*~Blubber Blast in Progress~* ~~Release the Beast!!~~

2013 was the year of breaking down walls and adjustments. Because of a job where am constantly on feet and moving round, I was able to flush 75 pounds down the toilet- great start, but now the real work begins!
2014 is back to basics. Drink my water, eat more balanced meals, add non job related cardio & strength. I need to balance a schedule that changes and the rest of my life. Taking on things like the 5% community challenge and other teams will keep me motivated along with monthly ones ...

2014 is back to basics. Drink my water, eat more balanced meals, add non job related cardio & strength. I need to balance a schedule that changes and the rest of my life. Taking on things like the 5% community challenge and other teams will keep me motivated along with monthly ones like the Squat challenge starting Jan. 1. Also will be doing Rockin Body.
This will be a FABULOUS year for me.. Can't wait!

I have made excuses for thing all my life. I have no one to blame but myself for being in this state of unhealthiness. Although I went thru some really hard times in my life, I am the one who chose to eat the fast food and not exersize like I should. I allowed negativity to seep into my very core.
The simple truth is that sh*t happens everyday. I can chose to let it define me or I can chose to fight thru it and live my life. I chose to smile at the world and LIVE because
I AM TOTALLY WORTH IT!

Those born under the sign of LEO have much in common with the Lion. Leo loves to be the center of attention. She gets along well with Aries, Sagittarius, Libra, Gemini and sometimes her opposite, Aquarius. She should avoid controlling, secretive Scorpio since she must have truth and openness in any relationship. She loves to spend money, but can make a lot of it. She makes a great teacher as she loves to show others. She has few children, but loves children. She can have problems with her heart and her spine.
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.
