Being over 50...

Monday, May 13, 2013

So I have started reading the Spark Solution and was all excited to find out how I was going to be able to drop 2 pounds a week, that amount being due to the fact that my daughter's wedding is fast approaching and I did an excellent job of procrastinating on my weight loss. Anyway, I get to a part in the book where it states that certain reasons may change what we could possibly lose a week. Yep, you guessed it...one of them was being a woman over 50! Ugh. I wish I hadn't read that.

Sooo...the challenge for me is to do my best to prove that statistic wrong. No, I am not going to do anything "fad" like. Just really focus on what the book, and SparkPeople, have already told me is the best way to live a happy life and that is to focus on a healthier life.

So I did a short run/walk session this morning indoors and felt pretty good. I also did some Habitat construction on Saturday and although I still had issues getting up from my butt at times I felt pretty good overall and proud. I think I will do some more this week. Did you know that doing construction burns a whole lotta calories?? I was at it for over a couple hours and when I looked it up saw it was over 600!! Burning all that and doing it for a good cause...yeah even over 50 somethings can have something to feel pretty good about.
