Does anyone out there watch this program? The season premier is tonight and I am watching, blogging and cuddling (of course, with my girl Bella). Please ignore the sweaty grossness that is me. I just finished a 90 minute game of Ultimate Frisbee and we had no female subs. But, Bella is the cutest isn't she? She loves herself a good cuddle.
Tim Roth is great as Dr. Lightman. If you haven't watched the show it focuses around the Lightman Group who are a group of professionals trained to "read" faces. They can tell when people are lying, scared, happy and sad. While the program is fiction it is loosely based on the science of reading facial micrexpressions and pioneered by Paul Ekman. I find this kind of science fascinating. Imagine, one eyebrow twitch or a grimace of the upper lip and you can tell exactly what a person is thinking.
Speaking of lying there has been a huge flurry of activity in the health and wellness blogsphere today because of this article in Marie Claire by Katie Drummond. I am brand new to this whole blogging thing but I am sure that uninspired and thoughtless articles like this are nothing more than an outlet for an author who, unable to fine any real dirt on these inspiring women so she had to make it up. Sure, I have no doubt that the quotes were accurate but it sounds like they were taken totally out of context. To imply that blogs such as these promote or encourage disordered eating is laughable. I am in awe at how MUCH most of these women eat (and drink!! lol). Katie Drummond is not a journalist and I hope subscriptions and readership of their magazine plummets. I never really like there magazine much to begin with but you can be certain I won't be buying it ever again and I will let all of my girlfriends know about the lack of ethics at this tabloid.
Do you have any thoughts on this kind of issue? Leave a comment and let me know.
Moving on. My eats were boring today and not photo worthy. Oats, quinoa with greek yogurt and kiwi fruit, chicken, broccoli, pork loin, a Larabar (peanut butter of course) and a few scrambled eggs. Not necessarily in that order.
I had a good workout at the gym this morning before work. A full body circuit, as follows:
12 - 15 reps per exercise, I did the circuit twice this morning:
5 minute warm up on the elliptical
Bent Over Rows 20lbs
Shoulder Press 15lbs
Wall Sit with Bicep Curl 10lbs
Triceps Kickback 10lbs
Front/Side Lateral Raises 8lbs (but have a slight rotator cuff injury and had to skip the front raises after a few reps)
Seated Row 45 lbs
Swiss Ball Hamstring Curl
This is a new routine for me and even though it looks pretty basic it was good. Tomorrow is leg day...boo!
