Here's what: Feb. 21

Back to my regularly scheduled's what three things I'm obsessed with this week.
I got my first pair of compression socks. From Lululemon. I didn't know how I would feel about them for a half marathon so first I wore them in the 5k two weeks ago. They were comfortable enough that I decided to try them out in Austin. I don't know if I noticed enough of a difference in how my legs felt but at least I liked the way the looked. So I bought another pair Weds after work. Now if only they would bring back the black ones.
While I was searching lulu's website in vain for more socks I came across these arm warmers. And I Want them! Now, I know I live in Houston. And it's hot here. But I just really want them for some reason.
This might be my next race. I'm not sure yet. We're trying to plan out our schedule at the office. I've never done a Rock 'n' Roll race, mainly because the entry fees are so high. But if the other girls want to give it a try, I think I could do it.

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 …
