About Kay

I’m Kay, 26 yrs old female. I have been working out for about 3 yrs now. Most of my workouts usually involve free weights, body weight and core and I enjoy doing them.

I don’t do a lot of cardio, maybe once or twice a week. running on a threadmill bores me, I’d prefer running outside but I rarely do. I do have some shortcuts though , for cardio.

Lately I started taking swimming classes and I’m slowly progressing. It is hard to learn how to swim as an adult. But I’m improving.

Currently I weigh 130 lbs ( was 125 lbs 3 months back), with 20% body fat ( was about 23%or so). My goal is to get to 16% of BF.

I know that nutrition is more important than our workouts, I eat clean most of the time , but I crave cakes and chocolates. If I can handle that , I’m sure I’ll reach my goal soon.

I would like to share workouts, nutrition , receipes( very important, I’m challenged in this area) and be a part of this support group. Learning is a part of this game and I hope to continue to workout and be fit as long as I can.

    Nice blog, only I wish there was some way to easily change from pounds to kilograms.

    So how do you measure BF.
    I don’t want to go to a fitness club to get it done because I have no plans of joining. I would rather work out at home but I do want to know where I stand. Any ideas?

      You can get one of these . I have both and both work fine. The only problem is that you will need someone to pinch certain areas and take the measurements, usually 4-6 sites. If the pinching is not accurate, you might not get accurate results. you can then plug in these numbers in any online bf calculator like this.

      Otherwise , try calling few fitness centers and ask them if they do skin fold body fat testing for free. Some of them do. Though even they can’t guarantee accurate measurements.

      Here is more info on different methods.

      If you need more info , let me know.
