Walking In Memphis

Are there certain songs that come on the radio and just make you feel good? For me it's Walking in Memphis, Hotel California, American Pie, Walking on Broken Glass...just to name a few =). Whenever one of these songs come on, it just transports me to another place in time. Music is so important to me and basically have a soundtrack playing in my head at all times. What song makes you feel happy? or just stirs up certain emotions

Eats and Workouts
Ayer for Lunch I had a Spinach Wrap with Fried Shrimp, Marinated Artichoke Hearts, Mushrooms, and a little bit of Marinara Sauce

I skipped my afternoon workout but did do laundry and DID carry a 23 pound bag (yup I weighed it) up and down 4 flights of stairs =)

On Sunday, I had some fruit left over from the brunch and was about to toss them out but my mom suggested that I should freeze them and just use them in a smoothie. Seriously, why didn't I think of that? I already freeze fruit for smoothies lol. Anyways I used the fruit ayer to make a smoothie for din din. The smoothie consisted of Banana, Strawberries, Pineapple, Apples, and Vanilla LMM. It made so much that I have another serving for din din tonight, do you think it will taste fine?

After dinner I snacked on Quaker Mini Delights AND some Count Chocula l0l

This morning I did 30 Day Shred Level 2, 1 Mile of Start Walking, and 10 minutes of Yoga Stretches for my back and burned 417 Calories.

For Breakfast I had a Mini Frittata, with 2% Cheddar Cheese, Bacon, and Potato and Granny Smith Apple with PB and my usual Coffee

Have a great day!



  1. My mood determines what songs put a smile on my face.

    Was that 23# bag full of laundry???

  2. I think th smoothie sounds great! I love a good fruit and yogurt smoothie.

    I like walking in Memphis, but at first I thought you were going to say "Walking on Broken Glass", which is one of my favorites! It always puts me in a good mood :)

  3. Pamper, Yup 23lbs of laundry lol

    Gina, HA I am actually watching Walking on Broken Glass on youtube!!! I am in a "mood" right now and trying to snap out of it...Hoping Annie can put me in better spirits!

  4. Anything early 90s puts me in a better mood! I should dig some of that stuff out today!

    Your smoothie should be good- maybe add a little more ice and blend again to refresh!

  5. It works again! Haha I feel so behind. Your smoothie looks great! I'm guessing it will be okay today? Don't hold me to that though haha.

  6. Mmm, artichoke hearts! I love music too. I can't think of a particular song, but I love 80's music, especially the Pop-Hair metal station on!

  7. I am such a music junkie!! I relate my memories totally through music. My hubby laughs but I can hear a song and tell him my exact age and what was going on in my life at the time it was released. So funny ... I love Eric Clapton's "Change the World"(my wedding song), anything by James Taylor, oh gosh so many ......

  8. Nothing like apples and peanut butter!

  9. I love songs that get me going! There are so many that it's hard to name just one!

  10. just saying hi...I have so many songs that make me feel good, actually lite fm plays lots of those kind of songs :)

    so hey...did you ever show how you made those Mini Frittata's? I missed it. looks good.

  11. definitely Walking in Memphis!!

    And that wrap looks delicious, it is making me hungry!

  12. Hope your back is feeling better! Mmmm...smoothie looks good - wish I could only eat that for dinner - I'd be back out in the fridge right after - grrrr.
    Songs?! Yes, songs totally take me to certain times and memories in my life for sure :)...Hmmm, there's alot - alot by Coldplay (clocks and the scientist)...but they're usually sad/depressing lol!!!
    So 'pick me up' and make me feel better...old-school Madonna haha - yep "Like a Virgin" or something else equally lame :)
    Also Ben Harper stuff.

  13. "me and mia" by ted leo and the pharmacists always gets me up (it's actually about eating disorders, and used to have a wholeeee lot more meaning in my life, but it's still a great song)

  14. Walking in Memphis puts me in a good mood too! I think its because I'm from TN.

  15. I love walking in memphis! But i like the country version haha!

  16. I'm from Philly haha, otherwise I def. wouldn't be hating
