Weekends can be tough. During the week, I have a schedule for myself. I know what I need to do with my kids, the meals I cook are planned out pretty well, I have my housework stuff I do on certain days, my business has all of its' moving parts. I just have a flow that works for me.
Weekends are another story. There are things we need to do with the kids and the laundry and grocery shopping and all of that, and then there is free time. The rhythm of the weekend is slower and more relaxed, and that can be challenging when I am endeavoring to lose weight. It is very easy for me to take a nap and eat out.
Now I am not saying there is anything wrong with taking a nap and eating out. I love a good nap. But since my focus is now on moving my body more, it feels a little tricky to get the balance of it all. We tend to eat later on the weekends. We tend to be a little bit lazier on the weekends. Again, all good stuff. I am just having a harder time navigating it with my goal to release some poundage.
I suppose I could all "weekend warrior" on my family, but I hate being super sore, so that is out. Walking the dog is always a great way to get my butt outside and moving, so that is a great option for me.
I don't have this one quite figured out yet, but I am going to keep on keeping on and shoot for more fun, more movement and maybe a little nap on Sunday!!
