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.

Wow, thanks for the party! The gang threw one for me here but rats, no champers...probably better for me that way! I'm in pretty good spirits and the handoff is going well but I know I'll have a letdown next week when I finally get through the last little job that I need to help with. Boo hoo. Poor useless me. But that won't last long, I'm sure. Did you ever send me your email? By Sparkmail? I don't want to lose touch with you, next year I WILL be in the UK! Not sure exactly when. emoticon

Thanks for commenting on my feed - I got the pound sign :)
How have you been?
I see you're back to flax... I have a bowl soaking ready to go into the oven.
Have a great day!

emoticon Hope July is treating you well! I'm two weeks away from the BIG DAY. I just hate cleaning out old stuff but it will be lovely when it is DONE!
Would be grand to meet you when I am in the UK next year! Not totally sure when that will be but sometime between mid-March and mid-June. emoticon

Thank you for the birthday wishes on my blog. I love sweet potatoes but I like them best grilled with olive oil and italian herbs :)
Have a great week!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yeah my depression/anxiety comes and goes - it came last year in December and hung around through my injury in March. April and May were better, but after 12 weeks of not working out I realized that I was absolutely frozen when the moment to go to the gym completely on my own came around. It took me 2 hours and a blog, but I did eventually get myself there and did 30 minutes on the elliptical.

How are you doing? Still on a booze hiatus?
Is the weather good over there in your corner of the world?

Thanks for always being so supportive and encouraging.
