Be-You-tifully Fit: Brrr!

wpid-20150215_184741.jpgIt's so cold!!!!  This weather is forcing much more time logged on the treadmill.  Not my favorite BUT it gets the job done without freezing my fingers off!

Lately, I have been trying out a pair of Altra Provisioness 1.5s too.  Not too sure how I feel about them yet.  I haven't been able to do a pavement run so I just can't be sure if I like them or not yet.  The toe box is definitely different than the Mizuno Inspire 10s that I love.

wpid-20150217_075901.jpgOther awesomeness...  I have officially hit the body fat caliper teeter!  One side of my torso measurements with the caliper consistently get a 10 and the other side consistently get a 9.  I've teetered from "Ideal" to "Lean"!

Woohoo!!!!  Not much further to go from my all time goal when I started this whole journey!
