Eat Your Heart Out Jennifer Beals

I finally got my new stationary bike and it's awesome! If you remember, my old one was apparently designed for someone born a handful of decades before myself so I exchanged it for a snazzy new one that I can actullly adjust the resistance on and I. LOVE IT. Jason was so nice to put it together for me yesterday so I took it for a test run just now for about 30 minutes. It's so nice to change things up from my normal step aerobics routine because as much as the dvds I work out to kick my butt, I think I was about to poke Kathy Smith's right eye out if I had to listen to her voice for another successive day. Riding the bike also cemented my desire for an iPod even more since I don't really want to hop off to change the music playing on the computer if a song comes on that I don't want to hear. For example, I had forgotten that I had most of Sasha's dance recital music in my music library and halfway through my bike ride the theme from the movie "Flashdance" came on and the cheesiness of me on the bike pedaling along to "What a feelin', You can really have it all..." was just a little bit too much to take.


  1. Oh boy, Kathy Smith can get old QUICK. I have her yoga/pilates tape and there's a part where you are fluttering your arms and legs as if you are swimming. And she says, "little swimmies, there you go."
    Every time she says "little swimmies" I want to yank her ponytail until she screams.
    So, yeah. I support your desire to get an mp3 player. It's made my exercise routine about 1000x better! :)

  2. Whoops! I was thinking of Denise Austin when I posted. Kathy Smith I can't see so much saying "little swimmies." Still, any exercise instructor in large quantities can provoke annoyance!
