I went to the new movie “Solo” last night (that’s the new Star Wars movie for those of you who aren’t geeks like me).

And, I gotta admit I was worried.

Being a HUGE Star Wars fan I was nervous they would screw this up, and Star Wars and the internet did nothing to calm my nerves.

First, Kathleen Kennedy (the head honcho of all things Star Wars) fired the first two directors. Creative differences were cited (I wonder what that really means?).

From there director Ron Howard took over.

An amazing director, but with absolutely no experience directing a film of this magnitude. But really, is there anyone (other than JJ Abrams) who has experience in this kind of movie??? Nope, there isn’t.

And then there were rumours that they had to bring in an acting coach for the guy who is playing Han Solo.

What?? An acting coach?? For one of movie-land’s most iconic and best loved characters. Oh boy, get me a drink people.

Top that off with tepid reviews from critics hitting the internet on Thursday meant I went in expecting to be disappointed and to have my soul crushed (yet again), but another Star Wars storyline, actor, plot screw-up.

BUT I WAS NOT CRUSHED. I LOVED IT!!!

It was fun, entertaining, fast-paced and true to the Star Wars brand and universe.

I have no idea what these freaking critics were watching. Cause it sure as hell was not the movie I watched.

I totally recommend it, give it a big thumbs up and will be going to see it again real soon 🙂

30-Minute Brutal Ladder Workout

This workout kicked my derrière.

I was feeling it, and feeling it three days later too (thank you very much push ups).

There’s even one point in the workout where I almost tap out. It’s pretty funny.

So, even if you don’t do the workout, you might want to watch just to see me whine and cry like a little kitten.

HIIT Workout for Fat Loss

HIIT Workout for Fat Loss

50-Minute HIIT Workout for Fat Loss

Loving husband drives us everywhere. I never drive if he’s with me.

And it’s not because he insists, it’s because I insist.

I hate driving.

It’s boring, I get all cramped up, my low back starts to hurt, my mind starts to wander, I get frustrated with other drivers.

But, when he drives I don’t mind being in the car at all.

I play with the stereo, I keep him entertained, I people watch, catch up on my emails and schedule my social media.

It’s a very productive time for me.

Now, with that said, the other part of driving I despise is getting gas.

Ugh. Call me lazy. Call me a princess. Call me spoiled. Just don’t call me to put gas in your car.

So, to avoid getting gas I strategically use up all the gas in my car until Loving Husband needs it.

I know every Tuesday night he needs my car to get to volleyball. Giving me a full week to use up all the gas so when he gets in the car the gas light is on and he has to get gas.

I have been doing this for months! And it works – every week!

Let me tell you, it’s not easy either.

I have to plan just the right amount of automobile activity that will get that stupid light to go on by Tuesday.

It takes planning and a bit of luck.

But, I am pretty damn proud of myself so far.

So, I tried some new lighting on this workout.

And… I’m not a fan.

It was suggested that I try the lighting so I don’t have fluorescents beaming down on me.

Cause even Victoria Secret models can’t pull off fluorescent lighting! So, really how the hell can I???

In an ideal world I would only film outside, on an overcast day 🙂 

It’s funny, how the older I get the more important lighting becomes.

It’s either not bright enough and I can’t read (yes, I am talking to you Mr & Mrs Restaurant Owner), or the lighting is horrible making me look old. And I’m not being vain, cause nobody likes to look old. Seasoned maybe, but not old.

Hehehe…
