Before I start I think in the end I may just need some encouragement.
I did ChaLEAN Extreme last summer, then moved onto Jari Love's Ripped series, and continued with more weight lifting. I also do spin class twice a week and run 4x a week (short 3-4 miles a day). I am very methodical and research everything try to be as informed as much as possible so I get results and don't hurt myself.
I wear a heart rate monitor and religiously monitor it so I stay in the zone I plan to be in for the day (aerobic endurance, max training etc).
Here is my problem. I am 5'2" and weigh 130... I start at 118 when I started ChaLEAn Extreme and its been going up since. My scale says my body fat is 11.7% . I FEEL like a line backer (LOL). Most of my clothes still fit but I don't FEEL slim & lean.
As far as diet I follow Tosca Reno's Eat CLean Diet, I am lax on tracking, which I think might be part of my problem (too much of good things?). ANy help or encouragement would be SOOOOO appreciated.
1 pound of fat and 1 pound of muscle weigh the same. Its just that 1pound of muscle takes up less space.
