So we have this ritual that we do every year at this time. We try and get in the best pictures before tonight, Academy Awards Ceremony. On Thursday Alan said, the Academy Awards are Sunday, lets see what we can see before then. There started the mission. Thursday night I met Alan at a theater that was still showing two of the movies, The Last Station and Precious. We double featured it. I bought us both Subway on our way to the movie along with sliced apples for me. I had a late lunch so I opted to wait to eat my subway between the two movies. Alan on the other hand ate his subway during the first movie, then had the greasiest popcorn along with some butterfingers during the second show. I also had carrot sticks with me so I munched on my imaginary popcorn (carrots) while he ate his popcorn & candy.
Friday followed with a 3pm showing of "An Education", it is funny how prone we all are to want to have something to munch on while watching a film. I brought my own popcorn and candy, now..don't laugh...I brought in carrots, an apple and a couple of prunes! I was just as satisfied as Alan was with his candy. I can't begin to tell you how strong my sniffer was, I could taste Alan's chocolate in my mouth! No I did not make any bad choices!!
So, last night took us out one more time, this time we had a little more than an hour between our first film and our second. We saw, "Up in the Air" then went to the Macaroni Grill for dinner. I ordered a salad along with the balsamic chicken over angel hair with a side of broccoli. I broke down a little and had some of their bread, but kept it to a minimum. I ate a small portion of my chicken and gave Alan the rest and focused on all of my broccoli and some of my pasta. Back we went to the movie for our next feature film, "Crazy Heart", the best of all the movies we saw this weekend. It is great seeing someone clean up their act and make it right. It is inspiring! Just like so many of the blogs I read!!!!
We finished the night off watching our last film, "The Hurt Locker" on our couch.
So we are all set for the Academy Awards Ceremony tonight, and to get all revved up, I am heading to my elliptical now, then my treadmill, and lastly its another beautiful day here so my dogs are being treated with walks. My hopes is to award myself with at least a 1,000 calorie burn today. After all, I am 28 days away from checking in to Fitness Ridge!!
Happy Sunday to all, see you at the movies..............
