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.

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!

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!
