My body fat was 22%, which is one of the main reasons I wanted to go (to find out what my body fat was). My friend Kendall's body fat was about 18%, but she's way less active than I am. It's funny how different our bodies are! Even her frame is so much smaller than mine, and I thought I had a pretty petite frame. Just another good reminder NOT to compare yourself to others because, as my dad once said, you will always find someone who is smaller, prettier, richer, etc. He said, "Diz, there will always be someone who is richer, smarter, more beautiful, skinnier. And you will always be richer, smarter, more beautiful, and skinnier than someone else. So quit comparing yourself all the time." It is so true.
I was guessing before the final analysis that my body fat would be between 25-27%, so I was happy to see it further down than that. I'm just a cushy girl! Very cushy...GREAT for snuggling and cuddling, not so great for swimsuit modeling. I don't think I've ever been below 20% so it will be interesting to see what happens...of course he wouldn't talk rates with me this time around so we'll have to see just how far we get together...because if he costs more than the kickboxing gym around the corner, it ain't gonna happen. Another reason I'm skeptical (price. If it wasn't bad, why wouldn't he just say it?) I didn't sign up for the kickboxing gym and it was $90/month. I have a deal with myself that I can join no specialty gyms (so no yoga, kickboxing..and probably crossfit) until I've paid off all of my credit cards except one. I was set to have them all paid off by March but after my little shopping extravaganza at the GAP this week...Let's just say I'll be pushing that back another month!
Other than that, this day has been pretty good. The period started but it's been a breeze today. No cramps, the assessment didn't even phase me. I've only had about 1/2 my points today and I'm not really hungry...I think it's because I didn't do my normal workout routine so I'm just not burning the calories like I normally would. But I plan on eating a healthy dinner and then the roomie and I are headed up to LA for dancing and mingling, so I should still have a good day by the time it's all over.
I'm wearing red lipstick right now. It looks weird on my face, but kinda cute. I figured I'd try something new since I LOVE wearing my lips plain or nude with just a bit of gloss. But I read in a magazine this morning while getting my hair done that nude or plain lips are out and bold colors are in right now, so I figured I'd give it a shot. The last time I wore bold lipstick was in HIGH SCHOOL! Haha! Hey, it's in right now! I've got to be on top of the latest trends! I have to keep reminding myself it's "BOLD"...not "CLOWN-ISH". :)
Ok friends- Happy Saturday night!
