Someone please tell me WHY I keep waking up at 4:20am and not able to go back to sleep? Those 40 minutes are precious! I had to drag myself out of bed again yesterday morning. It may or may not have had something to do with the fact that I didn’t go to bed until almost 11pm the night before. What was that I wrote about the importance of sleep? I was fortunate enough to be able to take another nap in the afternoon and felt much better. I hate going into the beginning of the week (Friday is our Monday) exhausted.
After I had woken up a bit, I had some breakfast.
Got ready for my date with Prince Charming!
Played with my new Hipstamatic app.
Not sure how I feel about it yet….
Jimi Hendrix Tee: stolen from Daniel’s closet
Jeans: American Eagle
Shoes: old? Payless or Target most likely
Jewelry: Charming Charlie
Leather Cuff: church gift shop
I am so glad I did because I had no idea The Hunger Games would be 2.5 hours! It wasn’t until after 2pm that we ate lunch.
Sadly we did not go to Mimi’s….again
We went to Schlotzsky’s and it was a good substitution. I got the small smoked turkey breast, baked bbq chips, a Diet Dr Pepper & a yummy cookie! I ate all of my meal which was shocking to the both of us because I usually eat all of my chips and 1/4 of my sandwich. Then an hour later I finish it at home. Not today, I was famished!
So about the movie….
Please forgive me if I ramble. I was just so impressed with so many things I can’t even organize them into a seamless thought pattern. I was surprised that I was brought to tears in a few scenes….Jennifer Lawrence is a SUPERB actress. Her ability to deliver the emotions of the book was nothing short of outstanding. I thought all of the actors were remarkably true to the characters in the book. Effie was brilliant. I was thoroughly impressed with how Woody Harrelson played Haymitch. It’s incredibly refreshing to see a female heroine. Strong, yet vulnerable. How many women in our society can identify with Katniss Everdeen? It was just phenomenal. Although I LOVED it, there were a few things I wasn’t happy about. How in the world did this movie get a PG-13 rating? It was so brutal and the situational content was a bit mature in my opinion. Then again, I wouldn’t let my 13 year old see Breaking Dawn either. That’s just me. The other thing was how shaky the filming was. I understand it was for effect but man, it was giving me a headache. The director could have scaled back on that. I have not read the second book yet, but it is waiting for me! I will probably spend most of the weekend devouring it.
Dinner was leftovers.
….and for dessert I had two pieces of Jaime’s bread with some peanut butter on top. Everything is better with a little PB.
It’s back to “work” today! I am not sure what I am going to do for my workout. Most likely a long cardio session since tomorrow I am planning to do Shred in the afternoon.
Happy Friday everyone!
