Music is gonna get ya

I love music. I love the way it makes me feel. It inspires emotion. Raises me up or brings me down. At home, I almost always have music on. I dance. I sing.

Of course, I don't just listen at home. I have Lucille loaded with music. I take her with me everywhere so I can get my fix any time, any place. She is ALWAYS with me at the gym. When I get going on the treadmill, the music becomes a part of me. I can feel the beat moving through my body and I find myself stepping to the rhythm.

It makes me wish I could sing at the gym. Top of my lungs, fist pumping singing. I want to shout out my exuberance. Throw my arms into the air like Rocky at the top of the stairs.

Maybe my gym should have soundproof rooms.

I think I'm going to put that in the suggestion box.

  1. I hear ya. I LOVE music and how it makes me feel. And I do sing. Loudly. Off key. And sometimes even an inappropriate times. It's who I am, what can I do?

  2. This post calls for another one where you post about your workout playlist -- I need all the motivation to start thinking about working out I can get!

    Soundproof workout rooms would be nice, but would they have windows? You know, so other worker outers could see you singing even if they couldn't hear you?

  3. There is a girl at our gym that just sings out loud while she is on the treadmill. At first I thought she was crazy and then later decided I may be jealous! Whatever the case, power to her for just doing whatever the h*ll she pleases.

  4. Cracking up at Judith's comment! LOL!

    Sing it girl - live life to the fullest!

    I prefer total silence over music. It didn't use to be that way. It took having two children to change it. Ha!

  6. I've been known to break out a move or so at the gym. No one cares, right? Please tell me that no one cares.

  7. I feel the same way as you do about music. It makes me feel good to listen to it and I would have it on all the time if I could. What is your favorite music and do you listen to different types of music? The gym should have a special room for people who want to sing out. That would be fun!

  9. lol. You know, I don't listen to music anymore unless I'm in the car. Sometimes in the house but not so much. Weird, I always had something on like 20 yrs ago.

  10. Sometimes I have to restrain myself from breaking out in dance while running and listening to my iPod.I'm sure it would look strange to those driving by me on the road. :)
