How to Eat Healthy on the Weekend!
So you've been making some progress developing new healthy eating habits and feeling good about yourself this past week!
Meal prepping, packing your lunch for work, doing those healthy swaps, all that good stuff but there's one problem...the weekend is approaching!
It's great to have a break from the stressful work week but you know in the back of your head that from Friday evening through Sunday, all those new healthy habits you have been working on are going to come to an end. And you're afraid that all the momentum you have gained will be lost!
Because once the weekend hits it's like a free for all! You're not on your usual schedule, you don't have your food prepared like you do for the work week, and there's so many more opportunities to give into those cravings!
NOT SO FAST!!!
Don't be so fast to give in because there's a handful of helpful tips that I want to share with you to help you stay consistent with your healthy eating habits over the weekend!
I know this has always been one of the toughest things for me to conquer and I have been seeing a trend with some of the women I've been talking to lately as well.
They're making good progress during the week and feeling awesome but as soon as the weekend hits, everything seems to fall apart.
I figured you may be in the same boat so I wanted to share the tips that I have been giving to my 1 on 1 coaching clients so that you can beat the weekend cravings too!
5 Tips to Stay Consistent on the Weekend!

1. Create a Weekend Routine!
It's easier to stay on track during the week days because you have a routine set in place. Wake up, eat breakfast, drive to work, eat your snack, lunch.....you get the point.
But on the weekends, you probably sleep in and just go with the flow instead of following your normal weekday routine. And that's the problem. The inconsistency starts first thing in the morning and it just snowballs through the day.
So this weekend try to follow your weekday schedule a little more. Eat breakfast, then make sure you have your lunch prepared, schedule your workout time, then plan ahead for dinner so you can make some healthy choices!
Your weekend routine doesn't have to be exactly the same as your work day but make sure it's something that is easy to stick to!
2. Prepare a Healthy Dessert!
This is something that I teach my 1 on 1 coaching clients and their feedback tells me that it really helps them stay consistent to eating healthy. Especially on the weekends!
Find a recipe for a healthy dessert that you love then make a big batch and portion it out! That way you can grab a serving when you're feeling the cravings. (Notice I said 1 serving ;))
This is also super helpful when there's tons or treats around but you'll have your healthy dessert to fall back on. Pssst....you can find lots of those healthy desserts over on my recipes page!
3. Pick Healthier Options when Eating Out!
Here are the two tips that I always suggest for choosing healthy options when eating out!
First, take a look at the menu online before you go. You can pick a few options so you're not rushed and pick something unhealthy because you're feeling pressured at the restaurant.
Second, don't be afraid to ask questions about how the meal is prepared and what ingredients are used. If you explain that you have certain restrictions, servers are usually very happy to help.
Picking something healthy wont only help you reach your goals, but help you feel better overall. It's fun to find healthy restaurants in your area to explore!
4. Be Active on the Weekend!
I know laying around on the couch all weekend is super nice some times but I want to encourage you to walk, hike, ride your bike, or get your 30 minute workouts in
Saturday and Sunday. Here's one to try!
You may not realize it, but when you sit around and watch Netflix all day you're a lot more likely to be snacking through out the day and that adds up to a lot of unnecessary processed calories!
So not only will some exercise burn calories but it will also make you feel motivated and confident so you save yourself from sitting around and munching all day!
5. Dig Deep into WHY You aren't Consistent!
Why do you fall off track during the weekend? Really think about it...
- Is it because the diet you are on is unsustainable?
- Is it because you don't know what's healthy and what's not?
- Is it because you don't have someone to hold you accountable?
All of these things are true for my clients when they start working with me. When I ask them these questions, something clicks and they start to realize the root cause for not reaching their goals!
I teach you how to break the "restrictive diet" mentality, how to find real healthy and holistic food choices, and I'm there to hold you accountable while you develop these new habits!
So if you're ready to really dig deep and address the root cause issues that are keeping you from reaching your goals, then I want you to click the link below and answer a few quick questions so I can learn more about you and your goals!
I hope to talk to you soon love! And as always, if you have a questions just shoot me an email or DM on the Gram (@brittanymuchko
