30 Best Workout Songs +1

Ladies and Gentlemen, 

I have begun running.  As with most things in my life, I have come to a point where just thinking “I’ll do that eventually” has come to an end and “I’m doing that now” has begun.  Years ago it was “I’m going to loose weight”.  Brought on by the realization that one of my favorite things to do (going out to try new things) was severely limited by my self-consciousness and paranoia that people were saying “Look at that fat girl!  She obviously doesn’t need that burger.” [I lost 35lbs in about 15 months via Weight Watchers and am maintaining pretty well.]

My new objective is brought on by the realization that I’m 31 and still haven’t run that marathon but also because it’s a quality of life issue.  We have a big dog – and she has A LOT of energy.  When she’s had a good long walk/run, she’s considerably more mellow, leaving our household much calmer.  

So – on that note – I present to you: The 30 Best Workout Songs a la and an addition from my personal “likes”:  Icona Pop “I Love It”


Gone Exploring

Ok Folks – by the time you’re reading this (unless you’re across the ocean or up at some ungodly hour) I will have taken off for destination “known” to explore and show off a favorite spot in nature to my two favorite people.  So for the day I bid you – Hello! and Happy Saturday!

Geometric Fun

I stumbled across these and though I’m not generally into the geometric shapes and mathematical design… I did enjoy these pieces:

Duvet Cover and Wall Clock

Comfort Food Gear

Because who doesn’t need comfort food once in a while and why wouldn’t you want the gear to make it fun?

3D Safari Animal Cookies, Cookie Scoop and Puzzle Pieces

I Spy Bottle

i spy bottleI was recently scheduled for a doctors appointment and rather than trying to coordinate with my husband for a late morning or an early lunch – I decided to just haul my daughter in right along with me.  This situation, as I’m sure you know, can be a potential nightmare depending on your child’s mood.

Of course, I found this “I Spy Bottle” AFTER my appointment but I will be making one regardless… who knows when the next opportunity to utilize some child entertainment will present itself next?
