I just realized that my scale is broken this week …. I was kinda bummed but my mama decided to surprise me and Sophia with a new scale that has a Body Composition Scanner Built in! Homedics makes the model we bought and it measure several things after plugging in your height,age, sex and level of activity… after plugging in my information it measured me in several categories:
Body fat %: 12.7%
Body Water %: 63.7%
Muscle Mass %: 44.9%
Bone Mass %: 5.3%
According to the scale’s Chart in the manual, I’m a little too low on the body fat percent. Probably from all the running. Going to have to have to gain more muscle mass too! I think I’m going to love this scale!
I ran 2 miles this morning and wasn’t really feeling up to par so I decided to come downstairs from my workout area and have a nice hearty breakfast:
I will be hopping back on the tredmill later tonight after I get some work done but I was kinda depressed that my legs were just so achy while running this morning, and what bugs me even more is I’m not really sure why; Maybe I’m lacking in protein or carbs in my meals? not sure though….Do you ever feel like your legs are totally achy when running? What do you think it’s a lack of? Any type of suggestions on what I can do to keep my long distance running up to par? Hopeful the heart meal I just had will fuel my run for later on! Gotta keep ya head up!
Last night Pete and I went to Via Veneto Italian restaurant near my house. After I decided to make some homemade guac!
We had some left over gift certificates from Via Veneto that we had received from the silent auction of the Ahepa Marrow Basketball Tournament . We decided to have some yummy italian food before going to see “Country Strong”. Pete ordered the Fagottini pasta which was the dish I had ordered the last time we went to the Via Veneto.
Fagottini Di Ricotta E Pere
Salmon Special for the night:
For dessert we shared the Pistachio Gelato:
Afterward we went to the movies and saw “Country Strong” which isn’t a movie worth me writing too much about lol… But Pete and I did take some movie theater pics
Personally, I didn’t think the movie was all that good, It was decent, but I wouldn’t mind if I never saw it again lol…
This morning, besides getting the amazing scale, I received these goodies in the mail from a high school acquaintance who’s working for an Organic company called Natrii.
If you want some samples sent to you I can try to contact my friend and see what I can do… Simply comment my post and let me know you’re interested.
Besides the new Scale my mom also surprised me with something absolutely WONDERFUL… My VERY FIRST…….
My mama and I went to Jewel a couple of days ago and stocked up on some goodies from there too:
I’m planning on going for a massage this week with the gift Pete gave me for my birthday back in October:
What type of massage do you recommend I get our of all these?
Swedish: Head to toe massage using European technique and stokes to relieve your body of unwanted stress.
Combination: Combined techniques to help you relax and rejuvenate.
Deep Tissue: Forearms and elbows are used to reduce muscle tightness on targeted areas to restore range of motion.
Sports: Deep pressure and stretching is used to help the muscles prepare or recover from activity.
- Hot Stone: The warmth of heated basalt stones penetrates muscles and balances the nervous system. Stones or varying sizes are settled into body contours in areas that tend to hold tension.
Common Injury: Comprised of different massage modalities to release muscle tension and help speed recovery.
Duo: Two therapists work simultaneously on different parts of the body.
Scalp: Upward strokes are used to increase the circulation of blood which helps the health of hair.
Reflexology: Pressure is applied using thumbs and fingers onto reflex points. Stimulating specific points increases circulation, releases blockage and relieve stress.
Aromatherapy: Essential oils to help heal, alleviate pain and regulate mood.
