I’m letting Jason Mraz sit in today

I’ve always been a lover of music and totally enjoy being able to get some wisdom out of what I’m listening to.  The new CD by Jason Mraz has a bunch of positive music on it, but one song in particular always seems to ground me and re-remind me of what I should be focusing on.  It’s called, “Living in the Moment” and is full of a bunch of great lyrics….but it’s also a very catch song.

I’m letting Jason provide the Make it Happen inspiration today and have included some of my favorite lines from this song.  It hasn’t been released as a single or video yet, but I have included a youtube video at the bottom of this post that plays the song and lays down all the lyrics….so be sure to click play and use it as the soundtrack for your week.

I know not all of you agree with me on the riding with music idea, but if you do ride with your iPod be sure to add this one to your playlist.

Living in the Moment (selected lyrics)

by Jason Mraz

I will not waste my days
Making up all kinds of ways
To worry about all the things
That will not happen to me

I’m letting myself off the hook for things I’ve done
I let my past go past
And now I’m having more fun
I’m letting go of the thoughts
That do not make me strong
And I believe this way can be the same for everyone

So I just let go of what I know I don’t know
And I know I’ll only do this by
Living in the moment
Living our life
Easy and breezy
With peace in my mind
With peace in my heart
Peace in my soul
Wherever I’m going, I’m already home
Living in the moment

    Good music. I’ve never heard him before. I’ll have to add this song to my workout playlist.

    Oh, and I used my earbuds this morning, and I got my fastest mile in a month by listening to “Eye of the Tiger.” It was fantastic. :D

    I played the video lyrics while reading this post and I think that’s a great song. Not only are the lyrics positive but the music is upbeat and got me going as well. Thanks for brightening up my Monday.

    I like the music of Jason Mraz but haven’t heard this song. Thanks for mentioning it to me and I will surely go look for it. I could use some positive music to start my week.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
