Man, I really blow all my weekday efforts on the weekends when it comes to dieting & exercising. The past month I’ve been a weekday warrior but come Friday night it’s a slippery slope and I have been a weekend waverer. Just like Rebecca Black says (http://youtu.be/CD2LRROpph0) You gotta get down on Friday! (It’s such a bad song but sometimes it does make me want to shake my moneymaker.) That’s what we do. Cut loose, have fun and enjoy our weekend. Fun, fun, fun, fun.
Ok, ok, back to the problem. It’s gorgeous outside now in Kansas City with vibrant green grass and clear blue skies. So, my husband & I have been heading to restaurants with outdoor patios and having some delicious adult beverages. I try to order small plates, appetizers or eat half of my dinner to watch my calories. But then, my husband gets a dessert to go. And in my tipsy weakness and against my better judgement I indulge later that night. Ugh. It gets worse. We do it again on Saturday night. Then Sunday I’m too lazy to grocery shop so we order take out. I’ve been losing weight but not as much as it should be due to my bad weekend habits.
I have been really good during the week. I’m mostly staying on track with the Cinch diet. I have my shelf of dark chocolate, nuts, beans & dried fruit when I need something quick. I’ve stepped up my exercise, and good thing I do the way my weekends have been going. I try to do an hour on the treadmill 4-5 times a week. Also, I do some yoga as much as I can.
What’s the solution? Is it just lack of self-control?
