I got a new toy! I can't remember ever being this excited about a little electronic gadget before, but I am totally psyched about this one. (Did I just date myself again? Oh, well - I'm still "psyched." )
I'm a fan of BooMama's and one time she talked about grabbing her IPod an going for a walk. For some reason, it struck me as ... well, fun? Could it be? Exercise has been one of those things that I know I need to do, but fitting it in is a whole different challenge. But I'm changing that. (See, I'm telling you, so now I'm kinda stuck with that statement.) I'm walking in the mornings. And I would love to run a 5K before the year is out without completely embarrassing myself.
And all those exercise junkies who tell you that your whole day goes better when you do - as much as it loathes me to admit, 100% true.
And, when searching for the motivation to actually get out of bed - I previously failed to consider the beautiful, beautiful alone time that comes with going out on a walk ALONE.
So, I'm adding praise songs to my new gadget - and then it becomes wonderful alone time, praising God, exercising and being able to think an entire sentence without being interrupted.
I may have just found my new bliss. (of course, check back in a few weeks and we'll see how that getting up before the sun works out! he he)
So, please share you favorite songs to get me started. Because I'm as behind on the music of the day as I am the music players and cultural lingo, so I need some serious help.
