The road to success

I am on this journey to better myself. I know that with support from family/friends/love ones and Christ I can do this! I have a desire to not only renew my body, but I want a renewed mind and a diifferent outlook of how to deal with the stress and drama that life brings my way. I know I can do this...and I'm taking it a day at a time. So today (10/25/10) I want a fresh start to continue this race.

I am on this journey to better myself. I know that with support from family/friends/love ones and Christ I can do this! I have a desire to not only renew my body, but I want a renewed mind and a diifferent outlook of how to deal with the stress and drama that life brings my way. I know I can do this...and I'm taking it a day at a time. So today (10/25/10) I want a fresh start to continue this race. I am now convinced that this is not a sprint, but rather a educated jog to a greater understanding about myself, my abilities, and health. So I look forward to learning new ideas and information along my journey.

My Goals:
Goals: 1) achieve lower BP through a healtier lifestyle; 2) Always push myself to remain active for not just myself, but more importantly my children; 3) Work on resolving emotional eating patterns, the causes, and alternatives for dealing with stress.



My Program:
I am currently eating between 1670-2020 cal a day. I work ou 5 days/week doing walk/jog or eliptical trainer, I strenght train 2 days/week

Other Information:
The road to success is not always straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Temptation, red lights called Set backs, and caution lights called Emotional eating. But if you have a spare called determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called faith, and driver named Jesus, you will make it to the place called Success (Phil. 4:13).

Just cruising through leaving everyone with some motivational thoughts for today:

“To move head you need to believe in yourself . . . have conviction in your beliefs & the confidence to execute those beliefs.” ~ Adlin Sinclair

“Patience, persistence & perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” ~ Napoleon Hill

“Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great.” ~ Mark Twain

The Scorpio child is born to a father who didn't want a child for whatever reason, which may never have been discussed in the home, but the sensitive little Scorpio picks up on this and learns not to trust others. She asks "What do they want from me and what is in this for me?" Scorpio is a good sign for a woman to be since it is "fixed" water, making her very emotional, but in our culture a woman is allowed to be emotional. She can be very jealous, even of siblings when she feels she has been slighted. Scorpio being a "fixed" sign can stay with and finish what she starts but she also has a very difficult time trying to change. She can certainly have a weight problem as her emotions get the best of her. But, she can exercise and stay with a routine, so her weight issue is ALL up to her and no one else. What she is is all of her own making. She lives a life of extremes and is never center-field on any issue. She makes up her mind quickly and stays with her decision or feelings on an issue.
She gets along with Virgo, Taurus, Pisces, Capricorn and Cancer. She should avoid Sagittarius as he will be to blunt for her although she can be very sarcastic when she wants to be. It is her way of protecting herself and getting out her "sting."
She makes a good detective or policewoman.
Scorpio must be in control of any relationship she is in, as this goes back to her feeling unsure as a child.
The Scorpio woman is often the "breadwinner" in the family, or she supports others such as a parent or "down on his luck" relative.
No matter how successful Scorpio is in life, she always feels her life is a struggle. It is never easy for her from her point of view. She feels the world is against her in some way. Again, this goes back to her childhood.

Like the other water signs, this sign is very sensitive and emotional. With Scorpio, unlike the water signs Cancer and Pisces, the emotions remain under rigid control. They may not even be apparent to those who are very close to you. When your emotions do erupt, they do so very violently, often with a strong burst of sarcasm and vindictiveness.
The strength of Scorpio is in the methods employed to meet every challenge. You approach everything with intensity and passion. Nothing is ever halfway because you put everything you have in your work; mind, heart, soul. You are one of those people who always gives 100% and sometimes more. Many born under the sign Scorpio become classic workaholics.
You may have an undesirable trait commonly found in the Scorpio person, holding a grudge for a very long time. The underside of Scorpio is often possessed with uncontrollable jealousies and the strongest passions. When offended the reaction is surely revenge. The higher side of Scorpio still dominates people and situations, but with much for the common good. This sign produces very few lukewarm people. You are either very bad or very good.
In Scorpio, the Sun is intense, skeptical and secretive. There is an intensity and a secretiveness in your makeup which results in an inscrutable persona most people cannot penetrate. This trait makes the Scorpio personality hard to detect. You like to remain incognito, and do so with your very secretive nature. You are a master at hiding your emotions. You neither flinch nor blush. It's hard for you to share your inner feelings with anyone.

You can be very critical and demanding, creating a forceful and dominating demeanor. You are strong-willed and determined, and you usually act with incisiveness. Your critical nature allows you to make shrewd and unusually accurate judgments at a rapid rate. You can penetrate the hidden agenda of those you meet. It is in your nature to protect yourself by knowing what your opponents are thinking and doing. You have uncanny intuition and accurate perceptions, making you almost psychic in understanding and making emotional connections with other people. Very few successfully earn your trust. Often, you experience difficulties with the authority figures in your life.
At home, you may be something of a tyrant, wanting everything done your way. You think you are always right and won't tolerate dissent. There is a tendency for you to impose your will on friends and family since you feel so passionately that your ideas are in their best interest. No one takes relationships more serious than you. Although you are highly attracted to, and attractive to, the opposite sex, in many respects you function well as a 'lone wolf' type.
