I find it's easier to stick with my fitness and nutrition plan during times when my life is "routine." A regular schedule--wake up, work, workout, eat dinner, etc.--seems to make things easier.

Weekends, as a result, make things more difficult. So do holidays. Like yesterday.

Even the weather has interfered with my routine. The roads are too snowy for running... too much ice, not enough room on the shoulder. So I've had to bring my workouts inside. My runs are on the "dreadmill." It interferes with my mindset, I think. I just don't get the same thrill from a run.

Fortunately, the weekend and holiday are over. I am back on schedule today. Back to work. Back to the routine.

Now if only the snow would melt.

Routines do make a difference. Hope it gets better this week!

No kidding.. I could live my life without seeing snow again!! LOL

routine is what I live by now. I find that if I stray from it I end up confusing myself and instead of cleaning or excersizing I'm snacking and sittin in front of the tv!

Thanks for the comment. I think that this has actually given me a little more motivation to kick myself in the butt and keep going. Eventually I will find out what will work for my body!
