Saving Calories on the Weekend — What's Your Strategy?

How Do You Save Calories on the Weekend?

Weekends are relaxing in more ways than one — you can pick and choose what you want to do, and your schedule is often a lot less rigid than the grind of the week. Whether that means a longer workout or time to catch up on your favorite shows, you often have time to do more of what you want to do.

Sometimes, the free-flowing weekend can also mean a less-strict diet or exercise plan. But even if you feel like you are indulging more on the weekends than you would during the rest of the week, do you pay attention to burning and saving calories, or would you rather not think about them when you're off-duty?

I do longer work-outs on the weekends, and I've made the decision to get off the weekly brunch wagon. Between the bloody mary's and the high calorie meals, it's not worth it to me. I'd rather go out to a nice dinner later.

I stay active on the weekends. I love going to yoga classes or to the gym. I feel like I have more time to work out and I'm not as rushed, so I work out for longer. That being said, I do indulge...usually one day a week I'm a little looser with my food choices, and it tends to be on the weekends.

I stay active. i generally work 7 days a week, but my weekends are strange hours, so I usually feel like I have more time to work out (like today, Saturday, I don't go in to work until 4:30pm and I've been up since 7am, so I ran 4 miles then did a half hour of kettlebell already and its only 11am!)
