Fitness friday..2 days late

I suck at posting on time.
Sorry about that.

How was your week for fitness? Did you try something new? Did you push a bit out of your comfort zone? Do it.

I had a weigh in this week (friends with body callipers are great friends to have). Another .5 pound lost but 1.5% body fat gone. Not far to go now, my goal is 10% bodyfat. I feel that would be a maintainable %.

My friend did drop a bit of a bomb on me at my weigh in...she asked me if I wanted to compete. She said I have the right "build". Small waist, broad back and shoulders and an overall athletic build.

Humm....I love watching fitness competitions but to actually get up there on stage? Never mind the 12 week starvation diet I (and my family) would have to the 2 hours of cardio a day I would need to fit in.

I'm undecided. I'll keep you posted.

Are you curious who this friend is of mine....check her out for inspiration...she looks pretty much like this year round...amazing.


  1. I bought running shoes this week.

    I'll let you know if I go forward with using them!

  2. I love her abs! And her bewbs - seeing as I have none left. I lost about 5% of my body fat from my chest.

    That just sounds like torture to me though, 2 hours of cardio? And the starving, how do you have energy to do the cardio then? I need a nap just thinking about it ;)

    I pushed myself this week. Too hard. I am exhausted now. It's also that time of the month, or for me, year. Sigh. It will pass!

  3. Wow 10% body fat is amazing! How do you test your body fat. I hear the water test is really the only most accurate!
