I woke up this morning at 5:00am, plugged my IPhone into my new Elliptical, switched to the “Make U Sweat Mix” and eagerly climbed aboard. Three minutes in and jamming away to Orianthi’s “According to You” I began to feel like I was running a New York City marathon and I was in last place. As I huffed and puffed like the Big Bad Wolf, I went on to the next tune…Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone”. Well, “Danger Zone” was probably a perfect choice because I believe that I was heading toward cardiac arrest after only 5 minutes. Pretty certain my pulse was headed right into the danger zone with Kenny.
Whew! I made it 5 whole minutes and I am going to attempt another 5 minutes tonight. Perhaps a good choice of music tonight will be Maroon 5’s “Harder to Breathe” and Destiny’s Child singing “Lose My Breath”…because that is cleary what is going to happen.
The good news is I am back in the game and even if it was only 5 minutes, I am still making the choice to get up and make the necessary changes even if it means a call to 911.
