Maybe I’ll try this again.
I met with Sarah, my trainer, yesterday for the first time this year. We took my measurements again. Actual circumference numbers were the same as last time, but the fat measurements (with the pincher things) were down one inch for waist and thighs, and two inches, if i remember correctly, for triceps. Those decreases made the overall body fat percentage go from 29.1% (November 24th) to 27.7% yesterday.
The past couple of days I’ve had off of work for New Year’s and I spent sometime cooking and making some new stuff.
I also used the leftovers from the roaster chicken to make some chicken stock. Unfortunately, I didn’t have most of the normal ingredients to put in the stock (like celery and carrots…) so I used onions, a bit of green pepper, and a bunch of sun-dried tomatoes, then garlic and an assortment of herbs. I ended up with a 4 cups of chicken broth. It was so much easier this time around especially since I remembered to buy cheesecloth last week.
I went to the gym this morning when it opened at noon and it was FREEZING outside–like 9 degrees. I went running (as in run for 2 minutes or 2 laps, then walk for one minutes or one lap) for about 40 minutes, part on the treadmill and part on the track they have.
