Bonding with Old Bessie (once again)

Well, here it is already. It's Friday! and since I have decided that I have to hold myself accountable to the scale once again, that means it is time to have my weekly check-in with Old Bessie. Old Bessie is my scale for those of you that do not know this. We have been through a lot together and while she is usually good to me, sometimes she is a down right B!TCH.

Now I have a pretty "healthy" relationship with her. My view of the scale is comparable to that of a compass=I use it as a tool to measure what direction I am heading. I do not allow Old Bessie to dictate my mood for the day-or the week for that matter. That is why when I am getting down to the nitty-gritty of it all, I will also incorporate measuring as a tool as well.

This week I have been a good girl with my eats and I have had some good workouts (although I could have used a bit more time with some iron but that's another subject all together). I have even found a recipe to help with my ice cream addition (if that works out, trust me-I will be sharing the recipe)

So how did this week workout??

I am down 4lbs and zero change on my body fat % which leads me to believe that a lot of this loss is water weight. I will continue keeping the eats in check and working out hard and see what NEXT Friday brings. All I know is that I feel better this week eating the way I should be eating.

I am also happy to report that the nagging pains that have been plaguing me of late are starting to fade. I dare say that my run yesterday was nearly pain free *knock on wood*.

So I am heading to the track today with my Cuz Jana to run with the joggers. Yes, we are taking the BOB's to the track. This should be funny. I am bringing my camera just to capture THIS Mommy Running Adventure on film.

Remember to check back this weekend for MY FIRST awesome giveaway!!

How do you calculate the body fat %?

@Melissa-that is TOO funny about Bessie!!
@Andrew-my scale gives me a BF% reading which is not entirely accurate since this can vary with how much water you are holding as well.
