Well folks another Monday is upon us. This is the first Monday in a very long time (minus a long weekend) where I feel refreshed and well-rested. I know right HOW did that happen? Well my body is so used to going to bed at around 9 or 10 on the weekdays, it is impossible to stay up late on weekends. That is the unfortunate secret. I am pretty cool like that.
After making my weekly batch of wings for the boys on Sunday, my mom and I decided to go to a matinee and see Don Jon. You know the movie that Joseph Gordon Levitt wrote, directed and starred in with Scarlett Johansson? A little forewarning, maybe don’t go see this with your mom as the majority of the movie is either him masturbating to online porn or him having sex. My mom and I are kind of weird in that this was not awkward for us, but I could see it being a bit of a problem if we weren’t as close as we are.
In all, I LOVED Joseph Gordon Levitt and Scarlett Johansson in this movie. Their ‘Jersey Shore’ acting was spot on, the walk, the talk, the accent, everything was so well done. You know the accent…
Without giving any spoilers, I was surprised how much the movie dealt with addiction. It was interesting too to see the Jon character transform and grow as he realizes that his addiction to porn stems from how unfulfilled his is emotionally in his relationships. Pretty deep for a Monday morning eh?
Since I took last Wednesday and Thursday off as rest days last week I was active all weekend.
Friday – My favourite Yoga video.
Saturday – 4 mile run
Sunday – 3 km walk with dogs, 10 km run, ab circuit
I have been documenting my workouts in my phone calendar which syncs with my email so I can track exactly what I did for each week in workouts. It has really helped me realize how much I am actually doing for fitness and mentally giving myself the okay to take one or two rest days as needed.
So how was your weekend?
Did you see Don Jon? What did you think of it?
Hope you have a great Monday!
