Empower yourself today by not saying yes when you really mean no. Don’t allow anyone to intimidate you into going along with a plan that doesn’t feel right. You are sometimes your own worst enemy when it comes to sensory indulgences. Rich foods, alcohol, and poor choices in terms of the people you spend time with today could leave you with regrets. The more you resist temptation, the easier it will get. When you indulge in things that you know aren’t good for you, you are saying you don’t value yourself. Take better care of yourself.
This was my horoscope for Tuesday. Let me first give u a bit-o-background when it comes to me and astrology. I believe in it. I believe in a lot of things…which is why I bump heads with my mom…but that’s not really where I’m trying to go with this. I am a Scorpio. Read the description and you basically have me summed up. I love hard and hate harder. I’m strong willed, passionate, loyal…but if you cross me…that was a bad look. So oftentimes my horoscope relates to me. I don’t live by my horoscope. I don’t base my life decisions off of it. Hell I usually don’t even check it regularly. Over the years I’ve had horsocopes sent to my email, sent as text messages, sent to my facebook…but eventually they all get later and later in the day. To me, don’t send me a horoscope if you’re not going to send it before noon! So I have a horoscope app on my phone, and I usually don’t even remember to look at it. But I did this Tuesday night and the above is what it said. And it really spoke to me. Especially the second part:

I currently am not a big drinker (not because I don’t like to drink! but I usually drink when I go out or go out to dinner) but the rich foods and poor choices…yeah that’s talking directly to me! You know how when you’re in church, and the preacher will say something and it’s like a spotlight was just cast on you! Yeah, that’s how this is…it’s like my slap in the face…I’m saying that I don’t value myself enough to do better by myself. Like I know to do better, I know to eat better, I know to go for water instead of soda, I know to workout daily…I know I know I know but I don’t always do. And then I’m mad when I don’t have clothes that fit. So I took this advice the other day when I did my Pilates workout. It was my first one in like forever, at least I don’t recall doing pilates since Jordan was born. And although, two days later I’m still sore in the deepest fibers of muscles I didn’t know I had!; it’s a good feeling. Because I know that it only takes a short Pilates session to make a big difference. I’ve rededicated and recommitted myself to myself, because I’m worth it. I deserve to have the things I want in life. And I may not be able to control necessarily how much money I can make, or what circumstances life throws my way, but I can, as long as I have health and the ability, I can make the daily decision to do right by my body…to get the workouts in and to eat well. I know I can do it. It’s been done before.
