Let the music move you...

One thing that keeps me moving when I am walking or running is music. It's nice to have a beat to move in time with, and sometimes the song lyrics can motivate you, too. Whether it's an iTunes playlist or a Pandora station, on an iPod or on a phone, the music will keep you moving.

While I was running yesterday, the song "I Lived" by OneRepublic played on my Pandora station -- this song has both the music and the lyrics to make you want to step up your pace. It made me want to just loop the song over and over and over...




  1. Why don't you post pics of what you eat in a day. Do that for a week so we get an idea.

    1. I have done the following entries which include photos:

      Breakfast (If I plan to run Saturday morning, I'll eat a Schwan's Sausage Egg Biscuit and a banana instead).
      Afternoon Snack

      I haven't done dinner yet because that can vary greatly from day to day (the other meals don't vary much at all). If my wife makes spaghetti for dinner, I have a reasonable helping of noodles and meat sauce topped lightly with parmesan, a generous helping of whatever vegetables she makes, and one piece of bread (no more). Water is what I drink, unless there's unsweetened (or lightly sweetened) iced tea. Dinner is mostly about portion control and making sure you are making choices that don't throw you over your calorie limit.
