We’re (Almost) Up In The Air!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on December 28, 2009

Last night we ended up seeing Up In The Air.



This movie was superb!!

It far exceeded our expectations. Up In The Air was rated awesome too- 8.3/10 on IMDB and 89% on Rotten Tomatoes. Personally I would rate it 9/10 and I am a very tough movie critic!

Clooney was as handsome and charming as ever. I have a HUGE crush, not going to lie. I think this was my favourite movie that he has been in! I’m not going to say much about the movie itself because I don’t want to spoil it, but you really should go see this movie! It is so thought provoking with an inspiring message at the end. :)


This morning I had another kick bootay workout at Nubody’s!

  • 20 mins stepper (level 15)
  • 15 mins elliptical (incline 10, resistance 10)
  • 5 mins rower (awesome workout for the arms!)
  • 15 mins treadmill (10 mins @ incline 15%, speed 4-4.2, then 5 min cool down)
  • Core work (crunches on stability ball)

Whittle My Middle

I have been keeping up with my core work each day, doing about 2 minutes of planks and other core work.

I decided that I am going to do Whittle My Middle AGAIN for the month of January! I was so pleased with the results, I want to do another complete month of it.

Anyone want to join in on Whittle My Middle II? It will begin JAN 1st so bring your A game!!!!! :D


I came home, showered up, and got ready for the day.

I tried these Alba samples. I can’t comment on the shampoo because I only used it once and didn’t really get a sense for it. It seemed ok though. I also forgot to use the body lotion this trip.

However, I LOVED the Alba shaving cream (shown right)!!!


This shave cream was thick and luxurious like a buttery conditioner. It wasn’t foamy at all and I loved that. It left my legs very smooth and it was quite moisturizing.

Blow drying my mop is my least favourite thing in the world. I always tell Eric how lucky he is that he doesn’t have to blow dry long hair. Men have it easy!


Fueled up for the flight home today!


For lunch, I had a delicious whole wheat pita with veggie turkey, tomatoes, guacamole, hummus, pepper, and romaine lettuce. Delish! I haven’t had the veggie turkey in ages and I can’t say I really missed it too much. It just tastes very processed to me now.


I also had a huge salad drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette:


And a yellow delicious apple…


Tea verte:


Now I have a huge food baby! ;)

My dad, Eric, and Colleen enjoyed his homemade Caesar salad:


Eric and I are pumped because we get to watch the Canada Junior hockey game while on the airplane today! :) Yay for airplane TV! We arrive in Hamilton around 6pm, pending the flight is on time. Can’t wait to sleep in my own bed tonight.


Time to finish packing…hopefully I am not over the weight limit on the way back!

Did you miss any holiday posts while you were away?

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Angela-

I love your website! It has totally inspired me!!! I am now drinking Green Monsters everyday and have a random question for you. Have you researched spinach and the effect of oxalates? I was trying to figure out if it is better to put cooked or raw spinach in my Green Mosnters and in doing my research I read about how spinach contains lots of oxalates. Most of the press made it sound like eating spinach everyday was could be potentially bad. Just wanted to know if have any information? I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Green Monsters and dont want to give them up!

Hi Erin,

I have read a bit on it too from Worlds Healthiest Foods website. It says:

“Spinach is among a small number of foods that contain measurable amounts of oxalates, naturally-occurring substances found in plants, animals, and human beings. When oxalates become too concentrated in body fluids, they can crystallize and cause health problems. For this reason, individuals with already existing and untreated kidney or gallbladder problems may want to avoid eating spinach.”

Because I dont have kidney or gullbladder problems I guess I dont see it as a big issue. I also always alternate spinach and kale too so I dont rely just on spinach. :)

Take care!
