Dreaming in the desert ...

I share my home and life with 4-footed friends - 4 cats (Sahara, Shasta, 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 ...

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.


Current Status:
DESERTDREAMERS finished walking the pups 4.2 miles. Left them in the front yard behind the closed gate while I went to Del Taco. Samurai & Shalako greeted me @ DT.Spartacus was still behind the closed gate. Whew!

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

Good cooks adjust their recipes as needed. Consider that recipe as a guideline! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Touch wood...no sign of it today but do feel drained, managed 1 set of 10 reps of all my kettle bell workout with the lightest bell and felt that would have to do. Felt better for getting that done and my chores and the sun has come out so I'll take a stroll (and I mean a slow stroll) and get some fresh air


Thanks again.... emoticon
