Well, first off, a very merry welcome to all of you who cross my page. I appreciate your presence here, of course! Thanks for caring! :D

The basics are I'm 24, married in May 2010 to a wonderful man, and own a horse. I also work dog and cat rescue in my spare time.

I'm not very good at this, however. I yo-yo a lot. I'm not wonderful at keeping track of myself, and the longest I've ever actually watched what I was eating was about eight months. Since then, I've gained back all of that weight and plus some. But the point is - I'm trying!

I own a ten year old gelding and he is seriously my pride and joy. I love him so much, and I want to make riding much easier on him.

So maybe with the husband's support, I can do this - and all of you can, too!

So good morning, Spark! A new day arrives. :)

PS - "Sterrett Down" is a play on my last name - which is pronounced "Stare It" - henceforth, "Stare It Down!"

I'm going to eliminate the majority of processed food from my diet and work with more raw ingredients that I have grown/canned myself. Hippie all the way baby!

I'm 24.
I like books.
I like being nerdy (I'm a gamer, a reader, a journalist, and I also enjoy all kinds of silly TV shows).
I love the grind of real life horses. My goodness, they are my life.
I like being married to a sensitive weirdo.
I don't really want kids; I feel like they aren't in my cards.

    The Sagittarius girl was probably a "Tomboy" and wanted to be outside with her Dad. She wasn't sure what he did, but she wanted to be part of it. She isn't cut out to be a Stay-at-home-mom as cleaning house isn't her real love, although she is a hard worker & can manage a family well. She just has to have other interest and use her brilliant mind to serve others.
    She certainly can be obese, since Jupiter is her ruler & Jupiter makes everything "big". But she has luck and she can talk her way into anything she wants. Being obese is HER choice, as she is a true athlete at heart, if she wants to be. That "tomboy" ability to "beat the guys" works well for her in every aspect of life, so she never has to stay fat if she doesn't want to be.
    She makes a good teacher, travel guide, writer, policewoman, horse trainer, farmer, yoga instructor, college professor, religious counselor or businesswoman. She gets along well with Libra, Gemini, Aries, Leo and Aquarius, but should avoid Scorpio who is her opposite in truth. She is outspoken and open, where he is full of secrets. He wouldn't approve of her freedom or love of spending. Sagittarius loves to give gifts, but she will always work & make more money. Her health problems can be in the hip area.

    In Sagittarius the Sun is idealistic and optimistic. Sagittarius is the sign that espouses such high principles as universal love and world peace. As this period of the year is associated with the spirit of giving and good cheer, the Sagittarius personality is recognized for its generosity and expansive demeanor.
    You are very gregarious, enthusiastic, and open, in all that you do. You have an ability to understand a broad perspective, and to see everything from a total point of view. Your foresight and an ability to visualize the big picture make matters work out well for you most of the time. Always thinking in broad abstract terms, you usually have trouble focusing on details that arise.

    In many ways you are spontaneous, but with this comes an inclination to be bluntly honest and frank, or at least, straightforward and much to the point. You never intend to hurt anyone, but the truth is all important to you, and you never hesitate to tell it like it is. Tact and restraint can be issues of concern, but you probably don't care. You are so independent. You can rarely be pushed an inch in any direction unless you decide the direction your being pushed is where you want to go.
    These blows are softened only by your warm, jovial and outgoing friendliness. Even when you stick your hoof in your mouth you can recover and show up as a winner. Often "lady luck" just smiles on you. Sagittarius has a happy-go-lucky, honest, cheerful, and ever optimistic approach to life; but then can turn right around and be so careless, restless and extravagant.
    You have a natural love of the outdoors and may develop strong enthusiasm for sports and outdoor adventure. Sagittarius is the sign most often associated with sports, and you are inclined to physical activity and active endeavors, particularly outdoors.

    Future-oriented, you rarely allow problems or setbacks to get you down for long. You put disappointment behind you and start working toward your next adventure. Never satisfied with moving along in slow lane, you want to set the pace on a grand scale. Whatever you set out to do, must be the biggest and best. You want to live life to its fullest. You can work well with anybody, accepting them for what they are. You are the natural, open-hearted extrovert, an easy person live and work with. Relying on your glibness and complete self-confidence, you are a natural in the world of selling. Still in the area of organization and perseverance you may need help from other factors in the chart. If you are like most Sagittarius natives, you can be down right irresponsible and unreliable at times. Your personality is such, however, that people don't get upset about it. It's that natural Sagittarius charm that carries you through the tough spots.
    Sagittarius is the sign of higher education. You live to expand your horizons in every possible way, wanting to see the world and experience it. You want to meet interesting people and try everything. Your curiosity is boundless and your desire for knowledge is paramount. emoticon
