Throw Dirt On Me... And Grow A Wild Flower

Happy Thursday everyone!  I hope y'all are having a great day.  I know I am... for one reason... it's FREE WEEZY DAY!!!  I don't know if I've ever touched on my musical preference on the blog before.  Or maybe I have, I'm not really sure.  But the people who really know me, know that I love rap/hip hop.  I've loved it since a friend's brother gave me a ride and he was blaring DMX the whole way.  I was hooked from then on out, and that had to be 1998 or so.  While the rest of my friends were discovering Indie bands and Lilith Fair, I was discovering Diddy, (back when he was Puffy,) Bone Thugs, Jay Z and so on.  When my college revamped its gym to having personal TVs, I would be rocking out on the treadmill to the BET countdown and getting really weird looks from the girl next to me.  I still to this day don't quite know another girl who has the same taste as I do in music.  (Except Kailey, who had the same idea as I did today!)  I usually bond more with guys over this.  Anyway, why am I telling you this?  Because ever since I saw him in the Destiny's Child "Soldier" video, Lil Wayne has been my all time favorite rapper.  He was arrested last year on a craptastic weapons charge and was finally released today!!

That's my man right there.  The one who pushes me through my workouts, wakes me up when I'm falling asleep at my desk, the one who produces lines that have become this blog post's title and previous facebook status':

"I don't think you're beautiful, I think you're beyond it."
"Confidence is a stain they can't wipe off."
"Just breathe baby, God's got a blessing to spare." 

That last one I am seriously considering tattooing on my wrist.

In other news, I am proud to say that I have successfully completed Jillian DVD's every day so far this week.  My goal was to do them every day but my legs are crying for a break today.  No biggie, I'll just work out Saturday when I was planning to break instead.  Monday and Tuesday were No More Trouble Zones, which I'm slowly getting better at.  I still can't do the whole thing straight through but I'm getting there.  Yesterday I tried the Shred that I borrowed from a friend.  I'm glad I borrowed it, because I didn't love it.  I was unable to make it through without taking a break so there is no doubt that it's a good workout, but it wasn't long enough for me.  I wasn't sweating like crazy or red in the face or feeling awesome afterwards.  I think it's a great choice for some people, but not for me.  I think I'm going to go with Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism.  I've heard that alternating that with NMTZ makes for excellent results.  We will see!  For tonight though, I will be chilling with her

And her
And eating some of this

And think about what he will release next :)

Okay, because I am old and totally out of touch with you young whippersnappers, I had no idea what all the kids shirts at school that said, "Free Weezy" meant. I thought it had something to do with the Jeffersons.

Yep, I'm a dumb ass.

No shame in liking a little hip hop! =)

Love this! My hubs is always surprised when an old rap song comes on the radio and I bust out all the lyrics. I was quite a little gangster back in the day! My tastes have since varied a bit...
Love your blog!
