Ahhhh, Friday! Even when I don’t have anything super special planned, I still get excited about the weekend.
Way back before I started my tippy-toeing ways, weekends were often the undoing of my diet plans. I’d do just fine during the week, but something would happen on the weekend–I think it was the unstructured time–and I’d get off-track. A few times, I actually dreaded the approach of the weekend. Me!
With this newer, more successful, way of thinking/living, weekends weren’t usually much of a struggle. I had my sparkpeople.com nutrition log to maintain and a whole bunch of checkmarks in my exercise log to remind me of how great I was doing. As I approached the weekends, I’d see the positive pattern in my logs and commit to keeping the chain going.
I know that many people struggle with weekends (I still do sometimes, depending on what’s going on) after having very successful weeks. If you know a little something about how that feels, maybe a mantra will help you keep your focus.
Happy weekend, everyone! You’ve got this!
