    Wow, that post hit home. I was just thinking I really need to get out of the habit of totally overeating on Saturday. It has gotten really bad for me and I have the “all or nothing” mentality. I ate so much Saturday (so, so much). I need to learn how to stop myself from doing this every week.

      It’s definitely hard. I wish it were an easy thing to do!

    What great tips!! I try to fit in workouts during the weekend too – especially given that they dont have to be rushed!

    Im definitely a weekend overeater. And sometimes a night overeater. But, I think it (mostly) all evens out! Love your tips + we should meet up next year somewhere exotic if you plan to do a tri!

      That would be cool! I would love to travel somewhere to do a run/tri!

    I really struggle on the w/e. I do a good job o weekdays b/c I pack my lunch so I pack healthy, and so I either eat what i have or starve (I teach so i can’t leave the school, we eat with the kids.) but then I so blow it on the weekends! I am getting better though.

    I am a weekday snacker! Weekends are so filled with errands and things that I eat pretty well. Work snacking is out of control!

      I am too. My office has a “Candy Room” that is very hard to resist some days!

    For me, “business as usual” is key. If I fret about a dinner out, I’m likely to overeat. If I just eat normally during the day, I’m in much better shape to make a good menu decision.

      That’s a good plan. As long as it’s not pizza, I can usually resist!

    I don’t overeat at weekends typically but when I go away for the weekend I do! Meeting friends at restaurants and going to starbucks means I consume more calories but I do always try to make good choices, and not let ‘holiday mode’ set in! I am guilty of not exercising on weekends, it’s something I need to watch!
