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.

Good luck getting back in the swing of it! That ice storm looks like it was brutal!

You have my sympathies on how a sick kid can keep you from doing ANYTHING, let alone exercise. There were recent days where I didn't even get to shower or brush my teeth. TMI? Sorry. Here's to a better HASAY week for all of us and you're right.. with no more holiday treats in sight, this should get easier.

Dial up? That would make ME drown my stress in food, too.

Wow, that was some storm. I don't think you would have survived without the junkfood. And if it's a matter or survival it's totally acceptable. Good luck getting back on the HASAY wagon.

I would never know what that's like to be stuck indoors like that, but I hope it warms up for you soon!

Wow! You were iced in pretty well there, yikes.

Glad things are getting back to normal. Go HASAY! And Happy New Year!
