Workday vs. Weekend

My monthly weight loss SNAFU has passed and things seem to be getting back to normal! I was 142 on the button this morning.

Today was another "good" day! I walked 1.25 miles before lunch and I ate 1820 total calories today. If things keep up going this well I will get my next reward August 9th... which is my niece's Birthday! She is going to be 11 this year, that is the same age as Harry Potter in book one! Okay, I'll stop being such a nerd. ;)

I LOVE Workdays! They are so much easier for weight loss than Weekends. On workdays, I know what I am eating and when:

7:30 AM - Oatmeal & Orange Juice
10:00 AM - Banana
11:30 AM - Light Yogurt with 1/2 cup All-Bran
1:00 PM - Turkey and Mustard on Whole Wheat*
3:00 PM - Snack Bar

* Or another lunch of equal caloric value.

Then I get home and have a nice supper with a treat/dessert. The rest of the evening I play games, have fun on the computer, or watch T.V. These activities keep me occupied and safe from mindless over-eating.

The weekends however are dangerous. My schedule is all different and there are often family functions that involve food! (Like that upcoming birthday!) I normally take it easy on the weekend and just hope that I will be the same weight on Monday that I was on Friday. ;)

2 more days until the weekend!!!
