Day 139 - Making the Move

Friday, April 17, 2015

It's almost done! We are finalizing the escrow on the sale of the Sacramento house, and tomorrow we will rent a UHaul truck to bring the remaining furniture and the fridge in the garage up to the lake. It has certainly been an adventure!

I had a great workout this morning. Having the higher intensity really gets me going in the morning.

As I get closer to the goal weight that SP set for me when I started, I'm realizing that my actual goal weight may need to be a little lower. I want to shoot for a body fat percentage below 18%, and I'm at 19.5% right now (depending on the accuracy of our digital scale). For the first time in my life, I feel like having a "ripped" body is actually possible (even at my age)! The workouts have helped give me confidence, and the muscles that are trying to peek through tell me that I can do it. I even feel like I could pull off a pair of skinny jeans!

Did I mention that the jeans I'm wearing today are a 33" waist?

Have a great weekend, and an AWESOME Friday!

    I can't even remember when I wore a 33" waist and I doubt that I will ever see that, but congrats, what an accomplishment. Sounds like this has been a great journey for you and so glad you are young enough to utilize a tight fit body yet. At my age, all i can hope for is to extend my days a bit longer and feel better while I am doing it. Great job and congrats on finalizing the escrow on the house in Sacramental. Have a great weekend and enjoy it!
