Beauty And The Beast Thoughts & More

Hey Everyone!

I am glad to see you all back again. This weekend was fairly eventful. As you know Friday I went to watch ‘Beauty and the Beast’ with my wife. Turns out the showing that we went to was in 3-D:

I am not a fan of 3-D movies, but we were already there haha. The next showing wasn’t for three hours, and by then it would be a full house. We got in just fine and found our seats. Towards the middle but on the end, so my wife had easy access to the aisle. As far as the movie goes I was generally pleased. I figured I would be. Most of the story line was followed, which is good for a movie based on a classic. The acting was good, in my opinion. Josh Glad plays a good LeFou, even though they had to get political and push a sexual orientation agenda. Again in my opinion, if you are going to remake a classic follow the script. There is no need to add a bunch of things and change people, it became a classic for a reason. As for the special effects, outstanding! You would have to know that the majority of the movie is computer generated, you know like the whole castle, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, and the rest. It must have taken such a long time to get that all correct and they did a great job. I would absolutely that everyone go see it before it is out of theaters. If you like the Disney classics, you really won’t want to miss this live action movie!

Switching gears, my Saturday started out by taking more boxes over to my parent’s house. We have had so many items delivered to our house in such a short time that we had a million cardboard boxes. I went to burn the ones I still had, as shown here:

The amount that I had was next to nothing compared to what my ddad still had in his garage from all of my other stuff! Check all that out:

It was packed in every little spot. With my fresh batch of cardboard being gone quickly I decided to do it all. I was there for about two hours burning it all. We made sure to separate and throw away most of the plastic and Styrofoam. After that I went home and got ready for the game night we were going to host! We decided that we would set up a homemade sub bar, and let everyone make their own, even toast it up in the oven. My brother and soon to be sister in-law brought cupcakes from their wedding cake testing, and buffalo chicken dip. My wife and I had all the sub stuff and chocolate cookies, and my mom and dad brought drinks and Doritos. We played that Telestrations game we just bought and had a blast. Here is a quick picture that I took. There you can see my dad, mom, dog, brother, and my wife. The niece and soon to be sister in-law were in the other room.

Sunday I picked up my brother to go to my company gym. I have been on a diet for a little over a week and have lost 12lbs by eating right, with minimal exercise. Contrary to what you thought I ate Saturday. I only had my sub and some wine. 😀 Anyway, I met up with him at 10am and hit the gym. I was able to run 2 miles and walk another. My legs today are still feelin the burn.

If you are curious as to what my diet plan is I can gladly let you know! Contact me any way you would like. I have just been eating too unhealthy and gaining too much unwanted weight, so I’m doing something about it. All while still hating exercise haha. The rest of the day was spent with my wife, who didn’t feel very good. We watched about seven episodes of Shameless.

I hope you all had a great weekend like I did! I hope you have had a good time here today. I look forward to seeing you all again tomorrow. C-ya! 😀 😀

  1. You are right about there is no need to start adding things to classic stories!

    I love that your family seems so close knit.

    The Mister and I (and one coworker who found out about it) are going to start a “Fast Metabolism Diet” on Monday. It’s by Haylie Pomroy, a fairly famous nutritionist. We shall see. You have do the plan for 28 days before any deviations, but after that if you have a special occassion like say a birthday and want to have a celebratory meal you are allowed to have it-cake and all. Then the next day you just keep eating right. She also has specified types of exercise on various day of the meal cycle. According to her you can loose up to 20 pounds in the first 28 days. We shall see.

    1. The hardest part about all diets is sticking to the plan, at least for me. I have been doing good, so far, with controlling my self restraint haha. I think it can be easier to do it with a group of people, like you all are, to keep everyone in check. I hope everyone see the results they would like to!

      1. Thanks. We are all excited about this. The only part that I think will be hard for me is having to give up my Diet Coke! My coworker said the hardest part for her is that she has to give up coffee!
