"Am I being a weekend Warrior?"

At my last WW's meeting, something was said that I will never forget (along this journey of losing weight and getting healthy).

"This weekend, try and be a Weekend Warrior"

What does this mean?
Most people and including me in the past... cheats like crazy on the weekends (when it comes to food). There are parties, family outings and so much more. It's almost as if we/I can't get away from food. It's no wonder why I did so bad in the past. At the meeting we talking about "keeping up your normal weekly routine".

  • Get up early and have a healthy breakfast 
  • Workout first thing
  • make sure you don't over eat
  • don't have sweets if you didn't workout
All weekend long I have thought to myself "Am I being a weekend Warrior?" 
This thought has kept we out of "food trouble" and on track for the past two days. 
So next weekend when you are choosing what to eat, ask yourself this simple little question.
And MOST important...be honest with yourself. You are only cheating yourself.

One more thing before I go. I haven't posted my new motivation for the week, so here it is...

I want to be able to do cartwheels again.
I stopped doing them about 5 years ago, when I first started putting on the weight. 
I'm sad I can't do them anymore. One of these days soon ....I will conquer this! 
You watch and see!

Oh and here is what I got when I hit my 5% weight loss :)
It's totally cheesy, but I LOVE that star! I worked so hard for it.
I'm now working on the 10%, which is 31 lbs.
Happy Monday everyone.

Keep going!! I know you can do it!! Great job, Heidi!
Thanks for the comment on my blog. We do get out as much as possible doing the simple things. Greg works a lot of hours, so it is in small snippets of time, but it is often. I love that the kids don't expect much and are completely content with trips to the park and bike rides, etc. Simple things. They mean more anyway, I think. This weekend, it was apple picking and walking through a few model homes (Parade of Homes is going on right now here) on the way home. My kids love walking through model homes. LOL
