It hit me this evening that I really have missed everyone here in blog land! I've been doing my best to keep up with reading and commenting on YOUR blogs, but I've missed interacting with you here, too! Luckily, this post came to me rather quickly.
I've been doing well with going to the gym after work. I manage to get there at least three times a week, which is a HUGE improvement from....well....never. (Or the one time a week that I stayed after school for an hour for Zumba, which isn't all year long.) I'll be honest, that I'm pretty much sick of the music I have on my iPod right now (and I have approximately 800+ songs)*. I did make a specific playlist of upbeat and/or motivating songs to listen to at the gym.
*I am so sick of my music, that when I got an offer from Goodreads.com to get a free download of Eat, Pray, Love with a 30-day free trial of Audible, I took the chance. I was skeptical about listening to a book, but I'm LOVING it! I started listening on my way to work on Friday, and I was actually sad when I got to work. That's saying a lot because I hate being in the car. So the fact that I wanted to keep driving around really says something about this...
I have 78 songs on my Workout playlist. I won't list them all for you because that would be boring. I WILL, however, put my playlist on shuffle and share the first 10 songs I get...
1. "Hot Blooded" by Foreigner
2. "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry
3. "Genie in a Bottle" by Christina Aguilera
4. "Barracuda" by Pat Benetar
5. "The Edge of Glory" by Lady Gaga
6. "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey
7. "Hey Mickey" by Toni Basil
8. "My Life Would Suck Without You" by Kelly Clarkson
9. "Good Girl" by Carrie Underwood
10. "Sweet Like Cola" by Lou Bega
As a bonus, I also have "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor (from Rocky). It's strange how I suddenly pick up speed on the elliptical when that comes on...haha
Do you have a workout playlist? What songs motivates you? Anything you're really loving that I should download!?
