9:30am : After a little bit of TV it was on to the gym. We had shoulders and legs today which we knocked out pretty quickly. My shoulders have been a bit sore the last couple of days for some reason so I took it easy on them today. It was nice getting to the gym early on a Saturday morning cause it wasn't busy and we still had the whole day ahead of us. We finished up the gym session with 15 minutes of cardio on the bike. Here's what's confusing though: Mandi and I did the exact same length of time and I averaged more RPM than her, yet she finished almost a full mile ahead of me in distance. She did have it on another resistance level, but we found it strange that that would affect distance. Anybody know the answer to that riddle? I sure don't but would love some insight.
Total Distance: 4.2 miles
Movie Review: I'm actually embarrassed to say this, but I went and saw that new movie Bruno today (the second sour note). Mandi and I went on a whim after the gym to the movie theater. Usually I will look up movies on kidsinmind.com (a service that rates movies on language, sex, and violence) before seeing any movie. Since this was a last minute thing, there was no consulting with that site before picking a movie. We had both seen Sasha Cohen's first movie Borat and thought it was funny, and although crude in parts, I didn't think that it was over the top. Bruno IS over the top. We both felt like walking out several times, but I think we thought that it would become tamer. It never did. How this movie isn't rated higher than R I'll never know. It is SO CRUDE that it is literally disgusting in parts and I turned my head away from the screen several times. Sad thing is, the movie was at it's best when it wasn't trying for just pure shock value. When he wasn't forcing it and seeing just how far he could take things, it was much funnier. He ruined the movie by doing things that he knew would push the envelope and frankly, are pretty detestable for film. I could never nor will ever recommend this movie. I felt dirty and ashamed after walking out of the theater and I can never just "go to a movie on a whim" again. BIG MISTAKE.
Total Distance for Day: 4.2 miles
