Fat % Update and More Blessing Counting

On a whim, I stepped on the scale last night after work to check my fat %. I can't attest to exactly how accurate that feature of my scale is but it read 38%, down 2% since my last reading on March 10th. Definitely the right direction. I'm going to update my measurements this weekend, too. I've just returned from a great workout on the elliptical, treadmill, lower body weights and floor ab work. I feel euphoric, light and spent.

I'm taking some time to count my blessings this morning. I feel very fortunate to have a home, a job and money to buy healthy food in these tough times and I want to, need to, give something back. I'm interested in information on worthy causes that are helping people who are suffering the weight of this economy, local (I live in Metro Atlanta) and national. If any of you have information about which organizations are doing good work and need the most help, please leave a comment. I'm going to spend some time today doing a bit of research. I just have to do something, even if it is just a week's worth of grocery money.

Have a beautiful day everyone!


  1. Yay! Congrats on the % fat loss, that's awesome! Also sounds like you had a great workout!

  2. Andra,
    I have a great cause you could contribute to...the "Help The Thomas Family Pay Their Bills Fund" is always accepting donations of any size, and we're a local charity! ;o) J/K Congrats on the success of your weight loss. You sound happy.

  3. Lara, you sound just like the message my sister left me this morning. She thinks my good cause can be buying she and the kids plane tickets to ATL. LOL!
