Hello everyone, this past work week was a busy one for me I currently have three after work evening commitments, zumba, bible study and a fincial class with hubby. So I was very grateful when Friday rolled around, I recently realized that I have been treating the weekends like they don't count food/drink wise. In my head I know that they are the same as any other day but lately hubby and I have been going out to eat more on Fridays and when we go out to eat it is easier for me to cheat and eat higher carb and sugar items. I think that is because when I make food at home I know how it is prepared and how much fat/sugar/salt is in the meal. I need to be more purposeful to eat good when I eat out because little cheats add up to big cheats and bad behaviors. Another thing about the weekends that we are working on is our alcohol consumption, I feel hesitant in talking about this because I know my Mom sometimes reads my blog and she commented on it the last time I talked about it. Anyway, lately we have been having about two extra glasses of wine at a time and it is getting in the way. So for now I am committing to not drinking and getting back to the basics, focusing on food journaling, and low sugar and better carb eating, and being consistent with my exercise.
Last night we had a delicious salad for dinner with a dressing I made with a little greek yogurt, vinegar, olive oil, chives and oregano, I put everything in the food processor and it was delish. After dinner we were productive instead of sitting on the couch enjoying wine and a movie, I cleaned/organized my closet (a big thing for me because I hate doing it) and hubby worked on organizing his study room.
It feels good to treat this weekend like it counts right now instead of my usual wine on Saturday I am enjoying green tea and hubby is in the study working on homework. As I reflected on 2012 so far I realized I had gotten lax and straight up lazy with some of my habits. Starting with the superbowl hubby and I lowered our guard and ate and drank too much causing both of us to gain weight, once I had to reckon with my weight gain I vowed to do better in March, and I mostly did except I was still treating the weekends like they didn't count, and it has truly only been in this last week that I have realized that I need to start treating the weekends like they count or I will never make the progress I desire. I guess that's all for now, I hope everyone is having a nice weekend :)
