So, as a part of my “trying to be all-around healthier and happier,” I’ve decided that I’m going to do better with getting some regular exercise. I was doing pretty well with walking in the summer and early fall, and then that kind of, well, went away.
I recently dusted off my gym membership (BAC…I may look for another, less expensive gym when this membership expires…), and I’ve been mostly just walking on the treadmill using my jog.fm iPhone app.
I really like this app–it analyzes your music, and plays music according to the pace of your walk or run. Here are some of my current favorite walking songs:
Bad Medicine/Keep the Faith–Bon Jovi
Bad Romance/Teeth/Lovegame–Lady Gaga
King of Spain–Moxy Fruvous
Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It–Will Smith
Under the Carlaw Bridge–Lowest of the Low
Happy Girl/My Baby Loves Me–Martina McBride
Cold, Cold Heart–Midge Ure
Shine/Desperation Song–Carbon Leaf
Personal Jesus–Depeche Mode
I like songs that keep me at a decent pace and put a little bounce in my step! I’m always looking for new things to add, so if you have any suggestions, please share!
BufBloPoFo Topic for Day 8: What are you listening to these days? New stuff? Old stuff? This isn’t a hipster competition; I just want to know what’s in everyone’s ears out there. Playlist me. Or, if you don’t feel like making suggestions, open up your ipod on shuffle and just jot down the first ten songs that pop out.
Well, since I haven’t done my reading, watching, listening thing in quite a while, it’s been some time since I’ve blogged about what I’m listening to.
Bon Jovi–Lost Highway. Samantha recently gifted me with a copy of this CD. Awesome. I’ve only listened to it once, but I like what I heard.
A copy of the “Cleaning my Room Mix” sent to me by Miss Shortskirt (Jessica). Again, only listened to once, but lots of fun. 🙂
The soundtracks from Once and Juno.
