My Program:
I am tracking calories, 1400-1700 a day, drinking at leat 8 glasses of water and following a flexitarian diet. Also limiting my alcohol intake.

I am doing circuit training for full body 3 days a week, and cardio for 35 min, 4 times a week for now. I started at 30 min in January, and will move it up to 40 in about a month. I use Planet Fitness, and do cardio either on a bike, treadmill, elliptical or arc trainer, making sure to switch it up each day

Personal Information:
I am from Central Maine. I have my BS In Business Administration, and look forward to starting work on my masters program within the next year. I work as a staff scheduler for a non-profit home health care agency. I live with my bofriend of 5+ years and my fabulous cat Rupert. That's it about me

Other Information:
I like the outdoors, love hiking and camping...the beach (and we are blessed with a lovely coastline in Maine), reading, cooking, music and going to concerts, and want to be able to do more of these things without being so exhausted or feeling self conscious.

“Patience, persistence & perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” ~ Napoleon Hill

Individuals born on the Scorpio-Sagittarius cusp like to rebel against authority. Ironically, some will find themselves in positions of authority in later life, and they will use their authority with skill. They fare very well when they own their own business. If they work for others, they do best when they are allowed to work on their own.
Scorpio-Sagittarius may be wild, especially when young. This may be due to them feeling different from their peers. They may choose not to bother learning a trade so they can live a conventional life, but on the other hand, they may experience circumstances when young that may give them a sense of purpose.
To succeed, Scorpio-Sagittarius should follow their vision. They should remain honest and pure in their motivations. They need to learn to be objective, so they can stand back and observe how they are doing. They need to learn to forgive others and be less possessive.

Scorpio-Sagittarius can be very suspicious and jealous if they are not careful. This can keep them from attaining their potential. If they focus on their passions and awareness instead, they can learn to rise above the pettiness and do well. They are friendly and outgoing. Many have a terrific sense of humor. Some may find them a bit argumentative, but they really want to learn not offend others. High spirited and enthusiastic, Scorpio-Sagittarius may be flirtatious and fun to have around.

They love competitions of all kinds, especially those that pit them against one other person. They may enjoy gambling and seem to know Lady Luck personally. They enjoy debate and drama. In relationships, Scorpio-Sagittarius is playful, caring and may become possessive. They don't allow boredom to affect their projects, and they truly want to see every project through to the end.
The Cusp of Revolution is progressive, powerful, determined, honest, independent and good humored. They may be playful, loyal, confident and generous. They are also known for their stubbornness, possessiveness, suspiciousness, impatience, vanity and temper.
Those born on the Scorpio-Sagittarius cusp learn quickly and well. They are fearless. It is very difficult for them to wait passively. They may be annoyingly pessimistic. They appreciate it when they receive praise for a job well done. They may have an incredible academic mind, and would make a good teacher, researcher or consultant. They may also excel at writing or publishing. They are adventurous and courageous, so travel intrigues them. They may also show interest in the occult and other similar subjects. They are very sensitive, but they don't like to show their vulnerability. emoticon
