Weekend recap

Let me start off by saying...I love three day weekends. There should definitely be more of those.

It was, for the most part, relaxing. And hot.

Friday I sat out by the pool. In a bathing suit. Parts of me that hadn't seen the sun in six months got a little more color that I would have liked. And boy was it hot. I lasted about 2.5 hours before I had to get out of the heat.And when I went to check my mail, my new book had arrived! I think it's time for a road trip.
On Saturday, I finally joined a gym! I went over to the LA Fitness around the corner to take a tour. I had a plan. I wanted to get a cheaper membership than they were offering. But those things never work out for me. It's not a bad deal, but I do think it's weird that it costs more than my old membership in CT. While there, I found out K had just finished a workout (she belongs here too). She came back in to see me and we ended up going across the street for breakfast. I was too hungry to workout. Oops.

Later that afternoon, I went to my first-ever crawfish boil. I had a great time, but I ate way too much. I have got to stop doing this. Honestly. I think I ate 4 pounds of crawfish. Not good. I woke up Sunday morning with a crawfish hangover. Oof.

Sunday morning I got up early (for me) and worked out. Go me. Mainly because I had an 11:00am meeting with someone about a photo shoot I'm planning for work. The meeting was great, especially since it included brunch at the Buffalo Grill. The rest of the day was spent being lazy and helping E get some healthy grocery shopping done at Whole Foods. I just don't have a huge desire to do anything when it's that hot out.

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 …
