Yes folks, that would be the movie theater.
I watched Secretariat with my oldest (who for some reason has a five day weekend off school).
Good movie, even though you already know the ending...the still manage to make you tense.
And anyone who knows me, knows that popcorn is my kryptonite.
I didn't have popcorn, but did have chips.
calories in at 1679.
If I would have bought popcorn, the damage would have been astronomical.
I consider it even steven. I don't watch many movies and have been waiting many moons for this one.
exercise in at 650 calories burned.
I had a great workout.
all told around a 400 calorie deficit.
I ellipticaled...I sprinted...I weight lifted.
It was great.
I also talked to a personal trainer about a consultation.
I want to take off 8 or 9 more lbs of fat before I start sculpting my body into the shape I want it to be as the last 5-10 lbs come off.
I want to figure out a workout schedule I can do for the rest of my life that will give me variation and intensity and not wear out my joints.
So, go to a professional.
I meet with her this thursday.
I have all sorts of ideas bouncing around in my head.
Things about my ability to apply the lessons I learned from weight loss to the rest of my life..
to how much verbal litter there seems to be in the media.
I think I have talked about this before.
People talk twice as much as they listen and about fifty times more than they think.
I can feel my bs meter pinging half the time.
Jingoism is a particular irritant.
I don't like it when anybody does it.
Reducing life to slogans irritates the crap out of me.
You see it all the time via bumper stickers.
Then you get the people who get verbal Diarrhea with the bumper stickers.
left or right..you are never going to fit the entirety of your personal convictions on the back of your vehicle.
I know you want to seem complex and multifaceted...like a thinker.
But you just come off as obnoxious and confused...so please stop.
still working my way through Luke.
I took back something I bought yesterday on a whim.
It cost too much and went against my "money is a tool not a toy" idea. (this could count as bumperstickerish..but there is truth in it and I didn't slap it on my vehicle.)
I sometimes think I use money like I used to use food, as a distraction to thinking and moving forward.
It was embarrassing to take the item back, but not as awful as the feeling I got every time I looked at the stupid item taking up space in my closet.
Stop filling up boredom with exteriors.
Have a good one guys,
