I don’t think I could workout without music.  While I can sometimes enjoy a little quiet, I get a little distracted when it’s quiet for too long.  My mind wanders, I start thinking of all the other things I should be doing, and then my body follows my mind and I’m off to the next thing.

I’m always looking for a great set of earbuds to use that will keep me connected to my music for that very reason.  If I’m spending my entire workout fiddling with them, refitting them, putting them back in, adjusting the plug into my phone – well, that wandering thing is going to kick in and my workout will be cut short.

Every year I make resolutions along with the rest of the world.  But this year I’m less about making a resolution and more about putting balance into my life.  I have a lot of posts I plan to share with you this year on taking a lifestyle approach to a “new you”, everything from getting better sleep and making smarter food choices to how to get more active (without necessarily doing that “e” word that some of us dread).
