Default Re: Weekends

Hello everyone. I recently started working out and eating right. I am able to stick to this religiously Mon-Fri. Weekends come and bam, I go way off track with my eating. How do you keep yourself from doing this? Thanks

If you go out, go to places where the menu has options: steamed veggies, grilled, broiled or baked sources of protein, etc.

If, presented with bread,..exercise some self control! In the beginning I would have it all, then I decided one slice without butter was enough..then, I didn't even wanted it and asked the waiter not to bring it.

When faced with salad bar before meal, have a salad dressing or a bit of oil and vinegar will do. Always ask for water or decaf, in my case.

I know IHOP has nothing good for me, so I don't go there. Find a place were you can all go and compromise. Planning like X said, works! I eat on the clock too.

Make your own healthy versions of food and have them handy. Check our recipes forum:

Keep your water intake up, have your meals in a timely fashion, buy a small cooler and have your food setup there for eating. Swith fatty, starchy carb stuff for steamed veggies *ask for a substitution*, wean off those foods you love my cutting down the amount of them you have over time.

Just some ideas,

Nothing seems tiresome or painful when you are working for a Master who
pays well, who rewards even a cup of cold water given for love of Him.

- St. Dominic Savio (1842-1857)
We must pray without tiring, for the salvation of mankind does not depend on material success, nor on sciences that cloud the intellect. Neither does it depend on arms and human industries, but on Jesus alone.

- St. Frances Xavier Cabrini (1850-1917)
