chinese food and cake, cake, cake!


This is either a late Monday check in or a timely one for Tuesday. Part of the reason I'm late is probably the lack of anything worthy to share. I only have my crazy eating activities over the weekend ( including one movie night out, two lush birthday dinners) and the other "part" is 'cause rl has been real busy.

so to recap my last few days...

For those of you interested in the Twilight movie, we did enjoy it. It was fun- and unintentionally funNY in certain parts and made for an entertaining night out. We did go an HOUR early and still had to sit in the very front section- *sigh* Going on Opening Night is apparently a tad crazy. Who would have guessed?!
I think it helped having read the books to really "get" the movie's. kwim? Lots of stuff breezed over for the uninformed- as is kind of usual in movies based on books, I think.

sidenote: We were actually surprised at the groups of young men who went to the movie- without dates even. Not that there's anything wrong with that (as they say). The boys sitting next to me in the front section were very well behaved and seemed to enjoy the movie. They even clapped at the end. very cute, eh? I was worried about how they'd be at the start what with their cell phones out, texting and all.


On Saturday, my inlaws had us for Chinese food (low point food indeedy!) and a Bailey's cake (next to nothing in points, I tell ya!) for a belated bday celebration. The evening ended with a family skate at a local arena though- so that was fun (and more WW worthy). We hope to do family skates more often this winter. Hopefully, we're not all talk. Sometimes we're all talk.

On Sunday we went to TO to my sister's for yet another bday dinner. She is an amazing cook and made a lovely spread (roast pork with stuffing, mashed sweet potatoes, delicious salad, cake with ganache...) that wasn't lacking for points either. I enjoyed every mouthful. :) We did go for a walk briefly before dinner, window shopping. Does that help? not really?


I was better on exercise on Monday (step and boot camp). Boot camp was especially tough. A different instructor did the warmup, which was more WORKOUT than warmup. I do feel my clothes fitting me better even with my yoyo-ing weight due to party cals- and I think it's the boot camp that's helping. So yeah for boot camp!

My pic is of 2 videos I picked up at the library tonight. Fitness Fig's favourite fitness lady. I'm going to make myself add in more home exercise this week. Plus, stop all the bday celebrating. Enough already people- I know you love me! At this rate there will be a lot MORE of me to love by Christmas. ;)

So glad you enjoyed the birthday festivities!
