CLUB HASAY Update - Making Serious Sacrifices, Sweating Profusely


I'm feeling extremely self righteous this week because I passed up an opportunity to see one of my favorite authors, David Sedaris, in favour of going with Daring Daughter to swim exercise class. How committed is that?!

Also, I was on my feet continuously all Friday night, running back and forth at the Eighth Grade Eighties party, making sure volunteers were well hydrated. Their gratitude at my presentation of cold bottles of water was quite genuine, because it was HOT in that school. I'll bet I lost 3 pounds just from all the sweat dripping off of me.

I may get brave enough to step on the scale this week to confirm that supposition. Meanwhile, I'm planning walks with friends and healthy meals each day.

Wow; that IS dedication. My body pump classes are held during the lunch hour, so it severely affects my lunching-with-friends and going-to-London-for-the-day opportunities.

Obviously not sustainable in the long-term . . .!

Nice job with the water there, Mom.

Keep up the good work! I don't think I could have passed up David Sedaris for anything. Well, except that long drive in to Atlanta which is what kept me from seeing him when he was here in April.

Wow, that is dedication at it's finest! I'm impressed...

Now keep it up and make us proud.

The Sedaris sacrifice was huge but your girl is definitely worth it.

(I love walking too. Give me a holler sometime.)

Healthy way of life - that's what I am trying to apply in my life right now. Not always easy! :-)

I am an avid reader. It's almost an affliction lol But I haven't read Sedaris. I always fall for any new author I come across. What would be your choice of a first book to read from Sedaris?
Thanks in advance for your advice! :-)
