So I’ve been killing it. I still do my walks every day, I’m making “Healthier” choices ( more on that later ), so why have I lost all my will power?
This weekend was SUPER DUPER bad because it was Double XP in EverQuest 2, and well I decided to power level a new warlock. ( 7 hours on Sunday and 6 hours on Monday = lvl 85 ) So I totally rocked it but because it was double xp, I didn’t really leave the computer as much as I should have.
All my reasons for getting healthy are still there. I still see that fat girl in the mirror. I obviously still get the comments in stores. I still have my husband and daughter to keep my focused on living a long healthy life.
So why has my will power gone on vacation? HELLO! I need you back its Monday, and I’m STRUGGLING!
Honestly, during the week I’m usually spot on-ish. I stay away from fast food, I do my walks, I do little strength training stuffs here in the office between jobs, and I eat what I bring from home for lunches.
Why on the weekends do I find it so hard to eat… and eat right at that. I noticed that over the weekends I tend to not eat meals, but to snack through the day. What makes it worse is the fact that those snacks are low salt pretzels, Red Vines ( I really should just those away ), Skinny Cow ice cream bars, etc.
See they are not HORRIBLE things if I remember my own MODERATION rule. They aren’t off limits, but during the weekend, those are the type of things I eat during the day and then I eat a decent, totally acceptable dinner.
I don’t know what my issue is. This is stupid. I think my will power just decides to take a break when I need it most… the Weekends.
Will Power please come back!

Me: Sure if I only eat one.
