You really need to up that protein! You'll see your results so much faster. Initially it might cause a "weight gain" from retaining more muscle, but when you look more toned, no one needs to know the number :wink:
Do you use protein powder?

With lacking a bit of protein you're still looking quite toned, so wicked job! It's nice to see that not everyone crumbles into a couch potatoe when they're injured!

Thanks... I know I need to get that protein up! It's so hard for me though. I've been supplementing for about 2 weeks with Bob's Red Mill Hemp and Lifetime's Life Basic Chocolate(which I love!). I also eat Tofu, tofu products, beans, nuts, and nutbutters. I'm finding it hard to keep my fat grams down while getting the protein up. Any suggestions appreciated :)

My main suggestion is protein shakes...that's where I get the bulk of my protein. I'm not overly thrilled that that's the case, but I only have 2 shakes a day so it's not like I'm having it all the time. They're a great way to keep calories, fats, and carbs to a minimum while increasing protein.

2/12:

No lifting in today just cardio. Did an hour spinerval that had a 20-min TT main set. I was sweating, and huffing and pufffing! But felt good to go hard on the bike again. I'll be cleared to run hopefully in a couple weeks. My focus this week is to get back clean eating back this week. School starts again today so I'll be more focused on that plus work so no mindless eating or drinking. So excited for my 90 min deep tissue massage!!!
