|It's always fun and games with Mimi and Pepere!!|
Thanks to Mike at 26.2 Is My Cooldown, I am now the proud owner of a Tanita BC-1000 body composition scale. I had my first weigh in last Friday and today was the first comparison check.
Down 1lb. and 3/10's of a % of body fat! I am pleased with that. I want to drop about 8-10lbs of fat and increase my lean muscle mass a bit (or even just lean out) so Yay! I am not sure my body fat % is really as low as the scale says so I will have one of the trainers at work "caliper" me so I can compare.
I gotta say the whole Paleo for the Athlete based eating I am doing seems to be working. I have had a couple days where I felt like I did not have my normal power on the bike, kind of 'blah' but it could be from several things. I am loving the foods (as is hubby) and it's been fun trying new things-even the "fails". Plus, it is definitely doing what I want it to do. I am certainly seeing much flatter abs too. Nothing like EMZ famous abs...yet!
Speaking of famous: I'll soon be "famous" for my tri skillz! *more sarcasm* I made my triathlon television debut his week when the local news station, WCSH-6 came to the Y to do a story for their Fit at Five feature on the upcoming indoor triathlon. They needed some B footage (aka filler) and guess who was asked to be in that B footage? Yup, me...and my bestie, Dawn and a couple other tri peeps from the club. The camera man spent an unusual amount of time taping Dawn's legs so, I think her quads will need an agent soon.
In bike news several things happened this week:
- I got two new pairs of shoes-one pair of PI road shoes and Carnac tri shoes. The old toe-cage pedals came off the de Luca and the Look KEO's went on. I did my Tuesday spin class clipless!
- My Bontrager Race Lite aerobars came and I will putting those on soon.
- I went to see Jared at OA to have my bike fitting done on Thursday.
