The end of the super long weekends

With the end of May came the end of my time to use or lose my vacation for our calendar year and I was looking for something to do/somewhere to go. 

I've been to Austin twice before, but each time was to run a half marathon with people who have been to the city plenty of times and, you know, we were running so we didn't do too much else while we were there.

So, Austin it was. I found out after the fact that the reason hotels were a bit pricey was bc the NCAA West Regionals were going at UT. So many track athletes in town...made me feel more at home haha. I even ran into somebody I knew...that never happens to me.

So after driving up there early Friday afternoon, we ate and drank our way through Austin. Who needs touristy stuff when there's margaritas, tex mex, German food and In N Out? There was some wandering of the city, shopping, just walking was a good weekend.

Hotel pool...super hot out there on Friday.

Margaritas bc duh.

In N Out Burger for the win

I can not believe we drove right past Buccee's while I was working on my phone.

Needed a healthy dinner after all that food and alcohol.

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 …
