3 Things I’ve Been Doing Besides Blogging

Saying I have slacked off from posting on this site is an understatement. It’s just a dull and boring February. I do intend to post more because I love having a blog to discuss whatever I want, and I love reading your comments. Next week I’ve got a few more sexually-fueled topics to cover, like a follow-up to last year’s, “Living Vicariously Through You: Sex & The Strange,” which has been one of my most viewed posts ever! 

Fortunately for my sanity, warmer weather is just around the corner, and with that comes lots of outdoor adventures. So until then, what have I been doing? 

3. Seeing mediocre 3D movies

Don’t get me started on the capacity of which I love Kit Harington. For all you Game of Thrones freaks out there, he plays Jon Snow, and actually is a really good actor. I support him in whatever he does because I am, admittedly, a massive fan girl of the curly-haired Brit. However, dare I say, Pompeii was bad. 

First and foremost, Kiefer Sutherland completely threw me off. What casting director thought it was ideal to cast him as a Roman senator? I appreciate him as an actor but not in this type of film. Better yet, who came up with 3D movies so I can punch them in the eyes for two hours, because that’s how I felt leaving the flick. 3D glasses do not make the quality of the film any better, or any more fun.

I’m straying off topic…

Basically I can’t get down with movies where two people fall in love all within ten minutes and then when they are forced to stay apart from one another we are suppose to feel sad for them. Mount Vesuvius, the legendary volcano that destroyed the city of Pompeii in 79 A.D. in and of itself is a very interesting story. In the movie it was second only to Kit’s glowing abdomen. I must say that as it erupted and turned everyone in its path to scorched corpses and ruined existence to mere ash, I was nerding out. Everything else, with the exception of Kit Harington, was not so great.

MORE storytelling, no 3D goggles, and an R rating would have made it pretty badass.

2. Dieting & Cooking

Yeah, they actually do go together! I want to drop 30 pounds in three months, but before you go immediately to the comment section to tell me I’ve lost my mind, hear a sista out. I drink a lot of beer, I enjoy soda with dinner and I eat like shit. So when I say 30 pounds, I mean it. I am aiming for 10 pounds of month, and this is all on a very strict diet. securedownload

I’ve got a lot of great recipes lined up with the help of Tumblr and Instagram. This time around I am only eating clean food. All the chicken, eggs, and fish I get is organically fed, cage-free, etc. Besides that, I am only consuming real food, nothing processed whatsoever. I actually have been enjoying eating avocado without sugary aids a la guacamole.

Anyone with recipe ideas is more than welcome to help me out. So far, I’ve found that cutting up fruits and veggies and using them as a salsa-like topping for steamed chicken or salmon has been absolutely delicious. The only downfall to all this is… shopping healthy is damn expensive!

1. Netflix & the return of my shows

I started a handful of new shows recently and some of my old loves have finally come back. It’s no surprise that I am a huge fan of The Walking Dead, but recently I’ve focused my attention towards whatever Netflix has to offer.

tumblr_mkck5aVLP61qav174o1_500Bates Motel is so damn good. Anyone else out there watch that? I really love the premise: a mother and son in an oddly close relationship who try to start new in a town by buying out an old motel when everything just goes awry. The story is of a young Norman Bates. Anyone who loves Psycho would most likely appreciate this show. The new season starts Monday on A&E.

The first season of FX’s The Americans was a trial run for myself and many of my friends. Most weren’t into it and decided not to watch the season two premiere that aired this past Wednesday. Mistake. What an epic first episode.

Two Russian KGB spies (Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell) are planted in Washington D.C. during the Cold War. Their work is to raise a family, work a “normal job” and do, you know, spy stuff. There’s violence, lots of sex, and a ton of great plot. This is the only show on television right now that brings suspense to a new meaning.

If you are going through this wicked cold winter like I am in Connecticut, you’ll know there really isn’t much to do outside of the house. sarah On The Go is going to have so much pep in the warmer months, I would like to think I’ll be pushing out three posts a week. Until then, I’m off to make myself quinoa stuffed squash and see what’s just been released on Netflix!

sarah On The Go! has mostly been immobile due to that stuff…. that ugly, horrible, white stuff.

  1. Also suffering through this ridiculous winter. Also happy to see The Walking Dead. Also loving Kit Harrington.
    Also losing weight; I have lost 25 pounds since the beginning of October. Smaller portions (of everything, no foods out of bounds), a bit more exercise, and most significantly I think, a reduction of alcohol intake. There are a lot of calories in alcoholic beverages, more than I thought. Good luck to you, and hang in there, winter can’t last much longer!

    • Awesome to see we have all this fun stuff in common, except the journey to drop some lbs. I appreciate the feedback. Smaller portions and no alcohol are key for me to keep in mind. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  2. 1) bananas are super cheap and make a great breakfast (I have 2-3 with strawberry’s in a smoothie)
    2) Include or try kale instead of traditional lettuce. It has so many benefits and I personally found that I have next to no pimples since I have incorporated it into my diet :)

    Happy eating healthy :)

  3. The pics you post must be old ones, because, going by them, you don’t seem like you need to lose weight. Congratulations, though, on deciding to eat healthy. I wish I had the willpower.

  4. High-five on the Bates Motel front! Also, it sounds like you should look into Paleo. That’s what I do most of the time. Super healthy, no processed junk, no wheat/gluten, no dairy…etc. It sounds rough, but it makes you feel like a champion.

    • Not even kidding, I tried to get that book from Barnes & Noble and it was on the top top shelf. I searched the store for some random employee walking around to help me (I’m 5’4) and no one was around! Hence, I left without the book and didn’t diet for months after that.

      I saw recipes online but I like to have physical books so I can take them with me places and ogle them. Does that make sense? Thanks for the advice though, I’m most likely going to try B&N again since you reminded me :)

  5. Hi there, just became aware of your blog through Google, and found that it’s truly informative. Im gonna watch out for brussels. I will appreciate if you continue this in future. Many people will be benefited from your writing. Cheers! gddcbedbdkbe
