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.

"No matter what happens, no matter how far you seem to be away from where you want to be, never stop believing that you will somehow make it. Have an unrelenting belief that things will work out, that the long road has purpose, that the things that you desire may not happen today, but they will happen. Continue to persist and persevere." — Brad Gast

Congratulations on being a RWJ&G member of the day!!

You are very smart to get to the gym early, have your pick of the equipment, and be finished early and then you also have a metabolism and energy boost for the day
