I have such a hard time with eating well on the weekends!!
I am so good during the week —
Yogurt and granola bar in the morning
Salad for lunch
a healthy, well portioned dinner (such as a chicken and a veggie or something similar, small portion, make sure to keep the salt down, etc.)
BUT — then the weekend comes! And I go out and have a few drinks (it’s not that many but tons of calories!), and go out to dinners (I love Italian!) and snack on chips and other unhealthy things. Does anyone have any advice on how to stop these bad habits?!
I really need/want to make this happen. I just can’t say no on the weekends; and I often say that I’m rewarding myself for being good during the week, but I know that isn’t good. I’m working out 5 days a week — Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs & Saturday — I give my body some rest on Friday & Sunday. I would love any advice!

I don’t have much of a recommendation as far as eating out, because it’s often my downfall, too.
But get the crappy diet-disasters OUT of your house. It’s a lot easier to say no to them when eating them involves running out and actually buying them!

Thanks for at least making me feel like I’m not alone!!
I have nothing in my apartment right now, so this weekend was a little better then usual — but I’m currently living (for the next three months) right in a downtown area that is so easily accessible to so many bad for me places!!

Hang in there, HumarockBride! I’ve found that something that helps me is to eat as close to the same time as possible every day. If my weekday lunch time is noon, then, I try to eat lunch at noon on Saturday and Sunday, too. One thing that makes this easier is that I also try to wake up at the same time every day (which is recommended as the best sleep pattern). I know that if I sleep in too late, and then eat everything much later, that I’m more likely to overindulge than I otherwise might be.

weekends are the worst! I totally agree! for me weekdays are easier because you are in a routine, and then the weekends are brunches and dinners out and it get so much harder. My approach is to try and make good choices as often as you can, forgive yourself for being human and therefore not always being able to, and when you do give in, try to not eat everything on your plate! Rinse and repeat, and enjoy the wine/good times – life is for living and not always for always doing the "right" thing!

You have to give yourself one day semi-free. You’re so good the rest of the week, one off day shouldn’t really hurt you.

Life is for living! Heck yes! I agree. I think I’m doing well, I just have to stick to it, and yeah one day of not being so great shouldnt ruin all my good work from the week before! Thanks ladies!
