Limp limbs and a string of bad ones
I must say, yesterday was tough on the ol' upper limbs. We did 4 1/4 miles on our paddle the other night and somehow I thought it smart to do this insane upper body workout the next day. So to say I was in immense pain between screaming biceps and triceps is an understatement. I wasn't sure what I'd be capable of doing for my workout yesterday so Walk Away the Pounds with no weights it was. It's not like not using weights meant it didn't hurt, even arm movements hurt like a mutha. Just moving my arms in the slightest made me wince but I know sometimes shaking the soreness makes it feel less sore the following day. Now that it's the next day, I can say...not so much.
Oh I don't think I told y'all about our movie experience a few days ago. We saw the new Mission Impossible and it was pretty good. A little long. The second mission could've been edited down quite a bit because toward the end I just closed my eyes and didn't really care how it ended. I listened to the ending. Then it was time for Trainwreck. You know, that movie everyone is raving about? We liked Amy Schumer before she suddenly became the "it girl." Her stand up was pretty funny so of course we would like this movie, right? 1 hour and 50 minutes into a 2 hour and 2 minute movie...we left. Yep, it was so irritating, there was so much vocal fry on her part and we didn't care about the characters that we couldn't just wait twelve minutes to see how it ended. Our only regret according to the Mr...we didn't leave earlier. (Which would've been five minutes into the movie but you don't want to think you've been trailer duped two weeks in a row...we were.) Eh.
The Mr was supposed to do some comp time work last night but that got canceled and since we worked out earlier in the day, that meant we had the evening to do whatever. I made coconut shrimp and sweet potato for dinner.
We got a rent one get one free coupon from the local video store so we rented two movies that looked intriguing but not worth full price. Hot Pursuit with Reese Witherspoon and Sophia what's her name from Modern Family and Horrible Bosses 2 which we've been putting off for months for some reason. (Given my love for Jason Bateman, I'm surprised I held off this long.) Hot Pursuit was pretty bad...like we would've left 20 minutes into the movie if we were at a theater, bad. I respect Reese for wanting to try something different, it just shouldn't have been that. But the funniest line of the movie was "you've been Coopered, bitch!" I'm sure a clip will end up online eventually. Then there was Horrible Bosses 2. It wasn't a horrible movie (unintentional pun!) but it was decent. We remembered pretty quickly that the little screaming guy Dale was the weak link in the first one. Jennifer Aniston was pretty funny. I still can't help but like anything with Jason Bateman in it. Speaking of Jason, I can't wait to see his new movie The Gift. I love the dark departure for him.
Seen any stinker movies lately? Ever left a movie?
