Update 4.18.16

Since the office is closed bc of all the rain today, I finally have time/want to write an update. I've been gone for a minute bc I wanted/needed to walk away for a bit.

Anywho...last weekend I finally really celebrated my birthday on Saturday...with some good people and a lot of champagne. Max's Wine Dive for dinner (love that place, great brunch), Stone's Throw for drinks (another fave) and Pistoleros late night bc well Pistoleros. Sunday was super lazy. Stayed in bed forever, wandered around for a few hours before heading to an engagement party for friends. Super cute couple, so happy for them.

Since we're still in the middle of my use-or-lose vacation day, I had two days off mid-week last week. Wednesday was spent having all the fun and I tried to make up for it on Thursday. Dish Society is now one of my favorite happy hours. $15 bottles of prosecco and pretzels with gouda queso. Yes please. Which is probably why I cut my Thursday morning run short. That, the margaritas and just generally being hungry haha. So after a healthy lunch and maybe a nap I went to Memorial for another run later that night. Oh that's what else I did Thursday. I have been looking for pillows for my "new" couch since I got it. And I finally bit the bullet and bought some. I love pillows. I want them all. But come on. They are so expensive.

Catching up with Gmoney at lunch on Friday was good. Had never been to Bramble on Voss before - the burger was so good. All the wine at dinner with friends that night made for an early night. Saturday was more running, I sat outside for an hour I think and then did some much needed cleaning in my place. Went to Pistoleros that night to watch the Glory fights and, early on, was told you have to order food! when S found out I hadn't eaten yet that day. whoops. The fights were good, then we went to El Tiempo for dinner bc we always need more Mexican and margaritas. After another early, shitty run on Sunday I wandered around town for a while - Kuhl & Linscomb, Marshalls, Target, all my favorites - before another quick nap and Sunday pizza at Whole Foods. If you've never been to WF and had a pizza made fresh, sat at the bar with a beer and ate...you totally should.

With over seven inches of rain in my neighborhood in the last 24 hours, the office is closed today. In fact, most of Houston I think is closed today. It was nice to watch the Boston Marathon from my couch, but the race is over and now I'm bored. I would say it's time for brunch, but I'm pretty sue driving may not be a good idea. Either way, I'm back now and will be posting on the semi-regular...when I feel like it.

In the meantime, here's my week in pics...

She knows she's not supposed to be up there...

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 …
