Light Reading

Sunday, March 28, 2010

Just finished reading Dear John, I have yet to see the movie though.

It was a bit depressing towards the end, I like books with happy endings, and this was not it. I think I might skip over the movie. Even though the ending was not what I wanted, it did make a great gym book. It was very engaging, so I could easily knock out 40 - 60 minutes on the elliptical or stair climber without even realizing it b/c I was so involved in the book. The only challenge came when I hit the very emotional parts - I had to try extra hard to hold back my tears so everyone at the gym wouldn't think I was some crazy nut!

I already have my next book in mind, I will have to keep you posted.

I did manage to make it out to the movies last night, and we saw a great one! I would recommend this to anyone who liked The Hangover or Zombieland. I don't see movies twice, but I would absolutely pay to watch this again!

I did overdo it a bit at the theatre though, I had a pretzel which turned out to be about 10 points! I might as well have gotten popcorn for that many points. But just have to learn from my mistakes - I can't change the past. I did much better today, stayed within my points and started my Month 2 of Insanity workouts. Looking forward to an exciting and tough 4 weeks ahead.

    Yes, we learn from our mistakes... I had a caramilk cone today... and then I walked an extra 35 min to wear off those extra calories. Will think twice b4 I indulge next time.
