I added to my movie list last night. We saw Tarnished Angels at the Grand Illusion. The airplane racing scenes were great, much more exciting that the dogfight sequences in Wings. I didn't have any luck getting anyone else to go with us, unfortunately. I spent the first half of the movie eating my fabulous Thai Tom spicy noodles, which took so long for the restaurant to cook that I was left with no other option but to get it to go and just eat in the theater. It was kind of fun, though, eating with chopsticks in the dark, never knowing what exactly I was about to put in my mouth.
I'm feeling like it's time to reduce my calorie intake, given that I'm currently resting at 160 and after one week of walking I haven't lost an ounce. I'm convinced it's due to my bad snacking habits, which for some reason got out of control recently. For that reason, I've declared this week to be No Snacks week. Snacks are: candy, chips (including Pirate Booty, boo hoo!), cookies, ice cream, and cake (I'd say soda but since I rarely drink it it doesn't matter). Fruit is not a snack. I heard someone say recently that just reducing your caloric intake by 100 calories a day would lead to weight loss, so I think this will help. I also read this article in (please don't slap me!) Vogue comparing the three most popular diet plans (Atkins, Ornish, and Weight Watchers), and it seemed that only the Weight Watchers reviewer was happy. I agreed with the Ornish person who said she always felt hungry on that diet, in spite of the fact it says you can eat all you want if it's on the list. Since the food all tasted bad, what good did it do to be allowed unlimited servings? I'm really not ready for Weight Watchers, though, at least not for paying money to join.
There's an interesting article in Tablet about EveryWoman's Delegation to Cuba. I still really want to go to Cuba - I wonder if I could do it on a newspaper visa?
