I had my first follow-up “fat test” yesterday. It was actually a ‘Body Fat % assessment’. Anyway, my numbers went down! As I think I posted before the holidays, I was supposed to redo the test before we went home for Christmas, but we had to reschedule. That turned out to be a blessing because it gave me motivation to keep my eating in check over the 10 days we were home for Christmas. So yesterday I went in and my nutritionist got out the scale and the calipers and measured. I didn’t lose everywhere, but I LOST! I lowered my body fat % almost a full percent since the end of September. Yipee! 2 more months, and then I’ll get tested again. The good thing is that I can work out more regularly now, so I should do well on my next test. I start a new class at the gym tonight. Beginning Spinning. I don’t know if I wrote about it last year, but I tried a 45 minute spinning class and it was soooooooo hard. My heart rate didn’t slow down for an hour after the class was over! So this time I am doing it gradually. The beginner class starts with 15 min of ab work and then 15 on the bike. By the end of the 8 week class session, you are up to 45 min on the bike. So, we’ll see how that goes. But I may be investing in a donut to sit on. Ouch. Well, time to get to work. Happy New Year everyone.
My New Year’s Resolution:
Start a new hobby… preferably an active one……dancing lessons…..rowing…..something with music…..who knows!
