It's The Little Things

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

I get overwhelmed easily. So I'm being careful not to go all out here and crash and burn. For example: I have started walking on the treadmill. Right now I am watching an episode of Doctor Who on my kindle to reward (okay, okay, bribe) myself for doing this. I can't watch this show at any other time - my clever rule - and I'm a total Whovian, so it's big motivation for me.

Eventually however, I'd like to move up to walking more quickly and dare I say it? Yes, perhaps even jogging. I doubt running speedily is in my future as I am rather generously endowed and ...oops, losing focus. Did I also mention that I am easily distracted?

So. Eventually working out harder and not watching videos. I will need music. But ick, having to find songs that I like, and then downloading them to my phone and...
You get the picture. And then, my light bulb moment. I have Pandora Radio. Might they have a category for Workout Music? They do. They have a lot. They have 80's categories and that is ME. I am forever an 80's girl. I clicked on one and it started to play "Let's Sweat". I love that song.

Dilemma solved. As I said, it's the little things.

    emoticon LOL.. I will always be an 80's girl....clothes and all! I love the normal waist jeans that come up just over or right on the belly button. I love all the 80's music. I even still like the 80's hair...I think. Not real big on 'big hair', but I like the bangs & hair cuts.
    emoticon music makes such a difference in working out doesn't it? I just ordered a cord from Amazon yesterday, to plug my ipod into my treadmill. My treadmill has speakers built in, and I can't wait to listen to MY music. Strange as it may sound, one of my favorite workout sound tracks is from the movie "Inception"... OMG...I love that music!....starts out slow...and then starts pumping with boldness & excitement. LOVE IT!
    Keep up the good work! emoticon

    You need to try a sports bra by Moving Comfort

    These will keep "the girls" in check without binding. I recommend price shopping on amazon also. Sometimes the sales at moving comfort are better than amazon and sometimes amazon is cheaper.
