Bikinis & measurements....

Dang!!!! So close and yet not under 9 LOL

Went to pick up the bikinis but there are a couple of small adjustments to be made to the tops so I could only bring the bottoms home... Which is helping me decide which colour I really like the most... tough choice... still thinking... hmmmm will have to sleep on it.. for a few days....

As for the measurements.... Not amazingly fabulous but still good!!!

Weight stayed the same but the bodyfat dropped to 9.01%... damn that .o1... damn it to hell.. may a fleas of a thousand camels infest its armpits.....

I know, it is a teeny tiny number and even with it there I am ahead of target... skinfolds are now 46.4mm, so this means my LBM has increased to 57kg which is 2kg more muscle and 0.7% less fat than this time out from my last comp... yeah all is good.

Diet has been tweaked a bit so that I don't have to do any more cardio, mostly because I can fit eating into my day but extra cardio time means I would have to start making life changes to fit it in... I mean god forbid I have to not go to sucky job for quite as many hours.... and of course I want to save the extra cardio in case a lump of fat sneaks up and wraps itself around my abs closer to the comp... it would never wrap itself around my boobs.... no it would have to aim for my abs cause fat is like that, totally thoughtless... LOL

I have to admit to not having had enough time to read or listen or watch the details of the big Fad Diet overhaul by our Government yet... SO I can not make any deep and meaningful comments on the policies...

I will admit that the first thing that sprang to my mind was... how will this affect the whole fitness industry, will gyms and PTs become too scared of being sued for misrepresenting their programmes that they will become ineffectual?

I do not agree with fad diets, this is a lifestyle not a quick fix, but I do believe that at the end of the day it is up to each person to take responsibility for their own health and fitness and not blame their own laziness on someone else. Gee work out for an hour or drink a shake... I know which one I would prefer to do... but some would prefer the shake, its quick and painless. Its not the shakes fault that the person is too lazy to work at their own health...

I hope to have the time to study the whole thing some time this week and then I will probably rant some more..

Ohhh and Hi Bob, hope the Mistress M reads this to you... :o)
