Weekend lessons...

Why is the weekend so freaking hard to keep tracking and stay within points/ranges? Why??

I find it so incredibly frustrating. This last weekend was Bad with a capital B eating-wise. I think there was very little I ate that wasn't fried up until Sunday. Sunday I ate a super healthy dinner but it doesn't undo all of Friday and Saturday!

Although, I have to say that one thing I'm learning about my habits on the weekend is that they are at least much more balanced. I eat heavier, but I'm also often way more active than I used to be. Saturday, Peggy and I walked all over downtown Vancouver and Sunday, Jon and I were out for the day and did tons of walking (and I made sure we walked a brisk pace, to get some actual exercise benefit).

I think living in Vancouver has really helped me health-wise. Being in a big city means I take public transportation and walk sooo much more. Living in the 'burbs in Washington State I just used to drive everywhere, even the mailbox! *blush*

So the lesson I've learned, at this point, is that on the weekend, I need to watch my eating more, and also pat myself on the back more for the extra activity I get in! :)

I guess in the end it all balances out...

    And I'd take cardio health over weight loss any day of the week. Cardio health will pay off big time over the decades in terms of improved health. Weight loss will too but not to the same extent, IMO. Good job!

    On the weekends, I notice my life is less structured and if I'm bored, I reach for food. My trick is to reach for a bottle of water with lemon. It delays the eating and helps me stay on track. Boredom is a horrible thing!
