Get your “Life Day” decorations out for this edition where Jatin and Miss Shannan are joined by guest Geek, Christopher Grap from the Mall of America. Miss Shannan gives her spoiler free review of “Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse.” And we’ll talk about the glorious disaster which is the “Star Wars Holiday Special’ and how Christopher has turned it into one of the most successful “Toys For Tots” drives in the country.
March is “Birthday Month” at our house. Cyclone Kid turned 9 at the beginning of the month. I’ll hit 44 at the tail end of March. A month of celebrations and a month of “annual check-ups,” as well.
Physicals for both of us, and I learned few things. We’re both happy. We’re both healthy. But, we’re both a little “heavy.”
Even though Cyclone Kid and I are active people, we weren’t active enough to stave off the winter weight gain. As the mom, I let us slip and now we’ve got some ground to make up to get our Body Mass Index in check and get back into shape.
Goals are great. Realistic goals are better. Over the next 6 months I have two weight-related goals for us:
For Cyclone Kid: Keep him at his current weight, so he can “Grow Into It.”
For Me: Lose 8 pounds and gain muscle.
I’m not telling him he’s on “diet,” or that he needs to lose weight. I’m not making a big deal about using the word “exercise.” For the next six months, I’ll find new, fun ways that we can be more active and get in better shape.
Remember, I said, HE’S HAPPY. My main concern is to keep him that way. Happy. Healthy. Confident. Just a little less “heavy.”
It will be an interesting adventure.
It’s time to talk movies, music and family with Rudy Pavich. We’ll laugh about Zombies, talk about movies that make us cry, and discover why Mezcal is a drink only a demon would like.
