I celebrated my 1 Year Sparkversary on April 9, 2010 !
I've been enjoying belonging to SparkPeople, and interacting with
my Spark-friends . I also enjoyed discovering " my " sport , which
turns out to be swimming . Swimming wins out, because it is always
cool in the Pool ! With my MS , I sometimes have trouble walking ,
because I get over-heated...! But that doesn't happen with swimming .
My stints in the Pool are always over an hour and a half . I believe that
it was this lengthy swim that helped reduce my high cholesterol .
My swim is not geared around the clock ; rather , it is always exactly
60 lengths of my Pool , which is 1 kilometer . I chose this distance when
I was completing the Olympic Torch Relay Challenge, which started last
November. I wanted to be able to at least contribute a kilometer to the
tally . I changed my 50 length swim( only 0.884 kilometer) to a 60 length
swim , for that reason .
But I digress !
I should be focusing my discussion on my loss of 10 pounds.
I guess I'm not that excited any more , because I still have 40 more to go .
I know that will come in due time , if I keep exercising , and eating mindfully !
