Warning: Eat Pray Love will make you want to eat Pizza and fall in love with Javier Bardem
New York. Pizza. Italy. Very cool clothes. Cool Friends. Meditation. Paradise. Bali. Javier Bardem.
It isn't really just the way he looks.
It's..It's..you just have to see it.
Julia is just her Julia self.
So yes, I liked the movie. A very pleasant 2 hour diversion.
I'd read the book and enjoyed it. I'd watched the author on Oprah and learned that people were quitting their jobs to travel and try to have those kinds of experiences. I heard on the radio yesterday that some of those people are now experiencing bankruptcy. You have to keep it all in to perspective, people.
--over slept so entirely missed my workouts. I never sleep to 9:30. The A/C was cold and my dog was snuggling next to me..cozy. Sleep is precious-Guess I needed it.
Day out with my friend Lanny to see movie and chat and shop.
Movie-child's popcorn and choc cov. raisins...Late lunch: Chipotle veggie / beef bowl version of burrito. mmmmmm- lime cilantro flavors. Carvel icecream next door. I really regret that. Didn't stop me from eating it, but it wasn't so great that I feel it was worth it. How I wish we had sugar free FroYo out here in the boonies.
Shopping: I'm getting a new over the range microwave and dishwasher so had to start the shopping process for those. My current microwave is 25 years old. I'm sure my innards are half cooked. Here's me at store: "I'm just looking..no , I really, am just looking"
Post movie bookstore visit: Coffee, yum, at Borders bookstore. I had cinnamon swirl twist flavored coffee and the person at the next table turned around to comment about how good it smelled. It did. Got my first 2011 calendar-a 16 month mini Vincent Van Gogh (calendar geek) and 2 books at half price.
Shopped for Pjs-none rocked my world. picky...very picky..
But at Marshalls I bought a beautiful shirt for $20 from the Ralph Lauren line that seemed vintage and French. (When I read the description on the RL site it said it was "vintage" and had a French name. I wasn't far off. ) Only 1 item in the 2 clothing stores we went to that I liked. This is it..I could not get it zoomed in to show you up close. It does not look this revealing on me. The bat wings arm will just have to hang out a bit.
Other than some workout clothes, a concert t shirt, and my Enell bra this is the first clothing item I've bought in a very long time. I often shop in my closet. I found a pair of my old jean shorts in my husband's dirty clothes hamper ? that fit me perfectly that I haven't worn in many , many years. I will soon be retiring some other clothes that are too big.
Not really a weight-loss-journey focused entry, not a weight loss focused day, but then this is supposed to be a full life. I kind of think today was a full day. So a full life blog entry was due. I admit I'm a bit nervous that I didn't exercise in 2 days other than a dog walk. Nervous that I ate out today and ate icecream . There's a part of me that thinks I should feel bad about this day, it wasn't a black and white "on plan " kinda day . But this was a good day in many ways.
And tomorrow is another day.
I'm saving up my Just 1 Things: things I'm proud of , grateful for, etc for Monday's post, but I am noting them every day.
