Lately (12.24.15)

It's been a really weird week.

I've been working on getting my Christmas shopping finished, trying to get some runs and yoga in, was named to Team Nuun...and have been dealing with some pretty severe hives.

I've had hives for over a year now. Allergy pills keep them under control most of the time. Well I missed two pills in a row last week and I have no idea if that's what brought this on but I've now had two rounds of hives that have lasted longer than 48 hours a piece. And the second round even had some that blistered. So on my second trip to the dermatologist in four days they did two biopsies. 

At this point I think they really have no idea what it is. So I just have to wait for the bloodwork and biopsy results to come in. In 7-10 days. Awesome. 

It doesn't really hurt but the area still itches some and I obviously can't scratch it. So I just try to ignore it. 

I've set up my tree, put a few gifts under it and have to finish my grocery shopping in a little while. I love Christmas Eve dinner. We'll be making filet, sweet potato stacks and Brussel sprouts. And depending on what I find at the store I want to make an appetizer version of the 7 fishes. It'll be a lot of food :)

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 …
