Black Swan

I lounged around in my pajamas until about 1 p.m. today and then finally decided to eat lunch and shower. No gym for me today–my body is way too sore from Body Pump!

Even though we just had pizza at Owen’s b-day party last night, I was craving it again with veggies on top, so that’s what we made for lunch.

I also had an Oikos honey organic greek yogurt. I prefer adding my own honey to plain yogurt, as I was not that thrilled by this flavor. Caramel is most definitely my fav!

And a piece of homemade stollen, made with love by my “Mutti” or mom.
She makes stollen every Christmas.


I headed to the movie theater and met up with my friends. I also ran into Craig’s Aunt and Uncle there. They were going to Black Swan too.

I enjoyed Black Swan and so did my friends. I think Natalie Portman deserves the Oscar for Best Actress or at least the nomination. She definitely played the perfectionist ballerina well. I could say more, but you’ll have to see the movie yourself to get all of the details. I don’t want to give any of the plot away.

And now, Craig and I are watching Fargo, you betcha! As a result, we are walking around the house talking like Northern Midwesterners, don’t cha know. 😉

So sad that the end of my weekend is near. I enjoyed my three days off. Can’t believe Christmas is this week!


Movie day

I go to movies in the theater about 3 times a year. I have to really want to see a movie in order to pay about $10 to see it in the theater. Otherwise, I checkout DVDs from the library. This year, I have seen Avatar, Inception and Eat Pray Love in the the theater. I have seen some movies on the big screen for free. For some reason, all I can remember seeing for free is The Social Network.

Today is a treat because I am meeting two of my friends to see Black Swan this afternoon. I heard it was good and I expect it to be “dark” as I have read in some of the reviews.

I got to sleep in a little this morning. Surprisingly, the cats were not whining at the baby gates for us to feed them. Neither seemed to have an appetite after I removed the gates either. This worries me a little bit because I keep thinking that once Karma loses his appetite, the rest is downhill for his health. I hope this isn’t the case.

I was hungry this morning and had coffee, Kashi’s Go Lean Crisp! Toasted Berry Crumble and a clementine. The cereal was just ok. I received a little sample in the mail through Vocalpoint and some nice coupons, so I bought a big box at the store yesterday before I even tried it.


One of my favorite TV shows, CBS Sunday Morning, had my favorite actor on it today: Matt Damon! I have loved Matt Damon since Good Will Hunting. He’s so down to earth (and not bad to look at either).



It’s almost noon, so time to shower and figure out what to eat for lunch.
My tummy is grumbling again.

I haven’t decided if my sore body means I should take a rest day from the gym or not. I kind of want to go swimming, but we’ll see how I feel after the movie.

Body pump & b-day party

We got home late last night, so I didn’t blog about yesterday’s events.

Here is a recap of my Saturday:

Had some breakfast before the gym. Coffee, toast with NuttZo, Oikos plain greek yogurt with sliced almonds and honey.


I met Angie at the Y for Body Pump at 9:15. It was a challenging class. I can tell by the soreness in my right thigh I am experiencing today!
