Headed to Austin

At 10:30pm last night I still had not packed a thing. But at least I had my wash done and had baked another batch of berry cobblers.
I have to be ready to go when I leave for work this morning. Me and a few of the girls are leaving the office just after lunch to head over to Austin and get ready for the Livestrong Austin Half Marathon.

We'll be working a booth at the Expo on Saturday before we run the half on Sunday. I'm looking forward to the trip. I've never really been anywhere in Texas outside of Houston. I mean, once in college I went to San Antonio for a wedding. But I barely remember that.

And I'm looking forward to having Monday and Tuesday off as well. It's really my first extended time off since the race. And I want to relax!

So here goes nothing. I've only been running for about four weeks. Plenty of time. I will, at least, finish. I hope.

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
