HASAY Smashay: The Update

Oh HASAY I’ve been so bad.  It’s Monday and for those not in the know that means it’s HASAY truth time.  HASAY is this little internet club anyone can join to help you stay motivated and on the path to a healthy eating and exercising life.  Just click the HASAY guy in my sidebar if you care to join in or shout general encouragement (or heckling if you really want to) at those of us making the attempt at healthy living.
The Update:  I’ve let HASAY down.  I’ve let myself down.  The mojo motivation up and disappeared this week.  The first week I was Wahoo!  Alright!  I’m so great!  And now I sit on the couch and watch my kid do the yoga I taught him for us to do together.  And later I watch the Bourne series while eating leibniz with peanut butter and nutella.  Yeah, there’s an issue there I’m choosing not to look closely at.

I don’t know why I’m not feeling motivated (okay I do but I’m not feeling like sharing).  I actually really enjoy yoga and running.  The running is a bit weird as I find it really hard to breathe correctly but yet I love it.  Yoga is relaxing and good for the mind and body as I already know.  
So why can’t I get it together and actually do it?  No idea.  Even the thought of swimsuit season doesn’t scare me.  I will only need to wear a swimsuit for the three days we’ll be at the beach in NJ this summer and that’s it.

But a lot of the other HASAYer’s have been kicking butt and taking numbers so I’ll let them sweep me along and get back on the right track.  You can visit Casey at Half As Good As You and offer up some encouragement (but please yell at me here first alright?)

  1. Oh Andrea, I’m sorry to be laughing, but your post is really funny! Keeping up with our goals for our health and exercise is so much harder as parents/adults than it was when we were in college. I give in way too easily to distractions, my acceptance of status quo, my need for moments to be lazy. But there are highs and lows with it, too. So hopefully this week will be a high one for you 🙂

  2. Listen YOU, get your ass running, right NOW! Was that the yelling you were looking for?Get back on the HASAY wagon this instant. If you’ve got bikini plans coming up, you don’t have much time to waste. It would take me a year of hard core exercise to even think about thinking about putting on a bikini.Make me proud this week. 😉

  4. Uh, potentially you’re so scared of the bikini thing that you’re self-sabotaging? Because that’s what I would be doing. In fact, I’m so scared of YOUR bikini thing that I’m thinking about having a brick of cream cheese for breakfast right now.So please, go work out so I don’t do that, okay?

  6. My running breathing tip is this: breathe out for 4 steps, then breathe in for 2 steps. Focus on that rhythm until you don’t have to think about it.The person in a bag pic is pretty darn funny.

  7. I loved the “bag” picture. I’m still laughing. I’m trying to get summer fit for a trip to see my son graduate from the Army in June. It’s soo hard. But stay focused and you’ll do it.
