Ok. January is over for all practical purposes. Time to evaluate those goals!
Eating better? Check. Fruits and veggies up, secret stash of snacks down. Calories that the meal planner gives me? WAY down.
Drinking water? Slosh!
Exercising? Well…um… After a great beginning, it got a bit boring. What to do? Music! I discovered that our cable provider offers some interesting music channels, my kids have hip music on their MP3 players, and slacker.com (an awesome commercial free radio).
If you go to a fitness center you’ll notice that they always have peppy music playing. There are plenty of studies out about how adding up tempo music to a workout is shown to increase intensity and duration. If you don’t have a personal selection of music that makes you feel like dancing (or running, or crunching), do an internet search for fitness music and build one!
There’s one other benefit to adding music to a work out: people tend to assume you cannot hear them when you’re wearing earbuds!
