So it’s finally the weekend. All week long I tracked my food, exercised, and stayed within 100 calories of my goal. I have a bad habit of treating the weekend like a free-for-all. I mean, planning is harder, opportunities arise, things happen. I’m also not usually sitting in front of a computer all weekend like I am at work, so the bookmark for the tracking site that I use isn’t staring me in the face.
I want to work on stopping this little bit of self-sabotage. I feel like I took a step in that direction by committing to an hour workout one day of the weekend. But my weekend eating habits really need to change. I don’t have a plan yet, but I know I don’t want to completely lose the fun of a spontaneous night out, or a special weekend treat. That’s one of the ways I’ve messed up before, being entirely too strict. As Cassie says, “Everything in moderation, even moderation.”
One thing I’m going to try is having the kind of breakfast I have for work, like a Chobani, so I start out with some protein. I also need to get better at grocery shopping so I have things on hand that I WANT to eat. (I just moved into this apartment so grocery shopping has been at the bottom of the to-do list) I’d love hear anything that has worked for you!
How do you handle your eating on the weekends?
