How did I miss this?

I’m a turncoat…

A trader….

A defector…

Maybe I should explain…

Over the Memorial Day weekend I said goodbye to XM Radio and hello to Spotify.

I loooooove XM Radio. I’ve been a faithful listener for many, many years. I never thought I would use any other music service.

That was before I stumbled upon Spotify.

I didn’t know what I was missing! Spotify offers such a variety of artist, playlist, “stations” and even podcast! The experience is customize-able based on your mood or tastes! And I love the integration between devices!

I know lots of !!!   But I truly am impressed and unless the format is changed in a drastic way, I just might be a convert for life!

Below is one of the many Podcast available. I found this one very relaxing!
I hope you enjoy it! Have a great weekend everyone!

Out of Step

Lately, I have been feeling a little out of step. I wasn’t really sure what was going on until I realized a few things. Most mornings I wake and feel like I need to go back to sleep. (When did I stop waking up early and expressing gratitude for each day?)  I’ve developed a habit of staying up well past my “bedtime”. (The time that would allow me a full nights sleeping when I get up at 6:00 a.m.) When did I finish that package of Game of Thrones Oreos? When did I stop moving? My activity level has dropped to the point that my Fitbit is probably planning an intervention. (In the not so distant past, hitting 10,000 steps was a light day.) When did I start wearing stretchy pants? And I can’t remember the last time I stepped on a scale. (Geez..)

How did I let this happen??

It does no good to ask why, but to be clear, the best answer is I stopped paying attention to myself. Granted there have been a lot of changes in my life over the last 2 years, but that’s not an excuse.

I deserve better than that.

This revelation has been an eye-opening experience. One thing I know for sure, if I don’t take care of myself, how can I give my best to others? To work? To my family? The answer is I can’t.

Time to dust off the treadmill, crank up Myfitnesspal and pay attention to what I put in my damn mouth…. All things that work for me.

My friends know I’ve always said I’m a work in progress, but at this point in my life I’m determined to complete this project and move to the maintenance stage.

Stay tuned..
