Welcome Weekdays

Sometimes I really do welcome Mondays with open arms.


Hello Monday! (Picture from FluffyPaw.com)

I adore my weekends, but my balanced eating can often fall to the wayside when I’m surrounded by tempting, sugary treats (ice cream!) on Friday night, Saturday and Sunday.

Do you have a harder time making healthy decisions on the weekend?

During the week I have a routine and eat around the same time every day (9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 4 p.m., 7 p.m.). My weekends are all over the place. I also prefer eating smaller meals throughout the day as opposed to the typical three-square meals. Hanging out with friends and family on weekends can make my mini-meals seem inconvenient, so I often opt for three large meals, but still eat some larger snacks as well. I just loooove to eat!

For some reason my vegetable intake also seems to plummet on the weekends. Somethin’ to work on, I guess!

Today I’m ready for healthy eating! Veggies, fruits and vitamin-rich foods (unlike the bag of butter popcorn with chocolate chips that I enjoyed yesterday 😉 are in my future.

Breakfast started with a toasted sweet wheat Alternative Bagel topped with creamy peanut butter.


Peanut Butter Bagel

I think this is a better choice than the two large chocolate-covered almond biscotti cookies I had yesterday, right? 😉

This peanut butter lover thoroughly enjoyed this breakfast.

Sick Fiance

Poor Ryan is home sick today. 😦 He is coughing up a storm and has quite the runny nose. He’s the go-to finance guy in the wedding-planning process and I think all the number crunching from this weekend may have taken a toll on him. 😉

I’m thinking I may make homemade chicken soup for dinner today for the sick patient. I love homemade soup and we have some chicken breasts just waiting to be prepared in the fridge.

Please send healthy thoughts Ryan’s way today!
