Not-So-Guilty Pleasures

What do you like to do when you have "Me Time"?
Do you watch TV?
Listen to music?
All of the Above?

Well, lately I've been working out. It's been a lot of fun actually because it's when I get to watch one of my favorite shows in peace. I just walk/jog on the treadmill for about 45 minutes and that's about when the show ends. Perfect. It makes me laugh like crazy and that's what the other people at the gym probably think of me - crazy. Since I have those ear phones in, I can't hear if I'm laughing out loud or not. Do you think I care anyway? Not really.

I really don't feel guilty at all because I'm doing lots of cardio (which is a healthy thing to do). Now if I was sitting at home eating Bon Bons and watching TV, I would feel pretty yuck about that. I'd think, "Shouldn't I be doing something productive instead of just sitting here watching junk?". So the exercise thing is the absolute best thing in the world to me right now.

Now, I know this is just a phase and I'll get sick of it after a while, but for now, I'll just go with it.

Oh yeah, the other thing that is really cool is the Pandora application on my iphone. Every song is a total surprise, and great. I love that.

I suppose all of this is just another example of how I like to escape reality for just awhile.

I love to workout, especially while listening to my playlist on my ipod. I even made a workout mix of all my fave upbeat songs. I also love to watch Regis and Kelly while I workout. She is so cute and they always have good guests. Yes, it is "my time" and I love it. I am in a great mood for the rest of the day. I try to do it three or four times a week if I can. No guilt at all!!! I am a better mom and a hotter wife because of it!

iPods? iPhones? I guess having high-speed internet on my home computer just doesn't earn me the same amount of tech cred it used to!!!

Maybe we should add an "iMom" label for our techie articles, girls! I'm not sure I'd have much to add to that category, but it sounds like several of you would!
