Sexy Back

I hate Mondays. To overcome this, I had a pumpkin cappuccino for breakfast. :) Yum! I also got a call this morning saying my sister & mom are coming over right when I get off work tonight. They had to come down for my sister's dentist appt (3 hours away!) and they figured they would stop and have dinner with me. This means now I have to leave work at least an hour early in order to have enough time to clean my house before they get there. They need to think my house is ALWAYS clean & tidy! Grrrr to last minute notice!!!

I am super sore today! I got my treadmill put together on Saturday and I used it for 45mins both Saturday & Sunday. And today I can't walk without hip pain/soreness. Great. Maybe it's a good thing I have to take a night off due to the family coming over tonight. I will rest it and get back to the workouts tomorrow.

Working out again was great! I felt so strong and in control. I missed it! It also gives me a chance to clear my head and focus on my music and the beat of my feet. Are there songs that always remind you of a certain time in your life or a certain person?

The song "Sexy Back" (don't laugh, it's good for grooving on the treadmill!) always reminds me of the guy, Jordan. I met Jordan in the summer of 2006. It was 5 months after Brian and I broke up and shortly after I met my current boyfriend, Tom. (I was still dating around, and hadn't fully committed to Tom yet) Jordan was funny and soooo good looking! Dark hair and dark eyes...and he had a great personality. I always had fun with him. He was always telling me how beautiful he thought I was, and how amazing I was. He treated me like a princess.

He had a downside though. And I hate to admit this, but he was broke. He was a car mechanic still living with his parents. He was also very immature at times. He also had no plans on moving out of his parents house in the near future. I went back and forth hundreds of times. Do I pick Jordan or Tom? And when it came down to it, I didn't see a real future with Jordan. Tom was more stable, more "husband quality." Obviously the money thing wasn't the only thing that swayed my decision. But it was the biggest reason. Not that Tom is rich by any means, but at least he can take me out to dinner without me having to pay for it every time!

Every time I hear that song I wonder what happened to Jordan, if he's happy. When I picked Tom over him, he vowed to never speak to me again because I broke his heart. (Even though we went out for 2 months and I was never officially his g/f.) and I still wonder if he's still living with his mom and dad. Haha.

There is an annoying rap song called riding dirty that reminds me of a loser I dated in Chicago. And U2 With or Without you reminds me of my 1st love apparently I CAN live without him! =D

sooo proud of you for jumping back on the fitness bandwagon! i'm still searching for mine...

yeah, songs ALWAYS remind me of times in my life. i've been a music lover forever. the only downfall is when the song reminds me of sad or awful times. ya know?

I had to chime in too! I was getting my hair cut tonight and the salon had some sappy love song station on and Hands to Heaven was on.. (Breathe? I think).. anyhoo, it reminded of a time that I can't quite put my finger on.. but I don't like it - and every time I hear that song, I'm taken back to it. Creepy song I guess. (Well that and I wanna know what love is by Foreigner.

A few weeks back, I was reading a post, where the blogger said that for her, right now "love is not enough to be a couple".

And I think it's true. You can be in love with someone but if the person isn't worth it, and it becomes complicated and painful, why keep going?
