Left leg stronger than the Right leg

How weird is that? Found out at my PT evaluation yesterday.

Anyway......I wanted to talk about eating on the weekends. I suck at it. During the work week I have a routine. I have a set time to workout, eat, drink water, head to the office, healthy snacks, walking, lunch, dinner, errands and stretching.

On the weekends, well everything is so loosey goosey. I never remember to eat. I never eat at my usual times and usually.......I don't eat enough or drink enough water either.

This last Saturday I had an appointment in the morning, got too busy before I left and didn't realize until after my appointment that I didn't eat breakfast. So I had breakfast at 12:30pm. Dinner was later and I wasn't very hungry but we went to Sushi and I had salmon nigiri.

Sunday we had breakfast, ran errands, got busy again and before I realized it, it was dinner time. Didn't eat lunch. Didn't snack.

I need to come up with a plan of action for the weekends. I have to come up with some routine to make sure I'm eating regular meals.

Fortunately, I'm not eating a bunch of garbage and sticking mainly to healthy foods (oh Killer Burger...it's been so long). My husband has been on a melon kick (yeah...I know that sounds dirty), so I've had a ton of fresh cut fruit to eat. He even made a fresh fruit salad with blueberries, cantaloupe and cherries this weekend.

So back to my action plan. I'm at a loss here as to how to approach the weekends to make sure I'm eating more than twice a day. I could work every weekend. No. I could have an alarm go off for every meal. No. No. No.

How does everyone else handle eating on their days off?

    Do you need to eat regularly? If not, then as long as you're eating good stuff, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Yeah.....I'm not sure how to fix this one. We have a lot going on during the weekends and the usual routine doesn't always fit into the plans.

    Like you I didn't want to get too regimented.

    I have the same issues as you do with the weekends. My husband and I usually have a late breakfast (that really could be lunch) and, depending on what we have, don't eat lunch at all. Dinner is usually healthy and a little earlier than usual, but yeah. It's a problem I've noticed that I'm kinda lost on fixing without being too regimented.
