Breaking a Sweat

I have been in a great mood lately... A mood called "motivated." It has me doing a lot more than I used to; think staying in bed as long as possible and not wanting to leave the house. Now I do things on my own and I have been exercising to aerobics videos on YouTube. It's been great. My heart is happy and healthy to be getting so much oxygen again.

I will let you in on a secret, though: my body isn't aerobics coordinated. I can salsa and merengue all night long but aerobics moves leave me befuddled. I end up jumping around like a crazy person with my arms flailing just to keep my heart rate up until they get to something I can do as well.

This got me thinking I can just jump around like a lunatic anyway and do it to music I actually like. Yeah, I know... I am a genius. I never said I was fast, okay? I have been in a bit of a rut lately so things are finally giving me "duh" moments and I am running with it.

So today's Musical Mayhem is music I can jump around to like a convulsing penguin. First track up: Rebel Yell by Billy Idol.


Go ahead and dance. You know you wanna.

What songs get your heart rate up?

Y'know it was for this very reason why I've refrained from turning to the variety of dance-themed games available. Last week I started walking the airport run. So far I've only done it twice but I'm hoping to make it at least a twice a week thing.
