My friends, I have gone to the gym five days in a row this week. This is no easy feat, and I feel GREAT! This morning I even ventured to try out the whole "reading on the elliptical" thing, but found that my current reading pieces wouldn't do. War & Peace has too small of a font, and The Best Magazine Writing of 2009 wouldn't stay open without me holding it. Thus, I grabbed the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly and had a great heart-pumping workout while reading about how Zoe Saldana should not be considered for an Oscar as her mainly computer-generated character in Avatar, how Jay Leno sucks (duh), and some great actors of the year simultaneously starred in paltry fare (George, Sandra, Meryl). I felt pretty, pretty good by the end of it.
The rest of the week I designated to my iPod, though. So here's what I was listening to for my workout:
01 Vagabond - Wolfmother
02 Young Crazed Peeling - The Distillers
03 Third Engine - Saves the Day
04 Seventy Times Seven - Brand New (I've come to find angry, vengeful music is great to work out to!)
05 Coral Fang - The Distillers
06 Lazier Then the Furniture - The Matches
07 @!#?@! - Motion City Soundtrack
08 Violet - Hole
09 Beat Your Heart Out - The Distillers (I remembered how much I love The Distillers this week.)
10 This Fire - Franz Ferdinand
11 When I Grow Up - Garbage
12 I Get Around - Dragonette
13 You Make My Dreams - Hall & Oates (because it will make you smile as you end your workout!)
Thanks for reading along with my whole workout mania, it helps to write it all down. Seriously, this will surprise Jesse the most, but I haven't pressed the snooze button ONCE since I started getting up early to work out! I was known for being a "gradual riser." Not anymore!
Tonight I'll be going back to the Friday night salsa class, followed by a zumba class! What's on your weekend schedule?
