Spinning Playlist – January 31, 2013

Happy Thursday everyone! Apologies to my regular followers for being not so present this week – I’ve been dealing with some “stuff” the last two weeks, and it’s left me with a case of writer’s block (I blame all the other thoughts and insecurities coursing through my head). But, as we all know, the best way to deal with our downs is to get to the gym – and for me, there is no better mood boost than getting in front of an awesome class.

So, here’s tonight’s playlist, straight off the bike…

Have a great weekend – and to my football fans, enjoy the Super Bowl! Who do we think is going to win? I couldn’t even take a guess … my loyalty is strictly to Clemson (and overall college) football, so while I’ll watch any game, the outcome of this one doesn’t bring me any bragging rights. Have fun on Super Bowl Sunday … but be aware of those tailgate treats! Remember those beer, pizza and wing calories add up fast (and don’t be afraid of the carrots and celery).
