My New Best Friend

It was pure delight when the FedEx man finally arrived at work yesterday. I had been waiting all morning for the delivery and kept checking the tracking number to see if my package had arrived yet. I was shocked at 1:45pm when I learned my package had been delivered and signed for at 1:30pm, but nobody bothered to bring me my new best friend. Didn't they know that I had been patiently (okay, not so much perhaps) waiting and waiting for this all morning!? After finally hunting down my special delivery, it was nothing but pure smiles as I discovered my new best friend:

Now, in all seriousness, my hubby is still my best friend and always will be, but this is my new WORKOUT best friend. You see, on Monday I started this women's fitness challenge and without some music to groove to, the six times a week cardio sessions and thrice weekly strength training sessions are going to become BORING, causing me to quit long before the 24 week program is over.

Well, yesterday I gave it a whirl and let me tell you, this little thing is magic! It made the hour and a half at the gym fly by and I actually can't wait to get to the gym today so I can listen to more of my favorite tunes.

Oh, when I said this "little" thing, I wasn't joking. The whole thing weighs less than 0.3 ounces and is only 1" x 1.5" big with a little clip that attaches to my pants or shirt. But, don't let its size fool you...this thing can hold up to 250 songs. Plus, it comes in one of my favorite colors for clothes...teal! All this for the bargain price of less than $50. We sure have come a long way from the days of walkmans, or carrying big boom boxes on your shoulder for that matter!

Thanks hubs for my new best friend!! Don't worry, though, I'll always love you more. Now you'll just have a more fit wifey!

  1. I know the feeling of loving an IPOd--I have a nano, and it makes my long 6 and 9 mile runs seem to go by quickly! Enjoy listening to all your music!!
