The Reviews Are In...And I STILL Liked The Movie.

It’s Monday again but it isn’t terrible. The only complaint I have is that it is miserably hot outside. I think the worst thing about the heat is knowing that it’s only going to get much worse before it gets any better. The good thing is that I am sort of used to it but I still prefer winter much more.

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I had a great one...I saw Sex and the City 2 on Saturday and I actually liked it. I had heard absolutely nothing good about it...I have to say...if you watched Sex and the City as a series, the movies are not far off from the show. I had many problems with the first one...I didn’t think it captured the fun nature of the show so I was really worried about this one...especially after the reviews. I don’t think that the movie is going to win any awards or gain critical acclaim but overall I thought it was fun and I really enjoyed it. It had all of the aspects of Sex and the City. I normally like short movies as well and this one is over 2-1/2 hours but I wasn’t bored at all. I guess I just took the movie for what it was...and I’m glad I had low expectations because I had fun and I’m glad I saw it. For those who didn't like it, no judgment because you are entitled to your own opinion...but I'm curious...why? I know I heard people say that it was cliche and that there was overacting but honestly one of the characteristics of the show was the silly one-liners and elaborate emotions and outfits...it's supposed to be dramatic...in my opinion...but that's just me.

The only damper to Saturday was that this was the first Saturday in a long time that I was very strict on Weight Watchers. It was all part of my initiative to Jettison the Junk in June. I did perfectly but I was hungry most of the day. I know that it was all in my head because I had two full meals and snacks but I couldn’t help but feeling like I was starving. The good news is that I made it through my first Saturday in June AND I am almost right back to where I was before my birthday as far as weight goes. The bad news is that I took my cheat day to heart and ugh...I was feeling so sick last night. There was fried food and cupcakes...it was all good but blech...I think I will not go so crazy next Sunday...I know I say that every time.

I am going walking after work today in this horrific heat but then after that...I’m welcoming myself to some Moe’s!!! I think I will try to walk in the morning the rest of the week. I did that last week and I forgot how nice it was to be done with exercise for the day when I get off work. I also like walking by the river though which I can’t do in the mornings so as usual, I will have to mix it up.

I got some good advice from people on different ways to get personal training so when I decide to stop procrastinating...I will let you know how and if I make any progress getting rid of this sagging belly and arm fat.

I know I just sort of rambled but I didn’t have anything really in the way of a point today so I think I will quit while I’m ahead.

I hope you have a great Monday evening!!!

Peace out!
