Time to update!!!!
A bit about me: I have several jobs, as the market where I live is very slow, like many are!! I first and foremost am a Mom...my favorite job!! I have 3 grown kids..but they will always be my kids no matter how old they are!
I own a small custom bakery, which is across the street from my home. I specialize in wedding and celebration cakes and you can often see a picture of one posted on my blog!
Then comes the horse show announcing..I do this mostly for fun..I grew up with horses, my daughter showed for years and we had quarter horses, and I have one of those voices, so there you have it!!!
I had a knee replacement last march with major complications, and its been a long haul coming back. It will never be fully ok, but we do with what we are dealt, right?
I have several goals for this year..to lose 25 pounds, walk without limping, and walk increasingly farther. At this point i'm up to 10 thousand steps a day..spproximately 5 miles.
I won't give up!!!
exercise: shooting for 120 mins a day. EVERY DAY.
Add weights 4 days a week along with the cardio and toning. At this point i was only doing them 3 days a week.
Work on making food LOW priority instead of thinking about it constantly.
Thanks to my great significant other, I have a Bodybugg! What a great tool to help me reach my goals.
I'm finding out i can NOT eat the amount of points WW allots to me OR the amount of cals Sparkpeople says i can and still lose weight. So i'm tweaking, trying to find the optimum.
ok here goes:
I am first and foremost a Mom. My 3 grown kids are so important to me!
I have a great significant other, Kevin, 3 cats, my Newfoundland, Lucy--light of my life besides my kids!! and a chihuahua.
I have several jobs: I own and operate a bakery, I'm a substitute teacher grades k-12 any class, and i'm a horse show announcer. I am involved with my alma mater on the alumni board of directors.
I love all things Harry Potter, am a proud DHOH for Hufflepuff House on our team here.
I love to read...currently on the last book of the Twilight series. Love movies, Classic Rock and some Country for music.
I love to swim and hike, love the snow, hate hot weather unless i'm near water i can BE IN.
ok i'm done!

I agree with you which is why I marched right down to animal control (drove actually since it is 16 miles) with a whole folder of documents I have collected. I wrote another blog about it when I got home this afternoon after our meeting.

Thanks! Hubby and I look forward to getting a full night's sleep soon. Our dogs are like our children and it is stressful when they don't feel well.

When we got the puppy, Zeus, he had his kennel cough medicine but it takes two weeks to kick in. He brought a mild infection and shared it with the other two dogs. They had their kennel cough medicine in December but the vet said that the medicine works like a flu shot and doesn't always get all forms of the cough. They all threw off the kennel cough but all three got a secondary infection. Razzle's went to the sinuses and moved down to her chest which is why she was sicker than the other two. All three dogs are on antibiotics and Benadryl. Razzle is also on cough medicine and asthma medicine. The asthma medication had to be made by a specialized compound pharmacy and was very expensive but seems to be working. Watching all three be sick has been awful and stressful. I have a whole new respect for a veterinarian.

Thanks for the blog comment. The back is a little sore, but I'll take the muscle soreness everyday over the pain from the nerves being aggravated!!!
