Weekends are evil.....

Monday, April 15, 2013

I hate them! Don't get me wrong I love the time off of work and the time with my friends and family. I hate that I get off track! I am pretty structured during the week and I have a problem keeping that structure on the weekends. It is like my brain and body team up and go crazy on Friday and the rest of the weekend! I get crazy cravings for food I don't normally want....on Fridays. I guess I start thinking about having time off and my body thinks it is time to go crazy. I have to get a handle on it because it is making it very difficult to get back on track when I fall so far off. Has anybody successfully dealt with weekends? How did you overcome getting off track?

On a fun note we were on our way into town to run some errands when our 5 year old niece called and asked us to come blueberry picking. Who can say no to a 5 year old when she is so sweet?! We promptly changed our plans and met up with them at a local blueberry farm and had a blast! Below is a picture I snapped :)

    Most of us tend to think, "weekend time to relax"! I am learning that I need to face weekend temptations with the determination to make good choices. It seems crazy but now that I am tracking my food, it is giving me a sense of power. I can be in control and it feels good! You can do it, Jenn! Maybe, find fun things to do(like picking berries), making a bucket list of weekend adventures or hobbies that you want to tackle. emoticon

    Rest assured you are not the only one with the weekend woes. Monday - Friday is all business but Saturday and Sunday are completely off the rails at times for me

    How fun! I have a hard time too, on the weekends! We are such creatures of habit that is hard to stay on track when that is changed! I just try to remind myself how hard I have worked during the week and that I don't want to undo all the good that I have done!
