Claretta – Week 14

+1 pound

I’m still on a high from this past weeks activities! I was fortunate to get away to the coast for 3-1/2 days of major fun for a reunion with 10 or so friends from high school. It’s been almost 45 years since we graduated and went our separate ways. With a little help from Facebook, we were able to reconnect and had such a great time talking, laughing and eating. I’m very proud of myself for my “eating habits” during our time together. I didn’t drink any sodas, nor did any fried seafood or pancakes pass my lips! I was even able to pass up the baskets of garlic toast appetizers that were placed before me! Anyone who knows me, knows what a sacrifice that was! My only big cheat was eating a few too many of these………


I mentioned in a previous post that I had entered Dr. Oz’s Transformation Nation weight loss contest. I spent a few days completing all the requirements for the contest. Someone on Dr. Oz’s Team has been reading Fire Lites Fire and invited them to participate in a live web-cast this week. Wow!!! Way to go Lexy, Carman and Cyndi!! Now, I’m really being accountable for my weight loss goals. So, I’ve decided to kick it up a notch by hiring a personal trainer. I’m so excited to have someone push me and kick my booty all around the gym! Hey Lexy! Your mom’s working out at the gym!!!

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!
