Max heart rate: 165
Workout mode: RANDOM mode level 18@2.8 mph
Calories: 435 Distance: 1.38 Time: 35:00

NOTE: 24-minute mile. Cool. I found myself thinking about everyone who has battled cancer and survived, like Lance Armstrong. I imagined my fat as a cancer that was going to eat away at the rest of my life if I didn't do something about it. You know those Quit Smoking ad campaigns where they ask "If you weren't planning to quit, what are you planning?" Well, that applies here too. "If you're not planning to lose weight, what are you planning to do?" Seriously.

I agree with Sarah. You're definitely pretty awesome. Pretty awesome workout as well.

Great post. You've got my motivation kicked in. I really sat back and thought " What the #*(&% am I planning?" I've been on cruise control for the past few months. Time to kick it into gear. Thanks for that!

On to more reads. Catch up time is here!

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.
