My Yorkie Tinker
My husband Rick and my son Ryan at Yellowstone National Park
I found this quote on pinterest, I think, and it really spoke to me about my weight loss goals.
"If you hang on long enough, your vision will take you forward and your pain won't drag you back."
I have lost and gained weight numerous times. I'm losing it for good this time. I'm losing weight for my health, not necessarily for a dress size, but that would be nice too.
I consider myself to be a Jill of all Trades.
My life changed in 2010 when I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Suddenly exercise was not easy and made the hurdle to healthy living much higher. I'm a fighter and I will not give in to this disease.
Let's be friends!
My Weight Loss goal is 100 pounds lost.
I have been at Sparkpeople since March 2010 off and on. With various medical problems it has been an uphill battle, but I will not quit the fight.
Hi! I'm Kim. I have a 13 year old son and my hubby and I have been married 20 years. We had a Bernese Mountain Dog named Peyton. He passed away on July 4, 2011 from cancer. In November, 2011 we adopted a little yorkie mix from the Humane Society named Tinker, who rules the house. She has a comfy dog bed in every room for her convenience.
I am into crafts of all kinds but particularly jewelry making and polymer clay. I also like scrapbooking, rubber stamping, and painting. I am also a graphic designer so some of my art is digital. I am also into photography, cooking, homeschooling, and cub scouts. My blog for all that is http://www.hoppinhomemaking.com. Come visit!

The most wonderful feeling in the world is when tears
turn to laughter because someone who doesn't want you
to be sad, said something funny to cheer you up.
Suddenly you're lifted from a dark place and
you know that, somehow, everything really will be okay.
Hope someone makes you feel wonderful today

Its amazing how kids learn to use a computer, a smart phone,
text, and even learn how to drive, yet have no concept of
how to use a dishwasher, a vacuum cleaner, and a lawn mower.

I'm starting the 30 Day WALK THIS WAY CHALLENGE. Day one was yesterday and I was supposed to pick 3 people and tell them about the challenge. Lucky you... 1 of my 3. It's 10 minutes of walking each day so I will be able to incorporate it into my work days. I brought my tennis shoes and plan to walk today on my lunch break.

~~ ~~8 things you didn't know about laughter~~ ~~
1. In groups, women laugh more than men.
2. Laughter is said to improve alertness, creativity, and memory.
3. Most people cannot laugh at command.
4. The sound of laughter is not associated with any one language.
5. One good belly laugh burns about 3.5 calories.
6. Gelotology is the study of humor & laughter.
7. Healthy people laugh about 100 to 400 times a day.
8. That's about 2,800 times a week or 146, 000 times a year.
You laugh, I laugh...you cry, I cry.
You fall, I laugh, then fall too, because I was laughing too hard.
I laugh even harder when I try to explain why I'm laughing.
My favorite pain is in my stomach when my friends make me laugh too hard.
Nothing compares with the stomach ache I get from laughing with my best friend.
That awkward moment when you can't stop laughing while telling a joke,
and you're finally done, your friend doesn't even get it.
Laughter..a tranquilizer with no side effects..please take it regularly
Have a Day Filled With Laughter
Sending "Laughing" ((((((HUGS)))))) & "Smiles
