Dreaming in the desert ...

My 4 little dogs are smallest dogs I''ve ever had - Shalako the Pomeranian, Samurai the Papillon, Spartacus the rescued chihuahua, and the newest one, Scorpio the chihuahua that followed us home and stayed. We''ve been walking about 30 minutes to 2 hours daily.

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.

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

emoticon Just wanted to let you know I had half the group at water aerobics singing..."oo eee, won't you let me take you on a sea cruise". We were having a great time but the instructor was not amused!

Everything you need to be successful on your weight loss journey is inside of you......so dig deep, if necessary, and push forward to meet your goal. Whether your goal is for the next hour, day, week or month you can meet it if you stay focused, positive and determined.
