I had a flash of inspiration last week. I need to reward myself with a little incentive at the end of each week that I accomplish my 15 minutes (at least) a day on the treadmill. It will be cheap and fun. Last week, with all the sickness, I only managed two or three days of walking. (I truly lost track of time.) I bought myself a song for my mp3 anyway…but it was extenuating circumstances. (I did mention the rejection from Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine, right?)
I figure buying myself a song at 1.29 a pop is a great way to motivate myself that doesn’t involve food or even a lot of money. The problem that I could see developing is running out of songs to buy, as in, needing ideas for good workout songs. That’s where you come in, dear reader. Drop me a note anytime you hear a song that has a great backbeat for walking. Last week I bought Electric Feel by MGMT. What a fun song. Another fun one with a great beat is Determinate from the Lemonade Mouth soundtrack. I know, it’s a kid’s show from Nickelodeon (or Disney??) but it has some great tunes on it.
How about a photo of one our family’s favorite meals? Aldi started selling these fantastic pints of Italian beef and delicious Italian rolls. Super easy to heat up; toast the bread for some nice crunch, and save the consomme for dipping.
Maybe I’ll do a photo shoot of my awesome pots and pans I got from my mom one of these days. They’re like, forty years old or something, and indestructible. Out.
