After having both hips replaced in 2013, I started walking daily since my doctor said I shouldn't run. I lost the 45 extra pounds I was carrying and have continued to do cardio and/or strength-training twice a week. Now I've been on Maintenance for over a year. Logging every day is my key to keeping my weight in check. First it was a chore to walk 50 feet with a walker...I increased it until my daughter PURPLESWIMMER asked me to join her on a 5K. She needed someone to push her wheelchair. ...
After having both hips replaced in 2013, I started walking daily since my doctor said I shouldn't run. I lost the 45 extra pounds I was carrying and have continued to do cardio and/or strength-training twice a week. Now I've been on Maintenance for over a year. Logging every day is my key to keeping my weight in check. First it was a chore to walk 50 feet with a walker...I increased it until my daughter PURPLESWIMMER asked me to join her on a 5K. She needed someone to push her wheelchair. Now we have about six races a year, and have increased the distance gradually. I've signed on as the Leader for two teams..the Olympia WA Spark! and Spin Me a Yarn. It's my way of giving back to SparkPeople and keeping me motivated. I love crafts in almost any form. My newest skillset are in spinning yarn and weaving fabric.
