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.

SparkPoints: 237,023

Fitness Minutes: 179,789

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

I've edited the comment on Fame which should have read "When's the band playing in the Carolinas?". Poor editing (or actually no editing emoticon ). Sorry love for the confusion.

Belated wishes for Eostre’s feast day!

JESUS (the sweetest name I know) ~

His shed blood means we can live each day in His forgiveness.

His resurrection means we can walk constantly in newness of life.

His day of victory makes all our days complete!

Praying His Very Best Is Yours this Easter Season!


For in Him we live & move & have our being. ~ Acts 17:28 NIV


There will never be another act of love
so pure or triumph
so celebrated
as the humility of the cross
& the miracle of the empty tomb.

Bonnie Jensen

Have a wonderful time of rejoicing in the Resurrection!

After I graduated from high school I got married - stupid me! A year later I was divorced (thank goodness!) and a much smarter young woman (I thought!). I started dating a man who was married - here I am an intuitive! LOL My adopted mom told me straight out what was what. I still didn't want to believe it. And she was correct. I had a hard time dealing with it and breaking it off, which I eventually did. Why was this all tough? Because my dad never lied and I thought all men were the same. Let's just say I grew up fast in the next few years.

It's amazing how we want to believe in all the happy-happy stuff to our demise.

Big hug coming your way. emoticon
