Doing the math: Going from 35% body fat to 26% body fat, and staying 186 pounds, means that I have lost about 17 pounds of fat and replaced it with 17 pounds of muscle. Is that right? Apparently it is.
It's hard to add calories, especially if I want them to be useful ones. I could eat junk food easily. But eat more good protein sources--that's harder. Yesterday I managed 900 calories. And still went over my carbs. And only got 55g protein. Yeah, not my best day. Most days I get enough protein, and go over slightly on carbs. Still working on that.
My arms are so sore today--yesterday's "shock workout" definitely was a shock. I'm recovering quickly, I guess. But it was hard!
