Welcome to Tunes For Tuesday!
Today’s Tunes For Tuesday pick is a song that I can vividly remember hearing for the first time. Jay and I were in Barnes & Noble reading a few books on a lazy weekend day and The Postal Service’s “Sleeping In” was playing overhead. We both looked at each other and intently listened to the song the whole way through and then promptly walked over and bought the CD. It was that good – and still is.
The song may be mellow but it’s powerful. This is also a great running song. I’m sad that I never got the chance to see the band live but I found this clip from last year’s Coachella. It looks like the performance puts to rest the idea that an electronic band performance can be boring. Hope you like it too!
What’s your best “I remember when I first heard this song” memory?
I planned on being able to tell you all of the details about the very amazing Evolution Fitness Now Conference and TheFitExpo that I attended on Saturday but instead it’s going to have to wait because I went to THE GRAMMY AWARDS last night!
At the Grammy’s with my friend Josie.
If we’re friends on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, this isn’t news to you at all. I might have blown up the internet a little bit with my posts (and gave spoilers to the West Coast – sorry). I thought it was a great show and I was thrilled to have attended this amazing event due to an angelic friend who gifted these tickets to me (and my lovely friend Josie – since Jay couldn’t attend).
For me, the highlights of the evening included: Read more
Welcome to Friday’s Featured Female!
This weekly series features inspirational stories from admirable women. IMHO, it’s always good to be reminded of how strength, determination, hard work, heart and ingenuity can impact the quality of one’s life and I’m proud that these women will allow me to share their stories here.
Today’s #FFF is Christine Yu@LoveLifeSurf. Christine and I have gotten to know one another in two very different and impactful environments that allowed us both to open new and exciting chapters in our lives. We were social media newbies together at the first NYC Fitness Magazine Meet & Tweet and since then Christine has gone on to become an insightful writer (on her blog and publications like espnW), a fabulous photographer (her yoga selfies are brave and gorgeous) and newly minted yoga instructor! I’m so proud to call this fabulous lady my friend.
Soooo have you met Christine? Read more
While going back to school when I was 30 wasn’t my idea of fun, I have always believed that education and learning is a lifelong process and to that end 2014 might just be the year of the conference. To make sure that my future nutrition private practice and blog can provide the most up to date developments in health and wellness, I’m going to be attending 7 conferences (yes 7!!!) in the next few months. I wanted to share with you what I think are the top health, fitness and nutrition conferences for bloggers (and anyone else interested in health and wellness) in 2014.
Welcome to Tunes For Tuesday!
Today’s pick is Nelly Furtado’s, “Powerless (Say What You Want)”. If you were looking for ethereal Nelly with “I’m Like A Bird” or slutty Nelly with “Promiscuous Girl”, this is not your day.
“Powerless (Say What You Want)” is one of my power songs while I run. It’s about fighting back against whatever you interpret as adversity. I’ll admit that only through researching the song lyrics that I discovered that I’ve been perpetuating serious curse word infested mondegreen with this song (if you don’t know what a mondegreen is click the link and you’ll laugh).
I’m disappointed that the lyrics aren’t in fact, “Go get a f@#$%^&* job!” but maybe the people I pass by while I run (and inadvertently sing) won’t give me dirty looks anymore.
Give it a listen and let me know if you hear the curse laden lyrics too:
What’s your best mondegreen? You know you have one…or three.
