Dreaming in the desert ...

I share my home and life with 4-footed friends - 3 cats (Sahara, Starkist & Shadowspawn), & 3 dogs. My 3 little dogs are smallest dogs I''ve ever had - Shalako the Pomeranian, Samurai the Papillon, and the newest one, Spartacus the rescued chihuahua. We''ve been walking about 30 minutes to 2 hours daily.

I got the lap-band surgery in Nov 06. So far, I''ve lost over 120 pounds (3/9/10). Recently changed my end goal to even less. (155). Sigh ...

I''m an RN and work 12 hour night-shifts - boy, does that throw your metabolism off! I have things planned in the daytime for my days off, and have to sleep in the daytime on work days. All the tips for improving sleep say "set a routine and stick to it". Uh, huh - that''ll work.

My Goals:
Mini goal - I'm gonna bust thru 200 by the end of July!! DID IT!!! 7/13/09

Finally made 2 separate week weigh-ins of less than 175 - yeah! 3/14/13

Get in shape so my knees don't keep stressing.

Guess I'd better give up on retiring any time soon!

My Program:
Walking my little dogs every day. Throwing in strength exercises while I wait for the sniff breaks for them.


Personal Information:
Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
Groucho Marx

If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat.
Mark Twain

I always like a dog so long as he isn't spelled backward.
G.K. Chesterton



Other Information:
I'm a reader. Can't go to the bathroom without book in my hand (even if I don't open it in the little room). Love my cats and dogs.

When you don't think the program will work, remember the motto: Try it our way for at least 6 weeks and if you are not satisfied we will gladly refund your misery

Beautiful Little Christmas

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
like the great songs say
dance with joy under the winter sun
engage in laughter and play
Have yourself a beautiful little Christmas
Cause deep within your heart
We all know the power of this love
Should be found everyday from the start
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your dreams be free
sing songs with friends all around
gather gifts under the brightly lit tree
Have yourself a beautiful little Christmas
and every night from now on
send good wishes to all mankind
may you do your best to do no wrong.

When the holiday season gets hectic, take time to pamper yourself! From the tree trimming and decorating to stocking stuffing and Christmas treats---THINK HEALTHY!Stock up with fresh fruits and vegetables. Discover simple ways to make the season merry and bright! A spark friend sent this to me this month I sure needed to reread this today and get my self dusted off before I fall to fall down that dangerous Christmas trail of cookies. Hope this reminder helps someone else to as we journey to good health
Have a great rest of the week community teammates

God grant you peace at Christmas
and fill your heart with cheer,
God grant you health and happiness
throughout the coming year,
God guide you with His wisdom
and keep you in His care...
This is my special wish for you,
this is my Christmas prayer.
Wishing you God's Blessings Always!

If I put sweaters on mine they just plop down and won't move. I would have to drag them so they just tough it out with their puffy, curly hair!
