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 38). I want to get healthy, which includes losing some weight to help out my arthritis in my back, neck, and feet. I fractured my pelvis in May. I have had cardiac ablation twice! I had bilateral total knee replacements two and a half years ago. I herniated 3 discs in my lower back causing some nerve damage in February 2010 and am still trying to rebuild my strength. (falling apart-right?) I was eating slow carb, but hit a plateau-so, I switched to clean eating and hope to lose a few more lbs.

God has blessed me with 3 children (2 daughters-1 son)and 4 grandchildren (3 g-sons, 1 g-daughter), one great grandson, one great granddaughter, my church family, and Spark People.

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 104 years young.

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.

    Congratulations Mary on your weight loss this week. Even though you were not feeling back to your normal self, a loss is a loss, so good job! I hope you are feeling better by now! It seems unreal that we only have 1 more week after this Saturday. I am definitely not making any progress during this spring challenge, but I am going to try to shake things up a bit and see if I can get unstuck. Good luck for the last weigh-in! emoticon emoticon

    Mary, You do so much for the Firecracker Team and yes, we can all try to help you now. I hope you feel better soon and it's too bad you have to go back to work when you are not even allowed to drive. I went shopping and out to lunch with my granddaughter yesterday and my back, leg, and hip are hurting again today, so I am going to rest and just do my laundry today. I hope you have a good day today and not too much pain. Try not to overdo and you will be good as new soon. I will keep you in my prayers for a speedy recovery. emoticon emoticon emoticon
