Memorial Weekend

Thursday, May 22, 2008

Good Afternoon,
So the Memorial Weekend is upon us, and this year is diffrent. You made the commitment to change your lifestyle.
But................ and I do mean But.....What do you do on this well known holiday known for Barbecues, Sweet Indulges and lots of Starches??

I know that during the week, you eat right, exercise till the cows come home, drink tons of water, play with your kids, than all of a sudden your faced with Burgers, Ribs, Brats, OHHH MY!!!

What's a person to do??

So let's take a moment to remember where we started and focus on where you want to be. Yes it's a holiday, and yes I would love to really cheat, but what about all that hard work you been doing?
Do you really want to throw it all away for a slab of ribs and Potato salad???

Don't cheat yourself
Make smart, healthy choices

You can do it!!

    Thank you for posting that! Yes, we all do need to keep in mind that we are working so hard to achieve our goals that we should not let one holiday weekend ruin it for us. Thanks!

    That is a good reminder. My husband just went and bought a new grill today. I want some grilled fish! YUM!! I have fresh veggies that I bought and put in the freezer this past weekend when I got home from my mother's. The only thing I need from the store is my fruit and I will be set. And I am going to be working in the yard instead of being cooped up in the house. Just bought a new cookbook, the 4 ingredient cookbook! Can't wait to try some of their recipes. It is from the ADA. We will be just a grillin' away!! emoticon

    Thanks for the motivation. We are going camping this weekend, but I just got back from doing the shopping for the trip. I have loaded up on fresh fruits and veggies which I love so I am hoping that the kids will eat their junk instead of mine. LOL They seem to like my snacks more than theirs, which if I didn't buy their snacks they would complain that I had nothing to eat for them. So we will see if so then I guess back to the store for me.
