Which Day Is Hardest For You to Stay on Track?

We are midway through the week, which hopefully gives us all a clear perspective on our seven day health cycle. Early in the week, I generally find it easier to motivate to work out, pack healthy lunches, and make well-balanced dinners. Towards the end of the week, my healthy habits start to wane, and by the weekend I can easily steer well off track with social engagements and fixing up my house (painting, pizza, and beer go together perfectly). What about you?

Which day do you find is hardest for you to stay on track?

Whatever day is longest for me. On a day where I have nothing planned, it's easy to eat 1200 cals, but on a day where I have class from 8am to 4:45... I get ravenous!! I don't know what to do!

Saturdays, because I work out a lot and find it hard not to use that as an excuse to overeat.

As for me, on the days I'm PMS-ing. I get a certain fatigue (it doesn't matter how much I slept the night before), and mental fogginess. It's a very distinct experience I have, and it's unmistakable. Trying to muster the initiative to exercise, and getting through a workout is hard. On my PMS days, when I exercise, I most certainly bring it down a notch. My workouts are less intense (but it's harder for me). But I am dedicated to my exercise habit, so I get through it. After every workout, though, I do feel better. My PMS is less severe, and I'm always glad I exercised. I look forward to menopause. :)

For me, Sundays are really hard because I don't usually work out and my husband's home and tempts me with all kinds of horrible snack foods.

Friday is worst, but usually moreso because of limited time than because of overindulgence. That's not so bad, I think.

My husband works Saturday through Wednesday, so Thursdays and Fridays when he's home are the hardest to stay on track!

Mid week, sometimes. It's exhuasting to get up early and run, then swim after work ...

I'm really good on the weekends because I have more time to workout without feeling rushed, and can usually even get two workouts in on those days. And since I'm not relegated to an hour lunch period, I usually can cook something a lot healthier. But ugh...Mondays...I usually just want to go home, order pizza, and watch tv.

Thursdays and Fridays for me! I wake up at 5:30 during the work week to get an hour to hour and half workout in before I head to work. I usually end up staying late at work and after a 9 or 10 hour day, I come home and do yoga to relax before going to bed. Towards the end of the week, I'm so tired from the long work days that I just want to hit snooze on my alarm. It's so easy to do that too knowing that I can always put in a two hour workout in on the weekend days. It's definitely a struggle for me at the end of the week to keep my workout on track.

The weekend, but especially Sunday because it is the one day I never work and often feel like just lazing around, and eating-eating-eating instead of going to work out.

I only have a problem when I am out of town and with other people. When I am at home I make sure to schedule everything properly and make time for the gym and have healthy food in the fridge so if I do get off track it isn't for long. When I am out of town though my schedule is all screwed up and I eat differently then everyone else I know so I always get overruled when it comes to where we eat and what we do plus I don't really want to be a pain in the ass so I try to go with the flow.

Definitely weekends, I'm better able to keep myself on track during the week because I'm busy at work. There's more downtime during the weekends and we tend to be out and about so it's harder to eat something healthy when there's so much temptation.

Weekends are always harder bc I go out to brunch with friends on Saturdays and out to eat on Sunday after church. I try to do longer cardio sessions though since I have more free time.

Definitely the weekend . Shopping and running around sometimes it hard to find a health lunch.

The weekends are definitely harder because drinks with friends or backyard barbecues are where I have no will power.
