Crocodile Rock

I got up early today, went to the gym, had a lovely breakfast and made my train on time – such a great start!

I overslept today and missed my train again.

Oh well, at least there is sunshine!

I had to drive in, otherwise I would have gotten to work too late for my liking. Luckily I didn’t even need my iPod because the radio gods were on my side. I played another amazing concert for my non-existent fans. I started the set reenacting the last scene from Dirty Dancing with, ‘Time of My Life’ then I Journeyed along to, ‘Don’t Stop Believing,’  next up – I turned into a young black man performing a little hip-hop with Young Money’s ‘BedRock,’ then I quickly threw on my funkiest shades and some glitter, turning into an older, gay man with Elton John’s ‘Crocodile Rock,’ more English men – the Beatles’ ‘Here Comes the Sun’ (appropriate for today), I belted out ‘I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing,’ I danced while driving to ‘Borderline’ by Madonna (can you get a ticket for that? Maybe with my moves you can?…), I saddled up my horse with Big and Rich, I really sounded great with Vanessa Williams ‘Save the Best for Last’, I re-lived my old guitar playing days (I think it was one summer when I was about 10) with ‘Smoke on the Water’ (my bad-ass Dad taught me that one), got a little trippy with Steve Miller’s ‘Fly Like an Eagle’, sang about Cecilia breakin my heart with Simon and Garfunkel, also sang about Sally with Eric Clapton, serenaded ‘My Boo’ with Alicia Keys and Usher, had an 80’s flashback (I mean, I was born in ’86, I was probably rockin out even then) with Lionel Richie’s ‘All Night Long,’ I acted like a ‘Basket Case’ with Green Day, honky tonked with the Doobie Brothers, had an excellent guitar solo with The Eagles on ‘Hotel California,’ and closed the set with Bachman Turner Overdrive’s ‘Takin Care of Business’ cause when I finally reached my office, that’s what it was time to do…

Proof that I once was a rock star

Falling asleep on the train is embarrassing

Its been a long week, I’m pretty tired. Who isn’t?

I got on the train, grabbed a great seat (no one squished in next to me!), and opened my book. I don’t think I even made it through a full sentence; I fell right asleep. I didn’t just take a light snooze though, I full on passed out. When I woke up I was sprawled out, things everywhere, apparently just not giving a crap about people watching me with my mouth fully opened and most likely a little drool coming out.

I quickly got over the embarrassment, I mean what do you want me to do? I’m tired! My only problem at this point  – well maybe not my only problem, but my main problem at this point – was that I had to dig deep in order to find some motivation to go to the gym and run 3 miles. This is the last thing I wanted to do, but since I am training for a half-marathon and have made the commitment I decided to just turn off the complaints running through my head and just get ‘er done.

My workout went smoothly and when I was done I was really happy that I pushed through. It’s so easy to complain and to talk yourself out of going to the gym, going outside for a run, going to a class, etc. but you know that once you just shut up and do it you’ll feel great about yourself, maybe even a little proud. Even if throughout the whole workout you can not wait until you’re done and are able to just go home, it’s worth it.

Something that helps me keep my energy up is music. Here’s a playlist with a ton of good songs that’ll help you keep going.
