What’s on your workout mix?

It’s now been over three months and I had been using the “I just had a baby, I’m exhausted” excuse to explain my lack of exercise.  It was a challenge to find time to eat and brush my teeth!    So, where on earth was I going to find 30 minutes to exercise??

But then I had an unfortunate encounter involving a dressing room with terrible lighting and decided it was time to FIND those 30 minutes!  Not only for that reason, but when I start exercising regularly I just feel so much better overall.    

I am NOT a runner.  Never have been.  I hate strongly dislike running.   However, I have decided I want to try to start jogging as there is no way I can get to the gym with two kids.   And, I always have access to my jogger and running shoes, so it leaves me with no excuses.

I am starting slow.  30 seconds jogging, then 30 seconds walking.  It’s actually going pretty good.  At the end of 30 minutes, I figure I ran (well ran is a generous word – it’s more like a glorified fast walk with a little bounce) for 15 minutes, which is 15 minutes more than I really have ever jogged in my life.

I find great music helps a lot.  Just getting a good, excuse the 90’s reference, “pump you up” song can really help motivate.    I have had the same songs on my iPod workout mix for way too long and I need some good new ones.  Will you help me?
