What does your typical eating week look like?
If you’re like I used to be, it would look straight and narrow Monday through Thursday, and wide-open and full speed ahead on the weekend.
I’d tell myself on Friday that I deserved to reward myself for getting through the week. For accomplishing all that I did. For putting in hours and powering through, even when I was tired.
And, I had a very willing partner in my husband, David, whose favorite suggestion is always, “Let’s treat ourselves! It’s the weekend!”
So… I deserved to ‘treat myself’, right?
And that’s what I did. Until too many Monday mornings of shame, regret, and an upward moving scale woke me up.
I finally realized that if I kept up the pattern I was living in, I’d never get where I wanted to go.
I’d never accomplish my eating goals. My self-care goals. And certainly not my weight goals.
So, what’s the solution? Do you have to be strict and rigid and hard on yourself all the time?
No! If you know me, you know that’s not how I roll. Pull up a comfy chair and listen as I coach you on how to have a good week AND a good weekend and still be heading in the right direction.
