I don't quite feel as good and lean as I did pre-Christmas, however. I think it's partly because I've been having a few too many little treats on my feed days (even if I stay under my TDEE, I think too many treats are still not necessarily a good thing). I think for some reason my digestive system has been struggling to readapt to the system. No idea why... might have just been a bit of a fluke last week and we'll see how I do by the end of this week.

Then had two healthy chicken wraps for dinner (about...

I know that I'm in this for the long haul, I really dont want it to turn in to some weight loss obsessional...
