Ok, we'll see how this treats me tomorrow. I'm new at this, so please if you have any songs that pump you up and get you motivated, please so share - leave in comments. So here's the list I've compiled:
Hey, Soul Sister - Train
Don't Turn Out the Lights - NKOTBSB (ok, really I couldn't resist - not sure if it's the song or the thought of all these 'boys' to keep me going)
Born this Way - Lady Gaga (didn't love this song until I heard it a billion times one night)
Crazy Beautiful Life - Ke$ha (secretly LOVE her, although not so secret now)
Back from Cali - Slash feat. Myles Kennedy
Shameless - Ani DiFranco (some serious ass kicking notes)
Boom Boom Pow - B.E.P. (anything B.E.P. would get any BODY moving)
So much to Say - DMB
Whoa is Me - Down with Webster (just something about this song)
Love the Way you Lie - Eminem feat. Rhianna
Crazy - Gnarls Barley (need I say more)
Wind it Up - Gwen Stefani (she just kicks ass is all)
Let's get Loud - J.LO (the louder the better)
Stronger - Kanye West (totally love this song)
Blah Blah Blah - Ke$ha (love)
Take it off - Ke$ha
Cotton Eyed Joe - Rednex (didn't know there was an original to this wayyyyy back)
Cherry Pie - Warrant (brings me right back to the 6am BodyPump classes at GoodLife)
DJ gotta us fallin' in love again - Usher (logan loves this - Eyes, Eyes, Eyes)
Alright, if I'm getting my ass out of bed tomorrow, er, in a few hours and take advantage of Logan having a sleepover at Grams, I gotta hit the sheets....after I read some more of this awesome book I'm reading: Rumor has it - Jill Mansell - this will lead to another post, another day....

Man oh Man, was I ever ready to chuck my iPod up against the wall and was cursing iTunes up to the moon and back ~ then I figured out what the problem was..... .....it was me, not my laptop, iPod, or iTunes. I thought I had lost all of the songs that I had purchased, they weren't on iTunes or on the iPod to be transfered....but I did find them in a file that I was just about to delete...whew, good thing I checked. Anyways, I got the whole thing worked out and all of the songs transfered that I wanted. Man I'm in love with Slash and Myles Kennedy - Back to Cali - that should give me some motivation for my first ever on my own walk/run. Which leads to..... The start to my new GOAL. I don't set goals for myself very often. Maybe in fear of deep down knowing that I won't reach them or I'll just give up. This time NO - No giving up. Not with the support or my ever supportive Husband or my P.I.C. (Partner in Crime) Stace who will be by my side. My P.I.C. and I have joined a Walk to Run Clinic in Wiarton. I have tried running in the past, but then became pregnant with Logan, and decided it wasn't the best time to keep it up. I really feel this time is different. My goal is to be able to Run, not walk, 5kms by my 28th Birthday. We have the perfect route in our small little Village - it's 5kms from our houses around some back roads and back. Perfect! Stace and I have walked it casually a few times, and it takes just under an hour - not bad - if we stepped it up a notch, I think we could kill it. Well, off I go to make my 'Make Me WANNA RUN' playlist....I should add that in the next post. I should take a photo next week as well of the Beautiful Park that we get to run around....amazingly beautiful Bluewater Park on Georgian Bay. Well stay tuned.... And T, by the way, CONGRATS on the loss of 20 friggin pounds....amazing!!

The blankets are hung on the line soaking up the sunshine and fresh air and I am taking in some solitude while my Little Brother, Hubby, and Logan, with Marley, are out on a nature walk in the 'wood's' behind our house. It's been a pretty good day, although Logan seems to be taken over by the snot monster again. I spent the earlier part of the afternoon in the backyard with my Dad, Brother, Jaker, Logan and Marley. Nothing in particular happend to make me smile, but I did just that, Smile. It's nice when the simple things bring a smile to your face. I've also been thinking about 8 years ago, today, that Jaker made his way to London. I met him up at the Silvercity parking lot at Masonville Mall. I was so nervous that I broke out in Hives the night before, all over and up my right arm. I even remember what I wore: American Eagle khakis', a black t-shirt, and my favourite Gap Jean Jacket. We spent the day just chatting, shopping, eating lots of Yogen Fruz - maybe 3 stops that day. We took a huge walk at Springbank Park in Byron. I remember driving in his truck listening to songs that I have never heard before, but when I hear them to this day, I am taken right back to that first date. WE went to T.J.'s for some deep fried pickles and I remember eating a super big messy burger too. I never imagined back then on April 12, 2003 that we would be what we are today. From neighbours, to ex-neighbours (jake would call me that every time he seen me), to MSN friends, then to dating, becoming engaged, getting Married, and having the most beautiful son in the world. We have our ups and downs, and there are some days that he drives me wildy insane as I am sure that there are days he feels the same about me. Just as some days he makes me want to scream and shout, there are more days that I love him to pieces and most days I feel as though my heart is going to burst with Love. I wouldn't change the past 8 years for anything, Jaker, I love you and this beautful little family we have created. Happy 8 Years together, although you don't really count it as an anniversary anymore ;)

It's been a long while since my last post - I can hardly believe where the time goes. So much has happend since my last entry: Logan's Birthday Dinner on the 18th and Birthday Party on the 20th, Valentines Day, me going back to work, hot yoga, trying yoga at home, St. Paddy's Day, Logan walking then not walking, playing outside for the first time, Logan's first sickness - an ear infection, first big scrape on his face, first faceplant wipeout outside, the tales of Logan hitting and kicking me....whew....there's a lot that I haven't wrote about. I hopefully, next week, will get caught up on writing more about these fun things - and what's coming up: Learn to Run program starting on the 13th, 'shooting' and album cover for a local band.....
Truth be told, I have been slacking after reading two blogs by two amazing girlfriends : http://dawningofjanuary.blogspot.com and http://littleblackorreddress.blogspot.com
January's blog keeps me in stitches. Guaranteed, if you have or have been in the company of small children, her posts will make you smile, maybe even laugh out loud a little (or in my case, a lot). Maybe it's knowing her for such a long time, and really knowing her personality and loving her to bits makes me a bit more biased on her blog, but I really feel January really shines through in all ways January and I love her for doing this. Tanya's blog on the other hand, inspires me (it's you T who has inspired me to do this walk to run program, and at least be able to run 5km by the summer time). I love this woman to pieces as well. I love her brutal honesty, and I love how much she cares for everyone in her life. Her blog does make me laugh, maybe through reading her words, I can really 'hear' how she intends to be saying things, and I love her use the 'F' word - oh T, 'F' this and 'F' that. I love to read of her achievements (yay, 18lbs down) but feel her sadness and frustration when things don't always go the way she wants them (T, tostitos aren't that bad). Anyways, I don't think my writing skills are as up to par as thiers, but that's ok, this is my life, Life as I know it.
