Island Life...

I've been roaming around the country lots since joining SP in 2008. I started out in PA, then moved to VA, then to FL and MA, and now to Hawaii. My husband's job keeps us moving, but I love it. Its how I grew up as a navy brat, its all I know.

We moved to Oahu in July of 2012. This has been a summer of total change for me - my oldest headed to college on the East Coast for the first time, I successfully navigated thyroid surgery and recovery and have set up house yet again in a ...
I've been roaming around the country lots since joining SP in 2008. I started out in PA, then moved to VA, then to FL and MA, and now to Hawaii. My husband's job keeps us moving, but I love it. Its how I grew up as a navy brat, its all I know.

We moved to Oahu in July of 2012. This has been a summer of total change for me - my oldest headed to college on the East Coast for the first time, I successfully navigated thyroid surgery and recovery and have set up house yet again in a new town, new schools, etc.

I have gained so much weight back since I lost in 2007 but not quite yet back to the old weight. I am never giving up. I have been battling injury to my ankle, perhaps arthritis or stress from all the weight. Yet, I don't give up completely. There are days I don't do as much, but I have yet to lay in bed and give up.

So, I have hopes that the wonderful weather and attitude here on the island will instill in me a change. To slow down, be more forgiving of myself and patient in my journey toward health. Each day becomes easier and easier.

I am walking in my first race since 2010 in December, the Honolulu 10K with my mother in conjunction with the marathon. I am also walking a 1.5 mi fun run with my daughter in conjunction with an XTERRA event here. This is good motivation to train, even if its just walking! Now where are those darned running shoes...

Those born on the Sagittarius-Capricorn Cusp will help 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 outgoing, 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.
