It requires desire, to make a difference.
You master your mind... You master your weight.
Fitness shows us we are change makers, it is only a tool in rebuilding our lives.
It's not about numbers on a scale, it's about getting up one more time than you fall.

:: MY STORY ::
I live in Christchurch, New Zealand, Just a reminder, the seasons are opposite here, I'm 34 years old :)

From age 19 onward, my weight climbed too much... I got as high as 120kgs, (264lb) for various reasons. mostly being unhappy with life.. but now.....
I'm ready to get in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!

In my first few months of Spark, I went for a run to try and train for the 5k race on here and discovered I had bursitis in my hip which took months of therapy, I was so motivated that I kept re-injuring myself and not resting, Finally I learnt my lesson and took up other sports such as Aquacise.

I attended a beginning to fitness group, full of mostly old people who had suffered injury lol, but stuck with it, and found an opportunity for an affordable student-personal trainer.
I met Floss and he was something else alright! Age 51, the most energy I've met in anyone in my life. He somehow.. found a focus in me, that loved to do bootcamp and box... that was happy enough to set bigger goals and I did the 5k pegasus fun run (had to walk it tho) I then set my goals for a triathlon.
in November he did a report on me as his most improved client (I think he had about 10 or 15) and that felt nice... to reward me he didn't charge me anymore. On finishing his class he flew over to Austria to do his ski season teaching - and sold me his mountain bike, I've only been on it a couple times but it is a DREAM bike. I love it.
I used to mountain bike in my teenage years.

So as I head into 2013.
I've decided not to do the triathlon as I still am so very new to swimming, I can only do 4 strokes.. not 8 lengths the race requires heh. But I am going to join the gym, and take a boxing class. (Jacki.. Thurs 9am!) And Floss emailed yesterday he will be back in 5 months and want's to boot camp with me again.. hehe

I'd love to do the mud sweat and tears race this year :)
I suspect I am a girl who likes to race and compete.... Not sure yet.

But one thing I Really love about working out...
Is that it taps into a strength I have inside :)

    Those born on the cusp of Sagittarius/Capricorn will shape the future. They have an innate talent for sensing the way things should go and bringing them to fruition. They begin preparing themselves early for what life may bring. Their motto is "Always be prepared." Not the most patient person on the block, they certainly appreciate those who agree with their plans. If they don't find the cooperation they need, they will forge on ahead on their own with no problem.

    Sagittarius-Capricorn understands the power in silence. They have the ability to utilize this to help their cause. Unless they exercise caution, they may find themselves alienating those they work or live with.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn needs to temper their intensity. This will allow them to control their moods rather than letting their moods control them. They need to focus on building and maintaining social relationships. If they are not careful, they will close themselves off.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn is practical and optimistic. They are 0utgoing, and can be very friendly. Responsible and reliable, they are good to have at your side in a pinch. They like things to work in traditional ways. They have a great sense of humor. They like one-on-one competitions. They are devoted to their partners, and great fun to be around. They like to explore new things, and want to experience as many things as they can. Hard working, they are not easily deterred from their goals.
    The Cusp of Prophecy is known to be trustworthy, self-reliant, loyal, ambitious, charming, practical, economical, shrewd, fun, responsible, warm, funny, optimistic, romantic, playful, and enthusiastic. They can also be blunt, impulsive, vain, aggressive and quick-tempered.
    Individuals born on the Sagittarius-Capricorn cusp are inspired teachers, and they are very fond of children. They make astute observations, and make excellent critics, being just and fair. While they don't fall in love easily, once they do they are faithful to the end. They give their best and expect the best in return. Methodical and efficient, they complete every task to the best of their ability. They like to travel and have an affinity to language.
    Sagittarius-Capricorn is a great thinker, and sometimes is gifted with prophecy to some degree. When these two signs work together in harmony, they have an unparalleled ability to create successful ideas and bring them to fruition. They have the determination to overcome whatever frustrations or obstacles as may arise along the way. If you really want to succeed, hitch your wagon to a Sagittarius/Capricorn Cusp to help you achieve your goal.
