Claretta – Week 28

Bye Jack!

Losing weight sure feels good!  When looking at the scale, I know it’s “just a number”, but when that number is going down in the right direction, it feels great!!  Checked in with my medical doctor today and I’ve lost 11 pounds since I saw him last, three months ago. Total pounds lost so far:

-37.2 – Now, that’s a number!!!

I’m glad to report that my gym experience is improving.  I still haven’t been able to go every single day, but my physicality is definitely better!  I finally got my mile on the treadmill to under 20 minutes, and I “wogged” almost half the time!  I find I’m less tired and can go farther before my walk/pace rest AND I can usually keep my heart rate up where it belongs.  My “control” while strength training is definitely improving too!

I also crossed a big barrier today.  You know how it goes when you’re doing good and your brain decides that you should reward yourself…well, that’s where I was this morning.  I was thinking that I’d just drive thru Jack-in-the-Box and enjoy one of those really good grilled breakfast sandwiches…I deserve it right??  I can’t tell you how good it felt when I just drove right past Jack and waved!  I think I’ll enjoy a nice spinach salad with grilled chicken instead.

A slimmer figure, healthy internals, lost inches – that’s what I deserve!!

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
