The gift of
Thursday, December 23, 2010
Yeah yeah it's been awhile and I'm struggling, I've also gained back 7 pounds I lost earlier this year and I hate that I gave up that easy and let food win.
I always get myself something "special" for Christmas (no spouse/no kids so I treat myself).... this year since I got myself the new Ipod touch 4th gen earlier in the year....... I bought myself the Vizio surround sound wireless headphones with bluetooth for my Christmas present to me! I could hardly wait to get them charged to get them connected to my Ipod and try them.
This is the gift of music that will help me get back on track to exercise. I LOVE music and when I listen I can't just sit still and listen, I have to be UP and moving.. I have to be walking, dancing, exercising or SOMETHING to the music. It's the motivation I've needed to help pull me out of the winter blues when I absolutely do not want to go outside and I'm not walking like I did all summer when I lost those 7 pounds I've gained back.
They finally charged up and I put them on..... SOOO COOL NO WIRES and I was on my gazelle....... I was going to workout for 15 mins... but the music was rockin and so was the gazelle so I thought I'd just stay on for 30 mins... ohhhhh my favorite song came on so I hate to stop at 32 mins (hate odd times) so I figure I'd stay on for 45 mins...... which turned into 60 mins...
I worked out for 60 mins and hardly noticed the time ....... I haven't gotten into exercise this much since I got my first pair of shape ups and couldn't stop walking from the minute I put them on!
So this Christmas when someone asks me what I got? I can say I got the gift of music and my mojo motivation back!
so dear blog when I started struggling with my exercise program when the weather got cold and I wanted to hibernate, I just needed to remember what it was that made me want to move again!
