Excuse me…let me just go pick my jaw up off the floor. Holy moly people…have you seen Hugh Jackman lately? Excellent action flick by the way…totally worth the price of admission if you are in the mood for some crazy fighting, big explosions, and angry men.

Working backwards from the movie….

I didn’t buy any treats at the theatre!! Wooooo. My friend had a pack of Twizzlers, but I only had three and for me that is awesome. Usually I would eat the whole bag and hope no one wanted to share. I’m soooo off candy right now…hopefully I can keep that going, but I do have a flight across Canada on Saturday so that is a bit of a danger zone.


The key to not wanting a treat was the late dinner I had before the late show. I met a girlfriend at Jack Astor’s where we were planning to share a few appies. She’d ended up having dinner with her hubby and wasn’t too hungry so instead we decided to share the appy chicken quesadilla and I just got a small house salad to go with my half. Perfect little meal and since I’d thought I was going to have a more calorie laden feast I opted to have real Ranch dressing on my salad instead of the boring vinagrette. My fave.


Instead of boozy drinks I started with a pineapple juice with soda, but when my friend ordered her second bevvie I wanted something more fun so I ordered a Astor Blastor….haha…I think that might for kids…but it was really good!!! Bright pink and fruity, with coconut milk. šŸ™‚



Before heading out for the eats I made sure to hit the gym to work out some of the stiffness that had started to set in from yoga yesterday. I guess I spoke to soon in this morning’s post because my lower back was starting to ache a bit.

Treadmill: 2 minute warmup, 18 minute run, 5 minute cooldown = 230 cals, 1.7 miles, 25 minutes

Quick lower body workout: I was super pressed for time.

– 2 sets x 15 reps: ball squats with 15 lb bar, stationary lunges holding 2 x 8 lb weights (each leg), hamstring curls on the ball

Before the gym, I raided our cereal cupboard for a half serving of DSCN0173Organic Daybreak with light vanilla soy milk topped with a few Cinnamon Puffins. Our cereal cupboard is really full and I’m dying to break into one of these new boxes but promised myself I’d eat up the open stuff first.




And last but not least, lunch. I had to eat while sitting through the weekly conference call. I opted for leftover homemade cauliflower & cheese soup, with a side plate of Kashi honey sesame crackers & White Chocolate Wonderful PB.

So now, due to the late movie I’m up way past my bedtime yet again. I will be aiming to get my arse out of bed when the alarm goes off. Wish me luck!!
