For The Last Time

So here's the deal. It is now three years since I first seriously started using Spark to become a healthier person. I lost 42 pounds over the course of 5 months and was feeling pretty good. I even managed to run my first 5K and not die. Then some stuff happened...nothing horrible, I just started putting other things first and abandoned my eating and exercise plan. I also found that my work was suffering because I was putting too much time into exercising. So now, having found all of the pounds ...

I also found that my work was suffering because I was putting too much time into exercising. So now, having found all of the pounds I originally lost, I want to see if I can learn how to create a balance in my life. I also need to find some intrinsic motivation, because relying on an outside event resulted in my giving up entirely. But it's time for a fresh start. And hopefully, this truly will be the last time I have to say that.

Those born on the Aquarius-Pisces cusp are sensitive. They are more open to their personal space and universal space than they are to worldly concerns. They spend time digging within themselves for better understanding. Managing day to day life may be more challenging for them because it is hard for them to focus on these mundane things.
Aquarius-Pisces wants experiences, but it is difficult for them to remain objective. Because of their ultra-sensitivity, this can be a difficult balance for them to achieve. For the best results, they need to put themselves out there and not hide away. They need to learn to feel more comfortable in this world.
Aquarius-Pisces is compassionate, imaginative and sympathetic to others. They set goals, but they may procrastinate or be so disorganized that they create their own obstacles. They may be eccentric and offbeat, but they are definitely original. They are often multi-talented and feel the need to change the world. This may be difficult since they can be painfully shy. They are sometimes blessed with incredible musical abilities.
Aquarius-Pisces likes to socialize. Being with others helps them relieve stress and anxiety. They love water activities. They are flirtatious and romantic, and they genuinely care for others. Their compassion is all-encompassing. They have a unique angle on the world that others just don't see.
Aquarius-Pisces is a natural psychic. If they don't get support for this at an early age, they will shut it down and pretend it doesn't exist. It may be difficult for them to open up to others once they realize they see things differently because they don't want to be ridiculed.
The Cusp of Sensitivity is known for tolerance, sensitivity, uniqueness, talent, artistic merit, emotions, practicality, dreaming, sensuality, idealism, flirtatiousness, pride, loyalty, romance, compassion, sympathy and imagination. They may also be pessimistic, hyper-sensitive, moody, secretive, impatient, stubborn, aloof, cold and quarrelsome.
Some would call Aquarius-Pisces cusp a bit peculiar. They like luxury, and this desire may keep them in the day to day world enough to keep their business obligations. Their kind nature can make them overbook their time, trying to oblige everyone; then when they forget an engagement, they let people down. While they can exaggerate their accomplishments, they often decline telling about their failures or troubles. They love their freedom, and their dreaminess can lead to spiritual depth and insight. They may be responsible for amazing creative works. People are attracted to them, and in well balanced circumstances, they enjoy travel as well as delving into science or religion.
