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.

Weekends are tough because when I socialize with friends it usually involves food at some point. We all have weight issues (but get togethers are almost an 'excuse' to splurge)

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.

It's taken a really long time, but I have learned that a living a healthy lifestyle is a 24/7 commitment.

However, the days I might veer a little off the path are the week days when I'm working. It's those darned meeting leftovers. I'll admit it. it's hard to resist the call of free food.

If there are no leftovers. I'll eat my healthy lunch and snacks. Someone posts there is free food, and I'll walk over to see what's there.

What is good is that I have been getting better at walking past. Some of the leftovers aren't as good as others. I'm getting a little more discerning. LOL

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 workout everyday, and I try to eat healthy everyday, but it is harder on the weekends.

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.

Monday is hardest for me to leave my loving family and go back to work after spending quality time with them.

" 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?

Being home with little on my calendar can be hard

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

Which is harder to stick to your plans, weekends or weekdays? Why?
