Happy Monday! I’m looking forward to this week because it’s supposed to warm up after all the snow and cold we had last week. I’m so ready for some spring weather around here. Speaking of spring, I’m so glad we now get an extra hour of sun in the evenings. It makes such a big difference, at least here in Calgary where the lack of sunlight can be a pretty big downer in the middle of the winter. The hour time difference always throws me off for a few days, but by the end of the week I’ll be back on schedule.

Today I’m sharing a 45 minute workout playlist. There’s definitely some older songs on this one (California Love, Shook, and Just Dance), but this playlist still gets me motivated during workouts. There’s just something about some songs that gets me going.

45 Minute Workout Playlist

A couple weeks ago I came across Shawn Desman on Spotify. He’s a Canadian artist who was big in the early 2000’s here in Canada. I’m not sure if he was ever popular in the US, but whenever i hear one of his songs I instantly think of going out with my university friends for a night of dancing. Isn’t it crazy how some songs can brings up memories? Outkast was also big around the same time, and whenever I hear Hey Ya it reminds me of one particular girls night out.

As far as Give It To Me goes, I like just about every Timbaland song I’ve heard, so it’s hard to go wrong with this one. For while every song Timbaland was involved it – even if he wasn’t performing it – was crazy popular. I guess he has the magic touch. I’m pretty sure I could create an entire playlist with just Timbaland songs on it and I’d be happy.

As usual, you can find all of my workout playlists here if you’re looking for some more music.

What’s your current favorite song?
