175.2.... Willing to accept only because yesterday was legs day and I didn't have a bm yesterday or so far today. I remember when a legs day meant losing at least 1 lb. I think it is time to switch to my summertime passion green tea instead of coffee and drink green tea at work. Drinking 5 liters minimum a day 1400 calories and that is under what livestrong and my trainer said for my max by 200 calories. Maybe start eating 2 salads a day and kick the brown rice out for a while.

Do you think weight goes up after leg day? what's the science behind that? maybe that can help me lol...i trained legs tuesday and my weight has crept up a bit...
yes it might be a good idea to cut back on the brown rice.

One way for me to tell for sure and that is to put on my tight jeans. Usually after legs day I feel like I need to grease up the jeans and thighs just to get the jeans up over them. No science behind it just how my legs feel.. swollen. Will kill the rice for a couple weeks but going to keep my red lentils with garlic and onions cause it is yummy!

1/4c dry red lentils, 1 whole onion diced or sliced, 1 clove minced garlic. I cook lentils in water with crushed red pepper. sautee onions and garlic until tender add to lentils and eat. Nothing fancy just filling

Depends on my mood but normally i water sautee them. Usually I do virgin coconut oil if I use oil at all and only if I notice I haven't had much fat in my diet for the day and it is usually only 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp of oil

I am on day 2 no coffee and day 2 of green tea. I might enjoy a cup or 2 a month as a treat since I get 2 free coffees a month with Starbucks gold card (score!!). I think my body is under fire and over stressed right now that yoga felt super amazing and it was like the instructor was talking to me. I really think it is time to find a job or client that is more understanding to my eating habits than the lady I am with. She is complaining because I eat to much, cook to much and use the bathroom excessively (I drink at least or close to 3 liters of water while there....). I literally am to the point I feel guilty about eating and drinking while I am there but can't go that long without food and water. I miss working nights!!!

Ok so I broke down and had a thin slice of banana bread today. I could smell it all over the kitchen. I was still hungry after lunch so I opted for a few dry roasted almonds and cherries to tide me over til snack time while I ran errands. I bought some dates and at some of those too. I noticed no issues with dry roasted almonds so looks like almonds will be back in diet for a while!! I guess maybe raw almonds is a little much for my body to digest???

Maybe you had a bad batch of raw almonds? There is a fungus that grows on outside of nuts that causes stomach distress also (immune system attacking it). Perhaps that was it? and roasted almonds won't have it on it as it is killed by heat (and also the salt - if they are also salted).

Banana bread is a nice treat - especially if it is a 'tasting' slice ^.^!

It was a tasting slice. No salt on my nuts at all. I fresh roasted them this am. Just glad to add them back into my diet. Went to see MIB3 tonight for some stress free time and getting ready to lay down with my pup for some loves. I need to slow back down again and love life again

I have no idea what is going on in my body!!! 176.4.....overtraining in cardio maybe??? Maybe my body is in starvation mode and holding onto everything I eat??? I am at a loss right now and very discouraged. I will keep documenting and will cancel the idea of baking breads for awhile at work. Blood sugar this morning is 95 yay!!
