Claretta – Week 35

Mayan or Bust!!!

Here I am at week 35 of my healthy lifestyle change and I must say that I’m disappointed in myself.  35 weeks ago, I started out with a big bang and thought my life would change dramatically over the next few weeks and I’d be home free.  That has not been the case.  Yes, I have made a good start but have come to realize that I have a r-e-a-l-l-y long way to go.  

I have stayed the same weight for the last several MONTHS!  But it’s no one’s fault but my own.  I’ve gotten complacent with my eating habits or maybe I should use the word, lazy.  I pretty much quit doing my food journal, even tho I’m very aware of the food that I eat.  That has caused me to cheat more often – not ridiculous cheats, but bad enough to keep me from loosing weight.  I also quit drinking tons of water.  This combination has proven to be very detrimental to my weight loss goals.

In less than one month, I will be meeting up with my ’67 high school classmates at our favorite meeting place, The Mayan Ranch in Bandera, Texas.  I had high hopes that they would see a much slimmer me, and yes, they will notice a change, just not the huge change that I was hoping for.  I made myself a promise that I’d be able to climb up on a horse this year, without the aid of one of the wranglers.  I still have a few weeks, I better get busy!!!

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!
