How did your weekend go? Did you have that feeling of ‘no line on the horizon,’ where the weekdays are just melting into the weekends. Many of us are good at building an eating routine when we have a structure to our day. However, what happens to this routine when our daily structure changes aren’t always positive. Weekends can be a dangerous time when you are trying to manage your weight. This is especially so since lockdowns were introduced back in March 2020. There is the reward aspect of working hard all week and ‘deserving’ that takeaway or slice of cake. Those of us that are not furloughed /on temporary or now long-term leave, would admit to working longer hours. As a result of working longer hours, the anticipatory feelings of reward are heightened. I work hard. I deserve. A reward. Also, the lockdown pulls at you in other ways too; like being distracted by your children’s natural demands which prevents you from being focused the same way you would during the week. Therefore, it is vital to establish an eating routine regardless of what your day entails. Here are some tips to help you to manage your weight even during the weekend.
