Any of these sound familiar? If so, you may be undoing all your good (weekday) work.
1. Your food log is inconsistent. For three weeks, document your meals and snacks, water intake, and energy levels every day. Then compare your weekday stats with your weekend ones. Any evidence that you relax your food rules during days off? Try writing yourself a menu in advance for the full week to take out the weekend guesswork.
2. You don’t mark up your calendar. If you don’t keep track, you may not realize how much you dine out and drink on the weekends. Insert your full weekend schedule into your smartphone calendar so you know where you’ll be for each meal, plus when you’ll need snacks. “Sometimes we actually have to write these things down to get them done,” says Taub-Dix.
3. You feel like crap on Monday. Using your food and energy log, assess your state on Mondays. Do you start the week groggy? Bloated? Headachy? “Coming off a bender will not have you entering Monday at 100 percent,” says Perkins. Then suss out whether you’re partying too much, skipping vital nutrients, or in need of a yoga class.
