I always start things with good intentions - not just "this" but everything. Except for maybe dinner.. that doesn't take that long. I can cook a meal to completion.

Its like I find something I am interested in or want to do and I jump in. I overwhelm myself with information until I have no idea what is going on and I am confused and annoyed because I am focused on the end result and not the process. I am defiantly one of those people who works out and thinks I should be a size two the next day. Not that I want to be a size two - it was just an example.

So in January/February of this year I started running with a 5k walk/run program. That first day..that first week was a BITCH. I was a smoker at the time and that first 60 second jog my lungs were on fire. I decided that I needed to make a choice.

Run or smoke?

I chose to run and followed the program until I ran my first (and today only) 5k on March 12. Ironically, after I ran I started smoking again. I told myself it was just one.. and then from one it has once again increased to a two pack a day diet. I have continued to run a few times a week.

June 1 I registered for the White Rock Marathon which will be no December 4, 2011. That is my big goal for this year. One of them. The other is to quit smoking for good. Of course I have to quit smoking to run a marathon.

I am on the patch now - yes right this minute. Of course, I still had 4 cigarettes from yesterday. They are gone now. Still I smoked them so I will count tomorrow, June 9 as my day one.

I am leaving some of this old information up just as a reminder to myself that I can do this. It is motivational for me.

    Those born on the Virgo-Libra cusp enjoy beauty and all things sensual. They may find themselves drawn to the arts, attractive people, and precious objects or wish to make themselves and their surroundings more pleasing to the eye. They have a great mind for details, and do a terrific job running a business or planning a large gathering because of this talent.
    Virgo-Libra may be conflicted in some areas. While both signs Virgo and Libra are concerned with taste and aesthetics, they can lack in emotional or intuitive areas. They may find that what is pretty on the outside isn't so nice on the inside. Ultimately to be happy, they need to make the inside beautiful, too.
    If they want to succeed, they should stop being so concerned with appearances. They should keep their search for beauty alive, and try to keep from becoming compulsive or cynical. They should not neglect their spirituality or get too caught up in materialism.
    Virgo-Libra is responsible and they attempt to be as fair as possible. They are good team workers, but they can lack self-confidence. They are polite and open-minded, but they love a good debate. Kind and considerate, they rarely show their anger in public. Instead, they may use some subtle way to get even.

    Virgo-Libra is health-conscious, which helps them take good care of themselves and their children. They like to exercise, though they do have a definite lazy streak. Think of the cat, stretched out in the sunny patch on the sofa: that is Virgo-Libra. Exercise is more appealing when they can socialize at the same time.
    In love, those born on the Virgo-Libra cusp are romantic, devoted and playful. They pick up the important little details that delight their partner. They want a peaceful, harmonious relationship. They can see all sides of a situation which can make them very just, but can prove maddening to those around them at times.
    They may have issues with being satisfied. No matter how good something is, they can still see flaws. If something is imperfect, they are inclined to get rid of it. Tiny flaws will eat at them until they can get them fixed.
    Persons born on the cusp of Virgo-Libra are practical, hard working, diligent, meticulous, attractive, logical, charming, shy, modest, efficient, romantic, devoted and polite. They can also be unfair, aloof, easily influenced, self-indulgent, fussy, insecure, have hypochondriac tendencies and indecisive. The Cusp of Beauty sounds pleasant, but it can be a harsh taskmaster.
    They love nature and their feet are firmly grounded. Their heads are still way up in the air, though. They may be artistic, or be able to design their home in the most aesthetic styles. They like science.
