Getting older can be AWESOME!!

Hi thanks for stopping by .....

In my 20's 30's 40's and early 50's I never once exercised!!!Sparkpeople changed my life. I had been bedridden for 12 years due to illness, in turn which lead to an increase of weight by 60 lbs. I needed to get back on my feet and healthy..... googled weight loss program and here my journey began.

I lost 50 lbs. in the first 3 years looking good and feeling great ..... then I accidently injured my knee, not able to exercise as much ...

I lost 50 lbs. in the first 3 years looking good and feeling great ..... then I accidently injured my knee, not able to exercise as much awaiting for knee surgery which took 2 years. Gained back 20 lbs. (ouch) I'm slowly getting back on track since surgery in April. At 62 it seems so much more difficult to loose the weight....... sooooooo S L O W !

I will conquer this by my Spark Anniversary in May .... I refuse to give up ........ I'm stubborn :D

My Program:
Spark Activity Tracker
Polar HR Monitor
Fitbit Charge HR :0)

1. I weigh, track and log everything I eat and drink. I enter all Nutritional Info. for every grocery item I purchase. It made it so much easier for tracking.

Eliminate processed foods as much as I can

Ensure that all necessary Nutrients are met (i.e. fibre, calcium, sodium, etc.)

Drink 8-10 cups of water daily

Daily Calorie Differential of 500

2. Exercise 7 days/wk (unless I'm ill) which includes:

5-6 days a week 2 hours at the gym at 5:00 am (I love this time hardly anyone there, I get to try out different things) 1 hour of cardio and 1 hour of Strength Training.

1 day a week 2 hours at home with a project ..... i.e. dancing, kettle bell, cleaning and stepping etc. I get bored easily so I need to change it up in at least 10 min. intervals.
