My Program:
Making healthier choices: exercising at least 30 minutes a day at least five days a week; tracking my food; drinking at least 8 cups of water a day.

Personal Information:
I love God, my family, and baseball. Usually in that order...At least I try to keep God first. I've been a Boston Red Sox fan since 1967. I root for the Texas Rangers because they're the home team. Except when they play the Red Sox.

Other Information:
I don't have a favorite book; there are too many. But my favorite authors are Stephen King, Jim Butcher, John Piper, R.C. Sproul, Connie Willis. I like Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, and I like theology/devotional books.

Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street is currently my favorite movie. White Christmas is my favorite Christmas movie. Jurassic Park (the first one), Serenity, and V for Vendetta are also favorites.

My favorite current TV shows are Leverage, Bones, The Mentalist, Castle, The Closer, Fringe, and various clones of CSI. Adding Big Bang Theory, Parks & Recreation, and Revenge to that list. I also like Warehouse 13, Once Upon A Time, Grimm, and Lost Girl. Don't have time for them all!

My all-time favorite TV show is still Buffy the Vampire Slayer, closely followed by Angel and Firefly. Actually, Firefly comes before Angel.

Thanks for your kind comment on my blog!! And wow - what great progress you have made - I am hoping to be able to say I've lost 70 pounds someday!! It may take awhile - but worth it. And - love that red guitar. I was just thinking the other day that maybe the reason I love music so much is that I secretly want to be in the band...
