Forgot to mention the big thing I got myself this week… I was getting frustrated with my cd player I was using for working out, so I investigated MP3 players… Of course, the first one of choice is the iPod – but it’s a tad expensive… so I looked at others… iRiver, Creative Zen, Rio… I ultimately ended up with the Creative Nomad Zen Xtra 30GB Mp3 player… I FUCKING LOVE IT! I downloaded the 9gb of mp3s off my HD, and now i’m grabbing others I wanna put on there too… Talk about a music overload! Of course, with me, there is NO SUCH THING! I can never have enough music, and I think this year is gonna be exactly that… the year of music for me. I think 2005 is the year I come alive, in more ways than one… I feel like i’m in the starting gate, poised to jump at the bell – and never look back… So watch out!
Anyways, I got a little sidetracked there… I love my mp3 player!!!
Watching the ‘MusikMafia’ show on CMT right now, very cool – they all seem like nice guys (Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson, etc) – and I could see fitting in with them well… It’s all about music – the fuel in my life – and I’ll be involved with it all year long… in fact, this april, Detroit’s having their first annual music conference (MotorCity Music Conference or MC2) – and I plan on being there, maybe starting my own little DetroitMafia or something… lol But I’m going, will be taking TONS of pictures, probably blogging onsite too… Gonna be a great time!!!
Ok, so I’ve been a tad busy… Between working, working out, karaoke, and helping with a new band… So tonight I’m exausted, but I wanna post something… anything… lol
This week was a great one for my workout, I finally got the hang of using the eliptical machine, and am using that instead of the treadmill for my cardio – I actually am enjoying that better! Also, yesterday, I weighed myself – since it would be exactly 1 month since I started – and I was very pleased to see that I’ve lost 15 lbs!!! Talk about a nice surprise!! And it only fueled my drive to continue and continue harder!!
I actually look forward to working out each day – I never thought I’d say that. I miss working out when I skip a day! Yesterday I was kinda pressed for time to work out, but I did it anyways – and I was pissed when I found out when I got outta the gym that my early evening plans were cancelled – I was going to take pictures of the new band – and had I known that the plans were cancelled, I would have probably worked out for another 30 minutes… Who the fuck would think I’d be saying that to myself 2 months or so ago? Not me!
Tomorrow, Trent and I will be going to play laser tag for the first time together – I can’t wait! I know he can’t either… of course, we’ll play on the same team for a game or two – then watch out, we’ll be against each other!
Anyways, that’s my mind-dump for the moment… there’s more to dump out, just don’t know how to put it all into words sometimes…
