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/ 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.

    HI Mary !! Thought I'd drop on in. Is your friend back at home? Is her DIL ok?

    Ahhh to LAZY DAYS !! Well I'll probably manage to do 90 mins or more of exercise. Oh it's SLOWLY through the day !! I do 20 to 30s mins here to there and at times 10 mins, but done several times a day it adds up and when done slowly over the day it keeps me burning off the calories at a steady pace through the day. A WIN WIN !! WOOHOOOO !!!

    Are you settling in for the wintah?

    Thank you for stopping by my page, I had a very nice Christmas, quiet, we talked to all kids and grandkids by phone. I actually stayed off the computer, I think i am addicted to it but it was good and I realized I can live without it. emoticon
