I'll take a closer look at my eating, I made an effort to eat higher carbs on training days, but I was alone with two kids during my husbands deployment that I really didn't take the time I should have to track everything. I'm taking a break now due to moving to a new state, and I feel like I'm so bloated and just gross. I always feel better when I'm working out regularly.
It's really hard to not check my body fat % in any way because right now my goal is to get below 20%. I'll just have to buy some calipers and do the test myself. I know I can see changes in my body and my clothes fit better, but I also like knowing that my body looks like X when I'm at Y body fat %
