I want to be a lesser me!

I turned 50 in June 2007 and I need to get rid of this middle age spread. I am not happy with the current state of my metabolism, weight, shape or muscle tone. I am taking steps to improve these areas.

Our new winery is up and running. Check us out at www.tigermountainwinery.com

SparkPoints: 14,403

Fitness Minutes: 8,309

My Goals:
Walking 5-8 miles/week

Drink WATER

Stay focused


My Program:
Cardio 30 minutes 3 x weekly

Strength training 3 X weekly

Walking every work day at least 20 minutes and using the stairs at work.

Personal Information:
I live outside Seattle and work in the downtown area. I have about a 60 minute commute every day depending on bus schedules and traffic. SInce I work 9-hour days this really cuts in to my available free time.

I have done really well with low carb eating in the past, but my husband was sick of it, so I stopped. I tried the lower fat method - but it just doesn't work for me. I started Atkin's Induction again April 16, 2007 and immediately lost 10 lbs. I need to figure out a way to get a workout in my busy day and not drop the ball elsewhere.

My job keeps me pretty sedentary - I review patient data for cancer clinical trials. I am at the computer all day. This with my age and lack of regular exercise are adding inches to my mid-section.


Other Information:
On top of our 'day jobs' my husband and I just started a winery in our garage. This is another little project that is eating away at my free time. We have been making wine for about 7 years and were bonded by the Feds in 2006 to go commercial. It's exciting and a little scary at the same time.

Hi there, thanks for your comment; I eat a ton of soy products mainly because I do not eat meat. So burgers, sausage, milk in smoothies, etc.
I am going to go a couple of weeks without soy and then see if I can add anything in.
How did you find out you couldnt eat some of the products? ...by just noticing how you felt after you ate?

Hey Tracy, thanks for the congrats. I do appreciate it. I am so pleased to be on the downward track again. I find it so easy to maintain on low carb. But I am hoping to lose a good bit more yet.

Hugs Wispy.

Hi Tracy thanks for the comment. I'm doing the same diet as my mum at home as she is doing the low carb outside of Spark, she's not much of a computer wiz. Thanks for the tips and info! I'll be sure to check it out!

Hey Tracy,

I'M HEEEEEERRRRRRE. Just reached town today.

So what does your typical workout routine look like? Let's go walk around town.

I am heading out of town for work today and will be back Friday.

Hope you have a good rest of the week.

Hey. Just checking in to see if you are ready. Hope to be in your 190 town next week.

When I get there let's go for a walk and check out what's in the store windows. I need a new pair of shoes. :-)

Hope all is well with you!
