Pitfalls

What is your healthy/weight loss pitfall? Mine, is the weekends and I have realized this! Weekends are a time that there is no set schedual with anything and things happen on their own accord. Like this last weekend. We ended up moving the rest of my grandmothers things out of the house and I ended up vacuming both the up and down stairs. My parents went and bought McDonalds for lunch. Then by the time we were done I was totally exausted and we ended up getting pizza for dinner.

I did wonderful all week with my food, that is until the weekend hits then it is caos.... Sunday though I do have to say I did somewhat better. I also went to church for the first time in a long time and I have to say I enjoyed it and needed to get back in there. I will be back next Sunday! At the begininning of the year something said to me that I need to go back to church and I really thought about it, but didn't know where to go. Last weekend a friend of ours invited us to their church and so we went(the girls and I, I cann't get JR in there yet).

I am still so in love with the app FatSecret! It is so easy to use and I have been tracking everything, the good, the bad and the ugly!

I will be weighing in later this week and will post then!  I hope that everyone has a great week!!

I'm the same way on the weekends. I went away this weekend and only gained .2 pounds. I have no clue how. I usually gain about 2-3 pounds on the weekends and spend the whole week trying to get back to normal. Seems like I should be able to control it, but it happens weekly. I'll blame all of my travels and my hubby:)

Our date night is usually my pitfall - we go out for dinner and I always get an appetizer, dinner and of course dessert!

Weekends can be tough when you are on the go and eating out. I have found some tricks that work for me... when the family night involves ordering pizza, I pack a huge mixed green salad, veggies and a plain chicken breast. I hate food going to waste so I don't forget to eat it!

My DH still gets McD's from time to time & the kiddos love the fries. I haven't had a fry in months & opt to buy a yogurt at a convenience store or pack extra Fiber Plus bars in my bag.

Have a great week!

Weekends are hard for me too, but that is when my boys and husband come in handy, because they tell me not to eat the bad stuff. Do you have a support person?
