Party planning

I'm a planner. I like to plan things. And by things I mostly mean parties. I love to plan having people over. And I generally tend to go overboard. Girls night, Friday pasta dinners, Christmas Eve, etc.

And right now it's fight night. There are some Bellator fights on Friday night and I'm having people over. So. I need a menu. Food and drinks. All the drinks. :)

Nobody has a race on Saturday, so we don't have to have pasta. I always want to do something fun and not the standard party food. That's boring. 

The fights start late, so maybe not a full dinner. I'm always dying for a reason to make a cheese plate. And I recently saw a "dip party" on Pinterest and while I don't want a ton of dips, I love a good hummus or two and maybe one more dip. And the fresh market has some pretty good flat bread pizzas. Is that enough? Too much? Who knows. 

Now for the drinks. S wants to bring his margarita machine. Cool. And I want one of my favorite drinks ever, the perfect pear - pear vodka, st Germaine, lemonade and prosecco. Yum. And of course other booze and beer. 

I may change my mind five or ten times between now and then but that's what I'm thinking right now. Thoughts? What would you make?

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 …
