The Next Right Choice

Just another day in my life. The Sox have lost 1st place. To the Yankers. They need to get it back.

I'm logging my workouts, because the crackberry is acting funny and I don't want to lose the data. As I write all this down, I can't help but think "If this doesn't show a loss on Monday, I'm doing something wrong..."

Well, whatever. I'm feeling good. The number on the scale doesn't matter all that much. Just going to drink a gallon of water, do some laundry, take a power nap in the hammock, and toss the frisbee for the Chadster.

Looking foward to meeting the blue-eyed Jersey Boy tonight. And if I can beat him at Monster mini golf, all the better! Mmmwwhhhaaaaa!

Note: Level 19 is feeling really good. I could feel every cell in my body come alive as I reached 14.2% incline. I was climbing a mountain, putting my special mountain climbing boots all over ManBearPig heads. It was empowering.

Note: Welcome to my weight machine sandwich with some cardio bread. Taste? Dry. I did not feel well with Ab Press. I felt it was hurting my lower back exactly at the problem area. I will probably just do my own mini crunches at home flat on my back on the bed. No reason why that can't be effective for now. I also had to really "trick" myself on the 2nd cardio, which is never an issue when I do a straight 60 minutes. I had to tell myself, "Just try to make it to 10 minutes, then you can stop. Just try to make it another 5 minutes." Saturday morning, my legs felt tight. That's a good thing. They're supposed to feel something!

Still chuckling over this: "I was climbing a mountain, putting my special mountain climbing boots all over ManBearPig heads. It was empowering." Hysterical.

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.
