Corgi walking for fun!

My life includes several pets (a corgi, two cats, guinea pigs), work, church (Evanagelical Covenant), friends, and family. I enjoy gardening, needlework, cooking, movies, reading, and a bit of travel.

Love your profile image of the Pemmies! I have a Cardigan.
Corgis are the best dogs in the world! I've had both Pems and Cardis over the 25+ years I've shown dogs. I hope I never have to live without a Corgi! best walking buddy I could have!
Hope your Sparkin' is going well!

Hi Jackie - Well, the plumbing job didn't go as planned so we're without a bathroom sink until at least Thursday or so. : (

I go to Redwood Covenant Church over on Sebastopol Rd. If you go to Sebastopol Rd and turn RT, its down by the business park past the condos on the RT.
I've been going there about 5 yrs now - how time flies! I've been involved in different ministries through the time. This last year on the Women's Ministry Team, and the last two years or so a Women of Faith group leader for the event in October in Sacramento. This is my last year doing that and the Women's Ministry Team.
I still volunteer in the Welcome Center after 2nd service. They have a hard time finding people to do thatl
Plus I'm in a book club that now meets monthly on a Saturday afternoon in different ladies' homes. We're reading Jane Eyre right now.

I'm back to the gym just after 4:00 am tomorrow for the treadmill and then to the gym at work for a lower body workout. I'm thinking of having one of the personal trainers there show me how to use the Smith Squat machine.

Glad you had a great cardio session, you can do the Zumba! There's a learning curve to all of them even when you're in the group setting with others. I figure if I'm giving it my best effort over time my movements improve and I'll get it.
I used to do Richard Simmons early in the morning before my road construction job, and it really helped with my weight and my flexibility.

Hehe cool emoticon I was actually going to ask last week if you got to church. What church do you go to if you don't mind me asking?

That video and Blood Sugar Solution book sound good. It's awesome when you find stuff that work for you. I actually tried looking up some Zumba videos. I think I may just pick one up from the store. It looks like it might take me awhile to learn it but they break the moves down enough that I think I could learn it. I keep hearing from so many people how fun it is. I did do my Stengel training today. I had an intense cardio workout yesterday-- it was so fun. I hope to get in another good cardio tomorrow :) Sounds like you're going to be a busy bee tomorrow. I've got a bit of cleaning to do and maybe I will give the kitty's their baths. Today seemed to just fly by.
