Sweater Weather.

December: Soundtrack to my life.



There’s something to be said about truly feeling like you are in the right place at the right time. Even for a second, an hour, a day, a year. There’s something magical in feeling like everything that is happening is just… right. Maybe it’s the day, maybe it’s the month or maybe it’s the season, but I want to wrap up that feeling and put it in my pocket so I can have it whenever I want. I want to cage it up. It’s definitely not something that I always feel but it’s a feeling that I truly enjoy and feel content with. Today is one of those days with that feeling. Things feel right. Some things today were around in the past but maybe weren’t the right time or place. However, today they are right and may have joined together as a path in life I was supposed to take. Either way, i’m anxious and excited and ready to see what comes from here.

It never gets any easier, you just get stronger.

I’d like to thank todays workout to none other than Ms Lady Gaga. Thank you for the 5 + songs you have produced that are fabulous to do a long run to when you are super tired and lazy on a nice freezing cold Minnesota Saturday.


It’s amazing to me how everyone has such a different perspective and understanding of what a true work out consists of or what it means to actually work out. I wish I could have went into stealth mode and video taped the woman next to me in the woman’s weight room as she tried to do some machine for an arm workout. She was a very small older woman whom would use her entire weight and strength to pull down this bar in any way possible, leaning back and to the side and fighting through to get it down, almost banging her head into the wall consistently. And the look on her face as she would get the bar down was of pure success and accomplishment…. all the while not at all the way you would go about pulling this bar down or go about getting a workout in. People assume if they are at the gym and trying that they are making a difference and doing it right. However, truth be told sometimes a bad workout is no different than not working out at all… Sorry lady :/
