We might as well talk about Black Swan first.
Because I’m still kind of feeling weird. And just uncomfortable in general.
Mon and I went to see it last night.
We both agreed that it was pretty good. Natalie and Mila NAILED their parts. Impressive for sure.
But it is definitely one of those movies where you leave feeling really “blah” about life afterwards. I got the same feeling when I left the theater after seeing Revolutionary Road. And on the way home, all you can say is, “wow… that would really suck”.
And that’s all I’ll say about that.
Because I was feeling good for the rest of the day. Not that I did a whole lot. I took my Christmas tree down. Does that count as productive? Even if I should probably have put it away earlier? Considering one year, we kept the decorations on the tree through most of February (Valentine’s Day tree?) and the tree was still in our living room until April (couldn’t make this up if I wanted to), I thought getting the tree down yesterday was quite the accomplishment.
Do you have anything like that? Where, at some point, you just don’t notice how obnoxious it is?
One thing I do know is that my dinner last night before the movie was obnoxiously good (like how I did that? Corny? Oh yeah…).Hey James! Not diggin’ the mustache so much, but since I heart you, I’m willing to let it slide…
Guacamole, salsa, corn, sharp cheddar and sour cream.
The guacamole was part of a two-pack bought from Trader Joe’s a little while ago. It suggested to use one and freeze the other.
Um. It’s not as good after being frozen. Still alright- just not fantastic.
You heard it here.
Off I go. It’s been one of those mornings of piddling around. So in attempts to jump start my day, I put the “No More Trouble Zones” workout in. Now it’s a matter of pushing play.
Oh yeah, before I go (I’m procrastinating again)- I’ve been working on integrating my 8-lb weights into The Shred.
I knew some of the moves would be simple. They could have used heavier weights in the very beginning. Others? I may have done one repeat with the 8′s and one with the 5′s. The rest I didn’t even bother trying to switch it up. Baby steps. There’s no need for me to pretend I’m stronger than I really am…
Ok fine… the workout music is repeating over and over. That’s my cue. I need to go and face the music.
