 21 Nov 2006 10:08:03 EST Nov 18 - 19 OK Warriors, are we ready? I decided to start a thread for this weekend since it is already Friday. Time has flown this week and I've had 6 really good days pressuming today goes well. Tomorrow will be a challenge for me w/ the girls' 2 bday parties and temptations of cake, ice cream, and a few treats. I know I'm going to have some, so I will be looking to keep it all in very small quantity and get my workouts done. <BR> Started off today w/ a good run of almost 4 miles and almost 600 c... Fri, 17 Nov 2006 09:38:00 EST Veterans Day Weekend - Nov 10-12 Hey, everyone, starting a new thread. This is a three-day weekend for some of us (me included), not so much for others. <em>39</em> Wed, 8 Nov 2006 15:16:44 EST Weekend November 4-5 Hi, all! I am revved up to make this upcoming weekend a resounding success! <BR> <BR> I don't have weekend plans in place yet. I know I have church Sunday morning because it's my week to do nursery and Sunday School. <BR> <BR> What I do know is that I plan to take my son and perhaps hubby and other son to the elementary school this weekend and play some basketball. (Goofy, running around, not really keeping score, basketball.) Should burn some good calories as well as being great fa... Tue, 31 Oct 2006 12:20:35 EST Halloween weekend 10/28-10/20 Hi Warriors - <BR> I figured Wednesday is a perfect time to start thinking about the coming weekend and plan our attacks for being WARRIORS. This weekend is sure to be more challenging than others with extra candy, parties, etc. <BR> <BR> My strategies so far are that I still have not bought any Halloween candy yet... and when I go buy the treats, I'll be doing not only candy, but things like little packs of gold fish crackers & Peanut butter crackers, and some small toys/novelties. Also, ... Wed, 25 Oct 2006 11:33:11 EST Weekend 10/21-10/22 I don't mean to keep stealing NMCELRATH'S thunder with this... sorry! Just trying to help. <BR> <BR> Wed, 18 Oct 2006 09:22:45 EST New here Hi - I am brand new to this team and really like the idea. I need some accountablity on the weekends. Thanks for having a great challenge! Count me in! Thu, 12 Oct 2006 07:03:33 EST Weekend 10/14-10/15 I never know if this is okay to create on Wednesday, but I am already thinking about this coming weekend bc I am going out of town (to Nashvegas baby, yeah! sooooo excited about this) so I wanted to go ahead and set this up if anyone else was ready yet as well. Wed, 11 Oct 2006 14:07:18 EST Weekend 10/7-10/8 I went ahead and started today's since it's Wednesday and we usually have one posted around then. <BR> <BR> My weekend is shaping up to look like a haunted house on Friday the football game on Saturday and a birthday dinner on Sunday. <BR> <BR> Plus I have runs for Friday and Saturday planned and an hour walk for Sunday planned. Wed, 4 Oct 2006 10:54:45 EST Weekend 9/30-10/1 Hi, everyone! Just starting a thread for the upcoming weekend. <BR> <BR> This is a different weekend for me. <BR> <BR> Saturday I'll be cleaning house, packing, then going with the family to my sister's house (1-1/2 hours away) and spending the night there. No big challenges. My sister may cook dinner, but she'll cook something healthy. <BR> <BR> Sunday we'll be driving to Disneyland (about 12 hours with breaks, meals, etc.). I think it'll be fine. When we stop for breaks, I'll p...

Sun, 24 Sep 2006 02:12:56 EST Weekend 9/23-9/24 I decided I'd go ahead and start this weekends thread. This one will be a test. On Saturday we have a home football game against Louisville which will be tough! That's at 11 am and then I have a bachelorette party that night back in KC. I don't drink much at all but I'm planning on having some fun Saturday night! My goal is to just keep my eating in check all day Saturday and then allow myself to enjoy some drinks Saturday night.

Obstacles? <BR> <BR> For once, I don't have a bunch of plans - hurrah! I hope that I'll be walking with my fitness partner Saturday and Sunday, I'll find out tonight when I walk with her (sometimes she goes out of town). I'll do other exercises, of course (just finished a 45-minute Turbo Jam session, fun but I feel uncoordinated!). <BR> <BR> OK, since I do...

By shopping yard sales, I've sold tons on eBay and saved enough money to go on several tropical vacations. This weekend is the big, county-wide yard sale, so I'm primed. I'm skipping my usual Friday a.m. hike to do yard sales. I'll also be doing them Saturday morning. <BR> <BR> However, Friday evening, I will walk at least 1 h... Thu, 31 Aug 2006 01:22:41 EST Friday and Learning Here is another weekend and I am already over on my calories eating out and having a few drinks. Does anyone have a solution with calorie count on drinks? <BR> How is everyone else doing?
