I have a theory about working out and big plans. If you make the plans and they involve buying lots of things to start you off its just not going to happen. Spending the $$ alone seems to bring enough satisfaction towards the goal that I stop there. I know I'm not alone in this because there is an absurd amount of tredmills, bo-flexes and ellipticals for sale on Kijiji that are "LIKE NEW" or "NEVER USED". With that in mind I opted for the highest rated free app so I didn't invest too much and give up before I start.

So tonight I headed out and had great success. Whew, that is encouraging. But that BEST part was not being awarded the "Lion Badge" in my app (which I don't even know what I won it for... but I do like the idea of being rewarded for doing just one workout) but was the playlist. One song in particular that made my face absolutely split into a foolish grin. My sister sent me this video of a whole bunch of scenes from Sci-fi shows and movies to the song Starships. I think it was months ago now, but it was hilarious. The cuts are so quick that I watched it maybe 5-6 times that night just to see everything. I never really thought about it again until tonight about 6 minutes into my run. (Also, I texted all this to you Steph. Then I realized you don't have your phone! Eep I've been texting you for a while now...)

Wish me luck on this endeavour. Sharing to the blog somehow commits me to my goal subjecting me to social pressure. Hahah :) I'm okay with that - I think it is a great way to use social media if it gets me to stick to my goals. Now, I'm off to decide between watching Independence Day or some Battlestar Gallactica.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoying another post about our Starship-loving Happily Hectic Household!
