Hi, my name is Nanci and I love Bon Jovi. I love 80’s Bon Jovi in all their hair band glory, I love 90’s Bon Jovi, and I love the Bon Jovi of 2000’s as their music bounces back and forth between rock and country-ish. I just love Bon Jovi.
I have a lot of Bon Jovi in my iTunes, so it’s pretty much a guarantee I’ll listen to them during a run. I have quite a range of music from them. One of my favorite songs to listen to is from 7 or 8 years ago. I also love this video because let’s face it, Jon Bon Jovi’s hair is fabulous and he smiles that great smile of his….
I’ll probably have this song in my head all day now… It’s a great one.
What is your favorite band or singer?
Last Sunday was a busy day for the kiddos in the family. Our nephew Cooper was having a birthday party (he turned 4!!) and our niece Autumn was having her second dance recital. Unfortunately, they were both at the same time… So, my mom and I went up and spent some time with Cooper and Cole before the party so we could give him our gifts. It actually worked out well because we got to spend some one-on-one time with Cooper and Cole. There was much laughter and silliness while we were there. Hubby and I got Cooper a cool Superman flying toy and that was a hit. Especially when it hit the ceiling or one of them tried to catch it. Silly boys. Hard to believe Cooper is 4 now! He’s getting to be such a big boy. And Cole, who will be 3 in November, is the squeakiest little boy ever, not to mention the spitting image of my brother….
Cooper was pretty excited to get his gifts…
That afternoon, my mom and I met Nick and Jenna at Ruth Eckerd Hall for Autumn’s dance recital. The dance school that she goes to, Suncoast Academy of Dance, goes all out for this yearly recital. There are 2 acts, each with 30 or so songs / dances. The little ones are so adorable… The older kids are very talented and their hard work shows. This was my niece’s second year doing the recital and what a difference a year makes. Last year she was very timid and shy. They danced to Walking On Sunshine and it was so cute! This year she was very excited and all smiles on stage and even waved at us. She never ceases to amaze me and I love sharing proud aunt moments!
**I borrowed several of these recital pictures from Jenna…..
Because I am human, I have been eating AWFUL this week. Just awful. No one forced me to eat the things I have… I chose to. No one twisted my arm to do so… I chose to. And now I have to own it.
Six months into the year of weight loss and this week I have reverted back to my old eating habits this week. I have not prepared this week, and I have been slacking on the snacking.
I *know* what I need to do, and I need to do it. Stress cannot lead me to eat so bad. I should NOT go through a drive-thru just because I am stressed. That is what the old me did. The new me cannot do that.
Because I am human, I will pick up from here – today – and move forward. I know what I need to do to be successful. Twenty pounds down does not mean I can eat what I want all the time. I will splurge on occasion and live my life. I will go to a baseball game and enjoy what I want. Or out to dinner and indulge in a treat. But I do not need to eat so carelessly for lunch several days a week when I am stressed and when things aren’t going right. Eating French fries will not solve problems.
I have also not tracked in two days. TWO DAYS. There goes my June #goalgetter2013 goal. I need to snap out of this and fast. Again, not tracking will not solve problems. They are still there regardless. Today, I will get back to tracking. Today is a new day.
Because I am human, this will be a lesson. I know I am stronger than this. I know what I need to do and I can do it. I have to do it. I’ve come to far and I still have a ways to go. I cannot fail. I will not fail.
Are you an emotional eater? What sets you off on eating? How do you snap out of it?
My love for this song goes back to my very first half marathon and I have loved it ever since. Just hearing it takes me back to that day and how I felt like I could accomplish anything. It’s a great song and it is still high on my half marathon playlist. If I’m listening to music when I run, it’s almost a guarantee I’ll listen to this song.
Every one has that song… That one that got them through a race or challenge, and every time you hear it after, you think about that day. I know you have a song like that!
It’s a great song, right? I have a couple Flo Rida songs on my playlist but this is my favorite one. It has a great beat, it’s catchy, and I love running to it. Ultimately, that’s the reason we choose songs for our playlists, right? It keeps us moving!
What is one song that really keeps you moving?
