Mike/Mike here. I hope you’re having a wonderful day and eating nutritiously…
I’ve been trying to work out more, lately. It’s hard! I don’t like it at all. I love sports and general activity, and I feel great when I start to get some definition going on, but it’s incredibly difficult to maintain any kind of consistency in routine. And if I skip a day, I’m back to my standard 12-year old body. Plus, without a decent protein intake for the day, fagetaboutit! All that painful unpleasantness leaves me with very little reward, and I get discouraged dag-nabbit!
Twilight nation, you came through for me for when I was low on socks as if I were an inescapable, obligatory burden to you and your family. So I’ve decided that you’re going to be my new life advisors and maybe even therapists in addition to your current role as friendly acquaintances and loyal compadres. So I ask you… Does anyone have any "getting in shape" advice for someone who immensely dislikes the process of getting in shape?
But enough about me. How are you?! Hey, Twilight’s coming out pretty soon! How bout that? That’s exciting eh? I’m sure these next seven months will just FLY by!… I’m going to be featured on an upcoming MTV Twilight Tuesday. A fella named Larry Carroll did the interview and he was cooler than Billy Dee Williams (let’s see if anyone connects the dots on THAT reference). Go easy on me, it was my first interview in a while. I haven’t done THAT many interviews in my life. Mainly because no large group of people has ever been interested in what I have to say until recently. It’s a little intimidating, I’ll be honest. There are a lot of elements of today’s "celebrity" culture that make me cringe. It has nothing to do with you guys. But I have to say, being in what appears to be a potentially huge film franchise, hence, putting me in a position to be in the beginning stages of entering this "celebrity" world is scary. I’m grateful for the opportunity and I’m having a blast, but it’s scary. Well, I guess I’m not that worried. After all, it’s just Mike Newton! J But whatever happens, I think I’ll be up for it. I guess we’ll see…
NOW it’s time to do some pushups. I’m not gonna lie, this blog was a procrastination. Checking in with my Twi-hards is a perfectly reasonable excuse for not working out. I’m a really good procrastinator. Probably the best in my family! In fact, the only two things I KNOW I’m good at are acting, and putting off tomorrow what could and should be done today. I’m gonna make a great father. "Don’t worry little Johnny, you can do your homework tomorrow! Now play. Be free! Rules are for squares!" That’s all for now my fellow humans.
