Week 22: My Health and Weight Loss Journey to Get Fit and Lose Weight!


Welcome to week 22 of my Health and Weight Loss Journey! Here is a link to last weeks post if you'd like to check it out.

I have interesting results again this week.

I only managed to workout one day this week (I know, bad!) and it was just a short walk but I lost a few pounds.... Go figure. Everytime I workout all week, I gain weight but I don't lose any fat, and on the weeks that I hardly workout at all, I lose weight and my fat stays the same as well.

Come to think of it, I have been trying to eat more protein but I've been having trouble getting in the amount of protein that I should be eating. I'm trying to get in 40 grams per meal, but it's next to impossible for me as I'm not much of a meat eater at all and I cannot eat soy. I have not been counting carbs or calories, just been trying to reach my 40 grams of protein per meal.

If you want a great resource where you can get your macros calculated for you, check out this website https://jenheward.com/macro-calculator/. It's really easy to use and get your everything calculated based on your input. You just put in your info and it will tell you how many carbs, protein and fat you should have per day/per meal and how many calories you should be having as well. This is also based on your goal, whether it's to lose weight, gain muscle, or maintain. I really recommend that you check out this site. It's easy to use and it could be the reason that I've lost 2.5 pounds this week when I only went for a walk one day!

As I mentioned, I've just been trying to increase my protein at each meal and haven't changed anything else yet. I like to take baby steps. I have never counted calories before, nor do I want to. This is why I have only been trying to count the amount of protein that I'm having at each meal so far. I'll continue this way and see if I continue to lose. If not, I will attempt to count carbs etc.

I really want to join a gym. Not for the cardio machines, I can do that at home. I want to use the weight equipment and see some big changes. There are a few new gyms around me that are only $10 per month. But, I am hesitant as I know that there is a good possibility that I will stop going, as many people do who join gyms. I've belonged to gyms in the past and gone for a while and then stopped, so I'm trying to be realistic with myself.


Here are my workouts for the week:
Day 1- 
Day 2- 32 minute walk
Day 3-
Day 4-
Day 5
Day 6- 
Day 7- 

Weigh in :
Weight: Lost 2.5 pounds! :D
Fat: no change

Note: Last week I worked out 6 out of 7 days and I gained 2 pounds and had no change in body fat!

Let me know what you're doing to stay in shape in the comments.

See you next week!
