HASAY is the brilliant online support group for struggling dieters and exercisers the world over.
Do you know what happens when you are 31 years old and take naps instead of working out for 2 weeks?
Do you know what happens when you take Paxil?
Do you know what happens when your friends, inspired by the summer heat, pour you refreshing, frozen adult beverages?
Do you know what happens when sadness overcomes you and you just figure that you might as well not exercise because who cares?
The answer: WEIGHT GAIN
Today, out of pity for my own mental health and the waist line of my summer wardrobe - I got back on the horse. Thankfully my food intake wasn't totally ruined - with the exception of adult beverages.
This was my wagon...
