A First For Me &My New Favorite 30 Minute Jammin’ Playlist
Well, let’s just say that it is a very good thing that I had an amazing workout last night. It is always good to get a really hard, sweaty workout in, but yesterday especially.
Why? you ask?
We had to go to the mall after my workout to pick up a couple things.
As a side note, before I go into why it was a good thing that I had an awesome workout – let me just say that I am a mess after working out. I mean like sweated all my makeup off and my hair is all frizzy and gross and I’m sweaty. I never go anywhere besides home afterwards and I was really torn between if I should just wear my workout attire and go as is – or change into normal clothes (which is all I had time to do). I mean at least if I am in my workout clothes everyone can see why I look like hell, where as if I am in normal clothes, it is like I just look like hell all the time or for no reason. Not that we should care what people think, but you know what I mean.
Okay, okay – anyway. Every time we go to the mall, we go in the entrance that has a Cinnabon right near the door. And every single time, I almost die because the smell is so wonderful.
Annnnnnd, I have never tried Cinnabon before (or “a” Cinnabon?”) Yes this is true.
The closest I have come is my beloved coffee creamer.
So after some running around we decided that on the way out of the mall I would finally try the sacred Cinnabon because Torrance insisted I have not yet lived until I’ve tried one. So he so generously decided we needed a 4-pack so he could eat them for breakfast throughout the week.
So, once we got home I cut one of those ass-jiggling-inducing monsters in half and popped it in the microwave.
Now, if you eat that for breakfast, serious kudos to you. Holy sugar rush! Phew! I ended up eating about 2/3 of my half before I was all sugared out. I do have to say though, the doughy gooeyness really is delicious. I like sweet stuff, but there is a boundary where things get a little too sweet/rich for me! I am somewhat of a sugar-wuss if you will.
And now this is the part where I remind you that this is a healthy living blog (kinda)…. and ok, I get a little political for a second.
America, this is why you (or we, as a country) are over weight.
That is all.
Oh, and just for fun – on top of discovering Cinnabon’s are marvelous and frighteningly delicious, I have decided that Torrance needs a Fedora.
I like to call this his K-Fed “what am I doing with my life, my music sucks but it’s a good thing I had a thing with Britney for a while so that people now know who I am” look. Yeah, it’s kind of a mouthful, but I think it fits.
Okay, speaking of that awesome workout that I had – I have to share my new favorite playlist.
There is a guy at training that always has the best playlists. If he is there, we always use his iPod because he always has a vast array of good music for us. Since I have been attending the 5:30 sessions, I am happy that I get to experience them (since that is when he goes too).
So, he somewhat inspired a few of these songs that I wouldn’t have thought to put on a workout playlist.
This list is just over 30 minutes and is really fast paced so it’s amazing if you need one to really pick you up a little and keep you pumped. If you have seen some of my other playlists – you know I prefer fast with a good beat anyway, but this one is extra good.
If you overlook this, I recommend you at least download “A Warrior’s Call” especially if you like rock. That song will seriously make your workout 40x better. I have always liked it but I especially do after seeing it performed live at the concert a few weekends ago and the crowd going crazy.
- Do you ever go out in public (store, etc) after a really sweaty gross workout?
- Cinnabon, yay or nay? Any foods/desserts you can only eat in small doses because they are so rich?
Some dark chocolate desserts and also crab – I like it but I can only eat a little at a time
- A favorite fast-paced song of yours right now? Please share!
