Hello! We haven't had a Nevada checkin for a long time, lol, years. I believe there are several of us on this board now.
I completely understand annonimity so the town is not necessary unless you want to give it out.
Something about where I live:
I'm in Pahrump. I've lived here 9 years...
Today I decided to try something new. I have to confess, I've been the laziest sloth imaginable for the past month. My house is filthy, my cupboards are bare, and I just sit around all day in my pyjamas. I hate November. Cold and dark, with nothing to look forward to but an endless stretch...

How did everyone do with their 2006 goals? I finally pulled mine up for another look. My main goals were to pay out the mortgage by the end of July, improve my health, spend quality time with family, and improve my spiritual and intellectual development. I managed to:
1) pay out the mortgage...
How did you do with your 2006 goals? What happened and why?
Here's an update of mine...
My ultimate goal this year is to pay out the mortgage early. I'm hoping this will happen by the end of July. DONE In order to do that, I'm:

How are you doing on your Christmas projects? I have the scarf for Katie's teacher made. I am still working on crocheting the clothes for the girl's baby dolls. I also still have to crochet the angel ornaments for church teachers and angel dishcloths.
Well, I didn't go for my walk tonite. My neighbor cancelled and I used that as my excuse not to go! I did take my dog for a walk up the street, but that was nothing compared to the walk I usually take. Maybe I'll get up early tomorrow and use the gazelle for a half hour--keeping my fingers...
Did you fit exercise into your weekend?
I went for a walk last night at the track, ended up walking for an hour and a half. I could really feel it in my legs and butt :)
I'll be walking again later tonite and I plan on doing my "Sexy Arms" video!!
YAY the weekend is here!! Who's going to exercise this weekend? I will!!! I have a few errands to run this morning, then I'll come home and workout. I have to stop at the grocery store to pick up some fruit--they have a good sale on peaches this week.
I hope everyone has a great weekend :)
Happy Friday:) I'm not sure what I'll do for exercise today--we got about 2 inches of snow last night, so I'll be doing a little bit of shoveling this morning. Tonight, I'm going to a movie with my cousin, so I'll try to resist the buttery popcorn!!!
Have a great day :)
Good morning!!!! Today is going to be a wonderful day---I can feel it already! :) I'm headed off to work in a few minutes. When I get home, I will be exercising, probably some cardio on the treadmill. I may stop at the gym after work, since I'll be right around the corner from it...
Who's going to have a great day? I am!!! Even though work has been extremely busy and I haven't had as much free time lately, I'm making sure I do some type of exercise each day--and I feel great afterwards.
I'm still drinking lots of water and eating healthy--although I still allow myself...
Let's see, today I hope to do a 30 minute upper body workout. I'll fit this in later on tonight when I get home from work, no excuses!! I have a 2 hour (each way) commute to work this morning, so I'll make sure I exercise first thing when I get home, otherwise, I may try to put it off. I have...
