The Comfort & The Hazard

Pounds lost: 4 lbs
Pounds to go: 47 lbs

Wow. As usual, I am always surprised by what happens when I apply effort to my weight loss. I know it is all within my control, but it is perhaps the hardest thing to remember when everything else feels out of my control in life.

Food is certainly the one constant, the one reliable element. Friends have their own lives, work is work, but food is both the comfort and the hazard. At the end of the day, it is like a co-dependent relationship I must keep in check. Food will stick to me, because it has no ability not to do so. Sorry food, I have to be the responsible one here.

On that note, I don't know if it is a good or bad thing, but I have fallen head over heels for a particular tea. In the past, I've spoken about the cleansing green tea, but this is purely for taste. It is Coconut Vanilla black tea. Absolute heaven. I feel like a cup is so delicious it tastes like dessert. And while I am sure the caffeine is not the greatest thing, if it keeps me from wanting chocolate chip cookies, then I'll keep the trade-off!

Just a Lovable Party Girl

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
