Reboot!

I'm 50 and my job means a very sedentary lifestyle. A foot injury stopped me going to the gym and the pounds have piled on. So a reboot is due! And a quest is on to find ways of working that aren't so a**e-bound. My Spark history is below as a sobering reminder.

Year 4 mission: (underway) Cut amount of sedentary time, get to goal weight. Using Fitbit, another blast of The Plan, low carb. This didn't work, so *reboot* underway.

Year 4 mission: (underway) Cut amount of sedentary time, get to goal weight. Using Fitbit, another blast of The Plan, low carb. This didn't work, so *reboot* underway.

Year 3 mission: Find more energy, get back to thin. Shorter, more frequent exercise, not so tiring. Lyn-Genet's The Plan, cut out most caffeine and dairy, more fruit, water. Result: Lost a few pounds, definitely more energy. A month working overseas set me back - need to crank up again!

Year 2 mission: Find more energy and overcome natural sloth tendencies. Gave up booze, 3x 1/2 hour cardio a week, started running and hooping. Result: weight gain but greater strength and energy.

Year 1 mission: lose muffin top, get stronger and fitter. Joined the gym, 3x 1 hour cardio a week, cal counting. Result: lost weight, gained strength, energy still low.

Hi Jules, I just logged on to Spark for the first time since arriving in Europe - I've now been in Paris for a week and a half, in the south of France for a month before that. Wow, it is just marvellous to be here. And I am walking so much that I can eat cheese and drink wine and not gain weight! Ha!
Thanks for thinking of me! That goodie arrived when I was getting ready to bounce onto the plane so I never got to answer.
I will be in the UK for two weeks in early June, visiting cousins, one set of whom (which?) live near Liverpool. Is that anywhere near you? I'd love to rendez-vous if it were to work out...send me a spark mail? emoticon Sara

Thank you for stopping by my page! Hoe all is well with you and that nasty cough is finally gone. Good luck moving office!!
I'm mostly following the Plan and it helps me stay in a good weight range... I'd like to be 3-4 pounds lighter to get back to last year's "normal" but I do realize life has to be lived as well.
Good luck getting the gym first thing!

Thanks for stopping by my page! I hope all's well with you! I haven't felt the best this week, had a slight fever and just generally not feeling well. But I'm getting over that, and I just finished about an hour of exercise so that must mean I've turned the corner! I haven't been able to get out on the bike yet. :( We still have ice and snow on our road. As soon as that's gone, I will be out there! So mostly I'm doing the Leslie Sansone workouts and changing them up so I don't get into quite so big of a rut. :) Spring has to come soon, right? :)

I missed hearing from you! So glad you recovered from your foot injury and now you can start getting back with your regular activities.
