HASAY Update week 7 - Turkey and a Thanksgiving F-Bomb

Hello all you HASAYERS! I hope your Thanksgiving week was safe, happy and relatively productive on the weight-loss front.

My Thanksgiving week was very nice, thank you for asking. It had all the usual stuff you would expect of a Thanksgiving week - copious amounts of good food and wine, lots of visiting with friends and family, some exercise here and there, and a preschooler who dropped his first F-Bomb like a seasoned pro. Yes-sir-ree Bob! Everything you could ever want! Our son just matter of factly said, "Daddy, I have to "F'n" poop!" Now I think that's pretty "f'n" funny myself, but my husband doesn't dig cursing too much. He immediately shot me the 'ol stink eye and asked "And where do you think he got that from?" "Not me" I said innocently. I don't think he believed me, but he should have because I don't cuss like that in front of my kids. I save it for the car (when they're not in it) and for those mornings when I stumble down the hall at 4:30 am on my way to the gym and almost maim myself by stepping on a Leg-O or Matchbox car.

As the week rolled to an end, my husband recovered from the "f-bomb incident" enough to laugh when he thought about it, and I was able to get myself out the door for several long walks and some trips to the gym. All said and done, I didn't gain any weight this week and I think that's commendable seeing as how I ate enough for two people on several occasions. However, if I can manage the same amount of exercise this coming week and keep my trap shut a little more, then I might actually see some progress. To help me along, I have started using a calorie-counting website called caloriecount.about.com. It's pretty cool and would be very helpful to anyone who is interested in an easy, fast way to track their caloric intake.

That's all for now - have a happy Monday.

Hi Leslie...

That is hysterical about your toddler dropping the F-bomb...how on earth could he have figured out how to drop the F-Bomb in a sentence like that? FUNNY Stuff!

Also glad to hear you were able to get to the gym this past weekend...keep up the great work!

The F-bomb from a preschooler? I would have died laughing!
Calorie count is a good one. My shrunken husband likes thedailyplate.com

Woah, he used the F bomb in context, that's even more impressive! I try not to say it around my kids but it's hard, considering my potty mouth. And in the car, I can't be held responsible for anything that comes out of my mouth...
I'm glad you're keeping up with the exercise, I haven't done that since we're all still plague-ridden at my house. Good luck this week, I'm sure the weight will come off if you stop eating Thanksgiving dinner and drinking wine. You've got that covered, right?

Congrats on a weight-gain-less turkey weekend! Woo hoo! I think that should totally count as actually LOSING weight.

Our three-year-old has dropped the F-bomb, but doesn't seem to cuss in her mother's native tongue yet. I guess that means I'm the bad one, heh. ;)
