@Girlinterrupted I was curious how many grams of protein you were going to have a day. I see now from the graph that it’s 200. It’s amazing that you can get that. How are you going to get it? One thing I’m not really a meat eater. I do want more protein. I’ve been eating frozen chicken to get the 45 g there. ( cooked)
I’m certainly not an athlete or what you would call a weightlifterBut I’m a big proponent of strength training. I have slacked during covid and I’m going to start at the end of this week, to some degree. My body aches for it.
As far as cardio, if you’re lifting any kind of weight, doing your repetitions, not taking hardly a break till you go to the next, you are doing a good bit of cardio work.
Maybe not by the “definition” that somebody wants to define it by but I would say certainly adequate for the health benefit.
I tried my fitness pal a long time ago and got bogged down w them wanting me to scan blueberries when I knew that the calorie count was 100.
I use the free noom now but I don’t think I get any macro counts. I’m certain I don’t because I don’t see them only the three categories.
Maybe I’ll try to switch to the MyFitnessPal. I did try a couple weeks ago and thought I can’t do this. “Aggravating”
I’ve been doing the Noom since January and been happy with it. OK, so my big question is how are you getting the 200 g of protein a day?
I can’t add 650 cal to my diet. I’m happy for you that this will help you reach your goals. I’m excited to watch you do what you are setting out to do and I wish you great success with it.
My normal is to ride indoor bicycle 90min 20-22 miles Several times a week, it’s more leg strength training than cardio for me, walk and do other strength training. For the last couple months I slacked where usually I don’t.
With weights I’ve slacked for awhile because of the lockdowns and where I wanted to go or not go.
I had so much I could’ve done at home… To anyone reading this and wanting to do someone thing with weights, there is so much you can do at home, with items that you have at home.
Motivation is something that a lot of us need at home and that’s the beauty of a thread like this.
I did ride the bike 20 miles last night so that’s good. Not ready to walk a lot because whatever I did to my lower leg. And no planks for right now.
Good luck to each of you on your endeavors.
It’s the best way to stay fit, keep our minds in a good spot, keep our bodies healthy.
Editing to add after I wrote this I reread where you’re talking about some of the supplemental protein. What kinds are good? I have whey factors but it’s Not much protein. What are others you like?
Also I’m very much not that super knowledgeable on this stuff so if i say Something that you think is totally outlandish just say that’s not right, I can take that. No expert here. And reading up above quickly I think that you talking about the strength training HIIT is the same thing as what I was talking about. My point was just lifting the weights without much of a break is going to raise the heart rate a good bit, not enough to negate what you’re trying to do as you well know But certainly enough to get good cardio benefit.
