    Yes, Elaine, this is great. Dusting ranks right up there with all the things we do over and over--never an end in sight or finish to be had. Thanks!!

    Well, I cheat; I get my caretaker to do the dusting (and that is mainly because I have a dust allergy). emoticon

RAISE THE BAR ~

Friday, October 08, 2010




So much to see and so little time!!!

I want to commit to being more actively pursuing my walking. I don't like recording less than 5,000 steps 'Sedentary' and am aiming for at least 'Somewhat Active' which is 7,500~9,999 steps on my pedometer.

Long term goal is an 'Old Order Amish Women' with less than 4% body fat ~ 14,000 plus.

The Parkinson's walk brought us up to 'Active' for we put on 12,500 steps and that was a 5K (3 miles).


Sedentary...............less than 5,000 steps/day
Low Active..............5,000-7,499 steps/day
Somewhat Active....7,500-9,999 steps/day
Active....................10,000-12,500 steps/day
Highly Active...... ...12,501+ steps/day
Old Order Amish women with very low, 4% obesity:
..............................14,000+ steps per day

I found this steps chart on a dear friend's SP...thanks Carol.

    FEARLESSLIFE, This was a walk for Parkinson's to raise money for a cure and for care. This precious lady was one with parkinsons and the doll she is carrying 'Annie' was hers as a little girl. She is Gramma Annie...and quite a sweetheart. Her husband was faithfully attending to her. She consented to my taking her picture. My next blog has the details. Thanks for your comment Carol! Elaine

Is that you in the gown? You didn't say what events these are at or what's the deal.

I'm working up to getting up to 10K steps via the The Step Team on my SparkPage; it's an incremental program where you add 500 steps a week. You should join us! 10K is my first goal, I want to get up to 6 mi a day eventually.

SOLE SUPPORT FOR PARKINSONS ~ DEBRA'S PEARLS Do 5K

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

We, all nine of us headed for the 5K raining heavily on our windshield of the old van with lunch in tow, rain gear, rain hats & umbrellas and water bottles . I Whispered a prayer for the rain to stop. As we got to the Willamette Park you will never guess...the rain stopped!! Praises to God for favoring everyone on this day. We were getting pumped now. Our shirts said Debra's Pearls with her pilatis studio name on the back:
PILATIS FOR PARKINSONS & PEARL PILATIS STUDIO (Pilatis & Gyrotonic).
Debra after raising $1100 for Sole Support of Parkinsons to search for the cure...She gathered her team: Most of us are here. One family of four came later.
We begin on our journey down the riverfront trail with the Willamette on the right. Overcast but no rain & a beautiful cool day.



Debra & one of a Blazer basketball player Brian Grant. Both suffer with parkinsons.
Titus gets a ride from mommie Sharma.
My gd Josie who is eighteen.

Debra's boys & my 1st gs Drew, his friend & gs Quinn.

There we go hitting the trail.

Adelaide my gd said that is a good photo op.
Debra is an amazing person, having parkinsons has not stopped her. She has made the best of it, trained to become a palatis instructor knowing the benefits of activity and that it is very good for a person afflicted with the disease. She now is certified and has her own pilatis studio in the Pearl in Portland.

We are getting into the homeward stretch!!


Jeshua said, "ALL RIGHT!! WE FINISHED!!!!!

THE SLIM JIMS MUSIC WAS REFRESHING!!


OUR MISSION:
To empower individuals to meet the challenges of living with Parkinson's disease through information, education, personal support, and advocacy for a cure.

SOLE SUPPORT FOR PARKINSON'S WAS TRULY SUCCESSFUL RAISING $160,463 TOTAL FOR RESEARCH AND THE CURE.

    Elaine, thank you so much for writing this blog. What an amazing amount of sponsorship you all raised!!
Debra is indeed an amazing lady, like her mum, I can see she is determined to get her message across and I wish her every success and blessings. She is doing an excellent job in helping sufferers with her Pilatis Studio...I was wondering what sort of exercise that was, now I know.

    I agree we must pray for our land and it's leaders and for ourselves and the part that each person no matter what race or religion they our takes in it .God is a forgiving God and will forgive time and time again but is our faith as a nation that strong I would pray and hope so . That God will chose our nation to be the one that will rise above all others.....Believing in God is the answer . Great video thanks for sharing .
Take care . God bless. emoticon emoticon emoticon
