Tunes for Tuesday: More Bounce to the Ounce, by Zapp and Roger

Over the weekend, we were watching the Broncos beat the Patriots, and the pregame show featured DeMarcus Ware of the Broncos talking about the music he listens to to get him psyched for the game. He mentioned the old school super-funky Zapp and Roger and my brain immediately went to this song. As I'm sure you all know, music can go a long way to motivating fitness.

Tunes for Tuesday: Water Under the Bridge, by Adele

Was procrastinating watching a rerun of The Tonight Show and caught yet another fabulous performance by Adele, singing one of my favorite new walking songs. I've been busy with school volunteering and ripping up the home office, so making it to the gym or getting out for a walk is a great release. I've kinda put blogging on the back burner a bit, with one of the reasons being my farked-up eyeballs. Limiting screen time has been helping the cataract glare a bit, but my eye doc appointment is in three weeks so fingers crossed I'll get an upgrade soon.

Tunes for Tuesday: Omen, by Disclosure, featuring Sam Smith

Finally made it back to the gym after being away for two weeks (cold followed by monster ear infection). I'm turning the tables on my workouts and now focusing on longer bouts of cardio with strength training at the end. I downloaded the new Disclosure album right before I went to the gym and it kept me on the bike, switching between levels 5 and 10 (!) for 30 minutes. I credit my imaginary gay husband Sam Smith for that. I really like the chill vibe of the entire album, which also features Miguel, Lorde, the Weeknd and a bunch of other singers.

Tunes for Tuesday: Cake By the Ocean, by DNCE

Do you know how miserable it is to pull together Thanksgiving dinner when you've been sick for a week and just found out you have an ear infection? I need to go grocery shopping and start cooking but all I want to do is sleep and eat soup. I need to make a pumpkin pie but instead here's Cake By the Ocean, from DNCE, which I think looks like "dunce" but they probably mean "dance" and, hey, it's Joe Jonas!
