My very good friend Holly left me a voicemail today.
“Just wanted to make sure you feel great and have that 30 minutes of fitness in your day. I miss you hugely!”
She’s a personal trainer and she is checking up on me. I know, right? She’s awesome.
I must admit, working from home due to COVID has brought out the workaholic in me and while I have been trying to get a workout in during the day, it’s been a hit and miss.
Anyway, I was doing the dishes tonight while my hubby was glued to CNN and the depressing news of the day. I really didn’t want to hear any more disturbing news about how some people are skipping quarantine and still going out. Come on, people!!!! Ugh.
So, I grabbed my headphones and the first song that came up was Maroon 5 “Moves Like Jagger.” If you haven’t heard it, check it out on YouTube. At any rate, I never thought cleaning up after dinner would be so enjoyable.
Before I knew it, Taylor Swift’s “I Forgot That You Existed” came next and I found myself all alone in my living room…
I closed my eyes….
…and just like that, I was awkwardly dancing to Ed Sheeran’s new song “Put It All On Me”! Three and a half minutes of pure and unadulterated happiness! If you have the time to check out the video, you would understand!
Hey, no one’s here. Even if I dance like Elaine Benes in Seinfeld, who cares! No judging.
Post Malone –“Wow”…I found that it had a good beat for squats…and calf raises.
Ed Sheeran…”Beautiful People”…I caught the words…” surrounded but still alone.” I made a mental note to think more deeply about this… it resonated.
Billie Eilish, more Taylor Swift, more Ed Sheeran…(check out his new song “I Don’t Want Your Money”).
The last song on my playlist was Lizzo’s “Good as Hell”. I love that song!
At any rate, I somehow managed to squeeze in 30 minutes of fitness tonight. It wasn’t that difficult! Maybe tomorrow I will try to catch one of Holly’s virtual fitness classes on Instagram (@hgoldsmithjones). Check her out…she does so much in 30 minutes!
If not, I could always dance like no one was watching!
Let me know if you have any songs I should add to my playlist! (Most of my songs on my playlist are from Olivia 🙂
Stay safe and have a great rest of the week, everyone!
