Weekend Weight Loss

During the week I have a pretty good routine for eating. Having the home daycare makes meals and snacks more timed because the little ones get cranky when they are hungry and we don’t
want that if it’s preventable! The best thing I did the last few days that helped keep me on track was to ensure I ate at least 100 calories every 2 hours. It really made a difference and held me through to the next meal or snack. I also was making better choices.

The second thing that helped me was writing what I was going to eat, at what time, and what the calorie count was the day before. This way I wasn’t making choices on an empty stomach and grabbing whatever was handy to fill the void.

Weekends are definitely more relaxed around here. The kids are outside playing while my husband and I are catching up on house work, yard work, relaxing ourselves, etc. Without the structure of the week I’m definitely more prone to graze. I’m going to continue with making my list and ensure that my veggies are prepared for healthy grazing if I find I’m desperate for something.

How do you keep your eating in check?

  1. I definitely need to eat a little something healthy to not get to that "low blood sugar – give me ANYTHING to eat right now!" feeling. We keep raw almonds and low fat string cheese around, that helps a lot.

    So happy to have met you through SITS Saturday Sharefest :->

  2. I think I might try writing down when and what I'll eat, maybe that will help my snacking. This week I plan to take my eating in hand and lose my belly! Have a great weekend, stopping by from the Saturday Sharefest.

  3. I think that is one of the things most of us deal with… weekend grazing! I use My Fitness Pal to track what I eat and it helps a lot.

    Visiting from SITS, make it a great day!

  4. I'm a nutritionist, so keeping my eating in check is kind of part of my job requirement. 😉 Even so, I am pregnant right now and find myself wanting junk more often than not! I just try to remind myself how good I feel when I eat nutritious food. It is so much more rewarding in the long run. Sounds like you're doing great! (visiting from SITS)

  5. I use My Everyday Health online to track my calories (same idea as My Fitness Pal). I didn't do so well on the weekend grazing but am hoping to make up for it this week.
