Here's what: May 30

Starting my four day weekend off with some work was not exactly what I had in mind, but it's almost time to relax. Moving on...here's what three things I'm obsessed with this week.
I've been told maxi dresses are the way to go for Houston in the summer. Looks like I might have to invest in a few since it's getting so hot. Revolve has a ton, but of course most of the one I like are pretty expensive.
I'm back on the bandwagon. After not thinking about it for a few months, I want Italian citizenship. I've found the forms I need to send to Italy to get my great grandfathers birth certificate. I just hope that they actually send it back. In a timely fashion. During my research, I saw a lot of comments from people saying that it is hard to get a response and sometimes the easiest way is to request it in person. Trip to Abruzzo anyone?
Found out this week that I'm getting a visitor for fourth of July! Can't wait. Time to start planning. Freedom over Texas, some time at the pool, maybe a road trip to Galveston and a Dynamo game. Let the countdown begin.

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 …
