Week Two

Come throughhhhh, week two!!!

For some reason, I feel like these weeks are M-O-V-I-N-G honey! They’re going by so fast, and I’m not complaining AT ALL.

This week, I’ve learned that the scale is not my friend. I used to be so worried about what the number says, and just simply disregarding how I feel. I mentioned in week one, water weight will make you feel bloated, and PMS will make your body feel different as well. #TheyMatter

So this week, my body feels SO much better. I feel lighter, I feel better, I have more energy, and I just feel GOOD. And to me, that’s all that matters (for now).

Yes, I did set a goal to lose -10lbs by the end of this fitness challenge, AND I PLAN TO. But, weighing myself every morning is something I’ve learned not to do.

This week I learned MACROS matter too. Macros, short for macronutrients (proteins, fats, and carbohydrates) are the basis of all calories you consume. You can calculate your macronutrients here.

  CARBS PROTEIN FAT
GRAMS per day 96g 155g 60g
GRAMS per meal 19.2g 31g 12g
CALORIES per day 387 cals 620 cals 543 cals
CALORIES per meal 77.4 cals 124 cals 108.6 cals

I’m currently trying to follow a 1550 calorie meal plan, HIGH PROTEIN/LOW CARBS, and even though the calculator advised I eat 155grams of protein per day, an easier calculator is 1+ gram of protein per each pound you weigh. So I’m aiming for 145-150grams of protein per day.

Hol’up… This may seem like a lot of information, but it’s not, trust me 😉 

I also realized that the “gallon of water per day” thing GETS SO MUCH EASIER! I’m able to drink even more than a gallon now and I’m not rushing to the bathroom every 30 minutes either (praise heem ’cause that was getting sooo annoying)! I’m sure your body will adjust too, so hang in there… it gets easier.

I’m really happy about my progress this week, and I’m just looking forward to week threeeeee!

  1. […] okay. If you are still hungry, add a “snack” or “detox” smoothie option. Learn how to calculate your macronutrients here: For easy protein calculations, try to eat .8g per pound you weight. I weigh about 144-145lbs […]
