I had no idea there were Discworld movies. More to add to our household movie watching list.

 

Oh, yes indeed.  Avoid Colour of Magic, it looks absolutely awful.  Everything is wrong with it, starting with being based on Colour of Magic, and continuing through all the casting and performances and everything.  I returned it to the library unwatched.  Hogfather is immensely good, and immensely faithful to the book.  Going Postal is immensely good and, while it departs from the book factually, is very faithful to the feel of the book.  The Vetinari pictures I've been using are from that.  They both look amazing, and have a superb cast, and are two-parters.

 

(There are also cartoon mini-series based on Wyrd Sisters and Soul Music that you can find on Youtube.  They look like cheap '70s cartoons, but they're super-faithful to the books.  I don't find them as charming as the live-action ones, but in a pinch, you know?) 

I felt like I could run forever, like I could smell the wind and feel the grass under my feet, and just run forever.

I like that you are keeping the momentum going through 'zero week'. Are you changing anything up for the next challenge do you think? 

 

And I also have to start reading Guards, Guards! I got sidetracked by like the 1000 other books I am trying to finish, haha. I am reading Mistborn right now, have you ever heard of that one?

My plan is to do something a bit lower-key, based on really using my fitness tracker better.  I kind of want to make it automatic to really use it well - hit movement goals, track sleep, pay attention to inactivity alarms.  It's easy to fall into the habit of not using that information, and just letting it track.

You do need to read Guards Guards!  Kishi is reading it right now, he'll tell you how awesome it is. :)

 

I haven't read any of Brandon Sanderson's stuff, but I do listen to his podcast.

The tracking idea sounds good. It helped a lot for me with food. I was like you in that I just tried to track at the beginning, then after a full challenge of just tracking, I started to make changes to my habits. Seems like a good way to go. 

 

I know! I will get to it soon. I get distracted to easily. And I was reading some heavy stuff before Mistborn, so it will be good to get a couple of not-so-serious books in.
