It's almost time...

For me to move again. I was laying in bed last night when it hit me. A week from now I will be sleeping in my new apartment. I really should pack more!

I've moved so much and so often that I now consider myself a pro at it, so I am definitely not worried that I have put it off too long. Most of my clothes and linens are packed, part of my kitchen and about half of my glassware. I really don't have that much stuff. Ok, I do. But not as much as I used to have.

But moving is still a massive undertaking. Time consuming, overwhelming and exhausting.

I try to plan ahead. Get boxes, find out what friends can help and figure out what to keep really accessible bc I will need it right away. This year I will have movers so that should make things extra easy for me. But I will pick up my keys the day before and do several runs to take over anything breakable and probably most of my clothes.

One thing I always forget to do until the last minute is change my address with everyone and turn off my electric at the old place. So this week I will try to remember to update all my billing info with the bank, student loans, bills, etc.

I'm going to try and get everything else packed this weekend. Once the week is over I figure the cooking will be too. Or I can at least use paper plates and red solo cups for a few days. While I'm packing I'm going to try and take an inventory of all the major things I own. And while I'm doing that try to weed out the things I don't use so I can give some more things away. I currently have four bags of clothes and a box of backpacks and old bags to give away.

I'm pretty antsy about the move but one of the things I can't wait for is the ability to walk out my front door and go for a run. You all know I won't do that where I live now. I get in my car and drive at least 15 mins if I want to go for a run. So that will be a nice change of pace. Along with all the closet space!

Then comes the unpacking once I'm finally in. The movers are supposed to show up at my place between 7:30 - 9:00am Tuesday morning. I'm hoping that that means everything will be loaded, moved and unloaded by noon. With the cable company coming between 2-4pm, I'll be unpacking the whole time and hopefully all unpacked by the end of Tuesday night! Yes. I know I'm crazy. But like I said. I don't have that much stuff.

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 …
