“You got kicked. By a kick.”

This was today’s “stupid quote” from my desk calendar – it had me giggling the entire day.

I’ve been trying to get to the posting stage here all week long. Every single night, the second I turn my computer off, I think of it. DOH! I’ve been so good this week, eating well, exercising and getting sleep. YAY ME! Today was a bust – out tonight with a galfriend – movie and dinner. There was no gym after work and dinner .. well, yes. A bust. But that’s ok because I was 4 for 4 up until .. I figure if I can get 5 good food and exercise days in per week, I’m winning. Tomorrow will be fine, so I’m feeling very pleased with myself!

We saw ‘The King’s Speech’ tonight – watch out, I’m about to get all gushy – LOVED LOVED LOVED IT!! Amazing story, beautifully written, so much heart! amazing actors, funny, captivating .. such an amazing movie. AMAZING!

Eric Dane was as delicious as ever, Kristin Bell unusually dramatic and Stanley Tucci, amazing. The movie was all razzle dazzle with a decent storyline .. the dancing was mesmerising! It certainly wasn’t my choice of movie, but fun nonetheless.

It was a great night out with my family!
