Do as I say, not as I do. Club HASAY update...

It's no secret that I had a helluva week this week. Seriously Daddy (can I just call him Russ?) I hate typing Seriously Daddy, it's a bit obnoxious don't you think? Anyway, Russ was traveling this week which meant I was single parenting the L's. I seriously wasn't cut from the single parent mold and anyone who can do it is an absolute hero in my book. Raising kids is hard and raising kids without any help, next to impossible.


Along with battleing colds, we also had a few visits from my invisible man friend. That alone threw this entire house into a tizzy and made my nights impossible. Picture me on the couch with the little-er of the L's asleep on my shoulder because that's the only way she could breathe, the bigger of the L's feet jabbing me in the ribs because there is no way he was going back into his bedroom. Ernie pacing the house growling and Frankie doing what Frankie does best. Snoring and farting. And believe me, she's really good at that.


Weight Watchers and Club HASAY took a back seat to life this week. I'm not proud of it but sometimes it's hard not to let life get in the way. I wouldn't say that I spun out of control but I did end up with a .8 pound gain tonight. Ugh. That's a hard one to say.


Back on the wagon kids. I have to. I need to. I will. Back to the exercise, back to the food tracking, back to the reality of healthy living. It takes work and it won't work if you don't put in a little effort!


Feel free to beat me senseless with comments beacause I really wanna be a...

I'm so freaked out by your ghosts and I don't even live there!! Will you be writing about it this weekend? I ask because I'm going to be home alone with just the kids for the bulk of the weekend, and that's enough stress on me!

You're on a great track with the weight loss efforts. That gain will be a distant memory next week!

You didn't sleep, your man was gone, your kids were sick and you were being haunted. Cut yourself some slack this week.

Besides, in your comment you said you ran 6 miles. That makes my 2.5 miles look wussy (it was a fast and hilly 2.5. Does that count for anything?). :)

Glad life is returning to normal.

When I first read this, I thought you gained 8lbs so .8 is NOTHING. I know, I'm the warden and I'm telling you it's ok that you gained weight but I fell off the Halloween candy wagon big time yesterday so I have zero room to talk. Now get to the gym!

Dee - I am so back on the wagon! Only one Almond Joy mini last night and that's it!

Joe - My 6 mile run (read:jog) was all about endurance and not performance! You have me beat if you ran up hill and fast! ;-)

Casey - No girl, not 8 pounds. OMG, I would kill myself! I'm heading down to the treadmill now...

Thanks for the encouragement everyone. I really want to be in the best physical shape possible for August. Then maybe I won't die and actually finish this triathlon!
