Music is a must….

Having music in the background makes me want to dance around, fidget, and keep the feet moving.

Having an MP3 player for listening to PODRUNNER.com tunes got me moving... and they kept me moving. PODRUNNER has FREE MP3 tunes that can be used for any type of exercise. They consist of music that is set up to a certain beat per minute. For example a slow walk may be 120 beats per minute (BPM) while a fast run is 180 BPM. You can use the music to help you keep a steady pace for any activity. There are FREE prep programs for 5k, 8k and 10k runs, as well as varied beat mixes for building strength and endurance. I’m so captivated by the music that I’ve started donating to the cause.

While constantly moving may be great for calorie burning it looks a bit weird to the general public. I have been stopped on corners and in stores to be asked what I was doing and why. Funny things can happen after I give them my answers, some shake their heads, some laugh and some praise, but some have actually started stepping it up. =)

Since I’ve started moving more, I've noticed my circulation is much better than in the past. DH is sitting around with layers on and I'm comfortable. I know it's because I'm moving more, because on the days I don't I'm chilly -- truth!

I have music in my office, in the car and at home. With my MP3 player, I have music on the move too!

I will bop 'til I drop! =)

    I love that you do it even when people look at you funny! I do too when I bop to the music in my head at Walmart and other stores! I also just downloaded some 80's tunes that have a fast beat in order to have some music going. Now to get them onto my ipod! Thanks for sharing! I think you rock with all the steps you do every day!

    AMEN! Moving keeps the blood flowing. I have seen the same with Dh. He's shivering and I'm comfy, even if it's cold.

    I like that, "bop til you drop" emoticon

    I have music on when I first get up and am having my coffee, eating, getting geared up for work here on the computer but then I usually prefer quiet for my writing and stuff. I have special songs bookmarked so I can call them up from YouTube at any time:


    but other than that, I was only use to music driving to/from work.
