The winner

I found an apartment. Signed the lease already and everything. I don't move in until August 31 though. Which means I have plenty of time to plan and over-plan and look at new things to buy.

I went to see the Marquis Downtown on Friday afternoon and dragged K along with me. Heading in I didn't think I would take it. I thought the rent was at my ceiling and that parking was not included. Turns out parking is included. And I won't find any other place in this price range downtown. The guy who showed me the apartment told me he the apartment wouldn't last through the weekend - yes, I know that's his job - and that if I wanted it, I needed to sign the lease right away. But he did have a point, this place is $200+ less than every other place yet in the building.

It's a one bedroom, loft style, 776 square feet and pretty cool looking if I do say so myself. (I will not have a red wall or that ugly furniture.)

My inspiration for the new place...
I would kill for a pink fridge like that, but I'm not buying appliances for a rental.

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 …
