so i've fallen off the fitness wagon. my sister warned me that boyfriends will do this to you. but i didn't pay attention. i was happy and in love. two years later, i'm still happy, still in love, but let's just say that i should have heeded my sister's warning.
little by little, i've been making changes. joseph, in an effort to support me, has also decided to try to be more conscientious about food choices.
today we planned to go to the movies. joseph is a sucker for movie popcorn. he LOVES it, can't see a movie without it. it's possibly more important to him than the movie itself.
in our effort to be healthy, we looked up the number of calories in a large bag of movie popcorn, which is what we typically share. we were shocked to find out that it has nearly 1300 calories. WITHOUT BUTTER. a small bag of movie popcorn, on the other hand, has about 550 calories.
no problem, he (we) thought. we'll just eat less.
when we walked into the movie theater we were accosted by the smell of popcorn. i knew there would be trouble.
in the concession stand line, joseph decided on a small bag of popcorn and a bottle of water. but when the concession guy asked for our order, joseph said, "a smm-edium popcorn."
a smm-edium popcorn?!
poor guy, he couldn't resist. i laughed and told him that i was going to blog about this later.
yum-o! (hi, joseph!).
