I tell clients I work with who feel their eating well and exercising to very often eat more. Up your fat intake. Dont be afraid of olive oil. It contains about 100-150 calories per tea spoon full. When people switch to Primal ways of life they are replacing carbs as a main energy source, with fat. Fat is amuch more efficient longer lasting energy source and contains 9 calories per gram of fat, as opposed to 4 calories per gram of carbs. Your protein looks good.
Like Lewis said, dont think about the scale. Firstly how you feel mentally is what will kepp you going or stop you in your tracks (FYI having a day where you want to quit is ok....but remember why you are here and keep on keeping on).
I strongly endorse Marks LHT programme (from the primal blueprint book)....v low impact, great progressions and I promice you it will make a difference. Many women worry that working out like that will get them big and bulky. it wont, in order to be big and bulky you have to eat to support such growth, this is something you are not doing so you dont have to worry about weight baring exercise. Please remember that some slight increased muscle growth (toninig up) is a good thing. Lean Body Mass (LBM) requires more calories so having more LBM means that even when you are sitting around doing nothing you are burning more calories than someone who has no muscle.
Stay hydrated. This will keep the body functioning as it should, and remember if the body is 70% water, how can we expect our bodies to work at 100% capacity when we dehydrate oursleves.
