5% Winter Challenge Commitment
I will do ST/PT 3-4x/wk, walk at lunch 5 days/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. 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 36). I want to get healthy, which includes losing some weight to help out my arthritis in my back, neck, and feet. I had bilateral total knee replacements almost a year ago. I herniated 3 discs in my lower back causing some nerve damage in February 2010 and am still trying to rebuild my strength. I was eating slow carb, but hit a plateau-so, I switched to clean eating and hope to lose a few more lbs.

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, 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 102 (for a few more months).


Other Information:
In my spare time, I quilt, study Japanese language, do an online class, go to Bible study, sing in the village choral group, teach English to Japanese children and adults, and swim! I also enjoy my beautiful view of the ocean.

    "The best things in life aren't things."

    There's nothing wrong with having nice things but the nicest are those relationships we build with others, the love we're able to give and get back freely from those who are dear to our heart, the positive impact we make as we continue to inspire and encourage those around us.. and those who inspire and encourage us back.

    Thanks for being a positive impact on the firecracker's team. Have a great week!

    Endurance isn't just the ability to bear a hard thing but to turn it into glory. - W. Barclay

    We're almost at the halfway point on the 5% challenge and a couple days till we begin racing towards St. Louis, Missouri. Let's stay focused and continue being the fabulous Firecrackers that we are! Have a healthy weekend and a great weigh in.
