Terrific Tuesday maybe....? Everyday is a new day in my book these days! Today I set out to make this the start of finding the "old"me, or maybe a "better" new me! I slept in an extra hour which was pretty good start, feeling well rested is never a bad thing. After some coffee and computer time, I slowly made my way to the Gym. It is a beautiful day in Bremen high 60's light breeze, perfect biking riding weather.


My Gym is a quick 15 minute bike ride, once there I filled my water bottle with their special weight loss water. Ipod in hand headed straight to my good friend the treadmill. One sip of special water and Katie Perry tunes, I was on my way. I have to say I was feeling it today but I couldn't have done without Katie Perry pushing me and I don't want to forget Flo and Beyonce. Music filled my lost soul today and carried me, energizing every step, an hour later and legs like jello I hobbled off.


I rode home feeling alive again, was it the treadmill or the special water perhaps there was an extra something in the water today. I want to believe it was the music awaking something inside me. I use to listen to music all the time, in the car, at work and home. Since moving here I only hear Katelyn's music and usually am yelling at her to turn it down or better yet off.


I came home turned on music and cleaned the house. Was it a terrific day? For me it was a day I haven't had in a long time.

I'm glad you had such a good day. As much as we hate exercising, sometimes it puts a little fire in our butts and souls. I'm sure the music helped too!
XOXO

Amazing the power the right music has - if you have time for it. I have to remind myself to make time for listening, and am always happy to find my way back.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

it was the endorphin high my friend ;) I ran for 28 years and to this day sometimes literally cry that I can't do much of it anymore.

Beyonce could make me do just about anything at the gym

That place is SOOOOO AMAZING... I would probably be willing to ride my bike if there was a place like that around here... le sigh!
