So, I'm done with the donut diet. A week was enough time to realize that 1)I really don't need or want a "fun" diet trick at the moment, and 2)I was kind of doing it just to get a rise out of people, and that's not the kind of person I want to be. Separately from that, I've decided not to push diet so hard right now. Instead, I'll aim to maintain between 150 and 153. I really cannot lift, and I don't see the sense in dieting down and losing all of my muscle. I was hoping my back would be better by now, but it's not. I haven't squatted or lifted anything heavy in two months and this point. And if the stationary bike is the one thing I can do, then I'll ride the darn thing all day if I need a way to train. I am hoping for new answers or ideas at my appointment this week, but I recognize that I may have a much longer rehab than I'd like.
If I end up dropping a little more weight, fine, but that's not the goal. I'm sitting at 152 and leaner than I've been in 7 years. Getting to stage lean for a bikini competition isn't something I need to worry about until I have my back under control and a show on the calendar.
