All in All - Not too Shabby

Monday, March 25, 2013

Today was a good day.

I woke up this morning weighing in heavier that I did on Friday, but that is to be expected. I always weigh heavy on the Mondays after I work. It is from extreme water retention. I chalk it up to sitting all of the time. I try to get up and move around, but since we are short staffed and hella busy, I can't really take a long time away from my desk. I take about five minuets on average. I have been getting up every hour and running up to the second tier to check the fax machine. I know these few pounds will come off soon. It is just annoying!

By weighing myself every day, I am able to notice trends in my weight. It is a very helpful tool to me!! I am thinking about investing in one of those fancy scales that reads body fat% and water %

This is the one I am looking at. $59.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond.
"Get a clear and accurate picture of your overall body health with this comprehensive body analysis scale from Beurer. It's designed with sophisticated technology that displays all in one view your body weight, body fat, body water, muscle percentage, bone mass, calorie consumption, and body mass index"
Sounds good to me!

I am currently at 28.4% body fat. I would like to be at 17%. I think this is my answer to being so scared about maintenance. Now that I have another thing to "lose" I should be happy working for that goal!

I really wish I was able to post a screen shot on here. I registered for Mud on the Mountain!!

I have a start time of 9:00 - I figured it was best to start off early. That way, I have a lot of time to pace myself!

After wearing my new uber expensive jeans around the house a bit, I decided they didn't fit quite right, so I took them back to the store. I exchanged them for another pair, in a different cut, and SMALLER size! Whoo hooo!!

I think that is all for now

    Hallo Courtney!
    You should get that scale, unless it is a stretch $$. It is better to nip bad habits in the bud, quick. This way you can be right on top of things.
    I think I am shopping vicariously through you. Those jeans are the best!
    (How is the Bingo?!)
    Just teasing!
