Reboot!

I'm 50 and have a sedentary job. A foot injury stopped me going to the gym and the pounds piled on. Now I finally have a sit-stand desk and a big office where I can exercise (hooping & ST!) and keep my bike for quick jaunts. So am rebuilding muscle and getting fit again.

Year 5 mission: Get fitter, get back to 140. Do small bits of exercise in breaks and keep moving. Using Runkeeper and Fitbit.

Year 5 mission: Get fitter, get back to 140. Do small bits of exercise in breaks and keep moving. Using Runkeeper and Fitbit.

Year 4 mission: Cut amount of sedentary time, get to goal weight. Using Fitbit, another blast of The Plan, low carb. Result: After slow start and up-creeping pounds, I got a bigger office, a sit-stand desk and am cycling again.

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 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? :)

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.
