What’s your favorite Tom Hanks movie or character, and why?
I saw Bridesmaids recently and there's a part where Kristen Wiig's character is watching the scene where Wilson's floating away and Tom Hanks is all "WILSOOOOON!! I'M SORRY WILSON!" and she starts bawling...and so was I. XD Even after all this time, watching ten seconds of that is enough to make me still cry...I call that an effective movie.
In other news, it's been two weeks now since Erik and I have sworn off eating fast food and pounding back sodas. We were eating fast food for every single meal probably 90% of the week. Now we've been getting groceries and cooking at home (been making breaded chicken and potatoes, pork chops and green beans...actual food-food, not the frozen processed stuff we're used to), and we really feel great!
It also helps that we've been waking up bright and early every morning. Erik goes for walks, and I've been just hanging around the house getting used to waking up so damn early. XD But I think next week I'm going to walk with him partways, then jump in the pool and do laps and stuff while it's early and no one's there. Should be fun! I haven't been swimming in a looooooong time, and I always used to love it.
I bought some bermuda shorts from Lane Bryant a month and a half ago, size 22's (I had to go up a size), and they're already slipping down my butt when I wear them. So that makes me super excited! I think it's really cutting out the soda that's doing it, more than anything. 240 calories a can, and I'd drink 5 or 6 a day easily, so...yikes. I've been taking in about 1000 calories a day less than I usually do!
