Claretta – Week 20

What a week!

Had a super Thanksgiving holiday…all my kids and grandchildren came home.  Plenty of good times, memories and wonderful food were enjoyed by all.

It was so great to eat enough to be satisfied and not stuffed.  I’m amazed at the things I didn’t eat which means that I have learned some self-control after all these years!  I’m really thankful for the blessings in my life and for all the support my family has given me during the past few weeks.




Not only am I in preparation mode for the holidays, but so is my house.  It’s been a construction zone for over 2 weeks and my contractor got things together enough for Thanksgiving.  Now there’s just a few more things to do this week and I’ll be able to get my Christmas stuff out.  This will be the most trying time for me with all the Christmas “goodies” that will be passed around.  My trainer worked my hiney off today at the gym and strongly encouraged me to keep my food journal.  I sure wish I had an iPhone so I could use DietSnaps!!!  I also need to drink more water – MUST DRINK WATER!!!

Oh! The most amazing thing happened – my contribution to the blog was noticed by Skinny Emmie!  She writes regular blog entries for Enell. (which is the sports bra I use)  She included my story on the Enell site HERE.  I’ve been a huge fan of the Enell sports bra since Oprah first mentioned it over 5 years ago.  From their site, “The ENELL SPORT Bra and the ENELL LITE Bra were designed to enable well-endowed women to exercise and work out in greater comfort. ENELL’s unique patented construction gives women of all shapes and size, the support they need. At ENELL, physically fit comes in all sizes.” As a thank you to me, she even sent me a brand new bra! So, thank you Skinny Emmie for my new Enell bra and for the encouraging remarks.
Another few pounds and I’ll hit a milestone! – Can’t wait!!! -Claretta

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!
