Do You Understand The Words Coming Out Of My Mouth?

Country stars are crushin’ hard on Little Big Town, with artists like Kacey Musgraves, Reba McEntire, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton and more standing up for their friends and their single “Girl Crush.”
The song, written by popular country songwriters Lori McKenna, Hillary Lindsey and Liz Rose, tells the story of a woman who is jealous of her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend, but its title and some of its lyrics, along with the fact that LBT’s female members take the lead on vocals, have listeners (incorrectly) assuming that the tune discusses a lesbian relationship and demanding that radio stations stop playing it.
“That’s just shocking to me, the close-mindedness of that, when that’s just not what the song was about,” Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild says. “But what if it were? It’s just a greater issue of listening to a song for what it is.”
Although the backlash isn’t as widespread as it originally seemed, artists like Dierks Bentley are standing up for the song, no matter its meaning.
“When I heard that song, I never even thought about it being about a girl crush or a lesbian [romance],” he says. “And when I thought about it that way, I liked it even more.”
Country stars are using their social media power to spread the word about supporting the four-member group, sharing photos of themselves donning red, white and black hats printed with the song’s title. Over the weekend, McEntire posted a picture of herself wearing her hat, along with the caption, “Tipping my hat to my friends Little Big Town for their single #girlcrush!”

I got excited this week when I saw that we got new music from Kacey Musgraves! Same Trailer Different Park was by far one of my favorite albums when it came out.

It’s call Biscuits and she say that it sets the table perfect for the new album! If your liking the song like I am, let her know on her twitter @KaceyMusgraves

Shin splints, sore groin, tight hamstrings….

So I did my day 2 run today, so for that part of my goal I’m right on track! i even ran the same distance as Monday but did it 2 minutes faster! However… I feel like I worked my kegs out hard in the gym! Everything hurts! I’m hoping streatching before and after will help and I can get my run in on Friday and then rest the weekend, that was my goal, but right now its hard to walk!

Jan 7

Back at it… Again….

So I started running, yeah again. Hopefully this time I will stick with it! I have 11 months and 6 days to get sexy for the wedding!
So I ran about a mile yesterday. Not bad since I havent ran in a few months! It was cold and it sucked! But I powered through. I’m not really setting a weight goal yet, just know I need to get back down to at least 15% body fat, which is a pretty hefty goal.
Trying to find a running app that works with my Samsung Gear S watch so that I dont have to run with my phone. The Nike app comes with it but dosent seem to work when its not near the phone. I also need to get a pair of wireless ear buds to use with it. Any suggestions?
Well Ill let you know how I fair with tomorrows run!
