But they’re not “off” days. And they’re certainly not major “cheat” days when it coms to eating.
Though I wont do a full-out go-to-the-gym workout on the weekends, I’ll do something: stretch, maybe do some core work at home, or a short break-a-sweat stint on my home stair-climber.
During the spring, summer and fall, I play golf on the weekends, and if my knees aren’t whining, I’ll always walk the 18. I play on a hilly course, so believe me it’s no walk on the beach (though those are also good for your feet, ankles etc)
As for eating, I am less restrictive than I try to be during the week. I allow myself to eat dessert and I’ll enjoy whatever is available – even pizza.
Smaller slices of dessert and sensible portions allow me to survive the weekend without walking up Monday feeling like a fat slug.
So enjoy your weekends–or whenever you take your “rest” days. But don’t enjoy them too much!
