Welcome to my page!

It's time to start getting serious about my health, and this seems like a good place to start. I am interested in losing weight, eating healthier foods, and working out regularly with the objective of getting back into running.

I think this is a great place for me to be as I don't have much in the way of support for these sorts of goals in real life.

    Happy Birthday to You!! Sorry I’m late!

    Born June 9, you enjoy being in the spotlight, standing front and center to share your thoughts and actions with an audience large or small -- though, you will have to admit, the larger the audience the better. This may not always have been the case, however; when quite young, you may well have harbored insecurities and doubts that made you quite shy, but these are liabilities that you will no doubt have shed with age. You are hardworking and studious, and you will never step in front of a crowd without having done your homework -- and the result can be quite satisfying for you and for those who have the pleasure of watching you perform.

    You never shirk responsibility, nor do you turn your back on opportunities to relax and enjoy rather unusual forms of recreation -- and the more unusual it is, the more likely you will be to invest in it fully. You like to do things that others have good reason to avoid.

    Hope your day was wonderful!
