L.A.Big5K - March 8 - 52:41 **same hills as last year, this was a weird one. Although it is the slowest race I've done since I started running, it's also the one where I've run for longer distances without walking. Go figure! I'm still processing my execution. Once I'm done processing, I'll delete this note and post a blog or vlog.

I am no longer looking into the future... I'm living the NOW!! Tomorrow's not a promise, but today is completely full of possibilities. I'm willing to work hard and put into this journey what I'm hoping to get out of it. I'm gonna work my butt off, eat healthy, work on my positive mentality, and do my best to achieve great results. I read this in someone's blog and she's sooo right: this isn't a race, it's a journey. I'm working at being healthy, but also on having one heck of a journey!!

I stole this prayer from a DONE sister's SparkPage... I hope she doesnt mind, but I thought it was fitting to me as well:

Dear God,
I surrender my body & my weight loss to your divine care and love. I ask that you remove all excess & unnecessary weight from my body. Return my body to its most healthy & balanced state. Give me eating habits that support my health & life energy. And, finally, teach me to love my body & to care for it from this day forth. AMEN

Be strong & courageous. Do not be discouraged; do not be terrified, for the Lord, my God, will be with me wherever I go.

emoticon Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL

The Taurus girl is born to a mother she can never live up to and because her mother pushes her she becomes very stubborn. As a Taurus, you are likely to be very patient, a hard worker, and one of those people who constantly puts forth much sustained effort. Your demeanor is slow and deliberate, and attempts by others to hurry you rarely succeed. You need time to adjust to new ideas and changes. You can be stubborn to the point of becoming rigid, but you are practical and constructive in nearly everything you do. You carefully consider options before starting any action or coming to any conclusion. You function best under conditions where there is predictability, and where you can exercise a degree of control.
Good-natured and friendly, your placid demeanor rarely shows upset or anger. When you are aroused, as suggested by the symbol of the sign, your reactions are very much like those of the angered bull. This anger can be reckless, and often lingers.
There is a certain reluctance in the Taurus nature to try anything new or different. You don't take many chances, and you believe in sticking with the familiar and comfortable. There is not much adventure in your soul, and it is probably fair to label you a conservative individual. The danger with Taurus is the tendency to become too narrow-minded, and to dismiss anything that can't be seen, touched, smelled or tasted.
You are not usually the first to learn a lesson, but when it is mastered, you are not likely ever to forget. Retentive and steadfast, you don't scatter your energies. You may be lazy at times, perhaps not spending any energy at all for extended periods. Yet long term, you are very willing to assume responsibility and shoulder more than your fair share of the load.
You may be materialistic, often showing interests in money, security, and comforts in life. To those you love, you often show your feelings in a material way, and you appreciate the same in return. The Taurus personality is sometimes too concerned with money and possessions. Perhaps a little indulgent and luxury-loving, you relish creature comforts and appreciate beautiful possessions. Because of these interests, you have good taste in clothing and furnishings. You also may have a talent for landscaping and working with plants and flowers to make your surrounding more pleasant and appealing.
You may excel as a cook, but even if you don't have the inclination to prepare it, you certainly enjoy food; perhaps too much. Because of this, you may have a battle with your weight. A slow metabolism and lack of interest in exercise often compound this problem.
A natural interest in art and music often leads to careers or hobby pursuits in some form of art. Taurus is the sign that rules the throat, so you may have a fine singing and speaking voice.
Love relationships are very important to you. Since you don't like being alone, you may settle for a partnership that is less than ideal, instead of accepting loneliness. Once settled in a relationship, you are very steadfast and dependable. You are exceedingly loyal, and make a very faithful friend. The most appealing aspect of Taurus, that sweet and loving temperament, is the often present when the Sun appears in Taurus.
