Today is my Friday

I love our spring schedule at work - the office is split into two groups and we rotate Fridays off for several months. And tomorrow is my Friday off.

It looks like the rain may finally take a break tomorrow, so I plan on running, going to yoga and hanging out by the pool if I can. At least until I need to go to the store to get everything for Friday night.

I really need to step up my running and to do that, I think I actually need to schedule in some off days. Last week, my Friday, Saturday and Sunday runs all felt terrible. Monday and Tuesday were good and then yesterday felt sluggish and hard again. I don't think I am one of those people who can run seven days a week with no rest. Not after being a runner for over 20 years. I need rest. Even if it's only one day off a week.

I also need to get back into yoga. I think that's part of the problem too. It's been over a week since my last class. And my hips are ridiculously tight. I'm going to try and start going in the morning again next week. Even though I will never be a morning person.

And we lifted yesterday for the first time in months. I am so sore. I really need to be in the gym at least two days a week as well. This whole being healthy thing sure does take up a lot of time. It's a good thing I almost never have plans. <-- It's not funny bc it's true.

So maybe today is my day off. I didn't go to yoga this morning. And the 5pm class after work is not a good one. We'll see how I feel about running later.

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 …
