A nice Saturday! Woke up to a few inches of snow that we weren’t expecting! Here I am in the blue snow glow of the morning (eating a balance bar):
Oh well – I waded through it to get to the car and hit the gym. I got there right when it opened and I was the only one there for a while. It was not any more crowded than Saturdays normally are, so don’t know if anyone new has joined with the new year. The weather might have kept some people away. I hopped on the treadmill and busted out 5 miles, pretty much straight forward. I did 3 of the miles at 6mph. For some reason, it went really fast. John met me at the gym and then we picked up my mother to go out for brekkie. My dad opted out today. Hit up Panera Bread, where I got a cranberry nut bagel.
Very tasty! Plus about 3 cups of coffee 😳 After our relaxing and chatting, we didn’t get home until after 11! I finally got in a shower by noon.
Had a quick lunch of tuna salad on a waffle and the last of the strawberries.
Then we went out to a matinee movie. I have not been to the theater since Dark Knight. That’s 1.5 years ago! I’m very picky about my movies, not to mention the expense. Plus, usually someone ruins the movie by talking too much. Anyhoo – we saw this movie!
I really liked it. Disney went back to hand animation for this film and it was beautiful. Classic Disney! Yay! Definitely recommend this for anyone to see, although it might be a little scary in parts for smaller children. And it makes me want to eat beignets 😀
We realized that we hadn’t had our lattes when we got home- so we pushed back dinner to enjoy these:
Plus a bit of dark chocolate.
Finally getting leftovers cleared out of the fridge. Stir-fry for dinner with cooked chicken, broccoli, pineapple, and teriyaki sauce.
Who says leftovers can’t be good!
Doing well with the eating this weekend, which is a good start to the year. Tomorrow will be a test, as it starts the work week for me and Sundays tend to be problematic. Hopefully I can get some good sleep tonight.
I seem to struggle with sleeping late enough and it doesn’t matter if the room is dark or not (and caffeine or not seems to make no difference). John suggested that I might need a more substantial evening snack or a later snack because I might just be waking up because I am very hungry (which I am). So, I might try that this week and see what happens.
Question: How often do you go to the movies? What was the last one you saw?
