Getting Jiggy With It

Happy Monday everyone!!! Today I start working out at the gym. I asked hubby for one of my bday presents early and am all set to start today. I'm starting with a class so I can stay motivated - and so someone can kick my butt if I start getting wimpy, lol. It's called Fit for Life - and includes: a 15 minute warm up, 15 minutes of step, 20 minutes of floor aerobics, balance work, 25 minutes of resistance work, hand weights for upper body, ab crunches, and 15 minutes of flexibility stretch. Holy crabby patties am I ever going to be sore tomorrow! But it says it's great for those starting or returning to exercise.

The neat thing is, you aren't bound to any classes, you just go to any class you want, stop and start when you want, so if this is too hard or when I get my groove on, I can do something else. I love step aerobics and dance, and there are a lot of those classes available - but I need to work up into them, lol. *I've been sitting on my behind too long*

This weekend was very romantic. My sweetie and I celebrate the day we met every year, and next month will be our first wedding anniversary, so we'll be celebrating 2 anniversaries every year, lol. Hubby started the day with a delicious brunch, and made his famous omelett. Yummers! Oh, and you should have seen the gorgeous bouquet of flowers!! After that we went couch hunting and found the perfect one. We're going to have to wait, it will be 10 weeks before we get it, but it's worth it. We decided to stay in and made a delicious meal with wine, and watched one of our favorite movies - Love, Actually :) It was a wonderful day. I can't wait to celebrate our wedding anniversary next month!

October is almost here and the Moonglade Elite Authors will be having a month long scavenger hunt! Stay tuned for more details - but I promise you'll want to be part of it. Fun and prizes - I can't wait :)

Question of the Day:Someday I'd like to have a personal trainer - just to keep my butt in gear and help mix things up a bit. If you could have a hunky famous guy as a personal trainer, who would you choose?

My first review for Night of the Nogitsune is in and Coffee Time Romance gave it 4 Cups!

The book was so well written that I decided it definitely deserves 4 cups. The dynamics of the relationships depicted are utterly fascinating. Ms. Cory is a talented author who has the ability to spin a tale that is sure to capture many an imagination. If you enjoy stories of unusual shape shifters, then this may be just the book for you.

I'd better get moving here so I don't talk myself out of working out later, lol.

Wow. It's like it's catching or something. ;) I was just over at Lia's blog where she's talking about working out too lol! I need to get off my writer's butt and get more consistant with working out lol. ;)

Lyric said...

Ooh...exercise...I need some of that kind of motivation. LOL Congrats on 2 anniversaries. That's cool. My hubby and I do that too. Our first meet anniv is TODAY! He had to work tonight though. Hopefully we'll get to celebrate this weekend.

Ann Cory said...

Lol @ Tara - ugh and I'm sooooooo sore. I go back today, and somehow I'll have to not talk myself out of it ;)

Thank you, it was a nice anniversary :)

Ann Cory said...

Hey cute Loribelle :) It has only taken me 9 months after my New Year's resolution to get my butt moving, lol. The starting isn't so bad, but the sticking with it part, is very hard.

I don't know - I hate working out - this isn't going to be easy, lol

Ann Cory said...

Hey sweet Lyric - Happy Anniversary to you too! I think it's important to remember when you met, it's such a life-changing day. I hope you get to celebrate too, even if it's just for a couple hours :) *hugs*

Madison Chase said...

How cool! That's great that you guys celebrate both anniversaries. :) I need to join you in the workout department. I've been hanging out in that forum at coffeetimeromance and it's been fairly motivating. We've been talking about stretches for authors and readers b/c we sit so much. The stretches have really helped. :)

Y said...

Happy Anniversary! I know what you mean, my hubby and I celebrate our wedding anniversary (which happens to be on Monday!) and the day we met, which is in mid-October! It's just special, isn't it?

Working out is great, don't you think? I've been working out and going for daily walks with the hubby for over a year now. And it's awesome! Lost a whole bunch of weight, inches and just feel so much more vibrant and energised.

As for your question... oh Gosh, who would I like as a personal trainer? There are a few hunky guys out there in movie and TV world... but today I'm in a Jensen Ackles-kinda mood. So I'll say HIM! ;)

Have a GREAT weekend!

Jenn on the Island said...

Happy Anniversary Ann!

Wow, some women want jewels and flowers and furs, you want a gym membership! Mind you, I asked for cookware for my birthday....

Hope you and hubby had a great day!

Oh, and I want Mark Wahlberg for my personal trainer. I always want Mark Wahlberg!

Stacy Dawn said...

Good for you on getting out there to workout.

What an absolute sweetheart of a husband!!

Ann Cory said...

Thanks Madison - I'm really enjoying the workout, the instructor makes all the difference. I've tried working out at home, but I talk myself out of it more than anything, lol. :)

Ann Cory said...

Y~~ Go you! That's awesome that you've been working out and getting healthy - WOOT WOOT! :) I hope mine becomes routine too.


Ah Jensen Ackles would be inspirational :)

Ann Cory said...

Lol :) Jenn - yep - I said this year I want the gift that keeps on giving - and helps get me healthy too. I sit on my butt so much, I'm not doing myself any favors. I'm hoping this routine sticks ;)

You and Mark Wahlberg - what's your favorite movie he's in?

Ann Cory said...

Thanks Stacy :)
Yeah, he's a good guy. He didn't think it was a birthday present, but I pled my case, lol.
