Sister Sissy

My name is Dawn, but in my family I was called Sissy. Because all the "Sissy" names I wanted were already taken, I ended up admitting to my date of birth in my name. Ah well, age comes to us all!

SparkPoints: 206,715

Fitness Minutes: 96,466

My Goals:
To lose 50 lbs, and be healthier because of regular exercise.

My Program:
Summer 5%:
Minimum Exercise of some sort for 15 minutes each day.

Personal Information:
I am originally from the US, currently living in Canada on the west coast. I am Franciscan Poor Clare Sister. I had a left knee replacement 6 years ago and waiting for a replacement for the other knee. These metal parts DO NOT make me function (or look) like the old Bionic Woman! At this point the exercise I can do, and mobility I have is limited. I am limited to walking, riding a bike and swimming, so I do have options. I was an Air Traffic Controller in the US Navy until 1981 when I joined the Poor Clares. I am an avid reader, love to cook and bake, as well as enjoy different types of crafts.

Other Information:
Lost 35 lbs the first year I joined, but have put it back on. Must start again!

emoticon for stopping by my gardening blog. Yes, we have tons of lettuce. Didn't grow Kale but was given some by a fellow gardener and I surprisingly liked them. emoticon

Food-for-thought this week:

Diets have a start and a finish, but a lifestyle change will last forever. Imagine yourself where you want to be, and that is where you will go. Being mindful about your eating can help you stay focused on your weight loss plan. As you eat, pay close attention to all your senses. Use your tongue to feel the texture of the food, gauge its temperature, and take a whiff of the aroma. Ask yourself if it is something that is really satisfying your taste buds. Every choice is yours to make!

Try this little "trick" this week . . . the “1 Times 10 Trick”

Find 10 opportunities during the day to raise your heart rate for just 1 minute at a time. You can do anything for only 1 minute, right? You’ll burn as many as 300-400 extra calories a day by doing this little trick alone!!! emoticon emoticon
