Measurement Results

I mentioned the other day that I had an appt with personal trainer to get my body composition done - as part of the class I take 3 mornings a week. I also mentioned that I wouldn't get a % of fat, but be put in a zone.


The zones are:


*Needs Improvement: your body composition falls within a range that is generally associated with considerable health risk


*Fair: your body composition falls within a range that is generally associated with some health risk


*Good: your body composition falls within a range that is generally associated with many health benefits


*Very Good: your body composition falls within a range that is generally associated with considerable health benefits


*Excellent: your body composition falls within a range that is generally associated with optimal health benefits.


Well, I'm happy to report that I fell into the VERY GOOD category! Yay me!! The down side to this is that trainer said it is very hard to move from Very Good to Excellent. I will try though.


Other stats: since January I've lost 16 lbs AND almost 10 inches.

The lamb, pork and rice dinner I served last night was a hit. I had planned on tacos, but couldn't go to the grocery store to get the ingredients, and so I had to just go with what I had in the house. My mom then told me she hated tacos. I said why didn't you tell me when I said that is what I would be making. She said, well, that would be rude and I thought you knew. I said well, um, if you never tell me when I serve it, how would I ever know? Sheesh!!! Anyhow - my mom had never had lamb and she liked it. Turns out I can't even stand the smell of it cooking, BUT daughter just loves it, so I'm happy to hold my breath!

On the agenda today....golf. Husband & I are going with another couple. I expect it will be a fun day. I have to take the dog for a walk this morning before I go because he will be in his kennel for quite a while today. Don't worry - I keep lots of water and toys in there for him.

Daughter is getting the top of her ear pierced today. Yuk. I couldn't do that.

Sounds like daughter is awake. I should get going with my day. Have a healthy one bloggers!!

  4. Very good is VERY GREAT! Congrats! I have no doubt you'll move up to excellent!

    Oh, and how can anyone hate tacos? I love tacos! I guess you can't trust my opinion though, because I don't like pork or lamb. Glad the fam was happy with dinner!
