Shared Fitness Tracker
3.15.13~ I have gotten to a point in my journey where I'm stuck. I feel like I am stagnating, and worse, going backwards right now, so its time to go back to the beginning and look at this journey with fresh eyes. I've lost a lot of weight, 54 lbs and now fit into regular size clothes. Over the last 5 1/2 months I have seen my progress fall short, then stop. I had some initial success when I removed myself from a situation that was very toxic for me, but have since slipped way off track. I have sadly regained about 10 lbs in the last 6 weeks due to lack of exercise and eating way too much of the wrong things. So I am re-booting my program. I am not really re-starting because I haven't completely stopped, just going back to the small steps that I started with to get everything back on track again... to get my motivation, determination and drive back! That means stepping up my presence here on Spark again as well! So here we go!
Get back to the basics:
1. 8 glasses of water daily (at least)
2. 10 minutes of fitness daily (at least)
3. Track food
4. Track fitness
5. Blog or Journal daily
My home gym, DVDs, walking & running
I was born and raised in Southern California, but moved to the Pacific Northwest in April of 2011. (I currently live in northern Seattle).
I love all things Disney and even named my 4 year old Tuxedo kitty "Disney"
I am currently 41, single and have no children (aside from my fur-baby).
I also love to read, walk everywhere and listen to music.

Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL
This is the best time of the year for you to begin anew as your Sun sign gives you strength to make a fresh start. Cancer is a wonderful sign for a woman to be as it is the sign of the mother, who is in control of her family. You have tenacity to stay with and finish any task you start. You can be a nag and you want everything don't yesterday and done your way. Often you are the "Little Red Hen" who ends up doing it all. Learn to direct others so they take part in the work. Cancer can certainly have a weight problem as she loves to cook and to eat. But, she also has tenacity and can exercise and keep herself fit if she wants as this is her way to setting an example to those around her. She gets along with Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus, Pisces and Scorpio. She is a saver and most often has her secret cash account.
She can have health issues with her breasts.
In Cancer the Sun is receptive and moody. You are a very sensitive person who is easily influenced by your environment. You are likely to be exceedingly protective of your feelings, as well as the feelings of those to whom you are close. Emotions are strong in your nature. You approach life with many feelings and a strong nurturing tendency. Your moods are varied and changeable. They are synchronized to the Moon, flowing in and out like the tide. You are acutely aware of the atmosphere of feelings surrounding you. You're skeptical and distrustful of people. It's not what they say, but simply the way they say it and the way you interpret their meaning.
You need to tell your deepest thoughts. When those around you are not receptive, you can become quite difficult to reach. The "crabby" part of Cancer shows up once in awhile, as well. When these moods are in control of your behavior, you can snap someone's head off for no reason at all. People you live around have to learn that you are not really angry with them. This is just the way Moon children are sometimes. By nature you are quiet and somewhat reserved, frequently retreating or putting up a protective barrier when you feel in any way threatened.
You are attuned to the past. You tend to cling to reminders and memorabilia of your family and of earlier times. Many Cancers are attracted to collecting antiques. You may be one of those people who collects just about everything. It's hard for you to part with something when there may be a chance need some rainy day, no matter how remote that chance may be. Cancers are the original "pack-rats."
You place much importance on the home and family. Your family or your "family of friends" is the center of your life. They provide you your sense of security and belonging. Your role in this environment is the source of your self-esteem and often overshadow your sense of individuality. It's hard to break away from your early upbringing and depart from the family traditions you have experienced. Cancer is the sign of motherhood. In both sexes, it produces a parenting instinct that is caring, protective, and indulging. Even unmarried Cancers adopt friends, co-workers, and neighbors in an extended family situation.
Hardworking and dedicated, you make an excellent employee. You are loyal and respect authority. This makes you supportive and protective of the boss and rarely questioning company policy. You do find it very difficult to handle change and disruption. If you are the boss, you like your employees to be dedicated as you are. Unfortunately, sometimes you may surround yourself with "yes men" who simply reinforce your decisions. You don't take chances or risk sweeping change.
Money is very important to you. Not for what it will buy or for the freedom it provides, but for the sense of security it provides. No matter what else is to be said of Cancer, security and having the protective shell in place, is overriding. -
