Extreme Makeover Me Edition~Seriously!!

{ae filkins}

Be sure to visit Amber's Blog she has Mr. Linky set up to share more stories!

There are people there more motivational than me.
I gained~3 FREAKIN pounds!

I know that its my fault, I haven't put the effort into exercise these past two weeks. I didn't do an EMME post last week. My aunt that is like a mother to me is moving to a town 2 hours away from me!! YAY! I say YAY b/c she has been living 20 hours away for the last 10 years and I can't wait to have her closer. Last week I was gone for a few days to help her find a place to live. I ate horribly while I was traveling and the hours spent in the car were hard on my back issues. Bad enough that I have scheduled the MRI for tomorrow to find the actual problem, hopefully leading to a way to make the pain end!! (enough whining for now)
Amber's question of the week is:
Share some of the music that you work out to.
What helps you rock it!?
What gets your blood pumpin?
My favorite new workout song is
Black-Eyed Peas- BOOM BOOM POW
I am jammin' just thinking about that song. LOVE IT!!
My playlist is made up of dance/old school rap!
Justin Timberlake
Danity Kane
Kanye West
Lady GaGa
Pussycat Dolls
Taylor Swift
Rascal Flatts
Toby Keith
Garth Brooks
Kenny Chesney
Will Smith
If I could get my workouts up to make through my entire playlist then I might be able to tip the scales in the right direction!
Pray that my MRI will bring some answers!!!


  1. Traveling and eating out definitely throws a wrench into the plans EVERY time, no? and dealing with pain on top of that - I do hope your MRI brings answers. Just look at every day as a new day to start & be healthy. Glad you're back to EMME!

  2. It is so hard when you aren't at home...well it's hard at home too, but worse when you're away! Hope that the MRI will be helpful!!! Good luck!


  3. It's hard enough to stay on track at home, let alone when you're travelling. I hope the MRI leads you to solving your back problems. Once that's resolved or at least manageable, you'll be able to get back on track. Try not to get discouraged although I know it's really hard.

    Much love from NJ,

  4. Thanks for stopping by my little blog :)

    Another awesome benefit to is definately burner of calories! I don't feel bad for having M&Ms and Pizza every once in a while.

    I still haven't heard BOOM BOOM POW. I'll
    have to check it out. Hope the MRI goes well.

  5. Traveling is the WORST for trying to stick to a healthy diet! I hope you are able to get some help for your back issues.

    I'm definitely going to check out some of your song suggestions...alsways lookin for new beats to get me motivated!

    Good luck...this week will be better!

  6. Ugh. Injuries/pain is the worst for me as far as derailing my work-outs. I often push through anyway and make it worse. I hope your MRI goes well.

  7. It is hard when you go away. Just get yourself back on track and your body will adjust quickly back!! I hope your MRI is a godd one :)

  8. Wow, that's quite a song list, girl! I love getting new ideas for music to huff and puff to. Don't be too hard on yourself, we're definitely allowed to have one of those weeks every once in awhile ;)

  9. Good Luck with your MRI! I hope you find the answers to your issues.

    Traveling is always hard for me....I drink more soda and eat more crap. I am vowing to drink only water (and coffee) on our trip in a couple weeks!

    Have a great day!


  10. It's hard to stay focused with things all out of wack.. Good luck with your MRI and get back into exercise when you can. Family and life comes first!

  11. Good playlist! And so exciting about your Aunt moving closer to you. That will be so fun!

    Keep up the good work!


  12. What a cute blog...So glad I found it tonight. Loved the post.
    I am a new blogger and still finding my away around.

    I have a great giveaway for April.
    You have to scan down to the "Card Box" post to see what it looks like...but it is a $75.00 value....
    It was so popular that I decided to give one away each month...For every comment you leave during the month, that puts you in the drawing that many times.....Hope you will visit soon

  13. Forgive me for not posting sooner!! I read this the other day and just realized that I never commented. And I just realized why. I went on a mission to listen to that 'Boom boom POW' song b/c I keep hearing about it. I'm also just realizing that although I found it, I never listened to it. I swear I have ADD. lol

  14. See?? I still didn't really comment!! Let us know the results of the MRI. Hope you feel better soon!
