A's visit, the storm that wasn't and some other stuff

Where to start?

Omg these flowers. So I got flowers last week from one of my vendors. Literally five minutes later the delivery guy comes back and says sorry, they cancelled the order I need those flowers back. Umm, excuse me what?! So we may have given him a hard time even though it wasn't the delivery guy's fault. So I responded to an email from said vendor about something else and gave them a heads up - hope this is true and they didn't bill you for the flowers and run. They. were. mortified. Flowers #2 showed up 45 minutes later. 

A came into town for two days...hadn't seen her since my birthday dinner in Stammie in 2013! It was great to hang out. We went to Starbucks, took a long walk, dinner, drinks, brunch...all the good stuff. She left way too soon.

Then came the storm that wasn't. This was the first "storm" that was forecast for the area since I moved to Texas. And my email was going nuts. Bc of where I work, I get all the weather updates from Houston's Office of Emergency Management. And they were talking about things like make sure you have 3-5 days worth of non-perishable food, have a battery-powered radio, make sure you and your family have a plan for what to do in case you get separated. uh huh. Not reassuring.

So we went to Costco. And Target. And Lowes. I ended up hanging out with friends both nights. I mean. Come on. My first storm. Please don't leave me and Lola alone! haha. I now have a new rule to follow - If S doesn't freak out, I don't freak out either. He was more than a little anoyed by how concerned I was and all of the questions I kept asking. And in the end it was for nothing. Not even as bad as that rain storm/flooding we had a few weeks ago.

Now. I know I'm not supposed to wish for storms. And I would never want anything bad to happen to anyone. But once the forecast hit...I really wanted a day off of work. haha. sorry mom.

What else, what else? I ate a lot of salmon. Did a lot of yoga. Went running a few times. And walked Lola til she needed a break. Oh. I also met Mannie Fresh...but no photos please.

Lola - do we really have to go to puppy school? I could use another nap.

Super foods bowl with shrimp. Yum.

A wasn't even here an hour before we hit up Starbucks

Walked a loop at Memorial Park

True story.

Dinner at Crisp

Followed by punch bowls at Stone's Throw

Can't go wrong with brunch at Dish Society

Another super foods bowl - salmon this time.

Stocking up for the storm at Costco case of water was mine :)

I mean. None of us had any non-perishable anything at our houses. We do now.

That's the most food my fridge has seen in a while.

Salmon. Bc duh.

I'm gonna have to get Lola one of these beds, she didn't move all night.

More salmon.

Local Foods ftw.

Must. run. more.

It was hot out...she was over it. Literally 100 ft from my apt at this point haha

Aaaand one more salmon pic for good measure.

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 …

Hello Weekend

Finally. Just one more day of work. And then it's the weekend. No sleeping in for me though. Early morning group run and volunteer lunch tomorrow and then course tour on Sunday.
