Throughout the course of a week, categories on Pinterest see popularity rise and fall. When Pinterest analyzed what users were Pinning on each day of the week, they found that the week begins with good intentions and ends with food.

Here are the most popular categories for each day of the week:

Monday: overindulgence is rectified by good intentions as the fitness category proves to be the most popular at the start of the working week

Tuesday: Technology takes the limelight

Wednesday: Getting over the hump-day of the week is helped by an increase in the inspirational quotes category.

Thursday: Thoughts turn to the weekend and shopping with fashion the most popular category.

Friday: The end of the week is the day for funny Pins with humor being the most popular category and, according to Pinterest, the fastest-growing category aided by the addition of GIF pins five months ago.

Saturday: Pinners are thinking about vacations and getting away from it all with travel the most popular category.

Sunday: Food and craft ideas accompany a lazy Sunday.
