Weekend recap

I didn't do much this weekend, but at least I have a lot of photos to show for it,.

Friday Amanda and I went to happy hour after work...her first happy hour since the baby. I got home  pretty early and was going to cook until I accidentally took a two hour nap! I'm still not sleeping much so I will take it when I can get it.  Later that night I was thinking about my long run for Saturday morning when I realized I needed to eat something, anything, or I wouldn't make it through my run. So I threw on some tortellini quick.

Saturday morning I went out for an easy five. And I ran a pretty consistent just under nine minute mile. Not too bad. I would like to be able to keep this pace for 13! We'll see. Finally checkout out my new pool later that day and cooked dinner that night. Helpful tip - never eat salmon that's been in the fridge for oh five days. It was a rough night. 

I felt better by Sunday so I met up with E and a few other people to watch football at a sports bar. And it was work! My favorite kind. Later that night I really did not feel like cooking. Literally, my over was on for 30 mins and I just couldn't get up to cook anything. So I was happy when someone else didn't feel like cooking and we went to Pistoleros. Of course I thought I was starving and only ended up eating one taco, but the margaritas were good.

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 …
