I Walk For Candi…. Literally! :)


I survived the Friday night Trunk Or Treat party with minimal damage.  I had great intentions of avoiding the candy and junk food over the weekend. Those little bite size candies are too hard to resist!!!  I love everything related to CANDY!!  Haha! I can’t help it!!!

Saturday morning we did a 5K walk to support Candi, a lady from church! Now this is the kind of Candi I should be supporting!  D’Feet Breast Cancer hosted a 5k and 10k as well, but we participated in the 5k walk portion.  It was a beautiful day.  If you would like more information or would like to donate, please visit their website HERE.

So that pretty much sums up my Junk Food Fest of a weekend!  Part of me is pretty disappointed in my choices and the other part of me doesn’t care.  I will have to admit that I’m nervous about the holiday season officially starting!  I am going to have to come up with some type of plan to not totally blow it!  I may be spending more time on the elliptical or treadmill to counter act all of the goodies!  I’m trying my best to navigate this new territory for me, but sometimes I really just want to not have to think about it.  And I’m slowly learning that is not possible.  For me, I will have to deal with this emotional eating, and planning my food out, FOREVER!

Felt great to start out this week back at BOOT CAMP!  This is an amazing class with a great instructor!!!  We love it!!!

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!
