Calm Waters

I put these Operation Beautiful post-its up at work. I felt awesome doing it anonymously.

Anyone want to know how the Stress Cleanse is going? Glad you asked!

I feel pretty damn good. Very emotionally even. Nothing has stressed me at work this week AND my boss is out AND my staff is out. No unusual bathroom behavior. They say not to exercise too much, but I don't feel weak or think what I'm doing is extremely hard.

The landlords have missed their chance to increase the rent, for the 4th time. Of course, they can still ask me to move, but they have to give me 60 days' notice. As usual, I know it isn't over yet, but I am breathing easier. I know they don't want to give up the easy money.

NOTE: I manipulated this workout to test how my left knee felt. Seems OK while moving, but afterwards the kneecap felt like it needed to crack/pop. I also wanted to see what my HR would sustain at if the incline didn't change.

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.
