Workout Roundup: Game Plan (slightly) in Motion

Its time for the next workout roundup everyone.

I said that I’d have a gameplan to get back into the working out habit. We’ll just have to see how it goes. To be honest, I’m actually approaching this segment a little different this time so I have no idea what happens after this point as the working out hasn’t happened yet. You’ll be as surprised as me when we get to how much (or how little) that I’ve worked.

Week 1

Wednesday: Zumba

Sunday: Weight Training

Getting in a late evening workout does feel good. While I was about to do another Zumba session, I remembered my game plan and went with doing some weights/body weights while pairing up two fairly short workouts together but compliment each other well as it works the back muscles and the abs. These are my problematic areas so its my weakest and the most strenuous which is also why I don’t want to jump right back with something really tough.

Week 2

Saturday: Light Calisthenics

Crunches 20 reps x3
Squats 20 reps x3
Jumping Jacks 50 reps x3

 A light workout since I was having a hard time so to make sure that I could at least do a little something, I went with some quick calisthenics to just feel good about staying active.

Sunday: Heavy Chores

Its not exactly a workout session however, I helped out with putting up a car shelter for my mom and then did a bunch of garden work to get rid of the containers full of heavy wet soil to finish up the winter prep work to close the garden. Its not exactly a workout but they were both very active. It included a lot of walking and lifting and moving about that I actually had some muscle pain afterwards so I decided to pass up on any further workout.

That’s it for these two weeks of workout!
Not perfect but some things just didn’t work out in week 2 so I worked with what I could!

Halloween 2018: Lights Out (2016) – Rewatch

A bit of cheating today as I rewatched Lights Out with my husband who had not seen it in the first time. Main reason is that I’m under a mountain of work to finish a deadline for tomorrow so this will have to do for now as I couldn’t finish the movie I was watching after this rewatch. Review for that coming up soon though. 🙂

In this second viewing after two years, I still remember a lot of how I felt the first time and the scenes which is quite impressive to say about a film because I have a horrible memory. It may be a second viewing but I still enjoyed the tension and the use of lights and the whole premise of it. I still see some of the flaws that I mentioned in the original review but its easily ignored as it keeps a decent paced because of its controlled run time. It never lingers too long to be over dramatic and keeps its horror moments even some of their predictable jump scares to work in the realm of what they are doing.

Head over to the original review when I saw it at Fantasia to see my full thoughts. It really hasn’t changed that much.

Tranquil Dreams

The next movie in the Fantasia Festival Line-up before almost a week off before the next one is Lights Out. I haven’t been able to finish the trailer on this one and it hits a lot of my fears such as darkness. Its one I am excited, skeptical and incredibly nervous and frightened to go see. Lights Out is presented as a Montreal Special Screening and was a sold out show. It also presented me with one of the most engaging film watching experience. Please note the film watching and not film. It seemed to need that clarification on Twitter. Everyone screamed and laughed and emoted together. Maybe it will disturb a normal theatre experience but Fantasia is a different vibe because a ton of people there are film buffs if not horror film buffs which adds on to the fun.

What’s Up #8 & October Plans & Suggestions?

Its time for the next What’s Up. I might start taking out the number versions soon and just keep it with themes of the video or something, if I can figure it out.

Either way, this week’s is a tad long. There’s some tangents and a lot of editing to even get this length. Apparently, I like to ramble A LOT. If you hold on to the end, one of them is talking about October plans for the Halloween marathon this year.

Without further ado, here’s what I’ve been up to the past week or so (a bit before also). Things get back to actually weekly stuff next week.

Thanks for watching!

After Hours #3 – Sucker Punch

Season 2 is right around the corner for Movies and Tea! However, we have Elwood’s After Hours pick to talk about: his pick is one that I’ve heard both love and hate for, its Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch! Going into the rewatch, we represent both sides with myself being in the hating it after my first viewing a few years ago. You’ll see whether the second viewing changes my mind, even just a littler.

Head over to Movies and Tea to check out the episode! Hope you enjoy!

Movies and Tea

Elwood and Kim take another look at Zack Snyder’s highly diversive “Sucker Punch” a film which has gone on to garner an impressive cult following since it’s release but is it all flair and no substance? Join us in the booth as we dive into this genre jumping world to find out if audiences were too quick to dismiss Snyder’s “Alice in Wonderland with Machine Guns”

Come join us in the booth!!

Opinion Battles Year 4 Round 8 – Favourite Film From 2017

This year’s Round 8 of Opinions Battles is here and we are looking at our favorite film of 2017. Granted I still have a ton of movies to watch to at least feel like I caught up a lot of movies chosen here I did see and a few of them even were considered. Ultimately, I chose Kong: Skull Island because it had a great balance of everything. It wasn’t Oscar-nominated or anything but I never care about that sort of thing. Head on over to check out some other great choices and remember to vote in the poll for the choice you agreed with the most.

The Shape of Water is one film that struck home perfectly, it showed how loneliness can be difficult to get through and finding hope in the most different person can turn the life around. We have beautifully shot movie with stunning performance and it did go onto to win Best Picture at the…

Movies and Tea #8 – The Three Musketeers

Its time for the next episode of Movies and Tea. Its the penultimate movie to our Paul W.S. Anderson focus this season: The Three Musketeers! Head on over to check out the show! Tell us if you’ve seen this adaptation and whether you like it.

Be sure to follow Movies and Tea to not miss out on our individual reviews of each of the movies and other fun content as well as the podcasts. We have something special planned once we wrap up the last movie of Paul W.S. Anderson (for now), Pompeii for this season.

Movies and Tea

Compared to the other films in his filmography his “clock-punk” reimaginging of the classic Alexandre Dumas novel marked a noteable changeable of pace for Paul W.S. Anderson.

Critically panned on its release we take another look at the film to find out if the critics were too quick to judge what is arguable one of the more original adaptations of the popular tale. So come join us in the booth.
