Back on the wagon

Monday, February 04, 2013

So for me weekends are the killer. I have no routine. This means that I go off plan and really stray from the path.

I make justifications like, I deserve this. I've worked hard all week and this is my treat. But then one turns into two, turns into three and so on.

I always make the resolve to start again on Monday, but today have already pretty much blown it. Breakfast? Over 600 calories.

    I have the same problem. It is all about planning which I find is easy during the week when you are at work and preoccupied with the job..but during the weekend, i go hog wild and treat myself like i earned the reward to eat what i want..all that does is undo all of our hardwork during the week 8-(

    No no no, breakfast is not blown at 600 calories. If you have the right foods, filling foods, that 600 calorie could take you through until lunch, maybe through lunch, maybe through a snack or two and even up to dinner!! I have lots of 600 calorie breakfasts. I also have some that are 200 and 300, but then I have to have a snack in a couple of hours.

    So just find those foods that are filling. If you run out of calories as the day progresses, then turn to lots and lots of veggies, like a BAS (big @$$ salad).

    Sometimes I track ahead of time. That helps to make sure I have enough for the day. And if I dont but I am still hungry, then veggies it is.

    My blog today was YAHH it is Monday. I have the same problem. What I have started doing is workout on Saturday or Sunday before anything else that way what I do and eat is always in the front of my mind as I have already worked so hard for the day. I go over often on the weekends but I work extra hard during the week to make up for it. Sadly I spend so much time making up for it I don't lose. It is a vicious cycle. It is okay to have a free day but not a free weekend and still lose.

    Good Luck! It may help to plan out your weekends like you do your work week that way you know what to expect.
