Your caloric intake looks fine. If you are working out harder though, muscles get little tears and retain water to help them heal. This can show on the scale as a temporary gain, small loss or no loss till the muscles get used to the new work out. Google "why the scale lies" for insight in to water weight fluctuations.

I agree with Suzi161 on this. Once you stop being sore the water weight will drop!

You'll get there! You are working hard and eventually your body will have to drop those pounds.
