Boy am I ever glad the weekends over!

What is up with me and the weekends? I don't think this weighing once a month is a good thing! I have been on some kind of "Reckless Abandon" on the weekends! I am not dieting but, I definately am not even thinking about being too healthy on the weekends!

Gotta step back and rethink my strategy here. I know what I need to do, so why am I not doing it right now? I was still doing my exercise. Notice I said "was"? Yesterday I forgot to walk...arghhh! So today I need to do two 15 minute sessions on the treadmill! I can not let it slide, if I do I will be right back to slugville!

I could really use some words of encouragement here! I feel like I am sliding down that slippery slope that has the "golden arches" waiting invitingly at the bottom! Help!

The Golden Arches, lol. I am so proud of you for having the courage and dedication to climb on that treadmill each and everyday. You are my inspiration. Keep up the good work!

Mel...you are not only my daughter, but also my best friend!

Chrissi...thanks for the kind words...I soooo need them, also could use a kick in the butt! (notice, I did not say that to my daughter as she is close enough and would not hesitate to do it!)

Hi, I'm coming through BlogMad, and thought I'd comment.

I feel your frustration so much, as I'm going through the same thing, you can do this! You know you can.

Don't sweat it if you miss a walk. You don't have to double up either. Just pick up, brush off and know that the next day is a whole new day and you'll get back on track. :)

I've made a treadmill goal quite similar to yours, and it started out hard, but I ended up craving that walk.

I would suggest that you do weigh yourself everyday. Now I know that they say not too, but I've also heard that weighing yourself helps keep you in check and it's actually beneficial to your losing the unwanted lbs.

Alrighty, I didn't intend to write a small book here, I just wanted to let you know that you can do this! It's in side of you, you just need to pull it out. :)

Weekends are a problem for me too. It's like I'm being pulled into sloth mode where all I want to do is sit on my butt reading or watching TV and eating Junk Food.

You can do this! Look at what you've already accomplished!

Oh I love the Golden Arches! Glad I found your blog - I need some encouragement too!
I started last week with the plan to take weekends off...not go wild, but allow myself some wiggle room. M-F I'm VERY strict about what goes in my mouth.
I haven't noticed anything yet, but again - it's only been a week.

You can do this! Stick with it! And all that other cliche stuff that sometimes ya just need!

Valerie, thanks for coming by and actually leaving me a comment! Good luck to you! I like "some wiggle room" that's a good way to put it! That's what my Sundays are. At church we have cookies between sessions. I don't ever want to feel deprived so I allow myself 2 cookies...only problem is, I am not stopping there! I never used to have more than two, but now when I have allowed myself those two, I want to make it three or four!
Are you following any particular plan during the week or just being careful? Mine is mostly no white flour or sugar. You would be suprised what has sugar in it, and white flour also. I am also diabetic so I try to balance my good carbs with protein too! Again, good luck and come back and let me know how you are doing!

Krista, Sunday afternoon is nap time for me, lol! Me & the pups! And fuzz butt (the cat) too! It's not so much my activity level as it is my eating! Thank you for the good words...hope I can live up to them!
