Week 10 update - Dusting of the HASAY cobwebs -
If you read my last post you'll notice that I thought last week was week 10 of the HASAY challenge. I guess it's this week though. That should give you some idea of how lost in space I have been the last couple of weeks.
Seriously - since Dec 15th, I have been holed up in my house with nothing but time on my hands and I chose to fill that time by filling my hands with enough junk food to last me for a year. I was stressed and bored and stressed and bored some more - and that's a combination for disaster for me when I'm trying to watch my diet.
The weather didn't help either - I couldn't get out to the gym or go for a walk. The best I could do was pull Captain Crazy around the block on the sled or build a snowman - but at least that was something.
It also didn't help that Daney Pops - (that's what I call him most of the time) was sick. I didn't want to take him out in the cold at all for fear of making his cold worse. So I didn't, but his cold got worse anyway. More on that later.
I do have to say that I am starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Christmas is over, the holiday sweets and treats have slowed to merely a trickle, and I am back to work today. It's the beginning of "getting back to normal" for everyone, and it feels good.
I am looking forward to getting back on the HASAY wagon. I borrowed some Pilates videos from my neighbor and I'm going to get re-acquainted with the Elliptical starting tomorrow at 5 am.
In the meantime, I thought I would toss up some pics of the snow and ice that kept us hostage in our house for so long. I wanted to post these pics last week, but dial up is not nice to use when trying to upload pictures or anything bigger than a digital fart.
