I check you food diary every once in awhile, how the heck can you gain weight on 1200 to 1500 calories a day, doing the workouts that you do???
You eat soooo good.
I would think your metabolism would be running all the time.
On even 2000 calories a day, you wear off so many more with your intense workouts??

Thanks for the comment, anonymous. I know that I didn't gain fat, I know that I need to eat 3000 extra calories to gain a pound of fat, I know that the pasta carbs are making my body say 'oh, she finally ate some processed carbs, lets hold on to water and fill her glycogen stores', and I know that the sodium was high and the sugar bloats me now. BUT I still must say, to see the scale increase bugs me. It will be down tomorrow as I didn't have my usual popcorn at the TWINS game, that would make me crazy as I know I would be holding a few pounds water weight tomorrow morning from it. My body has totally adapted to running 100 miles a week and eating 1500-2000 calories a day. To lose weight I need to run HIIT (high intensity interval training) or the stair stepper, something my body is NOT adapted to. Then I usually lose. For now, I'm happy maintaining right where I am. Although, I'm anxious for my Precision Nutrition information to arrive so I can enjoy something new. I am thinking a nice 10 pound loss in the 16 week challenge might be cool. Didn't I just say I was happy maintaining? Yeah, sure, whatever...
