Living Alone

For the past 10 years, with the exception of about 18 months around 2008, I have lived alone. 

The best thing about it is that I can literally just run around naked, cook and dance around in my underwear, and I don't have to think about it. When I'm alone, my house is a pants-free zone.

The worst thing about living alone ... is that I'm alone! I  love when my place is filled with people. But after they leave, it's soo quiet. 

Having the freedom to do whatever I want, play the music I like and watch whatever I want is nice. I really like having 'me' space. But I also love having someone/people over for dinner and having someone to watch TV with and just hang out with.


Some days I am too content being alone. I could stay at home all day. I have to MAKE myself go socialize. But at the same time, there are many days when I am climbing the walls because I am bored and want someone to hang out with and/or to get out of the house.

Living alone has given me confidence and independence...and also made me realize that being alone is not always my favorite. What's the balance though?

All the places I've lived since I got my own apartment...

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 …
