Tonight I begun the daunting task of putting together a playlist of tunes to listen to while I workout.
Well, I say workout but I mean jog.
Well, I say jog but I mean 'walk briskly'.
Actually I am attempting to do the 'Couch to 5k' program, but I am reluctant to say that on the blog because if I quit it in 3 weeks I won't just know I'm a quitter, but those of you that read my ramblings will also know I'm a quitter.
But hopefully I won't quit.
I bought the couch to 5k application for the iphone and I feel good about it this time. I feel like I will really stick with it.
And the fact that the hubs acted like I would use it one time and forget about it is an even bigger incentive to complete the challenge.
But he has good reason for his assumptions. Anybody remember The Shred?
Yeah, me neither.
So I have been putting together a workout playlist and I just can't seem to narrow it down. There are too many good get-your-butt-moving songs.
But I've narrowed it down a bit.
I of course started with with Britney because she will never fail me when it comes to get-my-butt-moving music.
I have been with her since the beginning. I was there when she was innocent, I defended her when everybody said she got implants, I saw her go from skanky to mommy all the way to crazy crazy train and now back to pop princess. I never abandoned her and she has never abandoned me when I needed good jogging-walking-briskly tunes.
I then moved into a little Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift followed by Coldplay. Needless to say I love all genres of music.
And please lets not forget Backstreet Boys. I mean seriously who can listen to "Everybody" and not want to get up and do a choreographed dance? Not me.
I then concluded the playlist with some tunes by my very own hubby. Don't worry none of the tunes are written for me or about me. That's not his style.
But even though they aren't about me, they are still good songs and they will remind me that somebody out there loves me when I feel like I am dying on the treadmill.
So now I have two playlists each containing 30 minutes of music. I feel good and ready to combat the treadmill.
And yes, I know that running outside is better for your body and I would love to run outside, however, my only problem is that my ears tend to feel like they are going to fall off if I go outside in anything less than 72 degrees.
I'm not really cut out for this working-out, physical exercise, endurance thing.
But the Couch to 5k is still calling my name.
So now that I've probably disgusted a good majority of you by admitting my love for all things Brit Brit and Boy Bands, tell me, what is on your get-your-butt-moving music?
