I’ve been doing a lot of at home workouts lately, as it’s been both rainy here in Perth and I am trying to teach my dog that it’s not playtime every time I get on the floor! (It’s a work in progress, if you didn’t see my Squating With My Dog Post.)

(Because we all are busy with life!) Continue reading “Weekly Workout: 10 Minute Heart Pumping Cardio Routine”

Fitness & Health Expo Perth 2016

I’ve been to conventions before but this was my first time attending a strictly fitness related one. I was pretty excited to see everything that the Fitness & Health Expo Perth 2016 had to offer, as conventions are some of the best places to sample an industry without hours of online research. Plus, after spending the morning sitting at my desk job, being able to walk around for a few hours was a huge plus! Continue reading “Fitness & Health Expo Perth 2016”

Squating with My Dog

Everyday I take about an hour of “me time” to fit in my own workout. Some days it’s easy. Some days I have 4 circuit classes to teach, 3 loads of laundry to do, 2 dozen emails to read, and one needy dog that thinks exercise means playtime! Continue reading “Squating with My Dog”

Suicide Squad: My Thoughts

Yesterday my partner and I decided to break our typically 9:30pm bedtime and catch a 9pm showing of Suicide Squad. While we may be slightly paying for it today (we both ended up taking a long nap), it was so worth it! Getting to see one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2016 opening weekend hands down was worth losing a bit of sleep over it. Yep, I am a geek like that.

If you want to see the movie without another opinion weighing you down, I would stop reading here. For my review, keep reading on! I will try to keep any major spoilers out of it, but I will put “MINOR SPOILER ALERT!” just to be safe. You’ve been warned. Continue reading “Suicide Squad: My Thoughts”
