Weekend War

The weekend seems to always bring with it multiple challenges to staying on plan. Routines are interrupted, occasions are celebrated and food is always involved...on the weekend.

While we should do our best to avoid temptation all together, sometimes it's just not possible. You can't NOT go camping with your family. You can't NOT have dinner where your husband wants to for his birthday. You can't NOT attend events that mean a great deal to you. There are always going to be instances where we have to face temptation head on.

In those instances, one of two things is going to happen. 1) Plan stays in tact; no harm, no foul. On track. or 2) Slip-ups occur and damage control becomes the focus. Bounce back. Of course the first option is ideal, but the second is more likely, given the nature of most of our problems.

So whatever the weekend brought your way, remember that today has come! A new beginning. I, for one, will not dwell on the fact I ate my weight in goldfish on Saturday night, went over my "extra calories" every day of the wknd, and did not like the number I saw on the scale this morning. I can't dwell on it and neither can you.

Pray for Joplin!

You're right...weekends are just plain hard. I too didn't like the number on the scale this morning. All we can do is move forward!

As I looked at your tracker, I actually thought you did really well. Much better than I did over the weekend if that makes you feel any better. LOL!

Onward we go!!!

Weekends are killer. The kids are home snacking or we're running from activity to activity without time to eat at home. I don't ever weigh myself on Mondays. :)

My prayers are with Joplin, too. I can't even imagine such devestation...
