I've started walking the track on base.
It's my pants.
They're starting to get tight.
You see, I like the junk food. And my metabolism is rudely dying on me.
I won't give up my junk food. I just can't.
So I'll walk.
And while I walk, I'll listen to music.
Now, a lot of people listen to the music of today when they walk.
A lot of the music of today hurts my ears.
So I make up a playlist of a variety of songs.
Here's one of those playlists:
Life's A Happy Song from The Muppet Movie
Defying Gravity from Wicked
The Goodbye Song from the Smash soundtrack
And Then He Kissed me from The Crystals
Barbie Girl from Aqua
Daydream Believer from The Monkees
God Only Knows from The Beach Boys
I Heard Your Voice In A Dream from the Smash soundtrack
Hold On from Wilson Phillips
The Great Collapse from The Zolas
Greatest Hits from Lost from Michael Giacchino
Some Nights from Fun. <---hey look, that's semi current!
Does anyone else start to dance when they walk and listen to music?
Because I did.
For instance, Defying Gravity excites me so I found myself twirling and skipping. I don't think anyone saw. Maybe they did. If so, they might have assumed I was drunk.
I started bouncing around with Life's A Happy Song from The Muppet Music. Jason Segel is so much fun to walk with.
As I walked, I waved to the people who went by. After all, we were fellow exercisers! We decided to get up from the couch and do something. Hello! (I mostly got odd looks.) (Also, most people were running. I was just a walker.)
I plan on walking at least 5 times a week. I hope the walking helps because I really, really don't want to go to a gym.
Wish me luck!
