Whew...weekends over

Sunday, June 14, 2009

Weekends are especially diffiult staying on track. Everyone going in different directions, get-togethers, messed up meal times, etc. This weekend was no different. Baseball games, team party, shopping with teenage daughters., getting kids ready for camp, etc. For the most part I made good food choices and did get out and exercise a bit. I am glad that it is all but over and I can get back into a bit of a routine. Cravings for sweets were more intense than usual but I did a decent job of choosing fruit, cocoa roast nuts and low-cal ice cream bars (what would I do without them?) when my thoughts turned to chocolate. I am learning to enjoy the process and strive to keep things in balance---perfectionism can, and does, sabotage my efforts when I let it. Understanding that about myself is the biggest step.

    Identifying that weekends are your downfall are the first step in correcting that. Try to set a challenge for yourself every weekend so you work on being a little bit extra strict to stay on track. If sweets are your downfall, tell yourself Friday morning that this weekend you will not give in to sugary temptations. It will serve as an extra reminder all weekend that you are being extra vigilant.
