Weekend recap

It was another boring weekend in H-town. But let's jump back to lunch on Thursday first. OMG. K and I went to Sweet Paris Creperie and it was A-mazing.I had a croque madam - eggs, gruyere cheese, smoked ham and bechamel sauce - and we split a nutella crepe with strawberries.

The USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships were this weekend, so a lot of time was spent on twitter, usatf.tv and watching the shows on TV. Overall it looked like a great meet, but Des Moines has a ways to go if they want be on the same level as Eugene and host an Olympic Trials.

Tried to hit the pool again on Saturday and lasted 90 minutes before I got too hot and went back inside.

Sunday was super exciting. I slept in, watched some TV and then met up with one of my volunteers for mani/pedis.
But, but, but...this morning I went for a run BEFORE work Hell may have officially frozen over. Now I have to make it through the work day.

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 …
