It’s been awhile since I’ve written, but I am happy to report that I am back in my full workout mode after I sustained a mid-summer rotator cuff injury. I am working out whenever possible during the week and alternating between running/walking on a treadmill or lifting weights.
I am pleased to report that since I announced the creation of the MSNJ “Fit Doc” Challenge I have lost seven pounds. And, while I still have a long way to go in accomplishing my goal of reducing my body mass index (BMI) from 28% to 23%, I have seen real results in my weight loss and can feel the difference as I go about my daily routine.
So now that the summer is over and kids are back in school and our hectic routines start again for the Fall, it is important to remember to exercise regularly. Make it a part of your daily routine.
I encourage all of you to get involved and get moving. I am proud to highlight some of the accomplishments of our member-physicians.
- Dr. Mary Campagnolo, MSNJ’s President-elect, will be participating in the Bike MS: City to Shore Ride 2011, a bicycle ride from Cherry Hill to Ocean City, NJ in support of finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. This is her eighth year participating in the event.
