A quick note:

Hi,  This morning while on the treadmill, earbuds in place, belting out "Don't Do Me Like That" along with Tom Petty, all three terriers came in with anxious expressions. They have gotten used to Mom's new activity, but the sound of my very loud, unmusical voice, threw them for a loop. They looked around thoroughly to make certain I wasn't under attack, and went back to their naps. I had to laugh!

Speaking of music, if any of you have suggestions for a exercise playlist, I'd love to hear them. I'm sure I have lot's of older (much older) songs on my ID, but thinking of which ones would work is stressing me out. So, especially if you are certain of any updated tunes with the right tempo, let me know. Pleeeeeze! I can't increase my distance/time w/o the help of some background noise to pump me up
.
Thanks for all your encouragement. It helps to know that 50 lbs is not an uncommon goal. I know better than to shoot for what I weighed in my 30's. That's was when I worked out for an hour, or more, every single day of the week. I'm just looking to feel good, and, with some luck, be able to shop for clothes amongst the regularly sized fashions, as opposed to  Plus Size. How sick I am of that label. Are you?  Love to you all.  M

  1. My Power Songs on my NikeGPS app for the moment are ColdPlay "Paradise" and "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" ...goofy perhaps... but they inspire me. You could search workout music on iTunes - I've bought Serena Williams' workout trax which have upbeat music...and the theme to Legally Blonde is a goodie! Have fun.

  2. My daughter tells me that with the 25 off she finds walking between buildings at work, doing house work, etc. is just so much easier..... that is NOT why we want weight off, but it will be nice to physically make things easier.

  3. Michele, I am a die hard Tom Petty fan, have been since I was a mere slip of a girl at 18 (with no need of a treadmill then LOL)and commend your excellent musical taste. My excercise regime recently started with Fat Boy Slim's Right Here, Right Now. Sure to put you in the right frame of mind. I'm embarrased to admiy that a great tempo for walking tho is anything disco from the Bee Gees, haha, about as far as you can get from FBS and the great TP of course. Keep it up, you're gonna feel awesome xx

  4. Itunes has lots of music arranged just for excercising--search for excercise or running music. Whatever your favorite genre, they will have it. I like classical (set to a beat) but my husband has Billy Joel, 80s, etc. Many are even made to be 30 minutes long, so you just start it and when it is done, you are done!

  5. I have a weird playlist for my walks....it has some 80's Prince, some 70's Bobby Sherman and Partridge Family....I try to choose music for how it makes me feel rather than a fast beat. If the music makes me happy, I tend to pick up my pace and want to keep going and listening!

    Can't wait to hear about the new granddaughter!

  9. CCTV drain survey London are becoming more and more necessary as many mortgage lenders are requiring them prior to the approval of loans. It is also very good practice if you are looking to buy any property if you want to avoid any expensive repair bills for blocked or collapsed drains. Of course leaking drains can cause more than damage to just themselves, permanent damage could also be inflicted on the foundations of the house also.

  11. I enjoyed your post for many reasons. I have lost 24 lbs in the past 5 months. Have you looked at eating Paleo? It is one of the easiest ways to eat and it makes you feel so much better. I won't preach but maybe look into it. Some people lose fast and some lose slow. I have taken up Zumba which is the most fun you can have exercising.

    I am also working on the Sara's Revival but only have 4 blocks done at this point. This week I cut too much fabric off and have to re-do one block that I had half way finished! UGH!
