Days my daughter works are more stressful for me because her job is very hard and even though she's conscientious, some other people are not and all the work falls on her. She comes home feeling very depressed and defeated and it breaks my heart. When I'm sad or angry, I overeat.

Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays are my hardest days! I get out of class early on those days (1 pm) and usually head straight home with little other than homework planned for the evening. I get to tempted to munch mindlessly.
My schedule is packed until dinnertime on Tues/Thurs and I am at school with only the food I brought with me, so it's relatively easy to stay on track. My weekends are also usually jam-packed and meals have to be pre-planned to be packed along because we don't have much of an eating out budget. Weekends are only hard on the rare occasion I get to be lazy and lounge about the house.
I find it easier to stick with the routine during the week. On weekends I might get in more exercise, but it's also when I like to bake and/or drink alcohol, so I have to be more vigilant to balance the calories.
I've noticed certain times of the year are more difficult too. Obviously holidays come with more special foods, but when the weather gets cold I find myself craving more breads and desserts.
LuAnn, I find Saturday, my only free day, problematic in that I feel I've got all the time, and suddenly I don't. I don't plan for exercise on Saturday, but I'm often active in some form. Meal wise, any day where I'm working at more than two locations can derail my plans, mainly in IF eating windows. Both are time conceptualization issues.

Thursdays are my "breaking" day. The fatigue of the week has set in and I'm one day short of the weekend. It's the day I usually get "take out" which is sadly the beginning of eating out for Friday and Saturday. I MUST pull myself together!

I am so used to exercise that doing it is easy any day of the week is fine. If any thing, my work schedule makes my workouts more ineffective. I currently work 8 to 4:30. I prefer a 6 AM to 2:30 or 7 to 3:30 PM. Because of my current schedule, I am working out more in the morning and I feel my workouts are less effective.
" What makes certain days of the week more difficult" For me, it's the commitments I have on those days, which have nothing to do with weekday or weekend. For example, Thursdays can be difficult as that is the day I care for my elderly mom who lives 75 minutes away. Besides the driving, she may keep me quite busy with errands, etc. - or not.
What about you, TRUEPEACENIK?
