Feeling Alive

Pounds lost: 14 lbs
Pounds to go: 37 lbs

Bring out the marching band baby! Hell Yes! Back out of the 60s! Fantastic! This one is going to stick.

And let me tell you, it is ALL because of my newfound sanctuary:

This is where I go when I want to eat carbs. This is the gym at around midnight Saturday. Look at all the shiny toys just waiting for ME. Don't they look so cool?

And believe me, did I ever want carbs this weekend. I wanted carbs more than I've ever wanted them. I was so stressed out, because I had a car accident on Friday night. The front tire came off my truck completely while I was driving it. The shock of the moment really didn't hit me until sometime on Saturday. But I was acutely aware immediately that this could have happened on the highway or while I was going faster or while I was in traffic. I was so lucky that I was just turning into my street and that there were no other cars or people walking by.

So I guess this puts things into perspective a little bit. Yes, losing weight is important. Yes, resisting carbs is important until I get myself into a better metabolic heart rate. But what's really important is that I'm alive to talk about it.

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.
