I've got a stomach bug. Yes, that's right, that means I've been sick 2 weeks in a row. (Not the whole time, but it's pretty annoying.) I thought that eating healthy and exercising was supposed to help keep things like that from happening? I'm a little bitter...
Before I came down with this bug, I found out that our community gym had aquired an elliptical machine. I had been wanting to try ellippti-cising, but I'd never had access to one before. Working out on machines gets boring for me, but the the fact that my speed is monitored usually means that I get a better workout than I do on my own.
I don't know about you, but music really helps me set the tone for my workout. Music is a big part of my life period. First thing I do when my alarm clock goes off is turn the music on. But, lately I've noticed that I'm skipping through my playlists pretty quickly, especially during exercise. I knew that if I got on the elliptical without switching up my music, I would be finding an excuse to quit after 10 minutes or so. So, I had to go to the source...iTunes!!
I remade my playlist and headed out to the gym; 40 minutes later, I made myself get off for fear of overdoing it and ending up too sore to walk the next day! The music REALLY helped me get through!
So, I thought I'd share it with you all here!
