Saved by the Podcast!

Save by the Podcast - what? What does that even MEAN? Well let me tell you! It has been quite the interesting day. As I was getting ready to leave the office today at 5pm (typical DC rush hour, of course) the front door to our office decided to completely lock itself. No one was going in or out! Luckily we have an emergency back door, but as I am the Office Manager and all, obviously I had to stay to ensure that we had someone to fix the problem. How awful would it be tomorrow to force some of our important guests to go through the back door through the... shall we say... sketchier part of our office. So needless-to-say, by the time I even got to the metro, I was ready to call off the workout for tonight and just chill out (and eat dinner, since I wasnt going to get home until almost 8). I hoped on the metro and put on a new podcast I downloaded yesterday.
OMG - said completely valleygirl style, of course - it was AMAZING. SOOOOO inspirational. I actually got home, through some dinner in the oven to heat, and popped on a 30 Day Shred for a quick, but still intense workout. THEN I through on a few circuits of No More Trouble Zones just for good measure! It may not have been the 40 min run I had planned, but considering that an hour earlier I had basically completely called off working out, I was goshdarn proud!
So that being said, I have to put in a HUGE for this AMAZING new podcast I found (downloadable on iTunes) - Two Fit Chicks and a Microphone! Run by Shauna aka Dietgirl (for any of you bloggers out there, she is quite a celebrity) and Carla aka MizFit. Not only do these two have really inspirational stories, they are also hilarious and talk about real topics and questions that we as new (or reacquainted as I like to call it) fitness and health people are interested in. You can also check out their website at twofitchicks.com
Does anyone else have any podcasts that really motivate them or that they find helpful? I'm new to this podcast thing, but they certainly make my hour long metro ride more enjoyable (and informative!).
Anyway, c'est tout pour aujourd'hui! Salut!
