FUTILE. VAIN. FRUITLESS. Those are the three words that sum up my efforts during my first week in the HASAY challenge. Nice words, no? Maybe they wouldn't sting so much if they were describing my attempts at something that didn't matter all that much to me - like changing the oil on my car. Unfortunately, they do describe my weight loss efforts this week and that sucks because I was hoping to do better than I did -but I just couldn't keep my dang mouth shut! Every time I turned around I was shoveling big 'ol handfuls of Pirate Booty, or spoonfuls of delicious apple pie or Rocky Road ice cream right smack into my gaping pie-hole. Nice mental picture.
So, yes I exercised some this week but my crappy eating reversed any good the exercise might have done. I took a couple of long walks, had an early morning romp with Bob Harper and his Cardio Max DVD - but it was all in vain. All in vain. In the end all I did was cancel out the bad eating I did all week because I sure didn't lose any wieght.
So right here, right now I am vowing to do better -to keep my mouth shut and my ass moving (except on Thanksgiving Day when the only thing moving will be the fork going from my plate to my mouth)
And before I go I just want to says thanks to all of you awesome gals out there in HASAY-land for being so welcoming, funny and encouraging. Knowing that you are all fighting your fight too will keep me motivated to do better.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
