hasay ... clean slate small plate.

so yeah.

hasay again. (crazy, isn't it?? i haven't updated the hasay stuff in awhile.)

but now ... on mondays! i'm conforming to the rest of the group. i was feeling a little out of the loop, off the bandwagon ...

but i'm back. new year. and i'm starting over with a clean slate. week 11 ... is kinda like my week one.

(and i would just like to note ... over break ... i bought a pair of jeans two sizes smaller than my previous size. thank you very much. there was no way in hell i was gonna leave that store without them. i did not care how much they cost. lucky for me - and my bank account - $19.99 - but they were two ... TWO ... T!!!W!!!O!!! sizes smaller. so, it's not really like i've been slacking ... just slacking in the blogging about it department.)

so that's where we are.

and i'm planning on ... trying to find a wii (because i want to), using my elliptical more, eating salads for lunch and upping our fruits and vegetables. (i think we all need to eat healthier ... and i think i need to set the best example i can ... those girls are my mirror of self.) i'm allowing myself a cheat day (because i hope it will help me stay more focused the rest of the week). this week ... it's on my birthday (january 8th ... 32 ... ack!) and i'm working out ... EVERYDAY. no slacking there. too many excuses if i don't.

(and by the way ... even though i've slacked blogging about hasay ... casey had me guest post on her blog today! and i wrote a pathetic excuse for a guest post here. poetry is NOT my cup of tea. but i was desperate and had puking kids. and i already noticed a typo. argh. i meant - "hasn't" updated - note first line. blech. i should remember to edit at least once...)

oh yeah ... and the title. i've heard that using the smaller plate ... helps you to eat less. but i'm sure ALL of you ... knew that already. for me? anything is worth a shot ... right?

What?! TWO sizes smaller? Awesome! I think that is a free pass for slacking on HASAY blogging! Good for you--congrats! :)

I gained 7 pounds in the month of December. Oops! I am dreading getting back on the weight loss wagon. I love my Ben & Jerry's too much.

Two sizes! If that isn't motivation I don't know what is. Keep at it!

Dropping two sizes the last month of the year? Spec-freaking-tacular!

I have heard the same thing about using a smaller plate. Also? A glass of h2o and an apple half an hour before a meal helps, too.

Keep it up!

OMG! 2 sizes! - you are an inspiration! I am going to work my ass off two (litterally I hope) I am hoping to lose about 40lbs. maybe posting about my progress will keep me on track. A pre- happy birthday to you. I will be celebrating your birthday by participating in an Elvis movie night at my grandmother's house. - The 8th is also Elvis' b-day.
Enjoy!

Congrats, congrats, congrats!!!! Two sizes?? I'm so happy for you! Have fun with the Wii once you get it. I miss mine.

Casey said...

Your two sizes is motivating to me... congrats again! And your poem was NOT pathetic. It was great and you got lots of comments over here saying so. So there. I've tried the smaller plate thing and I ended up piling the food higher. Tricky!

Good luck this week, go HASAY!!!
