overcoming weekend sabotage

Friday, January 29, 2016

I want to talk just a bit about weekend blowouts. You know what I mean, we think---I worked super hard all week, and was so good, I am just gonna relax----

This is something that I used to struggle with, but then it hit me. WHY am I putting in all this hard work, if I am just going to throw in the towel every weekend, why even do it?

So after much thought, and processing --I figured out what the main culprit was. I stuff my weekends with, well stuff. Grocery shopping, fun family things, eating out, -you get the picture---and I was just tired and looking for a quick fix, which is why I ate CRUD. emoticon emoticon

Sooooooo here was my fix--I now write out, and prep/make all of my weekend meals on Thursday & Friday--so it's all done. I can either throw it in the crockpot and go-or I can throw it in the microwave, and have it ready in a few minutes. I also do allow myself one ''cheat meal'' a week--my doc even suggested it. But I plan for that too. Maybe it's a slice of pie emoticon with my dinner, or some really delish pasta, or a blizzard emoticon from DQ, depends on what I am up for.
I also plan my fitness too. Sunday is always my rest day--so it's easy. Saturday we normally go to the gym, and I do my weekly 5k then, and then we swim until we get hungry with our daughter. Friday is my tough day---so I have started doing an at home workout 1st thing, then if I have time later I will do more. But at least I got one in=)

    Makes sense. I do the cheat meal and plan for it too. I try to plan all my meals a few days ahead depending on the family schedule. Helps me track better.
