Much of that weight loss is probably water weight loss. The diet change will often result in less water retention. As your body adjusts to the new diet it will balance out the water a bit and you might even see a minor reversal of that 8 pound loss. Just stick with it.
I didn't realize the diet would effect water retention.
The first day was back, butt, legs and abs.
My second workout was arms, chest, uppper back, and abs.
Question: Unlike my err butt and thighs burning for three days, there was no pain in my arms at all. There was a little tenderness in my chest. This was even though I did three sets of 10 and most areas were burning before the end of the last set. Does this mean that I didn't start out with heavy enough weights? Should I bump it up a little or a lot at a time in this case?
I have a lot of weight to burn off, 48 pounds. So I have changed my 13 kilometer daily run to a 20 minute intervals run. After 20 minutes I was more buggered than after doing 13Ks anyways.
Question: Will the weight circuit combined with the intervals cardio burn the 48 off quickly. I added weight training because the 13ks weren't doing much for weight loss any more.
Also I have been eating six small meals a day. With a Whey, banana, and milk shake right after the circuit. I even added those carbs back into my diet. So I think my diet is good.
Icky and kind of sticky Question: I never used to stink when I sweat. Now I sweat heaps all day and it smells awful. Is this normal, the smell that is?

when learning to ride a bike you don't do it once a week "to recover", you do it everyday...perfect practice makes perfect...you want to get good at something (and that's what we do when wee train), do it often
