Loving: Don’t you dare hate or judge: I love the new Miley Cyrus album. When her first single was released and I saw the music video, not going to lie, I was a little disgusted. The tune had me hooked but her image, I couldn’t get use to it. For years, the kiddos looked up to her and idolized her in every way. Then when I saw this and knew that they were still hooked (I saw the twelve year old’s Instagram account quoting the lyrics), I got a little angry. Now, I’m over it. She is a smart business woman. I don’t believe that she’s going to have a breakdown like previously successful female artists. Her choices are her own and have brought her much fame. I’ll just keep hitting repeat as I ignore her personal behavior.
Looking forward to: Monday night date nights with the beau! Last night was the first night of the classic movie series at The Palace Theatre and we saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This was my first time seeing it, ever. So many questions running through my head! I wasn’t expecting all of the costumes nor the participation that came from the audience throughout the ENTIRE show. I.e. throwing of rice, confetti, decks of cards, toilet paper, toast, and wearing newspaper over one’s head while being soaked by squirt guns. Blew my mind! Can’t forget the dancing of the time warp! I WILL be prepared for next year! Next week is Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds; I’ve never seen this film as well.
Planning: With having reached official 46er status and not having anything else on my plate, I am realizing that I am a VERY goal-oriented person. As my mom always points out, there’s always something. But if I don’t have a short term goal to work toward, I am not the same person. I am lazy, unmotivated to keep my personal space clean and organized, and grouchy. With that being said, I’ve already chosen my next goal and I’m going to share it to hold myself accountable. If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I’m already registered for the Troy Turkey Trot; one of my favorite annual traditions. What you may not know, is that I’m registered for the 10k, my first 10k ever. My goal: finish under 56 minutes. I am not a fast runner, at all. But I am determined to finish with an average under 9 minute miles. If you had asked me a year ago what my goal would have been for the distance, I would have said 62 minutes. Which is an excellent time. I’m just ready to really start pushing myself physically in ways I never have before. My workout calendar is made and this morning’s run is done.
Watching: We are caught up with Sons of Anarchy and watch it the day after it airs on television. The only other show that I’ve been watching, slowly, is Mad Men. We are only on season five and can’t imagine where is goes in the future episodes.
Excited about: This weekend celebrating Halloween! I have been too busy to really plan my costume this year but have a general idea of what I’d like to pull off. Spoiler alert: it’s not going to be a slutty anything. I’ve got a costume idea for the beau and I during TNO this Friday, but we’ll have to see how much energy I have Thursday night. It’ll be a good time regardless; we’re going to have glow in the dark ink for printing, spooky music playing in the background and candy for trick-or-treaters. I’m also going to be watching Vito this weekend, and we may visit the pumpkin patch for some fun on the farm!
Wondering: Where did The Brown Bag go?
Eating: The first half of the month was great in regards to the beau and I not eating out. This past week has been, well, bad. Our fridge is packed with autumn veggies but the kitchen is a mess and I have no motivation to cook. Tonight is the big night: I will conquer those dishes! With my new running goal, I’ll be even more motivated to eat clean. That big bag of spinach is calling my name!
