Swimming Along...

May 2010
Spark has been a really great motivator for me since May 2008. I lost more than 60 pounds!! Hooray for me! But then I had surgery in December 09 and again in April this year and was not able to do exercise as in the past. This, along with personal lack of commitment, resulted in adding back 20#. Yikes!

Gotta get back on track, even if I cannot exercise the way I want. So I am committing to tracking all my food again, keeping the salt intake down and the water intake up and eating all those yummy summer fruits and veggies! And hopefully I can get back into the therapy pool again for some kind of exercising! Good luck to me!!

My Goals:
1. Lose at least 5# per month.
2. Increase movement on a daily basis.
3. Monthly increase weight loss goal, instead of looking at the big picture!
4. Reach first weight goal by August 2010

My Program:
1. Drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day.
2. Cutting out processed foods with lots of salt and keeping sodium intake under 2500.
3. Eating 5+ fruits and veggies per day.
4. Strength exercises daily x 30 minutes.
5. Keep cholesterol intake under 300.
6. Think positive thoughts about progress achieved and learn from the little setbacks that occur.
7. Don't give up...don't look back.
8. Get rid of the clothes that don't fit any more. I won't need them!!

Personal Information:
I'm a transplant to SD from Niagara Falls area, living here in South Dakota for over 20 years now and loving it! I have a son and daughter, both married and living in state also. And, of course, three terrific grandsons! What a blessing! I'm also a PW (you other PWs know what I mean!!), which presents its own challenges from time to time.

Other Information:
I love to SWIM and also READ(what would you expect from someone who works in a library?)...mostly I read mysteries, especially by Dick Francis, Dorothy Gilman, Agatha Christie, Margaret Truman, Sue Grafton, Anne George and Joan Hess.
If I could read a book while swimming, life would be great!
