Day 19: Candy canes.

Listen guys, I’m not gonna lie. I was too preoccupied today to look at today’s challenge bequest, so I don’t have any pictures of candy canes – which is cool cause I don’t have candy canes in my life anyway, so.

However, I do have some magnificent Christmas photos of myself, Alyza, and our friend Neil. Here’s everyone’s favorite:

You’re welcome.

Day 17: Presents!

I totally took a picture for today.

Here’s part of my present pile for people.

In other news, I really like this song, Birthday Cake, and I always get super excited when it comes on while I’m working out. The original is actually really short cause Rihanna didn’t finish it. This is the prolonged remix featuring Chris Brown. Yisss.

Self Achievements

Day 16: Outside Christmas lights.

We do not have outside Christmas lights at my house, and I most certainly do not have any pictures of any outside lights (yet anyway) because as I’ve mentioned before, I don’t check the list for this challenge before it’s time to do the night’s post. Thankfully, I have finally taken a picture of the challenge, with half of it left to go, so that in the coming days, I’ll make sure to adhere to it as best as I can.

So anyway, I don’t have any pictures of lights, but I do have a picture of myself from earlier today while I was getting ready for the gym.

I was beyond excited and super happy this morning when I got on the scale for my weigh in. If you’ve been following this blog, you might know by now that I’ve been working hard to change my lifestyle and lose weight with the help of WeightWatchers. This past week I decided that I have a short term goal: to get under 200 lbs by the end of this year. As of today, I have 3.9 lbs until I’m at least 199.9 lbs. I think that’s doable in the next two weeks if I work really hard and eat clean and stay committed.

I am extremely proud of myself for the dedication and perseverance I put in to get to the point that I am at now. I know I need to improve in many ways, but that’s what time is for.

For now, here’s a picture I would never have taken a year ago.

Nobody gets you there but yourself. Every little achievement is a battle won in the long run.

SPOILER ALERT! The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Day 14: Christmas tree

Alright, I’ve already shown my Christmas tree about a month ago when I put it up, so there’s no sense in showing it again when there’s more important things at hand to discuss, such as THE MOTHERFUCKING HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED BOSSASS JOURNEY.

I just came home from seeing it with my mom and my brother in HFR RealD 3D and it was a-mazing.

First let me say that I have officially been spoiled and I hereforth refuse to ever watch another movie in theaters unless it is in HFR. If you’re wondering what HFR is, let me break it down for you: HFR stands for High Frame Rate, which means that the movie is delivered at 48 fps (frames per second) as opposed to the standard 24 fps. This means that you see the movie in such a way that very closely resembles how you perceive the world with your eyes.

Or in simpler forms: IT WAS LIKE I WAS FUCKING IN THE MOVIE AND EVERYTHING WAS SUPER MOTHERFUCKING CLEAR AND EVERYONE WAS MOVING AT WHAT SEEMED FASTER RATES/PACES BUT REALLY THEY WERE MOVING LIKE HOW YOU SEE PEOPLE AND THINGS MOVE IN REAL LIFE AND IT WAS SO LEGIT AND I THINK ALL MOVIES SHOULD BE MADE AT HFR FROM NOW ON BECAUSE HOLY SHIT THERE IS LITERALLY NO BETTER WAY TO WATCH ANYTHING.

I LITERALLY CAN’T CONTAIN HOW EXCITED AND IN AWE I AM BY HFR TECHNOLOGY. You can also click here to learn more about HFR. And I sincerely urge any and all of you who are planning to go see The Hobbit to look into whether any of your local theatres offer the HFR 3D option and if they do, GO SEE IT IN THIS VERSION. It was actually originally shot in HFR 3D therefore you should indulge your eyes and go and appreciate the magnificence of it.

And now, for the movie itself: IT WAS BLOODY WICKED. 

I mean, first of all, Thorin, the Dwarf prince is fucking HOT AS HELL. I was sitting there gazing into his beautiful blue eyes, mesmerized by that glorious dark hair and kingly stature the entire time he was on the screen. He is seriously good looking. And I thought Gimli was good looking in LOTR – no. Gimli is but a mere carbon chunk next to the diamond quality of Thorin. I’m sure this has a lot to do with the fact that the actor, Richard Armtimage, is bloody gorgeous to begin with. He’s officially on my PIWF list.

Also, the evil Orc guy that wants to kill Thorin – I believe his character’s name is Azog, though Google images is doing absolutely nothing to confirm this for me and neither is IMDB and I’m actually quite disappointed. I’m even more disappointed in the number of still frames of him – which are a grand total of ZERO. Makes no sense since he was an underlining central point in the storyline. But anyway – for some reason I tend to be attracted to the evil guys in movies. He reminds me of Voldemort actually. Same snakelike look, but super beefed up. I’d tap that.

Speaking of storyline, like I said, the movie itself was wiiiiicked. I was expecting it to be good, and it delivered. It’s definitely got that LOTR vibe, especially if you pay attention to the music. All in all, I feel like I might need to see it again while it’s still in theatres, if the opportunity arises.
