Hi, Lindsay --
Just a couple thoughts. I missed dairy and reintroduced it and almost immediately (4 days) gained 4 pounds. Went off dairy again and back to meat. Lost it in 2 days and continued losing.
Ah, lifting is easy. Lift your body:-) -- push ups (against the wall, army style, your choice), squats (I love those -- leave you feeling so strong and, last but not least -- PLANKS -- IMHO, that's the greatest lifter. I also hang from the pull up bar -- don't lift yet, but I do hang -- for a few seconds:-)
Yep, deleting dairy and nuts could really do the trick.
1) In the house - You could run in place as fast as you can for a bit. Rest. Repeat twice. This one you can do any time of day.
2) If you're ever feeling really adventurous, take a walk in the dark of night so nobody sees you:-) Do you have a park with dirt paths? Race yourself or someone else to a tree, a bush, etc. Rest. Repeat twice. If that's too scary, do #1. That's my favorite.
I'd keep the fat. When it gets low, I find I get hungry. But play around and see what works for you.
Fruit sometimes is a good thing to lower too.
