I find myself really struggling with my weight loss over the weekends. I do really well during the week but we've been incredibly busy during the weekends and have either been away from home or too exhausted to cook.
Take this past weekend, for instance. On Saturday my parents came up and we went out to lunch. But then we got to the evening and didn't have dinner plans (we thought we would be doing something for dinner Saturday that then got switched to Sunday), so we ran out. Sunday The Hubby's parents were at our house and they brought bologna salad and chips for lunch. There were donuts for breakfast. There were cookies around. We had pizza for dinner because everyone was exhausted from working.
I made the best choices I could in bad situations--I had half a cookie. I only had a few chips. Used my light bread for my bologna salad sandwich. Got a salad and a light lunch on Saturday. Worked out on Saturday.
I just have a feeling, though, that it isn't going to do any good. I do my best during the weekend but still feel like I need to put forth more effort. This coming weekend we'll be back at the in-laws' house for the whole weekend again and I'll have little control. Again.
I'm doing the best I can, but how can everyone else splurge on the weekends and hover at slightly pudgy or overweight while I'm in the obese category and analyzing every damn bite? I guess I end up feeling sorry for myself sometimes. Why do *I* have to work so damned hard at this?
