20 wishes

I first saw a 20 wishes blog over on travel-babbles.com (it's one of my daily reads). It's a list of twenty fun things that you would like to see, do and experience over the next year. You can see her list here: http://www.travel-babbles.com/2012/11/20-wishes.html

Some blogger friends of hers came up with the idea because ""Life is short. Life is not guaranteed."

So I thought I'd give it a try. Right now, being new in town, all I have are the daily tasks - eat, work, sleep, run. Sometimes its even as fun as pay bills, do laundry, pick up takeout. I need to get out. Do stuff. Meet people. Get. A. Life. So here's my list of 20 things that I want to accomplish in 2013:

1. Get a good camera done

2. Take a solo vacation
3. Keep up with this blog
4. Join a running club
5. Run the Nike Women's half in DC didn't get in
5. Go to a concert
6. Finish decorating my apartment
7. Get another tattoo
8. Make at least four new recipes a month
9. Host a party
10. Find the library
11. Learn to take better pictures
12. Get a facial
13. Travel to (fill in the blank)
14. Learn to love wearing heels
15. Read 5 of the Classics
16. Go horseback riding
17. Stick to my budget plan
18. Train for (and maybe run) a marathon?!?
19. Take better care of myself
20. Win the lottery :)

New Goals - Lean

So I finally went back for my follow up body fat test last Tuesday. I didn't really know what to expect. I knew I had lost some weight and I could see more muscle definition, but I wasn't sure. I told myself I would be happy with anything under 30% since I was 33.8 the last time I went.

So of course in the lead up to the test I had like 5 cheat meals. Insert eye roll here. Saturday was margaritas and Mexican for dinner. Sunday was brunch and champagne and pizza. And then Monday was more Mexican bc of Sunday. Whoops.

Clearly I had to run Tuesday morning before the test. hahahaha

Then at lunch time I headed over to visit Heather. The got a new machine that's so supposed to be even more accurate than the BodPod and you don't even have to strip down lol.

So my new results were:
Weight - 147.6
Body Fat - 27.8

So I lost 6.3 pounds and 6% body fat. Total time elapsed between tests was 16 weeks.

This places me in the moderately lean category for women.

Moving forward, I think …

Hello Weekend

Finally. Just one more day of work. And then it's the weekend. No sleeping in for me though. Early morning group run and volunteer lunch tomorrow and then course tour on Sunday.
