If weekends are hard for you because you're around the house more, make a list of projects or things you'd like to get done. Rather than raiding the kitchen, you'll feel better about yourself AND be productive at the same time crossing off your list!

I wear my pedometer daily and make my best effort to get in my 10000 steps. Weekends are especially difficult, but now I have a little trick. I do my laundry on weekends, as I fold or hang clothes I immediately put mine away and walk my son's to his room (they stay on his bed until he puts them away) and lay hubby's on his side of the bed, but walking to do all that means the steps really add up. Maybe not the most time efficient but keeps me active :)
Fridays are a great day knowing that the weekend is just about here. Try to plan ahead and try to get some exercise into your weekend. You have more control over your exercise during the weekend than food sometimes.
