Beware The Ides of March
WATCHMEN on Tuesday. Dude, it seriously was one of the best movies I've seen in the theater. I'm very thankful that my bro happened to have a copy for me to read before seeing the story translated to the big screen. Now I have my next desired Halloween costume. Not really keen on the high heels/skin tight leather thing, but it wouldn't be the first time. I was Trinity from The Matrix 3 times! I was also Wonderwoman. Gotta keep being badass chicks right? Right.
But yeah, this flick ROCKED. It very well may be the first movie that I repeat in the theater! Worth it. So worth it.
What else did the week provide? Hmmmm. Art museum workout that left me sore for days. It was epic though. Dinner at Kari and Adam's. Thanks you two! Ooooh! I got my pistol back on both sides on Thursday! I also got new kicks on Thurs too. I get excited about new shoes. After running the steps like Rocky on Tues in Chucks I figured I could spring for some more cush. I knew I was really excited about my Pumas because I voluntarily ran yesterday! I don't really run. Unless, like Brian says, I'm being chased. It wasn't too bad either. That happens every once in a blue moon. My knees weren't the happiest, still hurtin from Tues. But as you know, I am a machine. Ha!
Friday I cruised into the city to cheer on the boys from the Dragon Gym who fought in The Golden Gloves. That rocked. Made me want to box in the ring. Million Dollar Baby anyone? Sure! Well actually, I like training, but don't think I would like hitting some poor chicky in the face. Or vice versa, although I am a badass and would like to think that I wouldn't let anyone do that, but I am realistic. I'll keep to hitting stuff, not people's grills.
KB classes this week went marvelously. My Moms is doin' it up right! And the red haired duo is continuously surpassing their efforts of previous sessions. I may inspire Taylor, but she inspires me too! Not to mention her momma!
Gave a ton of massages this week and still not done. Today I gave 5 at the spa and then headed right on into a VO2 session of 40 sets. That's plenty for these forearms. Veins? Yep. Did a little grub shoppin' at Trader Joe's. I love that place. Came home and had one of my better feasts yet. My meal had every color of the rainbow! Trippy man. Started with a butter lettuce salad with cranberry walnut gorgonzola dressing. Next was black bean soup with a smidgen of the best organic monterey jack cheese I've ever had the pleasure of tasting. Then some lemon thyme chicken sausages (Whole Foods) with broccoli, butternut squash, red pepper, yellow pepper, red onion and the usual extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Oh, amidst the preparing were a few baby carrots dipped in garlic hummus from TJs. Dessert was plain yogurt with chunky apple sauce first. Then I indulged. I bought some organic milk and dark with almond chocolate. Little bit of sweet with a little spice of ginger tea while I watched the first disc of season 1 of Lost was quite fabulous. Just like Heroes, I had to start from the very beginning. Matthew Fox is hot. So is the other dude. Don't know his name. Maybe he'll be in my dream tonight like Sendhil from Heroes was last week...
As for tomorrow. I am going to Bikram for the first time in like 2 weeks I think. Yippee! Giving some bodywork and after that? Maybe a movie. Sounds good. See you there. I do not forsee any negative thing happening in regards to the Ides. Things are good. For some reason I always think of the Ides of March from 9th grade English class. Weird. Yes.
I leave you with a few more quotes I like:
"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment"
"Concentration is the secret of strength" both by Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Be a warrior and arise. Great warrior arise" Bhagavad Gita
"To keep the body healthy is a duty...otherwise we cannot keep our mind strong and clear" Buddha
Rock on everyone. It's slumber time.
