Agreed!





I love scuba diving- I don't yet love being in a bathing suit with other divers on the boat.



I have 20 pics in my gallery

Hello and welcome to my Spark page! My name is Amy and I'm a 30-something living in the San Francisco Bay Area who's working to be a healthier, happier person. Nearly everyone in my family is overweight and taking medication to control blood pressure and/or Diabetes, so before I hit my 40's I want to lose the weight and spare myself from going down a similar path. (I'm heading to Spain for vacation in September of 2015, so that's great motivation too!) I'm grateful to SP and the amazing ...

SparkPoints: 51,375

Fitness Minutes: 32,932

My Goals:
To get to a healthy weight for my height of 5'3'', about 125 pounds.

My Program:
I have a tendency to start out strong and then get overwhelmed. This time I'm going to try breaking my big goal (losing 100 pounds) into 4 mini goals of 25 pounds each.

- Eat nutritious foods in healthy proportions. Log it daily and stay in my recommended ranges.

- Exercise for at least 10 minutes per day and at least 180 minutes per week.

- Sleep at least 7 hours each night.

- Drink at least 8 glasses of water each day.

- Do something to nourish my soul each day: it could be meditating, writing in a journal, singing, etc.

Personal Information:
I like to collect quotes for motivation and inspiration. Here are a few of my favorites:

"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." - Anais Nin

"Ultimately we know deeply that the other side of every fear is freedom." - Marilyn Ferguson

"It is never too late to be what you might have been." - George Elliott

"Your goals minus your doubts equals your reality." - Ralph Marston

"Nothing will work unless you do." - Maya Angelou

"The man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears." - Michel DeMontaigne

"Life is not about finding yourself. It's about creating yourself" Stolen from Girl*In*Motion's Spark page. :)

And, of course...
"Things do not change. We do." - Henry David Thoreau

Individuals born on the Aries-Taurus cusp have a dominant personalityÂ… you always know when they are in the room. They can make quite an impression on those around them. Their forceful personalities make them good leaders when they choose to be. They are also commonly found climbing the corporate ladder, becoming well known freelancers or running any situation, whether it is at home or in business.
Aries-Taurus does not like to submit to the authority of others. They must beware of being overwhelmed by their own ambition. They are conflicted between their Aries and Taurus counterparts. Aries wishes them to be impulsive, energetic and intuitive, while Taurus is practical, sensuous and well-grounded. This may cause conflicts between practicality and dreams. In some cases, Aries-Taurus Cusp works well, with Taurus tempering the fiery boldness of Aries to a strong, determined realism. They may, at times, show a lack of emotional sensitivity that may be alarming to some.
Aries-Taurus must fight their immovable nature with their forceful nature. It may take a long time for them to reach a balance that works well for them. They will need to learn to support their wish for stability with their aggressive side.
Aries-Taurus is good at strategizing; allowing them to overcome what may seem like overwhelming odds. If they follow their instinct, they will know precisely when the right time is to act. Taurus helps Aries to plan each detail in preparation for their goal, so they almost always succeed.

Aries-Taurus should learn to sit back and watch sometimes so they don't overwhelm others. It is difficult for them to sit back and watch others do tasks when they know they can do it better. If they can keep the feelings of others in mind, they will fare well.
They enjoy challenges of all kinds, whether it is in business, sports or intellectual areas. They play as hard as they work. They are known to be flirtatious, bold, opinionated, strong, quiet, talented, sensitive, humorous, money-oriented, eloquent, dependable, practical, patient, aggressive, helpful, aloof, stubborn, jealous, moody, fickle, over-sensitive, quarrelsome and changeable. Quite a handful, aren't they?

The Aries-Taurus Cusp is also known as the Cusp of Power. You can probably see why when they have so much going for them. They have the amazing ability to get into a project and really run with it all the way to its conclusion.
They enjoy doing things for their family and friends, but it is easy to let this get out of hand. They prefer to follow their own instincts rather than follow the rules. This can cause trouble if they are not cautious. They may think they know it all, but they'll get along better if they don't act like it. While plans that go awry make them really annoyed, when they use a practical bent to their tasks, it generally works out better.
Those born on the Aries-Taurus cusp may be mechanically inclined, with the ability to stick with the job long enough to figure out any problems that arise.

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow" -- Mary Anne Radmacher
