expect the unexpected!

My housemate was roaming the net last nite and came across a site that tells you you body fat percentage. I lend him one of my many measuring tapes and watch as he goes about in finding out his percentage. No ylet me just say this, i wasnt really surprised when he said he only has 8% body fat because he is pretty ripped! He is a small/short guy, not bulky but pretty ripped!
My turn....
a healthy woman should be between 22-25% and i am 40.2%!
Thinking back tho i do not recall puttin in my height but thats no excuse.... that number is now stuck in my head!
Nearly half of my body if FAT!
im not very impressed ...but my determination has returned in full force!
I have avoided all cakes and biscuits, put back all the chocolate I may pick up at the shops! Im actually pretty pleased at my ability to walk past the muffins (biggest weakness) but i now know of the giant calorie bomb they truly are! They are a special occasion treat only now! *sigh* If i must snack i eat almonds, strawberries and watermelon.... all fresh...nothing to processed.
Well my bday is in 3 days or so and I am still the same weight wise, yet i feel alot better body wise. I can see a difference in muscle definition, where places have firmed and toned up. i even chucked on a bikini the other day... still got my down but not as much as i assumed it would!
But i brought the most awesome dress ... 2 dresses actually, one for lunch and then one for night time that i can actually run a muck in haha, and both are in a smaller size.. a size that i am quite content with and they both fit really well. Am looking forward to saturday now :) i hope it goes well. I hate having parties for my birthday.. it makes me so uncomfortable knowing all the expectations behind a 21st but ihave decieded hey... its my party and ill drink/laugh/cry/passout if i wanna ...... haha
Well home time to do some walking/jogging. I should do the gym but feelin abit off 2day as have just started the pill again and always makes me feel quite ill for the first week, so some fresh ocean air will lift me.
ciao ciao
