Today was a restful day. Since I did not have to go anywhere or do anything I decided to take it easy. I hung out with my man, watched a movie, did a little laundry. It was the perfect restful day. My energy is at a nice even level, not through the roof and out of control and not below the line. It is just perfect. I was fine without any popcorn for my movie, but I found that I was craving salt. Not salty food, I just wanted salt. So, I had a little. Mmm, yummy!
I shared my weight loss goals with a friend and she said that I had to share them on my blog. Of course, I want to get healthier and live longer. I invest time, money and energy in my health, so that it does not cost me a fortune when I get older. Someone once asked H.H. Dalai Lama what suprised him most about humanity and he replied:
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;
the result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

One person might look at me and say that I do not need to lose weight and wonder why that is a goal. Another might agree with me. At the end of the day, being comfortable in my own skin is the most important.
2. Weight loss = smaller boobs. I love my boobs (no, I am not going to show you a picture of them) but they are heavy. They make my back hurt and my shoulders round.
3. I want my belly button to look like this:
