Club Half As Small As You: Week 16

February 9, 2009 7:00 am

Welcome to week 16 of the HASAY challenge! Not sure what HASAY is? Read all about it here. I’m sure you’re all dying to know about my HASAY status and even if  you’re not, I’m going to spill it. My Wii Fit got here this week and was a complete asshole to me. Within moments of meeting, he told me I was a fatass and suggested that I’m 49, which is an 18 year difference in my age. Mr. Wii is lucky I didn’t throw his ass in the pool. I stepped back on the next night and although he still thought I was a fatass, he calculated my age as 38 so he was only 7 years off. I’ll keep working on bringing the number down so that I can grow to love that little Wii bastard.

Today’s guest poster is Carrie from Colepack. Carrie is one of the HASAYers who actually sticks to the program and keeps up with the exercise by running her ass off and competing in marathons and stuff. She’s our own little HASAY Forrest Gump. I’m proud to have her on our team, even if she does make me look bad.

What the hell was I thinking 3 months or so ago agreeing to guest post for Casey. I have been thinking (unsuccessfully) about a topic for a week now. I am thinking I need a little Blog-Viagra because I got nothing…….. dead as a door knob with no lift.

So, in the spirit of a fellow blogger (Captain Dumb Ass) I am just going to ramble to see what spews out and decide at the end if I should go back and edit it. Since many of you already know me, the bar is set pretty low ; ) Do not get your hopes up.

I struggled with topics like……. write about my HASAY history (boring) or write and give the readers inspiration (cheesy) or write about………………….. give me a minute……………….

A few hours later……………….

Yep, I am back with a possible idea…………… Rewards…….

Lets face it, we are all a bunch of pre-schoolers who both need ascertainable rewards within a short period of time. Try telling a kid if they are good for the month they get a piece of candy. Um, not going to work. So, I employed my own reward system based on “Kaizen”.

Kaizen mean to improve continuously and I say, as long as you are doing that, reward yourself.
Whether it is a CD, a new shirt or a pizza, set small 2 week goals of “Kaizen” and go for it by setting the goal 2 weeks prior. Get away from saying “If I loose 3 pounds this week, I will……”. Dude, Kaizen it!!! As long as there
is improvement, roll with it.

So, I have a HUGE reward coming. One I have thought about for years and always attached it to outrageous, never to be meet, goals (probably on purpose). Well, “kiss it” I say and I attached it to an ascertainable goal about 2 months ago. Goal – run a ½ marathon with no walking.

Reward – What? You ask what it is?? Yeah right, I am not going to tell you until I meet my goal and ascertain my reward. It will jinx it. WHEN, I make my goal, I will share it in my craptastic way on my blog.

GO KAIZEN!

    Good luck with the Wii – sounds like it deserve to be stomped on a bit.

    Funny, you’re “attainable” goal is on my list of “yeah freaking right, dream on, crazy person” goals I’ve set for myself. Good luck!

    I’m all about the rewards! I have to plan mini-rewards for the baby steps (every 5 pounds) and a little bit bigger rewards for the 10 pounds marks and I can’t even let myself think about the 40 pound goal reward. Hell, I might just buy myself a new car.

    And my Wii avatar is a fatass too.

    I seriously loathe my Wii Fit now. I avoid it most sincerely and instead do my own workout. I hate that it calls me fat and that my Mii looks like a Hobbit. Darn that thing!

    My Wii Fit is an ass too. He moans everytime I weigh in. WTH? I am obviously on there to loose weight. Do you need to make me feel even worse!!

    The Wii Fit is not my friend either. Would it be wrong to reward myself for giving that obnoxious Wii Fit a snub? That’s not exactly a goal though, more like a coincidence. Great idea though. Running 1/2 a marathon is amazing.
