Claretta – Week 10

-0 poundsToo bad I’m not on a maintenance program because I’d love having not gained any weight this week.   Actually I hate that I didn’t lose anything this week but it was still a very good week! My BFF treated me and another friend to lunch last week.  I know she meant well when we decided to eat Italian food and I had already made up my mind that I’d have a Chicken Caesar’s Salad – no pasta would pass my lips!  That was all fine and good until the waitress brought us hot bread and garlic dip.  OMG!  This little fat Italian could not pass that up.  Fast forward to the weekend and the family went out for Mexican….too many chips and dip.  Oh well….onward and upward!  (Thanks Jan and Gary)

Gym news:  I was able to walk over 2 miles on the treadmill, at an incline and a good speed and keep my heart rate at the right place – all while reading my Kindle for 45 minutes!!  Now, I know this isn’t fabulous news to anyone but me, and I actually think I could have walked longer.  I’m going to stay at my 45 minutes this week and maybe even next just to make sure I’m not “over-doing” it.  I don’t want to wreck my knees again.

Our Aqua class instructor added some new things to our workout and I’m really enjoying that activity.  Haven’t had the opportunity to use my snorkel yet because I’m having trouble adjusting the headband…doesn’t that sound stupid?  For some reason, I cannot get one side of my strap adjusted and I keep forgetting to ask my husband for help.  Ugh!!!!  I do swim a few laps, but I can’t do too many because I get so pooped after our workout!  Are you reading between the lines here?   CLARETTA HAS BEEN GOING TO THE GYM AND WORKING OUT FOR OVER 3 WEEKS NOW!!
Pretty soon, I’m going to start using some dumbbell weights to try and lose some of the chicken wings of my upper arms.  I have to remember to get some gloves because I CANNOT STAND TO TOUCH THOSE NASTY METAL WEIGHTS – just saying.

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
