Weekend recap

It was a good weekend. D came in to visit, got here Thursday night...I love it when family comes to visit.

The only things I had planned when I knew he was coming revolved around food and drink. #duh

Friday during the day we went to the Galleria and then to the new Whole Foods down the street...ah-mazing. Then Stone's Throw for happy hour. Love me a progressive happy hour - $4 drinks from 4-5pm, $5 from 5-6pm, etc. And the stone's throw punch...perfection. BUT. But they don't have food there. So after a few hours we went down the street to Berryhill for a few margaritas and some dinner.

Pretty sure we didn't get up until the afternoon on Saturday...and I was def looking forward to Chuy's for lunch. D had told me before he even got here that he wanted to go back. Food was great...service was iffy. Next up...a trip to Costco! Love that place.** We had decided to grill out at E's house that night, so we needed to pick up some food for dinner. Three pounds of steak, two pounds of brussel sprouts...but I just could not bring myself to buy 10 pounds of sweet potatoes so we ran over to H-E-B for those and the wine.

Brunch Sunday at one of my new favorite places, Dish Society, and then it was almost time for him to go. We did a little more shopping. Went back to the house for a minute. And then it was time to head out to the airport.It was a short but good trip and I can't wait til the next time someone comes to visit.

And then, since it had been a few days since my last trip there, we went to Pistolero's for dinner. I feel like I'm doing something wrong with my life if we don't go there at least twice a week.

**We found out as we were leaving H-E-B that a woman had just been robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot of Costco at about the same time we were there. Good thing I had D with know that stuff tends to always happen to me!

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 …
