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!

Member Since: 1/4/2010

SparkPoints: 206,175

Fitness Minutes: 96,261

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!

Little mini-challenge for you this week! Hopefully, you’ll be reminded of this everyday—when you check your sparkpage:

“Get Up & Move”—at least once an hour. Studies show that hours of inactivity change the way your body processes glucose & fat. Continuous sitting causes metabolic changes that increase blood sugar levels & decrease the amount of fat used for fuel. Both then cause an increase in fat storage—not what you want to happen! Let’s “Get Up & Move” throughout this 5% Challenge!! We can do this, my friends! emoticon emoticon

Sharing another little tid-bit I read (in Womans World Magazine):

Drinking tomato juice is an easy, convenient, inexpensive way to get lycopene, selenium, and Vitamins A & C into your diet. Tomatoes contain many powerful compounds, and the bottled or canned juice, which is made from cooked tomatoes, makes these compounds more readibly absorbed in our bodies. Plus the thickness of the juice is very satisfying & makes you feel full.

Hint: Champions, if you are doing the Wk #4 Challenge - EAT A RAINBOW, think RED . . . check! emoticon emoticon
