Weight loss Wednesday: My play list

2/08/2012 11:20:00 AM Ashley 2 Comments

Working put isn't always fun. A good portion of the time I will go to the gym and just feel...bleh. Just because I'm at the gym it doesn't mean that I have the drive to work out. That's when music comes into play.

There's a good chance that I would not work out the way that I do if I couldn't pop on my head phones. Music drives me...pushing me to start and to keep going.

With music being my motivator, my play list is beyond important. A slow song can totally screw with my pace, while a fast song can push me to work harder.

I've spent awhile adding, trimming down and perfecting my workout mix. And because it's such an important part of my workout routine, I thought I'd share my must have songs. Now keep in mind that this is not my whole list, as that would mean having to list 130+ songs. This is just a list of the songs that are always on my playlist, no matter how many times I change the list around.

Workout playlist

  2. Hey Ashley! I wanted to tell you that I appreciate so much your weight loss Wednesday posts. I was just thinking about your blog while I was at the gym last week and was thinking that I really ought to let you know just how encouraging it is to me! Seeing your numbers and your candidness about working out help me stay motivated to continue on my own journey. I didn't want to be a silent observer but instead say, "You got it girl!" I hope you continue to have success in all you do!
