Pity Party, table of one

It's been a pretty rough week.

With everything that's been going on with my family and how busy work is, I chose not to go home for the holidays. And bc of that decision, I ended up spending Christmas Day alone. And the day after. And I. Didn't love it. 

I had a few people over for Christmas Eve and that was great. Until it ended. I really did not want to be alone but I was.

One of these days I will figure out a way to make more friends in Houston. I have some. But most are the kinds of friends you see every few weeks for drinks or a run or yoga. I have one friend who I spend the most time with and therefore rely on way too often and probably expect too much from...but that's a story for another day.

And then there's the worry while waiting for my test results. Supposedly 3-5 days for the blood work, 10-14 days for the biopsy. But it's the holidays so I'm not holding my breath. 

You can tell it's the holidays bc I have food in the fridge.

I love my dog more than anything, she's always here for my when I need her.

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 …
