My Goals:
Goals for 2013:

1. Trip to Argentina- my goal involved with this is to be at least the same weight/size I was when I left. Which means I have about 20 more pounds to lose by July 9th.

2. Beat my 5k time from last year (1 hour and 30 seconds).

3. Participate in 1-2 additional 5k races other than the one I sign up for every year.

My Program:
Tracking my food, working out with a trainer twice a week, going to zumba classes, and training for a 5k!

Personal Information:
I currently live in Fargo, ND where I work as a RN on the night shift.

Being overweight runs in my family (both immediate and extended) and I've been heavy for as long as I can really remember. I finally made the decision this summer that I needed and wanted to change. Time to make it happen!

Other Information:
My favorite quote (and I'm not sure where it's from): "Shoot for the moon....even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."

This is the strongest time of the year for you to begin ANEW and become all you want in your life.
Leo loves children, but seldom has many of her own. She can work with children as a teacher, or selling children's toys/clothes, or doing something with art. Leo loves drama and makes a good actress. (Think Lucille Ball). Leo gets along well with Sagittarius, Aries, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. She can have problems with her spine and back. Leo isn't naturally a fat sign, since she cares to much about how she appears to others. She loves to be the one to set the style and she hates for anyone to criticize her for not being at her best. Therefore, Leo can certainly work hard to stay fit and trim as she loves being at her best.
In Leo, the Sun is magnetic, forceful, and dominate. You possess a good nature that is very generous, allowing you to attract many friends and followers. You can easily become a natural leader because of your demeanor and because you are ambitious, determined, and highly industrious. Self-assurance and dignity are very strong in your nature. Your magnetic personality lets you sell yourself or your ideas easily, and your persistence at doing so further enhances your leadership potential. You are at your best when placed in charge of a large scheme, for you are truly a fine organizer. You enjoy being in a position of authority because you know you were born to rule. Your sunny disposition allows you to be candid, outspoken, and very direct in all matters, without upsetting people. You possess natural leadership ability, and project such confidence and authority that you inspire others to follow you.
The typical Leo is a natural showman, and delights in having a full measure of recognition and admiration. Leo is the most expressive sign in the zodiac. You love to show off. You probably see your role in life as the starring role. Often the Leo personality chooses some artistic form through which to express talent. There is much drama associated with Leo, and the general approach to life is full of emotional exuberance. If you are not careful, these traits can result in too large an ego, which in turn can make you very susceptible to flattery. Though you have a high opinion of yourself, you still need the approbation and appreciation of your friends and followers. Your ego needs constant reinforcement. This helps keep the spotlight focused on your activities.
Naturally emotionally exuberant, you are not only a good actor, but you make a truly outstanding teacher, as well. The Leo association with the fifth house of the chart suggests a strong bond with children. You may consider your children to be expressions of your creativity. Typically, the Leo is very close to children, the loving benefactor and protector.

The lordly Leo sometimes feels there should be an automatic granting of power and authority. Because of this, you may be one of those Leo types who doesn't feel the need to work your way to the top. Though in many ways you show that you are ambitious, you also can be lazy. You may only want to work at jobs that offer prestige, glamour, power or a good time. You exert yourself only in those situations were you can exhibit your star quality, and garner the attention and respect of others.
Your gift is surely the ability that you naturally possess to lead and to inspire. You are at home on the stage or at the podium. Your poorest showing comes when you are unable to control your ego, and you let an exaggerated sense of your own importance get the upper hand. In spite of your self-assurance and dignity, you may have a degree of concern about being laughed at or disgraced in some way. Again, ego is at the base of your nature and being. -
