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.

Thanks for checking in / up on me. I've been "lurking" on Spark - reading a lot but not saying much. So - I'm here, just being quiet for now. Hope all is well with you.

Thank you for commenting on my blog. It will take a few winters with heavy snow in the high country to get the lake back to normal. We did have some rain but as long as the water is being let out at the other end it doesn't help much.
How have you been?

Back with the program too! Made broccoli soup for lunch.
I think the reason for soaking the flax is to get the flavors of the spices infused and the baking is for texture?? I need to look into that some more.

Howdy!! I've been missing in action for a while and gaining weight as a result. But I'm making my way back to Sparkpeople and just checking in to let you know! I've missed the support and the community. If I didn't know before, I CERTAINLY know now that I NEED Sparkpeople to succeed in this journey. I'm sorry I haven't been around to support YOU along yours. But I'm back now! To the future!
