Hi Julius - Alicia summed it up. And yes, the times follow PST. Starting at 3:00 am EST (Midnight PST) on January 29 (Tuesday), you can submit you final weight. If you meet your goal, then you submit two photos just like you did in the beginning.

You have until 11:59 pm PST on January 30 (Wednesday) to submit. After that, the window will close.

Julius

Thank you Alicia & Jen for the clarification and for answering my question!

Are weekends killing your weight loss? How can you stay on track over the weekend? I found a good article with great tips on how we can break that cycle.

1. It's how you eat during the week. If your diet is strict during the week (think chicken, brown rice, broccoli, etc.), then you're more likely to over-indulge in foods you don't normally eat over the weekend.

Fix: Eat better weekday food! There are so many great websites today that offer delicious recipes that are also healthy and calorie-friendly.

2. Plan time to work out. Working out during the week is easier because it becomes part of your routine. The weekend arrives and you just want to relax.

Fix: Schedule it! I find that when I work out, I am more inclined to "staying on track" with my food. Treat Saturday & Sunday like you would any Monday. But remember, rest is important, too.

3. Even better - make exercise fun! Get outside and enjoy nice weather (if the weather is nice where you are!). Go for a hike. Dance. Grab the family and go for a nice bike ride.

4. Prep meals ahead. Planning ahead is key because if you're out and about with no food/snacks on hand, then you're more likely to just grab something (that typically isn't the best option) just to satisfy that hunger.

Fix: plan ahead. Carry healthy snacks with you. Take water wherever you go.

5. It's always a mental game. Be filled with pride on Monday because you stayed on track.

Fix: Don't use food as a reward and exercise as a punishment. If you want a reward, try shifting your thinking to make that reward a massage, manicure, a new outfit, etc. Exercise shouldn't be a punishment either. Be proud of what your body can do now. Don't punish your body because you ate a donut.

Alicia - I wholeheartedly believe in a balanced life. For me, eating 100% clean is not a sustainable approach in the long term. And if I build in certain treats like a chocolate chip cookie, or even more indulgent macaroni and cheese (managing portions), I find that I can stay for the long run.

Try to think of it as a "treat meal" instead of a "cheat meal." You aren't doing anything wrong by having an indulgent food/meal once a week. You're finding a balance. And in the long run, that will be much more sustainable. So kudos to you!

Alicia R.

Ohhhh I LOVE the term “treat meal”—that sounds so much more accurate because you’re so right... I don’t feel guilty about having one meal a week where I eat what I want! And I completely agree with you about the importance of finding balance. Otherwise, you’ll end up overindulging when you do give yourself a break, and the weight you’ve lost will quickly be found again. (Been there, done that!)

Step challenge Tuesday!

I braved the cold temperatures and icy patches to get my steps in this morning. Hours later, I'm still trying to warm up!

How are you getting your steps in today?

Laps around my house because it’s too cold to walk outside! Lol

I’m at a conference and the site requires a lot of setups to get to meals and sessions. Then after the evening session I hit the gym to get the rest of my steps.
