I had my fat percentage measured yesterday. We all know about women, numbers and weight, right?
I’ve religiously been working out daily since February and I weighed and measured my body fat on a stand alone machine at the gym. That said I was 25% body fat although I’d take that with a pinch of salt as the next time I used it (wearing the same trainers) , it said I’d grown taller. According to the American Council on Exercise (not an official government agency) that 25% is average.
My weight hasn’t changed through working out but my body shape has, my clothes fit differently and RIP to my old bras. Yesterday I braved another test, this time using a Lloyds Pharmacy Body Handheld Composition. Apparently more accurate, and now its 18%, the personal trainer said he’d estimate I was more like 14-16% as I’m quite lean but either way I’m happy. My goal is to get abs in time for Xmas.
So happy in fact, I thought I’d make cupcakes! lol
Do you have any fitness goals? How did you keep yourself motivated?
