5% Winter Challenge Commitment
I will do ST/PT 3-4x/wk, walk at lunch 5 days/wk, and swim 2-3x/wk. I will follow the clean eating life style. I will record my daily exercise and Living the Good Life Points, and on Saturday mornings I will weigh in and record it. I will check in with my team daily and leave a comment on the Discussion Board (when I have something to say!). I will read and comment on blogs as I have time.

GOAL: Increase strength/endurance/balance...build muscle, lose inches, and lose 9.5 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 38). I want to get healthy, which includes losing some weight to help out my arthritis in my back, neck, and feet. I fractured my pelvis in May 2017. I 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 clean eating and hope to lose a few more lbs.


Member Since: 8/31/2008

Fitness Minutes: 58,954

My Goals:
To weigh in the normal range on BMI.

To eat to fuel my body.

To get stronger and have better balance so I can stop falling!

To swim 2-3 days a week.

To do weight training 3 days a week.


My Program:
I go to PT, walk, and swim.

I eat protein, veggies, complex carbs and fruit 3 meals/day, 7 days a week.




Personal Information:
God has blessed me with 3 children (2 daughters-1 son)and 4 grandchildren (3 g-sons, 1 g-daughter), one great grandson, one great granddaughter, my church family, and Spark People. My team mates so far have been great! I was also blessed to have Christian parents who have gone on to be with the Lord and have 3 great sisters-one a marathon runner (not me!) and one aunt who is 104 years young.


Other Information:
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.

    Small habits repeated daily can go a very long way.

    For example, walking for just a mile a day may not seem much at first.

    But, if you walked a mile every day for a year, by the end of the year you would have walked 365 miles...in ten years you would have walked 3,650 miles.

    Imagine the benefits to your body, your respiratory system, your heart, your muscles, your joints and your weight, if you were to walk just one mile a day.

    Welcome every morning with a smile. Be a self-starter.
    Let your first hour set the theme of success and positive action to echo through your day.
    You were not born to fail.

    I’m thinking about being a healthier, more caring and supportive person…who weighs just a bit less !

    How about you – about what are you thinking ?

    Remember how far you’ve come,
    Not just how far you have to go.
    You may not be where you want to be,
    But neither are you where you used to be!

    Whatever this week throws at you….you’ve got this!
