No Day But Today!

I may have fallen off track, but I'm not out of the game! After losing over 120 pounds, I moved to a new city, started teaching full-time at an elementary school and taking classes full-time for my master's degree. I let myself get distracted from my goals, and gained back almost 40 pounds. ugh...but I'm back, and more motivated than ever to reach my goals!

I am a Done Girl.
I am DONE hiding.
I am DONE with negativity.
I am DONE with the lazy lifestyle.

I really enjoy going to movies with my family and watching netflix at home (I really love documentaries). I also really love craft projects (and quilting) :-)

emoticon Happy BELATED Birthday. Scorpio is a good sign for a woman to be since it makes her very much in charge of her own life. (Julia Roberts and Sally Field are both Scorpio women as is Maria Shriver.) Because the Scorpio child wasn't wanted by the father for whatever reason (often this wasn't even talked about in the family, but the sensitive little Scorpio FELT it and knew, so she learned not to trust others but to depend on herself), the Scorpio child grows up insecure and often a loner, but she rules her own life and whatever she makes of it is completely up to her. In any relationship she is in she MUST be in charge. She gets along well with Pisces, Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus). Her health issues can be her female organs, her throat and thyroid, thus she can have a weight issue, but she also has complete self-discipline and can exercise and control what she eats. She is emotional and lives her life always to extremes, so she can turn to drugs, alcohol or food, if she isn't careful and allows her emotions to run away with her. For this reason, she is often a counselor to others, or a fitness trainer or even a military person. She makes up her mind quickly on people and issues, never being in the center. If she likes someone, she is loyal to the end, but if she doesn't she will use her sarcastic manor to let them know. She is always willing to take on a fight, even if she is very much the "church lady." Her life is never an easy one as no matter how much money she gets she will struggle and see her life as difficult. (Maria Shriver who was married to Arnold writes always about how difficult her life has been, while living in a mansion.)
Scorpio needs a creative outlet so she finds it in some physical manner such as running, Yoga, or even like Picasso, in art that is very unusual. She often has a large family, but she is the bread-winner. (Sally Field supported her first husband and got a divorce saying "I was the Little Red Hen who did it all." So like a Scorpio woman.) the real issue is she doesn't feel anyone else can do it well enough to suit her, so she does it herself, but then gets very tired and she feels used. She has to learn this about herself and give up some control to others as she so often takes on way to much to begin with.
