Monday was a Rest Day for me–I needed it. My left calf felt tight and it’s been bothering me for about a week now. My hope is that rest and maybe some yoga will improve that.
When I got home from work I dyed my hair and then Michael and I went out to dinner before seeing a movie. We went to Panera. It was conveniently near the theatre and they have tons of low calorie options.
There are so many things I can order at Panera. And they post the calorie count on the menu board. I ordered the soup/half sandwich combo. I got the French Onion soup:
The French Onion soup is decent. It’s nothing compared to the best French Onion Soup I’ve ever had. Dinner was about 650 calories. I like that number!
We sat outside in the bistro area and tried to enjoy the very little sunshine we had. Poor Michael–wearing a huge sweatshirt in the middle of July! Ridiculous weather.
After dinner we went to see “Super 8.” I won’t give anything away. But I will say a few things: I enjoyed the movie a lot, even though the ending kind of fell short of the build-up.
Michael said the movie is kind of a cross between ET and Stand By Me (both excellent movies from my childhood). But I felt like it was more a cross between The Goonies and Stand By Me. The Goonies is a great movie! And it was filmed in Astoria, Oregon.
The movie is worth a theatre viewing. I think the effects would be lost seeing it at home. There were two previews for upcoming summer movies I’m looking forward to as well. The first is Captain America. I am slowly starting to really enjoy the comic book movies. The second movie is Cowboys and Aliens–could be totally awesome or a total cheese-fest of awfulness.
QUESTION: What did you think of Super 8 (no spoilers)? What summer movie are you looking forward to seeing?
