Tick Tock

Can ya feel it? The weekend is almost here! Yipee! The funny thing about this weekend is that I have practically zero plans-- my sister and I are going for a run tomorrow morning, and Mal and I may have some friends over tomorrow night to watch the Celtics, but other than that, zippo on my agenda! I am psyched for some serious R&R! I'm definitely one of those people who needs "me" time; I need downtime to recharge.

My afternoon snack today was Fage with fresh strawberries. No sweetener needed today!

After lunch, I ran some errands, and somehow ended up at Dunkin Donuts!?! Funny how that happens, right? I swung in for a small iced coffee. This beautiful weather makes me crave iced coffee in a bad way!

Lunch was Shepard's Pie leftovers. I took a photo, but it really wasn't a pretty picture-- for some reason that combination of ingredients just doesn't photograph well, so I decided to leave them out and spare you. Instead, I posted photos of the most delicious oatmeal raisin cookies ever!

I had three of these goodies after eating my Shepard's Pie leftovers.

Running Playlists

I need to update my ipod in a major way! I'm sick of listening to the same songs over and over and over again. If you have any recommendations, please send them my way! I found this playlist on Women's Health Magazine's website and thought I'd share: WH Running Playlist. There are some great songs on it! I can't wait to download some of them.

Two of my favorite work out songs:

Call on me - Eric Prydz
Here in your arms - HelloGoodbye

They really make me want to push harder during those last 10 minutes or that last mile. Love the blog - have a nice weekend!

Ahh yes, have fun this weekend - relax, for sure!

I'm really into the band called Metro Station, and there songs are PERFECT for workouts - my favorite songs by them are titled: "Kelsey," "Shake It," "Disco," "Control," and "Now That We're Done."

Lately I've been listening to drum and bass group called Pendulum, I think the album is Slam...anyway, about 24 minutes in, when I'm ready to wuss out, this track "Hold Your Color" comes on, and helps me push through it...or I've been listening to Rise Against...basically something heavy and fast paced... :)
