Hi, I'm 41 years old, married to the love of my life for 11 years, have a grown daughter and teenage son. I work in a psychiatric hospital working with troubled adolescents. I love animals and crafts. I am a self pronounced hermit and my husband has to work really hard to get me to leave the house on my days off. I hope that changes in the future, it really makes me feel lazy, lol.
I guess you could say I'm not going to set any goals, because when I set goals, I don't meet them. I just want to lose slowly and be healthy in the process.
As of this moment, I haven't done a thing, but my plan is to change one thing about my eating habits and my lack of exercise and practice that change until it's second nature.
I'm from the great state of Kentucky. My name is Shanna God is first in my life, for without Him, I would be nothing. I have a 22 year old daughter and a 17 year old son. I am married to a veteran of the US Army..Hooah!! We have been together almost 14 years and married for 11. I have 4 dogs, 3 cats and 4 birds. As you can tell I am an avid animal person and I have rescued each pet I have. I am an RN and work with adolescent that suffer from depression, aggression and drug abuse. I love my job very much.
I love scary movies and Stephen King is my favorite author. I crochet, cross stitch, plastic canvas, make jewelry, and hopefully in the near future will teach myself to knit.

Thank you for the comment on my page. I can understand the frustration over having over 100lbs to lose because not too long ago, I was there myself. You have already taken the first steps though, by joining SP and reading The Spark. If you need anything, I am here :) Good luck with everything, stay positive and motivated because you CAN and WILL achieve your goals!!

This is a wonderful recipe to make with your kids for Easter. You can find it and more Kid's recipes in my "Kids at Heart", my Sparkpeople cookbook at:
Easter Story Cookies
Submitted by: BEARLEE4.
Place the cookie dough on a cookie sheet and place it in the oven, close the door and turn the oven OFF.
Give each child a piece of tape and seal the oven door. Explain that Jesus' tomb was sealed.
GO TO BED! Explain that they may feel sad to leave the cookies in the oven overnight. Jesus' followers were in despair when the tomb was sealed. Read John 16:20 and 22.
On Easter morning, open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Notice the cracked surface and take a bite. The cookies are hollow! On the first Easter Jesus' followers were amazed to find the tomb open and empty.
Read Matt. 28:1-9

We are heading into Mardi Gras Season!
And this is a great picture of our President Obama enjoying some Fried Frog Legs, a famous Creole delicacy in the French Quarter in New Orleans, Louisiana!
QUESTION: "Do frog legs taste like chicken?"
No. Cooked right, they have a naturally tangy flavor, smokey, tender, juicy and delicious!
Frog legs are an exotic Cajun delicacy from South Louisiana.
Grill over a very hot flame a few minutes. Frog legs have no fat. Overcooking or cooking too slow makes them dry and tasteless.
Fish them out of the bayou or contact Church Point Wholesale online for premium quality, cleaned, quick frozen legs.
Here is a simple Frog leg recipe from my Sparkpeople cookbook "Take a Bite Off The Wild Side!" You can find it at:
4-5 lbs. Frog Legs
1 c Olive Oil
Lemon pepper to taste
1-2 Lemons, cut into wedges
Tabasco Sauce to taste
1. Wash the frog legs thoroughly under cold water. Separate the legs into individual legs if you want to.
2. Evenly sprinkle Lemon pepper over the meat.
3. Place the frog legs in a zip-lock freezer bag.
4. Pour the olive oil into the bag.
5. Place in the refrigerator and let it marinate for 3 hours.
6. Before you are ready to grill them, take them out of the refrigerator. Let stand at room temperature for one hour.
7. Get the fire started in the BBQ grill. Using a charcoal burning grill, light the charcoal and let the coals get super hot.
9. When the coals are red hot, grill the frog legs for 1-1½ minutes on each side. Don't keep flipping them over. Let them get a little charred before you flip them. This will enhance their flavor.
10. When they are done, remove them from the grill and place in a covered dish to keep hot until ready to serve.
Serve immediately. serve hot with lemon wedges and Tabasco Sauce.
Makes 6-8 servings
