The merry go round of dieting. I'm sure some of you have heard of it..... eat healthy Monday through Thursday then Friday comes along and sabotage begins all weekend long.... Monday arrives again and it's back to Sparkling ...healthy this, healthy that....around and around.
Over a year ago July 2018 I decided I had enough of this ride of feeling guilty, bloated, unhappy with weekend choices. I needed to change my eating habits. I knew if I continued to make weekends my eat whatever I want because I ate healthy all week long kind of weekends I would never reach my goals. I had to start loving my body, myself and I had to get off this ride and leave that word diet behind.
Since then I lost weight, lost guilt, sadness and that bloated feeling from eating not so healthy and drinking too much wine or beer.
I eat healthy. I don't drink alcohol....and haven't since July 3rd 2018. Weekends to me are just like weekdays. I'm healthy, happy and living a life I enjoy every day. I have no desire to get back on that merry go round ride again.
If you find yourself on this kind of merry go round diet leave it you'll be happy you did. Begin now and do your best....you are worth it!
We suffer from the same thing...bad or too much weekend eating! It seems like we just keep repeating our same bad eating habits. Good to know you figured out how to break the cycle...thanks for the inspiration. I decided today, actually, I am going to set my foot down and say no to those foods! 21 days ago
I have been doing the same thing week after week. I eat healthy during the week and think it’s ok to eat more unhealthy foods on the weekend. Your blog has encouraged and motivated me to make better choices on the weekend as well. I just need to start now. Thank you. Also love all the good healthy food you make and post pictures of always looks so good. You can be proud that you got control and made those healthy choices. 22 days ago
