So, this isn't so much a HASAY update as a refined plan, because I was stuck at the inlaws all last week. And I totally got a pass from Casey for that. And, to be honest, I wasn't THAT bad. Unless you count the massive Christmas dinner and the whipping cream in my daily cup(s) of coffee because everyone else drinks it black and that's all they had.
Okay, okay, you're right. I should probably count that.
I've decided that there just isn't any way I'm going to stick to the Weight Watchers thing this time around. It's just TOO MUCH WORK. And then there's the starving. I don't like that part. So I've created a new plan of attack, which I refer to as "The Gee It's Pretty Fucking Obvious But It's Not In A Book Anywhere So It Doesn't Feel Legitimate Somehow Plan".
(Henceforth just known as "The Plan").
Here's The Plan:
1. NO snacking.
2. ONE sweet or junky thing per day (but the sweet is my weakness so that's what I'll focus on). It can be sugar in my coffee or a big honking piece of cheesecake, but if I already put sugar in my coffee that morning, no cheesecake for me!
3. GO TO THE GYM. But even before that, try to work out with friends, because I'm far more likely to follow through if someone's expecting me to show up. *
See? Not hard. I could write a book.
It just wouldn't be very long.
What worked for me last time was to reward myself at milestones. I got myself things that I probably would have bought anyway, but this way I could feel all virtuous about it. You know, like for sticking to the Plan for two weeks I get new workout gear, for losing 5 lbs I get a new laptop bag. For hitting my goal I get a new pair of Sevens.
I should get something just for coming up with this plan in the first place, now that I think about it.
Ah, retail therapy. A balm for my girthy soul.
*(Oh, and I think I'm going to do a six-week boot camp with my friend FoN. That may help).
