Newbie with questions
Hello! I'm relatively new to EM2WL. I started a metabolic reset over a month ago. I upped my calories from about 1400 to 1700 and and currently at 1900.

Stats:
Mid 30s
5'6"
136 lbs

I've long considered my "happy weight" to be 130. I'm working on worrying less about the number on the scale and more about body recomposition.

I currently strength train days a week and run 3 days. For strength, I do body pump once per week and at home DVDs such as 21 day fix (just the strength ones) 2 days per week. The running is 10-15 miles/week.

1. How important is it to hit the protein macro? I don't eat a lot of meat so I have trouble getting above 20%. Occasionally I've hit 25%.

2. I'd been holding pretty steady in my reset (134.5ish). Today my weight jumped to 136 and I also got my period. Is it normal to jump at that "time of the month"?

3. I feel like I'm maxing out my at-home workout potential without investing in heavier weights (currently have 5s and 10s). With 2 young kids at home, I can't make it to the gym very often. Any suggestions for a challenging at home workout?
