Music Monday: The Workout Edition

Hey guys!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic end to the holiday weekend! And for all my international friends out there, don’t be too jealous…I have to work today too!

So, I’ve been getting all kinds of itches lately and I feel like today is a good day to get my scratch on! I’ve been wanting to get a music post up for weeks now. Since I’ve been using (and yes, I mean that in the addiction sense) Spotify to fill all my musical needs lately, I’ve been whipping up playlists left and right! Along with my golden child, “Wine O’clock”, I have to say I’ve put together a pretty rocking workout playlist…which unfortunately, has yet to get a more clever/witty name, BUT it has been pumping me up both in and OUT of the gym! To further prove it’s awesomeness, how about it was the motivation behind something pretty freaking MARVELOUS this weekend?

Running Shoes


Oh yeah, baby! And, are you ready for this? I did just over TWO AND A HALF MILES in THIRTY MINUTES! Bam! Booyah! Hells yeah! 😉

And how about it was a total spur-of-the-moment thing? After I dropped off the recycling, I was planning to go to the park for a leisurely stroll, but all of a sudden, I just got this urge to run. So I took a little detour and wound up in one of my favorite neighborhoods to run in!

What we WON’T talk about is how I jumped back in my car after the run and drove ALL the streets I had just run (even the ones I doubled back on) just to see what my mileage was! Nope, instead of talking about my current level of craziness, how about we talk about how crazy eclectic this mix is?

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again…my taste in music is a bit all over the place. When it comes to everyday listening,I tend to lean more towards indie and alternative rock when, but when I’m working out (or RUNNING!), it’s all about the beat. So yeah, there’s a little Trey Songz, a dash of Hillary Duff, some Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the Trapt? Well, that song ALWAYS gets a spot on my workout playlists Sometimes you just gotta rage. 😉

None of these are in any particular order other than when I added them. Since I don’t pay for the premium service (um, why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?), whenever I listen to my playlists on my phone, they automatically shuffle and I’m cool with that. The surprise just adds to the fun!

And just because I can’t seem to get enough of this song…and I swear there’s NO WAY you can sit still in your chair while listening to it, I’ve gotta give a little shout out (with jazz hands) to my girl, Fergie…since you know, we go way back! 😉

Are there any songs that HAVE to be on your workout playlist?

What song can you not get enough of lately?
