    Wait, confused

    Are you doing this in kilograms (KG, or 1000 grams) or pounds (lb, 454 grams)?

    Strong lifts, btw

    Idk these days im running low on calories like today Im only at 1100 cal
    Probably will have a snack before bed bt I dnt knw, even so a snack is like 200 cal anyway and im full from dinner :/ any ideas y this is, like im nt hungry throughout the day??
    Dinner looks amazing! I found a recipe for buffallo chicken, actually, will have to try both it, and yours

    I would assume it's because your body has gotten used to not eating very much. I would strongly recommend increasing your caloric intake owing to both the strength and volume of your workouts, as well as your age,

    Hahaha I get ur confusion, its bec in egypt I used to work with kilograms and here they work with pounds so I myself am still getting the hang of it, I have to always use the calculator :/
    So there are some that are converted and some that are not bt k ill post them in kilograms from nw on and thanx ur lifts r awesome too
    Ya im trying to increase them again bec I tend to actually gain or stall when im low on calories for a long time ( somehow idk y bt I discovered this when I switched to primal )

    Okay this might me abit long bec I have 2 interesting stories to share first was
    In biology the girls decided to arm wrestle so a dude that is with me in gym told them that I would be good competition so I was kinda forced into it
    So tbh I thought it would be easy bt our hands literally weren't moving we stayed at the middle for like 2 min and we were both shaking like crazy and luckily tye bell rang and she asked for a rematch sometime later. I was really amused that a girl I know is strong, she desnt look like she works out bec she is quite heavy bt I ain't judging just astonished really

    The second thing : I wasn't really planning on training today bt my gym teacher decided that she wanted to workout with me today and honestly I can't turn people down , anyway at the end she was talking about how me and her are broad in tye shoulders and that we need to lose some flab. And that she wanted to go on a liquid cleanse so I was like ya I do want to lose the side breasts and she was liie then u should drop the cappuccino u drink after ur workouts (I had told her earlier that I have a habit of drinking cappuccino after my workouts ) in my mind I'm like even in the CW cappuccino wouldn't even be considered fattening .
    Me: bt its just skim milk and coffee and only 100 cal
    Hergives me a wicked smile as if I were a retarded child and still gives no explanation) well u have to drop it
    Me: even so , I dnt eat breakfast and all I had from the morning is cappuccino and 200 g of baked potato
    Her:ya did u eat the sweet potato or the "other" one
    Me: the WHITE one
    Her: and ur surprised why u have fat to lose , the white one turns into sugar and gets u fat and it has more calories
    Me: (decide to ignore arguing since it seemes that CW has eaten her brain out ) ya it was still ~300 cal anyway u know I decided to TREAT myself
    Idk if my sarcasm showed or nt bt oh well

    Nutrition : as u could have noticed , no breakfast
    Coffee and 200g potatoes ( no pic since it was a treat and I'm ashamed )

    After school snack : yogurt with berries and granola (ik ik bt I love it , have it every nw and then aince my mom got a box last week )

    Still didn't have dinner bec went out with family and they ate dinner while I was handing out the newspapers ( today I actually enjoyed it bec the weather was perfect and the ipod was charged :d )

    Your gym teacher is a moron and has no place offering nutritional advice to anyone.

    Liquid cleanse? The hell is that? There is no benefit to doing this. EGrok, enjoy your cappuccino and your white potatoes. What she said is not only bollocks, but hilariously so, gave me a good giggle.

    Keep it up, girl, doing great. ^_^

    Yeah, agreed. Your gym teacher is offensively hilarious as well as stupidly dangerous. Fancy telling a young girl that. Thank god you have sense! (and obviously a better knowledge of nutrition than her, lol)

    Anyway, I know what you mean on the arm-wrestle thing. I have visibly bigger biceps than some people I've arm-wrestled: but damn, once they get going, it's harder than first imagined! I always use the excuse that my triceps are stronger

    Speaking of strength gains: I'd better get my arse to the gym, because your lifts are showing me up

    DAT CC SLUDGE. OMG.

    Your foods are amazing, seriously. Maybe you do need to up the kcal though?
