Watching A Movie With the Mater & Pater... 8|

Okay, so I'm watching "Interview With the Vampire" starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt when the first "risque" scene comes up...aaaand my mom and dad are sitting RIGHT THERE. :| Yeah...can we say "AWKWARD MOMENT?!" at the top of our lungs?! Well, they both kept their eyes front and center and I found that it was time to take the dirty cups back to the kitchen...ahem.
Yeah. Anyone else had an episode like that? Ugh.
Now, I really like this movie, but it kinda made me think, even though I enjoy watching movies and stuff, is it really all that worth it? Or could my time be spent on more worth while things? Things that are more, idk, productive...?
So, I've decided to spend less time watching TV and more time reading and studying...and eating. :)
My idea over the next month or so is to get into a good schedule: i.e. exercising, reading, studying, learning, helping others, and trying to find a job.
To start with, I've begun doing Tony Horton's Power90, and, I have to say, I'm lovin' it! :D You need to realize that it is a BIG step for this girl to say that. I hate sweating, but I love exercising...yeah, I know, I know, "YOU'RE WEIRD!" is what you're screaming at the computer. And yes, I am. Thanks for pointing it out, again. :P
Yes, I hate sweating. I don't like feeling sticky and slimy. It goes against the grain. I like feeling clean and neat...well, for about half an hour, I don't feel clean anymore, but I DO feel good!
I realized how out of shape I was getting, but I didn't have the motivation to get off the couch, let alone press play...well, God knew what I needed! About a week ago I was on Facebook and happened to see something one of my friends (let's call him "L") posted on his pastor's blog. Apparently, our pastor friend had started working out to get healthier, and L was encouraging him to stick with it. L mentioned how he and his roommate at college were doing BeachBody's "Insanity" workout together every day, and he's already lost 16lbs!
Well, when I read that, I realized that this guy that I knew was going to come back from college fairly hunky, and I didn't want to look like a lumpy white potato standing next to him! Hence, I have now started on my goal of getting through BeachBody's P90. I took it rather easy the first couple of days, but now I'm all in!
Wish me luck as I rebuild my body, gain confidence, and start living a healthier lifestyle!
