Day three

Today will be my third day in a row at the gym. I know, I know, three what?

But, but I am sticking to my plan. My new gym offers a fair amount of classes in the evening (even if I don't like the times), so I am trying to take one class per day right now to get back on the work out wagon. At some point, I would like to get into running in the morning and doing a workout in the evenings. I just have to make myself get up when the alarm goes off at 5:30am. Not an easy thing for me. But something I am working on.

I really want to up my running game. Particularly after I saw this. I am considering it, but don't know if it would work out bc of my job. They def have some cute items. I have been eyeing quite a few things for a while now. Everything on their website was designed and tested by real women athletes in Seattle, Washington.


Oiselle is all about helping women run free and fast! Currently we have 150 women from across the country who represent our brand as they train and race toward their running goals. Above all, we seek teammates who - like us - see running not just as a sport, but as a life philosophy. And who are excited about bringing this energy to their own community. A sisterhood of strength. Every July, we review our team, and all team members reapply, so there is opportunity for change and new members.

If you are interested in applying, please email Team Manager Kristin Metcalf, Applications are due by July 1st to be considered for the following year. Thanks for your interest - we look forward to hearing from you!

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 …
