I totally have to get the weekends under control. I need to find a happy medium between allowing myself some wiggle room and going all out nuts.
This past weekend could have been worse, but it was not good. Ice cream cake, a big juicy Steakhouse burger and fries, huge breakfast, lots of high calorie drinks.... I'm all about indulging a little on weekends because it keeps me sane during the week, but there has got to be a line somewhere so that I don't spend 3 of the next 5 days trying to lose the weight I gained over the weekend. It's ridiculous really, and it's a pattern I seem to have gotten into - so my newest goal is that I would like to limit myself to one or two main "cheat" meals (or a night of drinks instead of a cheat meal) each weekend - but not a whole "cheat" weekend.
It would be so easy to just give up. Finding the right balance sucks and it's hard. I have to hang in there though - I'm getting so close to my goal. Then things will get even harder...maintenance - so scary.
