I am unabashedly a very positive person. A family member once called me Pollyanna, which was meant to be pejorative, but I took it as a compliment. Anyway, I have had this song on repeat for days. It just crawls into my head and stays there. (And I may or may not have made a dance routine to it.)
Dozed off watching TV last night but I woke up just in time to see St. Paul & the Broken Bones perform. Definitely my next workout jam.
I was grooving on this song over the weekend. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the song is older than my college student!
Yes, this song is a couple years old but Grubhub has been using this song in its ads and it is stuck in my head now. But that's cool -- every time I hear it I dance!
I have bad timing with phone upgrades -- every time I get a new Samsung Galaxy, the new one comes out a month later! I did it again this year, getting the S8 right before the S9 was released to this incredibly catchy song from a couple years ago.
Guys, this is my theme song right now. I keep walking around singing it because I"m feeling MUCH better after the gastric bypass surgery. I felt like I had turned a corner this past Saturday, but yesterday I realized I turned an even better corner. My tiny meals are staying down, I'm sleeping somewhat better, I'm starting to move more and get more stuff done around the house and -- oh yeah -- I'm down 20 pounds from just a few weeks ago, with my bodyfat percentage going from 52 percent to 45 percent. Boom!
I was discussing carbonated drinks and caffeine with some friends on Facebook earlier today, and how they're off limits for some time after bariatric surgery. While I LOVE coffee and just put a new canister into my Sodastream, I started tapering off on caffeine this past week, getting ready for no caffeine for awhile. And right now, the only fizzy thing I'm drinking is kombucha. I'm hoping I can let it get a bit flat and just drink half a bottle at a time after awhile. I'm not sure what else I'll be eschewing immediately before and after surgery, but I keep humming Imagine Dragons' song "Whatever It Takes," because I know it'll be worth it in the long term.
Hard to believe this song, one of my all-time favorites, is 30 years old. Seems like it could have been written, oh, 6 months ago.
Hey, Tunes for Tuesday returns! I've been (barely) working out at home and listening to sports talk radio so I've been OUT. OF. THE. LOOP. on cool workout songs, but I actually changed the station in my car the other day and was rewarded with this great song from Portugal. The Man. I'm featuring a live version because why not?
I heard this in the gym yesterday morning and it made my cardio a lot more fun. Even the trainers were singing along. I totally wanted a flashmob of singers and dancers to appear but that didn't happen. Maybe next time!
