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.

    Thanks for reading my blog & your concern. It really means a lot to know that so many people care. I have my diagnostic nerve block in the AM & I'm really nervous. I'll update my groups once I know something.

    Hi, I see you are posting your "mileage" in the Swimmers team. The computer will accept decimal equivalents of partial miles, so if you post .75 that will be 3/4 of a mile....Hope that helps. Carol (CMY)
