I had a really good workout tonight.
I did 45 minutes on Christian and then walked for a half hour on the treadmill.
Then I did 105 situps and stretched...kept my calories to 1510 all together.
I weigh in at night at 197.
on a side note...the men may want to leave off here...lol.
I just watched 'a long hot summer' with paul newman and joanne woodward.
Paul Newman was a hottie back in the day...
He's gone now...
I've always had a thing for older movie stars....
For the longest time it was Robert Redford and William Holden.
William Holden from Picnic..Which if you've never seen, you should.
To say they don't make em like that anymore would be an understatement...
forgive me fans of brad pitt....but he always seemed a little pretty to me.
I think the closest we come these days to old school movie stars would be clive owen and gerard butler. And of course Christian Slater, but only when he is all dirtied up...think 3:10 to yuma...Batman is good as well.
Men these days tend to be a little, well....."manicured" for me.
Here is a picture of a young paul newman...
Or william holden
WOW!...that's all i'm sayin'.
Now a days...they have pretty boys like these:
Dollars to donuts he plucks, does a facial and uses moisturizer.
My daughter told me the other day that she can't find a boy to like because she is tougher than most of them...
I have to say, I had the same problem.
I don't want to be able to hip toss my significant other, if that makes me 'old fashioned' so be it.
I am so glad I don't date these days, because if the boy showed up at my door with black nail polish and eyeliner, I'd ask him if he wanted me to hold his purse while he went to the rest room.
I know i am sounding a little bit "get off my lawnish'...I think this happens as you age....the grumpies set in.
You see, it's not that I couldn't take care of myself.
I just wanted a Man that could protect me if He needed to....
Yes, I want to be strong, and tough and capable.....
But, I want my man stronger, tougher and even more capable...
I was thinking of that today while at the gym...I sometimes wonder what kind of young men we are turning out.
An alarming amount of the young ones I saw did seem a little...
I don't know what you'd call it...hat backwards and immature for their age.
I guess I am nostalgic for a time I never grew up in. You know what they say about the golden age, everyone always ran around complaining about how yellow everything was...lol.
My husband is the old fashioned type. Which is just fine with me, I would post a pic, but I think he's on to me. ( since i ran downstairs and took his pic "just because"...and then he says "you aren't going to put me on your blog are you? and I am all like NOOOOO honey'...smooth ain't I ) I will have to sneak his pic on later.
And if he is reading this, by later I mean never...
(for my readers, by later I mean when he forgets...lol)
He's my old fashioned hottie...I will just say I knew I was in love when we were caught in a blizzard in 1993 in The mountains of north carolina. we were stuck on the side of the road in a snow drift.
He took cardboard from the back of the chevy blazer and put it up inside the truck to preserve heat...He took our drinks and made a little hole outside in the snow to keep them cold.
then he got out and hiked two miles up the freeway to a store and bought us food and brought it back and kept it cold outside as well. Every two hours he would go out and make sure our tailpipe was clear and then run the truck to keep it warm. I couldn't have been more impressed if he had walked on the moon. The next day the snow plows came out and we were on our way....four people died that night on that stretch of highway.
Let's hear it for old fashioned men.....yay!
What do you love about your husbands or boyfriends....or if the men have stayed around this long (kudos on your endurance) What did you admire about your fathers?
