Weekend weakness

Sunday, February 03, 2013

Thursday and Friday were good days. Friday I didn't eat great, but I got in some good exercise. Friday night I told myself that Friday would count as my easy day, but then Saturday brought the weekend and I caved into my weekend weakness. I ate way more than I should have both on Saturday and today, on Sunday. It is that time of the month as well and this month was rougher than some, leaving me craving something good to eat. I just wanted to hang out this weekend and do nothing. Of course, having two little kids means no time for that. They are always up to something. Nothing is not an option.

To make matters worse, my mom got my matron of honor dress in for my sister's wedding and wants to bring it up for me to try on. I know it isn't going to fit right now. We ordered online and I refused to pay extra for the size that the size chart said I should get. It isn't fair. It is unpleasant enough being overweight and then the companies want to charge more for bigger sizes. Yeah, I guess bigger sizes use more fabric, but it can't be that big of a difference in terms of fabric amount from an 18 to a 16. I ordered the 16. I refused to order the 18. I need to get healthy anyways. It's not like I am just trying to fit into a dress. Maybe this will just give me something I can physically see hanging in my closet.

My goal of 30 by 30 is still possible, but I am going to have to figure out a better way to handle weekends. If I don't I am going to continue undoing the progress that I do make by having bad weekends. Unacceptable. I don't know how to get past these bad weekends but I have to find a way. Think. Think. Think.

    Weekends can be rough. I've gotten through some by taking it one challenge at a time...eat a good healthy breakfast within an hour of getting up, plan for healthy snacks during the day, drink lots of water, and if I'm going out anywhere to eat, I check the menu on-line ahead of time to try to figure out healthy choices. Does it always work? Nope. But I'm doing a whole lot better on weekends now than before I started SP and hope you do too. Best of luck on your fitness journey!
