Weekend Temptation

The weekend is my weakness.  I don’t know what it is about the weekend, but I always lose my great week discipline.  That’s such an American thing, I think, and everything I have even been taught:  Be good all week, do your work, and the weekend is a free-for-all.

Typically, Andrew and I both work on Saturdays and have Sunday off.  As soon as the weekend starts on Saturday, I am in eat whatever mode and it continues until guilt sets in sometime late Sunday when my stomach hurts.

This weekend was no different: I had a craving for chips and queso.  So we went out and bought chips, queso, and salsa.  While we were at the store we decided we wanted an easy dinner night and we bought pizza.  Then we realized we hadn’t had lunch and we bought Taco Bell.  That was enough damage to do me in.

Every weekend seems to  be the same.  I let my guard down, eat like crap, and feel terrible. I am not being black and white.  I live in a gray area.

It has to stop.  And sadly, only I can stop it.  So that is my goal for this weekend: to not lose track, to keep my eye on the prize, and survive the weekend without that Sunday food guilt.

  1. Hi Emily! I just read your piece on Hellogiggles about your wedding and fell in love with it! It so completely mirrored my wedding day as well. 🙂 Your pictures were so adorable!!! I found your blog and stumbled upon this one — and holy crap, I know this well! I was just recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and have to get myself in control — after living a life of being a fat child turned fat adult! I have been doing so, so well, and also find myself falling off the wagon in regards to the weekend!! Ugh. This so totally got me. I feel ya, girl! Thanks for your awesome blog and inspiration!! I’m excited to have found it. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for all of the kind words! I am borderline Type 2 and that was a HUGE wake up call for me. I don’t want my silly little addiction to food to be the thing that does me in. Girl keep up all the great work! And please reach out to me if you ever need motivation!

      1. Hey Emily!
