Today's the first day I have hit the Maplewoods gym for the longest time, and in anticipation of it I created a bangin' playlist because everyone who knows my gym habits (literally no one) knows that the right music will have me pounding away on the treadmill like I'm battling the devil himself. For this purpose I love songs that have an awesome beat to it, preferably belted out by famous celebrities, are terribly popular pop-culture, and may sound slightly autotuned. It works wonders as work-out and feel-good music.
There's a mix of mostly fast and some slow, just to make things a bit more interesting.
I really dislike running outside or in general painful exercises outdoors that aren't fun. The exception being PE games in school because that involves a lot of screaming and laughing, which is fun. Otherwise, I like to sweat in aircon, contrary to what Em says.
The last time I regularly gymmed was back in 2016, I think right before and probably after the O's period. In 2017, I could count the number of times I went to the gym on one hand.
So gyming today felt really GOOD. I was so into it for some reason- maybe, definitely it's the fabulous playlist- but I felt like I could run for ages, and I didn't even get tired until the last part, when I was sprinting. The endorphins have been dormant for quite a while now, so they had a field day.
Every drop of sweat just makes me want to go further, push harder, and keep on going. And I think I will, hopefully this isn't the last the gym will see of me.

If you get everything you want the minute you want it, what's the point of living?
