Losing muscle/weight

So, I am on vacation but have not done much exercise in about a week in terms of weights. I have been running/walking though. I noticed when I cut back on weights, my arms and chest become flabbier, but I also like not feeling so BULKY. I am wondering how to continue my workouts without building muscle too much.

So, pretty much I want a long lean look which I think is my true body shape once I stick to my under 20g diet.

The only reason one feels bulky is if they have too much fat on their body. It is extremely hard to build muscle and especially for women. There are some fortunate ones out there but few. I competed in bodybuilding competitions and to achieve the lean muscular look was difficult for a curvy girl like myself. I relied 90% on my diet, weight training, and cardio to help lean me out just a little more to ready myself for a competition.

I say all of this to tell you go and lift!!! Lift a lot and heavy at times too.

I love weight lifting (fountain of youth) and enjoy a low carb lifestyle.
