Oscars

Law & Disorder

I have been watching all the movies that won the Oscar for Best Picture. The next on my list was the 1971 winner, The French Connection, directed by William Friedkin and starring Gene Hackman and Roy Scheider.


The French Connection follows two narcotics officers as they track down leads they hope will bring them a major bust. Aside from some famous chase scenes, the movie is understated for a police film, with events unfolding more like they might in a real investigation.

Camera-Phone Diet - Wednesday, June 3

Until I reach my goal of losing 15 pounds (which will put me where I was on my wedding day), I'm doing something called the "Camera-Phone Diet," where you photograph everything you eat. Wednesday I had leftovers for dinner. I also tried to stay on track, with lots of fruits and vegetables.


Here's what I ate:


Wednesday, June 3 - Breakfast  Wednesday, June 3 - Lunch  Wednesday, June 3 - Afternoon Snack  Wednesday, June 3 - Dinner  Wednesday, June 3 - Minipizza  Wednesday, June 3 - Coffee  Wednesday, June 3 - Ice Cream
