15 Movies in 15 Minutes.

14 February 2015

Here are the rules:
Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen movies you’ve seen that will always stick with you.

They don’t have to be the greatest movies you’ve ever seen, just the ones that stick with you.

First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes. Copy these instructions and tag 15 (or more) friends, including me – because I'm interested in seeing what movies are in your head.

Okay, here's mine...

1:   Pride and Prejudice (2005)  
-  Matthew Macfadyen striding purposefully across the field in his long coat and boots or Colin Firth as he comes dripping out of the lake.  Um.
2:   The Avengers 
-  I love hot kickass team work.  And Tom Higgleston isn't too hard on the eyes either.  But I'm a sucker for dude with a bow and arrow.  I want to learn how to do that too.
3:   A Room with a View 
-  This is just a beautiful movie.  Visually.  It was long, but not boring.
4:   Dirty Dancing
-  Patrick Swayze dancing.  
5:  Grease 2
-  Okay, guilty pleasure.  I can sing to every single song.  I'm not even a little embarrassed. 
6:  Monty Python and the Holy Grail
-  I love all of their movies but this is my favourite.  They just looked like they were having so much fun!
7:  Serenity
-  I've always love Firefly.  And Captain Mal was yum.
8:  Star Trek 2009
-  The best reboot.  EVER.  My favourite scene was at the end, when out of nowhere Sulu brings in the Enterprise to save the day.  Totally amazing!
9:  Pitch Perfect
-  Yes, I watch the finale over and over and over.  Didn't you?  Oh, it was just me?  Ok.
10:  Raiders of the Lost Ark
-  I'm in love with Harrison Ford.  And I'm a sucker for ancient history.  And miracle biblical stuff.  That whip was pretty kickass too.
11:  Magic Mike
-  Okay, yes, let's address the first thing:  they are all hot.  Especially my Joe.  Channing Tatum is a phenomenal dancer.  And it was a funny movie.  I laughed my way through the whole bloody thing!  And NO. ONE. ELSE. DID.  Did they think it was a serious drama?!  Seriously?!  I'm sorry but I take no movie with a penis pump seriously!
12:  Princess Bride
-  "Mawwiage is what bwings us togeva today..."  
13:  When Harry Met Sally
-  They had me at Sheldon.  
14:  Guardians of the Galaxy
-  Chris Pratt.  He was so cute and funny.  And the movie was such a joy ride.
15:  The Matrix
-  Too cool to describe.  Therefore, I will leave you with the finale to Pitch Perfect.  Go ahead and watch it over and over.  Go on!  I dare ya!

Who do I tag? All of you. How's that?! I can't just pick 15. Go on. Do it. And let me know in the comments if you want so I can see it too!

2015 To-Do List.

2015 is MY year!

It really is!  And I'm so freakin' excited!  I love pressing that "Reset" button, and becoming a New Me.  You know -- Better... Stronger... Faster.  (Cue theme song!)  Yup, it's the 6 Million Dollar Me but without the electronic implants.  Maybe.

Anyway, I have big plans for 2015!  Plans within plans.  But if you don't write these plans down, they don't exist.  Seriously, one of my coaches, mentors, and business partners, Susan Sly says that.  And considering the fact that she IS an actual 1+ million dollar woman, I listen to her.

So, what's on my 2015 to-do list?  Check it out...

1:  Get to 21% bodyfat and see my muscles, dammit!!!
I have a photoshoot scheduled for mid-February, and I'm going to look amazing by then, but for now, I've gone and hit it.  The dreaded "P" word.  Plateau. UGH!!!  Time to bust through it with daily consistent action by...
  • drinking 3 litres of water daily
  • not making lame excuses and just sticking to my workout schedule: weights, zumba, HIIT
  • cleansing/IF weekly
2:  Hit a very special rank in my company
I admit it.  I've been playing small.  I could've helped so many people by now, but because of my own perceived limitations, I doubted myself and the gift of health, wellness, and freedom I have to give others.  The rank I want to hit is a symbol of how many people I help to create abundant lives for themselves.  It's not about me -- it's about them.  So I will...
  • aim to mentor 3-5 people on my team to $100,000 annual incomes this year
  • help 10-20 men and women feel amazingly healthy
  • do my daily method of operation consistently 4-5 days/week
3:  Be active in the blogging world again
I know.  You've all missed me.  Admit it.  Oh, I've missed you all too, of course!  It's an amazing community of fun people.  Granted, I've moved on (a bit, but not completely) from the mommy blogger world -- many of my old cohorts have done the same -- but I have so much more to share about my new life outside of mommyhood.  My new tribe is still out there.  I just have to talk to them more.  I'll be doing that by...
  • blogging 3-5 times per week here on Life Candy
  • reading 5-10 blogs/day
  • commenting on 5 blogs/day
4: Go out for dinner with my pretend boyfriend Gerard Butler, dazzle him with my beauty and wit, and despite all his begging, refuse to run away with him.  And you thought I'd let go of this one!  Ha!  I laugh at your silliness!

I'm so excited for this new year!  And I'm so bloody stoked that you're here with me to experience this truly sweet ride!  Onward!

45 and 9 days.

14 November 2014

In case you're wondering, no, I haven't done the photoshoot... YET.

I came down with a 24hr flu on the Sunday before my birthday, then spent the rest of the week resting.  One of my 2014 commandments is to care for myself better, so I did.  I rescheduled the shoot to February -- Khammy's booked solid and can't take me until then!

Meanwhile, I'll be doing my "after" pics for this round of the Isabody Challenge this weekend, so you'll still get an idea of my progress when I post those here.

Putting on and holding on to muscle has always been an issue for me, so I was afraid that the week of inactivity would take me back to the beginning: no muscle, just fat and sadness.  Then I looked in the mirror, and although I could cut some more, my waist was still cinched.  All in all, better than I thought!

Oi! I will kick Ahnold's ass!

Despite the last remnants of sniffles, I still celebrated my birthday!  It was probably the best one I've had yet.  Very relaxed and very content.

The morning was some awesome "Me Time".  I turned down some coffee invites to relish some alone time where I don't have to do work, and I am free to watch Netflix documentaries... like this one.

The afternoon/evening was a relaxed and lovely time with my sweet husband and beautiful babies.  I then went to dance class, and then went out for drinks and nibbles at Earl's on Main with Myrtle, Chelsea, and the rest of my girls.  As usual, I was LOVING EVERYONE by the end of the night thanks to Myrtle and Jodi and the 2 Bellinis they gifted me with that night!

The next day, I went for lunch with my bfff, RMF.

All in all, an awesome celebration!  Do I feel 45?  Well, what does 45 feel like?  Awesome, sexy, and ready to take over the world?  Then yeah, I feel it, and it feels good.  ;)
