Weekend Temptations 

Hi everyone!

When I decided that I was going to start sharing, I told myself I was going to be completely honest. I don’t know who created the message above, but it spoke to me. The weekends are my biggest challenge! I love eating out and I love cocktails! Those are two of the worst things for someone who is trying to achieve a weight-loss goals.

Friday

I had barbecue pulled pork, mac & cheese, and collard greens. If it matters at all I didn’t finish any of the three.  After, I went to Wet Willies; the Bob Marley is great! I highly recommend it!

Saturday

I had a grouper sandwich and a cocktail called Blue Lagoon.  Not to justify this, but I did go kayaking that morning and it was a pretty strenuous work out, I’m just saying.  I also fell out the boat so, I figured I deserved a treat.

Later…

I had one crabcake, salad, and Crème Brûlée. Oh, I also had two Blueberry Lemon Drops. I know, I know, but I love crème brûlée and I don’t get it often. I guess I didn’t need two cocktails especially since I had one earlier in the day. It was pretty amazing though, I’m so weak.

Sunday

Today I am at a clean slate, but at a crossroads. I am supposed to go to brunch and I already know that I want the French toast and bacon. If you don’t know, Datz has got the best bacon.

I know that I should cut back and I know that I need to make better choices. It’s the same cycle every weekend, during the week I lose weight and then the weekend comes I put on at least a pound. Two steps forward, one step back, literally.

I  am a single woman so I can’t possibly just stay home, I need to be out mingling. Anyone else facing this issue? What should I do? How do I remain social and maintain my health goals?

  1. Hell, I’m home and not single and its still hard for me to manage my diet. Lol. Thinking back to my single times, I ate without no regard to dieting, but that was when I was a younger man. All I can suggest is salads while your out and I don’t think wine is too fattening, but diffinitly want to stay clear of beers.

  2. That speaks to me too. The weekends are brutal. In my case it is because I don’t plan. I meal plan Sunday to Thursday. Friday and Saturday are cheat days. Bob Harper suggests on cheat meal a week. I give myself six 😂.

I am a slave to temptation. Chocolate, carbs, booze, bad behaviour, and generally poor impulse control. I'm human. I'm also smart, funny, and people like me, goddamnit.
