Help me out...

Updates:
Sam has been pretty sick. We spent the last week or so running back and forth to doctors, ER, calling 911... The whole bit. Sam is on another antibiotic and he seems to be doing somewhat better. He is a little mushy today but no fever. We are just trying to keep Sam comfortable and happy and hopefully get a few therapy sessions in this week.

Scott and I were able to get away for one night last Thursday for my B-day. We shopped, got massages, ate, and best of all slept!

My class is over. The girls did pretty well. I think I scared them with their pop quiz. Almost everyone Aced the final. I really had fun teaching. I already received e-mails and phone calls from some of the girls saying how much they miss me already. I think they are just buttering me up before I figure out their final grade. I am going to teach the same class again for the March semester. It should be a bit easier this time since most of the work is done.

OK so I need a little assistance... Today is actually my birthday and I decided that for the 31st year of my life I am going to start doing more for me. This morning I got up and jumped on the treadmill. It felt really good to exercise. This was the first time in over 2 years that I am doing something good for my body and my mind. The thing is I was only able to do a speed walk for about 1/2 an hour. My usual cardio regimen was a 10 min warm-up, 30-40min run, 10 min. cool down. So I need help with a music mix that can get me empowered and motivated enough to get to my goal.

I need you all out their in cyber space to suggest songs for my work-out mix.
So for the 10 min warm up I need some up-beat happy music to get me in the mood. For the run I need some hard core, booty smacking, bring it on tunes. And for the cool down something mellow to bring me to a good place so I can continue with my day. Let's see who comes through...

For the music you want to run to, there is nothing that can pump you up more than Rage Against the Machine. If I wasn't so fat and lazy, I would probably listen to that to work out.
