Hello, hello.

A few things about me lately:

  • I saw “Now You See Me” with Jared the other night–I liked it! I recommend it. It’s definitely a fun movie with great plot twists & very cool scenes. It isn’t going to win any awards, but it wasn’t a waste of time at all (like a lot of movies these days are…..)
  • I am digging snack plates lately. Aka I can’t decide so I load up allll the foods & stuff my face.

around the web

  • I still have a head cold so I sound wayyyy worse than I really am. I feel fine but my nose & sinuses think otherwise. Pass the tissues!
  • I need to learn my new BP/CX choreography. By Monday. But hey, what is new?! (At least that deadline isn’t getting me crack-a-lackin’ now. Hah!)
  • I got to hear baby Perks’ heartbeat again yesterday. It.never.gets.old. There is a human inside me–so freaking cool!
  • And speaking of that human, she is apparently in really good position for birth. Like REALLY good. (TMI if you want it: I’m dilated to a 1, I’m 70% effaced, and baby girl is station 0 which means she HAS dropped and she was so close the nurse could practically feel her head!) The nurse said she’d be uber surprised if she were late, but who knows, right?! (p.s. my doc is out of the COUNTRY until Saturday, so I’m not teaching Zumba tomorrow because I don’t want her wiggling out early. hah)
  • This fall weather has me craving sweet potatoes & sweet potato fries. I wannnnnnnt!

Thankful Thursday

  1. I am thankful for zip up hoodies–I can wear ’em and stay warm but the belly isn’t constricted. #winning
  2. I am grateful for ice. It’s chewable water & I can’t seem to get enough of it! I am NOT a warm or lukewarm water drinker, ewwww.
  3. I am thankful for my Hypnobirthing classes-I’ve learned a lot so far. (I’ll do a post on it eventually)

  10. We saw Now You See Me the other night and loved it. I never get tired of watching Kimmel/Timberlake skits- so dang funny. I never realized Justin Timberlake was such a funny guy. And those sweet potatoes look amazing! Congrats on having your cute baby here soon. So exciting! I’m expecting in February so I’m just about 19 weeks now and you’re right, the sound of the heartbeat never gets old!

  11. Cody and I really enjoyed “Now You See Me” too! Thanks so much for sharing my October challenge! I think it’ll be fun! :)

  14. Hi Annette,

    It’s me. The Lady who wrote the “13 Ways to Run a Good Group Fitness Class”. Thanks for sharing my tips, and I’m glad you found them useful.

    I’m in the same boat as you right now, learning BODYPUMP 87, CXWORX 12 and BODYATTACK 82 choreography for re-launches starting this Saturday. I’ll be teaching BODYATTACK for the first time. Do you like that workout? It’s one of my favorite Les Mills programs.

    So glad you found me … looking forward to keeping up with your fit and healthy updates.
