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: 223,330

Fitness Minutes: 105,291

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!

Question for you - on the Champions wall post you mentioned 3 bonus points for the team. How did you earn the bonus points and where do these get logged? Thanks, Lorrie

Little mini-challenge for you this week . . . Try this somewhat "challenging exercise" whenever you visit your homepage:

Put your fists up, shift your weight from side-to-side, while in a semi-squat. Alternating your body weight from side-to-side while moving down & up (squatting in a “U” shape) is a great way to strengthen the muscles of your inner & outer thighs—while getting your heart rate up a little. Add a little speed (and perhaps a punch) & watch your heart rate climb!

GIVE YOURSELF a little "Pep-Talk" today! But this time, talk to yourself using "the second person" (like "I know YOU can do it," instead of "I know I can do it"). We have been conditioned our whole life to perform for others--receiving support & directions from family & teachers when we were growing up, so we respond more positively. Talk to yourself like you would talk to your dearest friend . . . with encouragement, compassion, love & support. emoticon
