Week 21: My Health and Weight Loss Journey to Get Fit and Lose Weight!

Welcome to week 21 of my Health & Weight Loss Journey! Here is a link to last weeks post if you'd like to check it out.

I forgot to weigh in Friday morning so I did this morning and I'm perplexed once again at the results.

Everytime I take time off from working out I lose weight. And, everytime I workout faithfully, I gain weight but the fat percentage stays the same. So, it's not like I am gaining muscle and losing fat. Maybe one of my readers who has some knowledge in this area can explain this to me. I just don't get it!

I worked out 6 out of 7 days this week. I did a mix of walking, my regular weight routine (posted below), and a workout DVD.

+ 15 reverse lunges, 15 reverse angled lunges + 15 walking lunges

Above weight routine is done with 8 lb weights

I also continue to use the Pedometer App (pictured above)

Here's what I did this week...

Here are my workouts for the week:
Day 1- 10 minutes on stepper / weight routine
Day 2- 35 minute walk
Day 3- 32 minute walk / weight routine
Day 4- 43 minute walk
Day 5- 10 minutes on stepper / weight routine
Day 6- 20 minute walk / No More Trouble Zones DVD: 10 minute whole body / 10 minute stretch
Day 7- no workout

Weigh in :
Weight: gained 2 pounds!
Fat: no change

This is getting really frustrating- not seeing any results. I am tempted to drop everything and just do yoga. This happened to me in the past, where I gained weight while sweating my but off doing Turbo Jam everyday for months, only to gain weight and fat. I gave up and did yoga and started to lose weight right away. Maybe that's what my body wants. I'll have to try to incorporate more yoga back into my routine and see what happens. But, I don't want to give up lifting weights as I want to build muscle since we tend to lose that as we get older.

Let me know in the comments what you are doing to stay in shape!

See you next week!
