Can I brag?
I’ve been doing so much better with my exercise routine. Last year I started using a BodyMedia armband. It’s a nifty little device that records my steps and level of activity and quality of sleep and calories burned. What it has shown me is how terribly sedentary I am because of my desk job. Thus, I’ve become much better about getting onto the treadmill (whether I feel like it or not) and staying on it for a longer period of time. I need to MOVE.
Most days, I begin walking while I read the various blogs I subscribe to, using the Reeder app on my iPad. Once I’ve gone through all the accumulated blog posts, I read People or EW (also on my iPad) or open a book on the Kindle software on my iPad or watch a movie (The Help remains a favorite) on … you guessed it … my iPad.
Tonight, I got on the treadmill, put on my bluetooth headphones, and for a change of pace, opened up my Music app (yes, on the iPad). I haven’t played much country music lately, so I chose George Strait (I crush on George; love his music and have a ton of it) and started walking. George and I spent 45 minutes singing together, me working up a sweat on the treadmill and him looking as cool and handsome as you please on the various album covers showing on the iPad screen.
BTW, with my headphone volume cranked up, it’s easy for me to pretend I’m a great singer. My hubby, bless his heart, told me I didn’t sound all that bad from where he was sitting out in the living room. Hmm.
Just before my time with George was up, I listened to this song off one of his newer albums. Oh my. So good.
