Music is a MOTIVATOR

Why do I constantly make the same dumb mistakes? At least every third workout I eat too much before I get on the treadmill and then I struggle throughout the whole thing. UGH. I am much better when I just have a small bite of something or just some water and then eat a bit afterwards. But at least I still put the time in! Focus on the positive.

Wearing my Brooks running shirt today - it's moisture wicking and generally awesome. If you like the shirt (the picture on there is a cupcake, sorry I cut it off but I'm all about the saying) you can find it on sale here - don't forget to also check around online for coupons/promo codes!

When we got our treadmill I imagined using it while watching my tv shows. I don't know how some people can do it, but I can NOT watch TV while running. If I'm just doing a brisk walk then it's fine, but the minute I start jogging I can't concentrate on what I'm watching. Music is my motivator, I work out much better when I've got some motivational tunes going. Here are some of the highlights from today:

Paul Oakenfold ft. Brittany Murphy - Faster Kill Pussycat
Skrillex - Bangarang
Technotronic - Pump Up The Jam (everyone should have this. seriously.)
Breathe Carolina - Blackout

My musical tastes are all over the place, so don't expect me to stick to any certain genre with my musical highlights. I also love being introduced to new music, so if there is a favorite of yours that you'd like to share I'm all ears!

I tried Greek Gods Vanilla Cinnamon Orange greek yogurt today and loved it... which is strange because I don't care much for most greek yogurt. The fruit on the bottom stuff makes me wanna hork, honestly. But this stuff is delicious. Doubt I'll be getting it often since it's kinda pricy at my local store but for an occasional treat it's great. Maybe I could take some vanilla greek yogurt and put some cinnamon in it... but how to get the orange flavor in there? Any tips, aside from putting orange slices in it?

Found this on Pinterest today and I love the saying, so I'm going to end with it:

I don't think I've hit habit status yet, but I'll get there!
