Week One Results

Sunday, January 08, 2012

One week into the New Year and I'm down 2.5 pounds! I'm following a FODMAP Diet...Basically Low Carb/Paleo. Limiting alcohol to once or twice a week, instead of daily ~ LOL!

Decided to get back on Sparkpeople and get serious about tracking my food intake. I noticed today that when I joined Sparkpeople 6 years ago, my starting weight is now my goal weight. Funny how menopause has changed things. My goal back then was to comfortably get into my Size 8 Levi's....Now it's to comfortably get in my size 12 Levi's! Lots of things have changed since 2006. We moved out of our house and into our Motorhome in 2009, and we've been traveling and working in Arizona, Alaska, Kentucky, Georgia, Wisconsin, and now spending the winter in SW Texas. No gym available and I have limited space for workouts, but I'm figuring it out.

I've set my first goal at 10 pounds loss & 4" in my waist measurement. Once I reach that, I'll set a new goal. My workouts are at lest 15 minutes of cardio, 3 times a week. I'm doing Kettlebell workouts. Also doing some yoga and bike riding on days I don't do Kettlebells.

Starting slow, but determined. :)

    Yes SHARONSPARKLE, living in an RV does present some challenges, but I can't keep using that for an excuse. We're out in the middle of nowhere this winter, so I can walk & ride my bike and I have enough room for yoga & a modified kettlebell workout in the rig.

    I've been around SP since 2006 and I agree, our goals do change. I'm glad you're back to tracking and working on your new goals. We are wintering in Mesa, AZ and my home is in MI. It's difficult to lose when living and enjoying the RV lifestyle.

    Welcome back! Those are some great goals to work towards and a good plan you've got to get there! Funny how things change over time isn't it? I remember in high school talking about how I wanted to just drop "one more size to a size 6"... now it's more like drop 5 sizes to a size 14. Ah well, things change.

    Good luck and stay motivated!!
