Club HASAY - I only had one smallish piece of birthday cake

She is a genius, and her cartoons are guaranteed to cheer up
even the most depressed person. At least, I think so!

So here's the deal - with my Amazing Son's birthday party planning and both kids' various musical concerts and a bunch of other stuff I can't remember right now, which is a shame, because it would make my excuse much more impressive and distract you from the fact that I haven't actually done anything this week, I need to confess that I haven't done doodly squat this week to move toward my goal. :-(

Casey's HASAY post observed

Just when I though HASAY was losing steam, we’ve had an influx of new members. Check out the member’s page to see who’s on board.

This makes me feel super guilty. I'm on board, alright. On the plank. I fear that all of those who have been working hard to get fit will kick me out. About the only thing I can say that I've done right this week is to limit myself to a small piece of cake to celebrate the birthday. That's something, I suppose. And I haven't drunk soda, just unsweetened iced tea. Tomorrow evening, I can go to the fitness center and swim because we (how on earth did this happen?!) don't have any commitments. And I can do it again on Thursday night. So, fellow HASAYers, don't give up on me yet, please!

I'm pulling for you, FF! Every day is a new start. In fact, each minute. Just because you might have not "been good" yesterday doesn't mean you can't do better today, right?

Good luck!

Don't worry, we won't kick you out in the first week! We talk a mean game but really we're all falling off and climbing back on the wagon every other week. Here's to a better week with some good results to share next time, m'kay?

Oh enjoy that swimming, I Can't even swim but I enjoy that not realising I've exercised after being in the water.
Thanks for the comment. I think you have to be signed into your blogger to comment? I've got it open to anyone?
Maybe if I use a pop out commenter? I'll follow you and that will help both ofus :)

Thanks, Lisa. I need all the encouragement I can get!

Casey - you are a kind soul indeed.

kyooty - you're right; being in the water makes it a whole lot easier. Thanks for following! I'm following you too. Who's leading?!

No worries. Shake this one off. Casey's good about forgiving, but not about forgetting...
You'll do fine, especially with all the walking tours you'll be fitting into your travels this summer, hmm? :-)

Keep climbing back up on the wagon! We're all old pros at that.

Swimming is great exercise, other than the "putting on a bathing suit" part...
