Time alone with my TV

From this time alone I bring you some pretty groovy movies I had never seen.

Ten More Good Years (sad movie, so don’t drink prior to watching)

Ice cream sandwiches, Movies and Expectations

This weekend was uneventful.  My main objective was to work on my tan and that fell through, but I don’t think of myself as a failure. I did accomplish quite a bit for a steamy hot weekend in the south.  Saturday was busy with my sister, thrifting and movie watching. Sunday, I barely left my couch and I certainly didn’t leave my house. I did clean my house and do laundry (from start to finish!). I took a nap from 10AM-3PM and still managed to go to bed around midnight. I watched five movies over the entire weekend. Oh, and I paid two bills on time!   Oh yeah!!!

 

Jumper

 

Strange Wilderness

 

Semi-Pro (watched twice)

 

Balls of Fury

 

But by far my favorite pick of the weekend is Eagle versus Shark starring Jemaine Clement of Flight of the Conchords

 

I didn’t follow my diet plan this weekend; I didn’t even look at the e-diets website.  I need to go grocery shopping if I plan to eat according to their plan, so that won’t happen for at least a week.  Over the weekend I ate queso, ice cream sandwiches (yup I said sandwiches, plural), and instant mash potatoes. But this is a new week and a new day and a new opportunity for success. I went to log on to e-diets to enter my progress, which was surprisingly 1lb thinner (1lb sexier, 1lb closer to my new super model career)!  Then they threw up an inspirational quote “to keep up my momentum.” 

 

 
“Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.”

-Thomas Jefferson

I bet Thom was talking about weight loss; he struggled the same as I. This inspired me to change my plan off the Glycemic thing and on to a basic e-diet plan. I already love the new plan, because for lunch it says to have a Lean Cuisine beans and rice with salad and yogurt!  This sounds like a very satisfying lunch, but I’m planning on a chili dog for lunch! Okay, so tomorrow is a new day, or whatever. Tomorrow I plan to munch on Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, Spanish style. I have very low expectations, very low.

 

I’ll leave you with some fun pics, compliments of http://www.funpic.hu/en.index.php.

I know this indicates otherwise, but I swear this is in Mesquite, TX.

 

   

My co-workers and me, carpooling to work.

   WTF!  I’m scared.

 

 
Next post, I promise will be my dad’s favorite movies, of all time. He’s really putting a lot of thought into each movie selection.  He said, “I have to pick carefully, what if I’m stuck with these my whole life.”  I don’t even know what that means, so I can’t argue with it.
