No problem! Glad to help, and keep me updated on your journey too!
Thanks for the feedback! I know I definitely need to chill out about trying to lose weight, and over the last few months I've gotten better about it so hopefully I'll reach a point soon where I can truly accept myself! I think I will try a bit harder now to just focus on nourishing my body, and view food as fuel that should be enjoyed, not feared. Thanks again for the input sakura girl!!

It was definitely a hormonal thing, though. It was like my mind was just searching for something to be upset about.
It's ironic, because I got a HUGE pay raise, more than the other analysts in my program, and I'm at the most coveted office to work at. Luckily I am only in this position for another few months, and I can move elsewhere.
I don't know what was wrong with me. My period came. But usually I eat tons way before it comes. Uh.....
In the morning I ate a cup of bone broth, 1 lb of lamb meat, and 1/2 lb trail mix. Lunch was coffee with cream. Gym sucked because my back started hurting after I tried some front squats.
Front squats: 45x1x5, 95x3x5, 100x1x5
Back squat: 95x1x1, 135x1x5, 155x1x1
OHP: 45x1x5, 65x1x5, 70x3x5
Dinner was 6 oz almonds, another 3 cups of bone broth (ugh my cramps were REALLY rough), 1 lb sweet potatoes, and some carrots. Calories 4000.
Walked around for 3 miles. Fasted for 21 hours and ate dinner shortly after my 5 min sprint at 7. Dinner was a can of salmon with a bunch parsley, roasted carrots with sour cream, some kimchi, some seaweed, and a bunch of almonds. Calories 2950.
Walked around for about 2.5-3 miles. Fasted 21 hours and ate dinner of crab, abalone, spring mix, papaya, and a shitton of choc covered macadamias. Home sweet home. Calories 2400.

Slept more than 8 hours. Ate breakfast of some eggs, some mango, and 3 oz chocolate covered macadamia nuts. Walked around about 1-2 hours in a mountainous area. Not too much hiking. Dinner was a bunch of sweet potatoes, lamb meat, sliced ribeye, shrimp, some bamboo and bok choy, and 6 oz more of chocolate covered macadamia nuts. Calories 3700.
Slept for 9 hours. 22 hour fast. Walked for about 2 miles during the day. About 19 hours in, I went to the gym.

I need to get used to them straps. I couldn't do a 225 with them....
Food afterward consisted of 1 lb sweet potato, 2 eggs, some leftover beef and lamb and bok choy and bamboo. And the last of my chocolate covered mac nuts... Calories 1600.
