In Progress | 35 of 101 | Knock My Movie List Down to 300 Titles & Review 700 Movies | Flicks w/ Chips + Dips

As of March 2022 my Watch List on IMDB has a total of 471 movies and the total movies rated on IMDB is 492.

This is the first task in my 101 Things To Do In A 1001 Days which I have over two years left to complete to get my list down to 300 titles.  I will do this one.  My goal is a movie every 2-3 days.  My list grows as I add titles and sometimes I take a couple away if I’ve gone completely cold on a title and would never click to watch it online.

Just wanted to have a spot where I could list some of the movies that I want to see. I like to ask people for some recommendations and I stick them in Evernote to keep track of. I will have to set it up better and bring some to the top and focus on those first.

Here is a list that will grow of some of the movies that I want to watch.

In Progress | #8 of 101 | Read Left To Right + Flip Pages | 101 Things To Do In 1001 Days

One thing that I’ve wanted to do is read books.  Over the years… I’ve purchased a couple of Basketball books that I’ve wanted to read when I have time.  One thing that I’ve never really done is read.  I should.  Why don’t I start now.

 

 

 

Start Date:  March 1st, 2022

I’ve wanted to read this book for quite some time and I’m going to throw it in the mix right away. I’m sure it will be a quick read and I’ll add my thoughts right here after I read it. If you want to borrow it from me… let me know. I have a PDFx version I can forward to you and you can read it on a iPad using iBooks.

Books That Are Next On Deck:

Delayed | #73 of 101 List | Give Blood Twice Per Month For 8 Months

tumblr_mxokkzNc0X1s47x06o1_540

I won’t lie.  This scares me.  I hate needles.  Hate.  I remember when I was in Grade Two and I was in the hospital to take out my tonsils and it took 3 nurses and 1 doctor to hold me down to give me a needle in my leg before surgery.  I’m a big suck.  So I thought about giving blood two times per week for 8 months straight.

So I added it to my 3rd list of 101 Things To Do In 1001 Days!

Update:  Just waiting for the Covid Virus to be finished with.  Will reach out and see if I can donate blood during this crisis. I’ve signed up and registered on the Canadian Blood Services website.

#66 of 101 | i suck + i will get better | i can’t quit

( Goal is 220 pounds on my 101 Things To Do in 1001 days. )

this is one of those rambling posts that happen late at night with no punctuation or capitals.

1-tumblr_my80zb7p9k1t98grzo1_500

enough is enough.  i’ve only played ball once last year.  very disappointed in myself.  many days i think about doing something to get into better shape.  many days i do nothing.

that is changing.  being active is now the rule for my health and well being.  not happy with where the last 12 months has taken me.

this has to stop.  i’m not happy with myself.  i’m not happy with how i look and feel.  i don’t want to be fat anymore.    i tried before and fell off the bandwagon.

i want to be strong.

i want to be healthy.

i want to eat more clean foods.  no more fucking pizza late at night when i’m alone.

1-tumblr_m8s76r3Fhp1qz78gto1_500

i want to be a good role model for my kids.

i want to be alive to see them grow up.

i want to be confident in the clothes i wear.

i want more upper body strength.

i want to loose weight around my mid section.

tennis, walking to work, biking to work, swimming, hoops, running, yoga and watching what i put into my pie hole will be the key.

1-tumblr_mwoc3wzHbI1r1vfbso1_500

the last woman i was with was stunning.  absolutely fucking beautiful and i was so lucky to spend time with her.  i need to be healthy and fit for me but sometimes we all want to feel confident in our skin and want to look good for the others we spend intimate moments with.  when i was with her nothing in the world mattered.  we had the craziest weekends together.  the craziest sex.   i want to be better and going in the right direction for whoever is in my life.  i want to do i for them… and i want to do it for me.

time to get serious and be on the record and accountable to me.  i wish i really pushed myself one year ago at this time.  can’t go back.  only can work on the “today” and nothing else.  forward progress will happen if you focus on the “today”

i need to improve my conditioning.

i need to improve my footwork.

i need to improve my handles.

i need to push myself.

i will be 51 years old in April of 2022 and i’m not going to look like i’m in high school weighing a buck sixty with size 34 jeans.  i’m not going to be a great basketball player either… but i want to be able to run and defend and jump and attack.

tumblr_n6tsgz4hPP1qg9kfqo1_500

i will post one of those embarrassing at the moment full body in a mirror selfies in 1 year of the before and after.

tumblr_n4xwinCum21trpya0o1_400

i’m jealous of runners.  purely jealous.  i will try and catch you.

i will post my measurements down below.

my focus: yoga, basketball, running, tennis, swimming and weights.

That will change!

Embarrasing as it is… if I don’t type it… it won’t give me the motivation.

I want to be attractive to someone.  I will be.

All my posts regarding my journey about weight loss can will be found here

Tobermory | 51 of 101 Things To Do / Bruce Trail w/ the kids

Tobermory, Ontario

Stormhaven and High Dump are the two backcountry camping areas in Bruce Peninsula National Park. Located along the Bruce Trail on the scenic Georgian Bay shoreline, they offer a tranquil camping experience in a beautiful and remote setting.  It would be great to hike into the campsite and set up camp for a night and set off the next day for the next campsite.  To spend an extra day exploring the caves and swimming and exploring the Grotto, Overhang Point and Flowerpot Island.  After the adventure it would be nice to take the Chi-Cheermaun over to Manitoulin Island.

I’ve always wanted to explore this part of Ontario and I’ve never been north of Blue Mountain before.  I think the kids would love it since we will have to carry our gear so we will pack light and be creative with our food.

Already starting a Notebook in Evernote with gear needed and ideas and resources.
