Getting Fit

The last few months I have not been good to my body.  Before April- Mayish, I was running 3-5 days a week and doing hot yoga 5-7 days a week. Once I learned that we would be moving out of God's Country, I decided that it would be a fantastic idea to stock up on Mexican food and more drinks with my girlfriends.  That wasn't a very good idea.  We ate out a lot in June.  I thought that once we got moved in and settled, I would start back to meal planning and cooking more but we continued with the eating out plan.  What better way to explore the new city than by the restaurants.  So, no exercise, no healthy foods plus being on prednisone  for 3 weeks and doubling all of my steroids has resulted in some weight gain and a pudgy belly.   Boo.
I gained A LOT of weight in college and I promised myself that I would never let myself get like that again.  I am just a few pounds shy of my fat fatty weight and that's depressing.  So, Matthew and I decided to invest in a Withings Body Analyzer Scale because I don't want to just focus on my weight, I'm really wanting my body fat percentage to be at a normal range.
The scale arrived yesterday afternoon and I'm so excited that we have it!  I enjoy weighing myself throughout the day.  Weird, huh?
Here are my stats.  I don't know why I feel that I think it's okay for me to put this on the internet.  If the Extreme weight loss folks and biggest loser folks can weigh in on national tv, then I think I can weigh in on my little blog.

As of this morning:
Weight: 137.3
BMI:  25.3
Fat Mass 33.5%

Here's the normal range for women my height and age
Weight: 118- 132
BMI:18.5 - 24.9
Fat Mass: Average: 25%-31% Fit: 21-24%

Here's to getting hot and fit! :)
