Club Half As Small As You: Month 18

March 1, 2010 12:41 am

Welcome to month 18 of Club HASAY! Not sure what HASAY is? Read all about it here.


I recently made the decision to go to BlogHer this summer in NYC. Location, location, location.. that and the fact that I’m going to meet a few of my favorite peeps in person made the trip a no brainer. When I hit submit and secured my airfare, a whole new form of motivation kicked in. I have to drop some poundage before I’m face to face with my bloggy pals. I will no longer have a computer to hide behind.

When I told Jamie about my new found motivation, he suggested I take the opposite route and try to beef up. “Just think, if you get up to 400 lbs this year, you can totally drop that and show up next year all thin and people will be like.. woah!!!”. Although I like the way that man thinks, I’m going with the so called “healthy” route and hitting the gym.

A good friend of mine has been trying to persuade me to join her gym. She goes to an all-women gym and loves it but I’m already paying for my membership at the YMCA. Since the kids go to the preschool there, I have to pay for the gym membership regardless. I haven’t been going though. At all. My standard excuses of kids not sleeping and gym overcrowding were quelling the guilty feelings somewhat but they were still there. My kids don’t sleep and it’s doubtful that they will anytime soon. The gym isn’t going to get any less crowded if I stop going for awhile. So, I joined and now I belong to TWO gyms. If that’s not enough to make someone skinny, I don’t know what is.

This morning after I drop the kids off at school, I will be meeting my friend for my first workout in some time. I made her promise to make me keep going and I’m hoping she holds up her end of the bargain. I guess you’ll see if the plan works if I run into you this year at BlogHer. Are you guys doing anything different with your fitness plan? Beef up or slim down? Huh?



  1. ck

    So you’re really going, huh? You’re tempting me to reconsider…

  2. Lin

    Crap! You’re going to NYC without me??!! What??! I absolutely LOVE NYC!!! You had me thinking about joining you until I remembered the 4 billion places my money has to be come May and I had to unpack my mental suitcase. Bummer. Who the hell cares what you weigh–just go and have fun!!! And have some fun for me too while you are at it. I’m officially jealous.

  3. Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

    I love the way your hubby thinks! BlogHer is only 4 more HASAY updates away (5 if you do one August 1st before you go) – that’s kind of scary when you think about it! Sorry, didn’t mean to freak you out – but you can do it! We’re talking 5 months of dedication…Go Casey, Go! 🙂 And I’ll be right there with you because while your hubby’s idea is oh so tempting, I’d rather go the healthy route, too. 😉

    And have I told you how PSYCHED I am that I’ll finally get to meet you in person at BlogHer? 😉

  4. Lisa @ Boondock Ramblings

    I wish I had the courage to go to BlogHer, but I totally don’t…or the money, but whatever…Anyhow, that is motivation and I say you do it your way and not Jamie’s way!

  5. Cat

    Dude. I cannot wait to meet you.

  6. Michele

    I’ve been faithfully go to the gym at least 4 times a week. Have I lost any weight? NO, Damnit! My clothes feel a little better so there is that. 🙁

  7. Sprite's Keeper

    You’ll do great, if only to show up the other skinnies going to BlogHer. If I was going this year, I would totally beef up so you can use me as a side by side comparison, but I’m not, so you’re on the right track. Go, Casey!

  8. Jenni

    Aww, we don’t care what your ass looks like at BlogHer, just that you are there.

    Can’t wait to have beers with you in August.

  9. Cara

    Kick ass, Casey.

  10. Twinsmama

    I agree, Kick ASS Casey! And remember everytime you go through Checkers drive thru the terrorists win!

  11. WickedStepMom

    Good luck starting the workout routine. The first step is the hardest! You can do it Casey!!!

  12. Ginny Marie

    If I were going to Blogher I should have gone last summer when it was in Chicago, seeing as how I live in the suburbs! I missed my chance, I guess.

    Is it too late to join HASAY? I totally need to exercise, and I’m working on a post that may or may not be up later today.

  13. Erin@TheLocalsLoveIt

    Getting there is half the battle.

    Good luck. You can do it.

    (I want to go to BlogHer- so jealous)

  14. Mrsbear

    You’ve got this in the bag. Especially now that the pressure is on.

    Oh it’s on.

    Jamie’s idea is innovative, but I don’t think it’s the right approach for you. 😉

    I’m back on the bandwagon, yo!

  15. Maureen@IslandRoar

    Aw, I’ll bet you look fine! but I get it, you’re not where you want to be. So go for it! I’m so tempted to go to BlogHer, but then I feel instantly shy. We all hide behind our blogs in some way,no?

  16. Pseudo

    If all goes well with the boy, I will have two children in college next year and no idea how to pay for them both.


    Would so love to go to NYC next summer and meet my blog friends. Take a lot of pics for us Casey.

  17. jessica

    YOu go girly. I can’t wait to meet your skinny self.

  18. Shangrila

    I don’t normally comment on your HASAY posts-I have too many issues *sigh* but I am all kinds of jealous that you’re going to BlogHer without me and while I think that Jamie’s suggestion is clever AND hilarious, I think that your choice to be healthy is the way to go! Wait-is health about joining more than one gym?! Hell-even I can do that-lol!

    P.S. If I were going to BlogHer, I wouldn’t give a damn what you weighed-I’d just be happy to see you! 🙂

  19. Bano

    I get to join the club next month–woot! I lost almost 30 lbs before I got preggers with Baby. Now I have to lose it all over again…plus about 15 more. Argh.

  20. Karen @ If I Could Escape

    Now don’t you be going and getting yourself in to trouble up there!! LOL Good for you!

  21. Lizgizzy

    Thanks for dropping by and commenting. I really can use the support. I cannot quit the sweets and it is killing me.
