My Playlist

I LOVE to workout.  That's an understatement.  And if you know me you know that to be true.  Last year I started working out HARD.  I started lifting weights and doing HIIT.  I ran two half marathons and did the Wasatch Back Ragnar.  I tried things I never thought possible and I accomplished them.  I have learned to love Burpees they work every part of your body some you didn't even know you had.  If you don't know about the torture that is a burpee here's a demo.

Best part of a workout for me though is the music.  It is imperative that I have good music you know the kind that makes you want to get up and shake your booty.  And sometimes the kind of music that I like to call "angry" music.  So I decided to put together a list of my favorite workout songs and also ask for some suggestions. My top ten workout songs..... Drumroll please.

10.  Rosa Parks....OutKast
9.  We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.....Taylor Swift (I only like this song because it annoys all the ladies in my workout group)
8.  Some Nights.... Fun
7.  Rest of My Life.....Ludacris
6.  Clique....Kayne West, Jay-Z & Big Sean (angry music)
5.  Talk that Talk......Rihanna (angry music)
4.  Sweat...... Snoop Dogg vs. David Guetta (because well I sweat A.LOT.)
3.  It's Time....Imagine Dragons (enjoyed best at a very loud volume)
2.  We Are Young.....Fun
1.  Call Me Maybe.... Carly Rae Jepsen

I know crazy variety.  Any suggestions?  What do you listen to when you work out?

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot .  It's a gift I know. I digress. Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you. All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great. You will need: 3 Tablespoons Baking Soda 8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide 1 drop dish soap Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longe

A Quick Poll

So I have been reading a LOT lately about how dark backgrounds with light text are difficult to read for many blog readers.  So I changed my blog.  I am not sure that I LOVE it but if you would leave a comment and let me know if this is a little friendlier to your eyes I would appreciate the feedback.  Thanks! Don't worry about offending me I can take corrective criticism I am asking for it here.  Post edit: So I took your advice and lightened up the grey.  I tried white background and it just wasn't as calming to me.  So hope you all like my new look.  Thanks for the input I appreciate it!
