For Whom The Bells Toll

I was behind schedule this morning and had to rush off so I simply didn't have a chance to post until now! On the plus side of busy I got in a good workout and was able to maintain a great eating pattern throughout the day.

In other news, I am posting the last in my series of personal playlists for the C25K that I created from my own collection of tunes and a free no-music podcast. This means that I am nearing the end of the program! My husband (I can't believe he stuck with it this whole time) and I will be starting on the final week tomorrow. I am really proud of how far we have come!

I will definitely make sure that I post my thoughts on the program as a whole when I have completed it, but for now you can simply enjoy laughing openly at my ever odd musical tastes. If I had to pick just one song from this set to suggest for your own listening pleasure, it would be the Family Force 5 version of Carols of the Bells (yes, I am aware that it is not even remotely close to Christmas). Not only does it make me laugh every time I hear it - just because of the principle - but it actually has a really great beat that remakes my favourite holiday melody into something unexpectedly current which I am anticipating will be excellent for jogging to. Enjoy!
