So this afternoon I had my little appointment with the egg-shaped space looking device to measure how much fat and lean muscle were in my body...I went in with a open mind knowing that the results were not going to be great, but they weren't going to be devastating either cause I've been working my rear off the last several months. (Thanks, Darcy on giving me a heads up about the numbers...)

So the stats show that this 42-yr young, 5'9, 184# lady has 124# of lean muscle and 60 lbs. of fat on her body (32.9%)...Just numbers; numbers that I can work with...numbers that will go down (up on the age and lean muscle :) with every rep and every min. I spend doing HIIT...numbers that will change with all the healthy stuff I'm fueling my body with every day...numbers that WILL change!!

On another note, I have the Omiron handheld device that I've been using and I told the trainer that and she stated that the bodpod was +/- 3% accurate while the BFscales/ handhelds were +/- 5% accurate. I tested with my handheld this evening (prob shouldn't have done after my workout) and the reading was 30.1% so in the ballpark. I will go back to the bodpod in June to get a reassessment after this C2 is complete so I can see what progress I make. After that however since the handheld was just a couple %'s off of bodpod, I will use that (cheaper!)

Hope this info helps someone who uses one of the handheld devices and remember...YOU have the POWER to CHANGE the NUMBERS! :)
