After downloading some of that music yesterday, I can’t stop dancing!!
"I Gotta Feeling"
"Somebody Told Me"
Matt says I’ll be sick of these songs in a few days. I think not!
I went to the gym at 11:30 in my automobile. Sadness. I hate rain + driving. It gets too steamy in my car! I had LOADS of energy at the gym – maybe it was that mushroom coffee after all!? I did 30 minutes on the Stairmaster with Real Simple – some of the fastest stair climbing I’ve done all year! It was over in a heartbeat. I also practiced my testimony in my head from the top of the stairs. Then I moved to the Squirrelliptical (see Q+A page!) and finished with more dancing in my living room that carried into the shower 😉
Come 1:30 I still wasn’t very hungry for lunch. A huge bowl of yogurt + pumpkin at 9:30 will do that. But I had to eat so I can get on the road to class, so I made a nice little lunch.
Spinach salad with toasted almonds and OhNuts dried raspberries drizzled with some St. Helena Kitchens berry balsamic
Plus a High Five Fiber bun – fresh from the oven! – with Nuttzo and TJ’s pumpkin butter. Between the Nuttzo and the flax seeds in the bun, this was a crunch-lovers ideal bite.
To class I go….I’m not packing a dinner tonight so I’ve got double snacks ready to go!
I love that you are dancing around all morning, it can be a great workout and stress reliever!
Great lunch and have fun at classes tonight!
Boo for rain:(
Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) says
I love the dance party idea. I should dance around the house while listening to Pandora.
Meg @ Be Fit Be Full says
What – no pictures of dancing today? Rats!
The rain hasn’t made it to Durham yet but it’s on its way!
Christie @ Honoring Health says
Wooohooo, dance par-tay!
ah, now I have some of those songs stuck in my head. wouldn’t be bad, except those have been played to death here! they are good dance songs, though. 🙂
i need some of those dried raspberries!
Nothing beats a dance party in the living room!
Those raspberries sound amazing in a salad.
Jessica @ How SWeet It Is says
I love finding new ‘old’ songs.
Jen (Running With Cake) says
I agree with Matt! I’m already tired of “I’ve gotta feeling” because they overplay it here in Chicago. I could definitely go for some NEW music! Have a good class!
I agree with you Kath, I don’t think you will get sick of them either. I have had Whatcha Say on repeat for ohhh, WEEKS! haha.
You need to add Passion Pit to your dance party.
Anne [email protected] Weigh of Life says
Those are some pretty fun songs to dance too! Unfortunately, they overplay all of those songs on the radio, so I’m minory sick of them already 🙁
Nicole (dishin') says
I think you may be sick of those songs too….but maybe not 😉 Those are on the radio all the time here…I don’t get why radio stations overplay songs so much!
Lunch looks yummy!
LOVE “Bleeding Love!” It was the last dance at our wedding.
I think you love Earthfare as well as a good deal. I came accross thsi coupon and thought I would share.
Yummy lunch! That salad looks delicious.
Hope your class goes well!
Sarah @ The Foodie Diaries says
I’m with you; I still haven’t gotten sick of Bleeding Love. It has been my favorite running song since it came out haha.. so random
Estela @ weekly bite says
That’s some of the best dance music! And also the best workout music!
Kristie Lynn says
Talk about stairmaster motivation! 30 minutes that felt like a breeze? Not something I’m familiar with 😉
Lauren @ Eater not a runner says
No Air is maybe my favorite spinning song of all time, I never get sick of it!
Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg says
I always THINK I’m not going to get tired of a new workout song…and then I play it ONE time too many, and suddenly, I just know that I’ve killed it. I hate that feeling 😉
Kailey (SnackFace) says
I can listen to “No Air” on repeat for hours. It’s amazing! I don’t even have anyone I’m attached to (other than Muffin aka bestie), but it just gets to me! The others are fab, too!
Mmm spinach+fresh buns (lol)+ nut butter sounds amazing for lunch!
Love all of those songs! Hope school goes good for you!
Megan (The Runner's Kitchen) says
I think I need to get some of that nutzo butter – I love crunchy things! I’m currently snacking on a cadbury fruit & nut bar – love the nuts 🙂
Food Makes Fun Fuel says
I think it’s impossible to grow tired of I’ve Got A Feeling
Sarah Jayne says
Your posting yesterday reminded me of how much I loved Hide & Seek when it first came out….
The first time I heard Whatcha Say I spent HOURS trying to find the song the chorus hook came from…so glad to find it again!
LOL Um no I have listened to Breakeven by The Script on repeat for a week and not sick of it yet?
I LOVE I Gotta Feeling 🙂 I always get to rocking to that while running.
Emily Eats and Exercises says
You inspired me to buy Real Simple today. I’m looking forward to reading!.
I did the stairmaster yesterday for the first time in forever and I thought of you! It kicked my butt 🙂
I think there’s nothing better than dancing in the shower 😉 I’ve had “I’ve gotta feeling” stuck on repeat in my head for like 3 days and I don’t mind because it’s such an AWESOME song. Love me some Peas.
Hallie (Healthy Twists) says
New songs make working out so much more fun! I’ll admit that sometimes I am “that girl” mouthing the words to songs and dancing a little when I’m running…people much think I’m crazy! That Black Eyed Peas song, I’m over, probably becuase I worked out to it almost every morning during my crazy bootcamp experience this summer!
Hillary - Nutrition Nut on the Run says
I like your taste in music…and that you even light a candle at lunch – cute!
Light Delight with TouTou says
I have been hearing that bleeding love for about 3 months – not getting tired of it yet!!
The salad greens goes so well with your dancing plans! both are really healthy!
Mmm pumpkin butter makes every meal better. 😀
lynn (The Actors Diet) says
i love dancing by myself…don’t do it nearly enough.
Shannon (The Daily Balance) says
love dancing around the house by myself (or with the mister) so, so freeing 😉
I am obsessed (no really out of control crazy about) Whatcha Say. I don’t actually have it on my ipod or anything but I play it on youtube at least 3 times/day for the last few weeks.
My other self dance party obsession: Beyonce.
(The current jam for me is “Diva.” It’s so sassy! If you haven’t heard it… head over to youtube now!)
I absolutely love finding old songs I had forgotten about!
Joelle (The Pancake Girl) says
I want some of that Nutzo butter.. and a dance party!
jason derulo, whatcha say, is my go-to running song right now. cant help but move when it comes on!
Mmm, dried raspberries are so delicious! Chewy and sweet and perfectly tart~ yum. Oh, and there’s nothing like a bun fresh from the oven. 😉 Lucky girl!
Jenn Eats Nutritiously Now says
I’m sick of the rain, too. Puts me in a bad mood.
Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope says
I just love this simple salad Kath! Perfect way to fuel you up, without weighing you down (totally sounds like a commercial ;)).
love those songs!
Deb (Smoothie Girl Eats Too) says
I love Matt’s “Tasting” face on his blog! 🙂 Cute!
Sarah (OC2Seattle) says
Love TJ’s pumpkin butter
They may be old, but I never listen to the radio so they are all new to me! (Except I’ve heard them in the background enough time to recognize them)
Any songs in particular?
ohh what fabulous songs, girl you have some taste
have you heard the new Adam Lambert song “for your entertainment?” you must download it!!!
that pumpkin soup looks deliicioussss!!
lk - healthy delicious says
love all of those songs!! Matt’s wrong – you won’t get tired of them .lol
Hey Kath, I read you everyday!
Just wanted to let you know that you can stop the steaminess but putting on your front window defroster it is the little fan shaped thing on your ac/heat in your car. The temp can be controlled so that you aren’t too hot or cold by it, but try it…I guarantee it will clear your windows!
Oh, and I forgot to mention that you must NOT have it on recirculate (that is the little car shape with the sideways U) that causes you to be steamy too because it reuses your internal air in stead of bringing it in from the outside.
