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: 217,865

Fitness Minutes: 102,761

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!

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

Little mini-challenge for you: Try an Interval Walk or two this week (or adapt it whatever your cardio preference is). Exercise as fast as your can for just 30 seconds, followed by 1 minute at a steady, recovery pace, then repeat as many times as time permits. This type of "interval workout" intensifies your workout, so you don't have dedicate that much of your day to working out, but you still get the same benefits (if not more, because HITT workouts are a excellent addition to your workout regimen).
