Well so much for NaBloPoMo! My best intentions of posting every day this month went up in flames on Wednesday, then I had a decided lack of motivation yesterday after knowing that I won’t be hitting what I had hoped was a simple goal - writing every day this month. I also have not run every day this week like I had set out to. After doing cardio on Monday and Tuesday I took Wednesday off (although I did do a 4 mile walk around the lake with my wife) and then for the same reason that I didn’t write yesterday I also didn’t exercise.
But here it is Friday and I just knocked out a couple of miles on the treadmill and I had a whey protein shake for dinner. What got me motivated after a couple of days off from exercising?
I received a couple of packages today. The first was a replacement battery for an APC UPS that was croaking (is there anything more irritating than the beeping from a dying UPS?). Looking forward to getting that thing fixed. The second package was a care package from my friends at Sansa, who sent me a couple of cool new music players to try out.
One of the devices comes preloaded with workout music - the Sansa slotMusic bundle with the Don’t Quit card. I decided that it would be a pretty good excuse to hit the treadmill with my new music, and half an hour later I was covered in sweat and totally tired.
All thanks to some new music.
I’ll post a full review of the music player later, but for now I’ll say it’s a pretty cool little player with a lot of possibilities. It got me to workout tonight - that’s something!
