Now...That's What I Call A MP3 Player

When I do my cardio workout, I put my headphones on and put the volume on just loud enough to drown out the other people around me and then I read whatever book I'm engrossed in.  It's when I'm doing my weight training that I get bored listening to the radio.  I don't want to listen to radio personalities talk or commercials during songs.  I want music that is going to motivate me.

I've had my MP3 player for over a year now.  I bought it on Black Friday in 2009.  I've always meant to download music onto it, but that task sounds complicated to me.  So I never did. 

Last night, my sister and I stopped at Target and I saw two CD's that spoke to me.  "Now That's What I Call The 1990's" and "Now That's What I Call Party Hits!"  The first is a throw-back to high school.  Songs include "You Get What You Give" by the New Radicals, "Bitch" by Meredith Brooks, "If It Makes You Happy" by Cheryl Crow" and many more.  My favorite is "No Rain" by Blind Melon....I loved that video of the chubby girl dressed as a bumblebee.  The second CD is more current....favorites include "Milkshake" by Kelis, "Don't Cha" by The Pussycat Dolls, "Get Ur Freak On" by Missy Elliott and "Ain't No Other Man" by Christina Aguilera.

After an hour of going in circles on the computer, they are finally on my MP3 player.  So if you see me jamming and strutting on the treadmill, feel free to fist pump along with me!
