Back to reality – plus my Workout Playlist

workout shoes weights and tissues

Everything has been going great with my new workout schedule! Except for the past week of sickness where you’ll notice an absence of working out on my part, blah. I really dislike being sick. Spending the last 4 days or so in my pjs, plus missing a few days of working out really put a damper on my spirits. But, tomorrow is a new day and I am feeling better now. 

These past few weeks have again reawakened my love of how good it makes me feel when I am taking care of my body. Not only that, spending time with a friend does wonders for my attitude as well. I don’t really have friends outside of my family so when I have the chance to spend an hour two, three, four times a week with someone, it makes me happy. It’s nice to have someone to talk to and it’s nice not to talk as well. When you have a person beside you, working for a similar goal and egging you on, it’s so much easier to just keep going. 

I’m looking forward to getting back on the elliptical tomorrow evening! WooHoo! I love taking along my cell and just plugging in my earphones and going. I bought these AMAZING Yurbuds Ironman sport earphones from Amazon I loved them so much that I had to buy another pair!

Now I have one pair for home on the computer and one pair just for working out :) I am committed! Here’s my current Spotify playlist. I’ve been adding and deleting songs, trying to find that perfect workout playlist. I actually upgraded to Spotify premium so I could take my playlists with me and am loving it! I think I’ll keep it since it makes life much easier since I can just stream my playlists instead of trying to create new ones on a free service. What’s on yours?
