Sharing a Horoscope?....Say, what??

Okay, ridiculous as most people think they are, there is still the occasional horoscope which comes my way that is incredibly right on the mark. This is one of those since this was just my plan for this week, to jumpstart my new healthier lifestyle.

Drop and give ’em 20! Spring training begins this week as the Sun shifts into Aries and your sixth house of healthy living for a month. Shimmy into the Lycra and start exploring new forms of exercise. You need a combination of upbeat, energetic movements and flowy, meditative movements. Mix it up: an invigorating Zumba or African dance class on Mondays, Vinyasa flow or ballet barre on Wednesday, a run through the park on Saturdays. Variety is the spice that will keep you motivated.

Get your eating habits into a structure of sorts (not to be confused with a conventional diet). Tracking your food in an app or a food journal will keep you on point, ensuring that you ingest the right amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, veggies and so on in any given day. Eating at regular intervals is what keeps you fueled up all day. Feed yourself the good stuff too. Cut back on the packaged, processed goods and opt for fresh and natural. Although it might cost a few extra bucks, buying consciously farmed products, like free-range animal products and some organic fruits and veggies, has a holistically nourishing effect on your life. If you plan your recipes carefully, this doesn’t have to break the bank. Ditto for your cleaning products. Instead of blasting your home with bleach spray, whip up a lemon juice and tea tree oil disinfectant. Check out sites like thedailygreen.com for DIY concoctions that won’t harm the environment. Your au naturel glow is “au-so” radiant, Scorpio, attracting healthier, more grounded people into your world.

If you fall off track with your new routine on Friday, don’t beat yourself up. There’s a tendency toward perfectionism near the weekend, which can cause you to rebel and do the exact opposite of what you intended to do. If you get off track, don’t dwell on it. Forgive yourself, then recommit to your healthy goals. You can’t change the past, but you can create the future in every moment.
