at the Movie

Sunday, August 14, 2011

Saturday we went to Dothan to see a movie after doing some shopping.
(found the crochet thread I needed)
We ate at McDonalds I had a grilled wrap, side salad with ginger dressing (only part of the pkg) and a yogurt parfait.

My husband talked us into going to see Cowboys and Aliens with him.
After getting the tickets and opening the door I thought the odor of buttered popcorn would knock me over. YUCK!!!!
Wait a minute where did that come from, I use to love movie popcorn.
Now I have no desire what so ever to even stop at the concession stand, walked right past it without even looking. Yeah!!!!
I was amazed though to see all those huge buckets of popcorn, huge drinks, and other junk that people were bringing to their seats. Wow one person alone had more calories than I eat in a day.
Yes I use to be that person, Thank God I can say no more.

Oh later I did get a small pineapple mango smoothie, but knew I had enough calories to allow for it.

    I did the same thing at the last movie-no popcorn for me! Got a snack they had there that was almonds, raisins and pretzels. Even split that with Bob! When I heard how much fat and calories are in those popcorns, never again! Hope you enjoyed the movie- you didn't mention if you liked it? emoticon

    Good for you! I'm still having trouble at the concession stand when I go to the movies. I at least have cut down to a small popcorn with no butter.

    It was weird seeing Cowboys and Aliens, it seems like the two of them shouldn't mix. We did enjoy the movie though!
