Subliminal Saboteur

I had a moment as I neared the 40-minute mark of my 60-minute, 648-calorie, cardio workout tonight. When the incline hit 8.5 and I closed my eyes as I usually do, I saw myself climbing a very steep hill and when I looked up, I saw a rather good-looking gentleman standing there with open arms. I must say, he looked a little like this:

I've also discovered a subliminal saboteur (thanks in part to Carolina's sabotage post). For me, they are the nearly constant food advertisements on television. So, I'm DVRing all my shows now and I'm fast-forwarding through the ads. AND...and this I think is key...I'm not putting the tv on the treadmill anymore. In 60 minutes I would see at least 7 ads for food. Now I just have to stare back at my face. No, I can't read. I do that for a living. Not doing it on the treadmill.

I haven't seen toll booth guy since Friday. Wicked bummah. Maybe tomorrow.

I have a dinner date with a local guy tomorrow. I'm thinking he could be a friend. We'll see.

Sounds like the perfect job for an Ipod. I find, for me, that music makes my workout go by so fast. I hardly feel like it's been anytime at all, and it'll already be 30 minutes.

Hope you have a nice time with local guy. And what's up with toll booth guy? Why haven't you seen him? Has he been 'off'?

I was going to be naughty and suggest that you watch x-rated movies on the treadmill =D

I'm with Soxy Deb, music is necessary for my workout. The treadmills at the gym have built in t.v's and I've noticed that they just distract me.

What's the dude situation these days?

you're like butter to me

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.
