I will do Rehab/PT 2x/week. I will walk 20 min/day (outside if not raining. I will check in with my team at least 3 X a week.

GOAL: Increase strength/endurance/ muscle, lose inches, and lose 15 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 41). I want to get healthy, which includes losing some weight to help out my osteoporosis/compression fractures in my back, neck, and feet. I fractured my pelvis in May 2017, my right knee cap and right elbow in July2020 and have had cardiac ablation twice! I had bilateral total knee replacements in December 2014. 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 low carb, but hit a plateau-so, I switched to a different style and hope to lose a few more lbs. I am now following an elimination diet to remove inflammatory foods.

My team mates so far have been great!

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. Most of these activities have been curbed by state of emergency from COVID restrictions:(
