Coming back from 3-day weekends can be tough! I think sometimes, despite the joy that holiday weekends bring us, 4-day weeks make it difficult to get going, and to start the week off on a good healthy foot. Things tend to be a little bit busier, and its not always easy to recover from the extra weekend day (when it comes to diet or exercise). I think one of the hardest things to do after an extra day off the diet or routine, is to not allow yourself to take another couple days off. It’s easy to keep pushing off the run or the grocery shopping, but I am here to remind you not to!

Sometimes we fall off the wagon, we eat a cheeseburger. I think we too often feel like we’ve failed once the fries in our lips. That’s where we’re wrong. It’s the avalanche after the french fries that messes us up. It’s the “oh, I’ve already been bad today, so I might as well take this opportunity to be terrible for the rest of the day.” It’s OK to have a cheat meal, or to make a mistake an over-indulge. We all need a little help making sure that cheat meal doesn’t turn into a cheat day, or a cheat weekend, or a cheat-forever. So we had an extra day of weekend bliss, and now we need to be careful not to throw away the rest of the week. Get back up, brush the crumbs off, and hit the treadmill! Make the most out of this 4-day week! Weigh-In Wednesday comes that much faster when there is no Monday…
