Taguchi Beach Christmas 2010
Teppanyaki Christmas 2010
5% Fall Challenge Commitment
I will do ST/PT 3-4x/wk, walk at lunch 5 days/wk, and swim 2-3x/wk. I will follow the clean eating life style. I will record my daily exercise and Living the Good Life Points, and on Saturday mornings I will weigh in and record it. I will check in with my team daily and leave a comment on the Discussion Board (when I have something to say!). I will read and comment on blogs as I have time.
GOAL: Increase strength/endurance/balance...build muscle, lose inches, and lose 9.5 more #...Strengthen my back and legs.
A friend (KADYDIDI) from our quilting guild introduced me to SP. I joined in August 2008, but didn't get around to doing this page until January 2009 when I signed up for the New You Bootcamp Challenge with my second daughter. I have struggled with weight issues for a while (since before the birth of my youngest-now 36). I want to get healthy, which includes losing some weight to help out my arthritis in my back, neck, and feet. I had bilateral total knee replacements almost a year ago. I herniated 3 discs in my lower back causing some nerve damage in February 2010 and am still trying to rebuild my strength. I was eating slow carb, but hit a plateau-so, I switched to clean eating and hope to lose a few more lbs.
To weigh in the normal range on BMI.
To eat to fuel my body.
To swim 2-3 days a week.
To do weight training 3 days a week.
I go to PT, walk, and swim.
I eat protein, veggies, complex carbs and fruit 3 meals/day, 7 days a week.
God has blessed me with 3 children (2 daughters-1 son)and 4 grandchildren (3 g-sons, 1 g-daughter), one great grandson, and Spark People. My team mates so far have been great! I was also blessed to have Christian parents who have gone on to be with the Lord and have 3 great sisters-one a marathon runner (not me!) and one aunt who is 103 (for a few more months).
In my spare time, I quilt, study Japanese language, go to Bible study, sing in the village chorus, teach English to Japanese children and adults, and swim! I also enjoy my beautiful view of the ocean.

Don’t simply exist in this world, but grasp life’s potential by the jacket.
Dare it to be all it can.
Make life historical.. a gripping account of accomplishment.
Make life a mystery.. a challenging, bold adventure.
Make life heartfelt.. an enduring, poetic romance.
Whatever it is you make of your world, live the fairy tale.” - Richelle E. Goodrich
