In Maintenance, Baby!!!

Now that I'm in maintenance, I'm trying to find a balance between recording everything and having too many free-for-all days. If I need to, I'll be returning to the site and begin recording my food and exercise again. I'm hoping I can maintain my low-120's on my own! :o)

Happy Birthday to You!!

Born today, August 8, you are a fierce competitor, but you engage in everything -- even the most serious of contests -- with a sense of balance and fairness that allows you to maintain perspective and progress with a kind of calm that gives you the edge over anyone who is led by his or her passions. This is not to say that you are not passionate, but you always manage to keep your heart and your head in careful equilibrium. You possess a genuine lust for life, and you dedicate yourself fully to any endeavor that is worth your time and study.

You understand fully the importance of the past to your own present and future, and your place in a long line is not lost on you; indeed, you are perhaps more capable of fulfilling your destiny than anyone else born under your sign for precisely this reason.

Today’s Leo Horoscope: You can try something new and enjoy it as if it is familiar, comfortable and absolutely right for you.

Hope your day is wonderful!
