Hello! So I'm pretty far into the program, running for 20 minutes straight now at a pace of 5 mph (I'm a treadmill runner), and sometimes I'll throw in an extra 10-15 minutes of running at the end if I'm feeling up for it.
For the past two months, I've been running between 3 and 6 times per week. I've been using MyFitnessPal to track my calories. And I have a food scale so I've been extremely accurate. I live a pretty sedentary lifestyle outside of my workouts (desk job, artist), so on rest days I eat 1500 calories. And on days I work out I used MFP to track the calories burned, and I eat back those calories so I can stay at a 500 calorie deficit everyday.
Oh! And I also alternate between doing squats/lunges/crunches and bicep curls/tricep curls/crunches every other day.
Here are my stats: Female, approx. 180 pounds, 23 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall.
My concern is that over the past two months, I haven't lost any weight at all! In fact, I was around 179 for a long time, and now my scale is saying it's around 181-182. Which can't be possible because I've been working out harder than ever. So am I eating too many calories or not enough? Any insight on this would be so appreciated, I'm so confused.
