running legsYou know the hardest part about going to the gym? Going to the gym. It’s amazing all the tiny tasks that I’ve neglected doing up until it’s time to make my way to the treadmill. Oh that stack of magazines I’ve yet to read? They must be sorted through before I could possibly go to the gym. All that paper has gotta be a fire hazard. I probably should clean out the fridge too.

However, once I’m actually at the gym or have just completed a thorough sweat session, I’m more than happy I went. Even happier when my pants aren’t sausage wrappers.

Conveniently, this playlist doubles as a fantastic workout playlist… and everyone knows that looking good is the best revenge.



P.S. I do not in any way, shape, or form, condone violence (except against pillows).  There are far more clever ways to take out your frustrations.
