Happy Thursday! It's hard to believe that the week is almost over already. Of course the long weekend for Canada Day definitely helped since it was only a 4 day work week. Long weekends always throw off my days for the rest of week – I'm always thinking it's a day later than it actually is. Does that happen to anyone else?
Today I'm sharing a 60 minute workout playlist. Music is such a huge motivator for me while I'm at the gym, so I'm constantly making new playlists. Sometimes (most of the time) I need a little extra motivation to stay on the treadmill or elliptical for the entire 45 minutes I have planned, and for me music makes it much more easier to do. I love hearing what other people are listening to so I like to share my playlists just in case you need some music ideas while you're at the gym too.
I ended up decided to add a few songs from the 80's to this playlist (Rhythm Nation my Janet Jackson and Straight Up by Paula Abdul). Side note: if you haven't seen Joseph Gordon-Levitt lip syncing Rhythm Nation go watch it right now here. It's awesome and it's totally worth the 4 or 5 minutes it takes to watch. I also included a few older songs like Hung Up by Madonna, Nelly Furtado's Say It Right, and Buttons by The Pussycat Dolls. Right now I'm really liking Maroon 5's Cold and Sail by Awolnation, so I knew that I had to add those songs to the playlist too. Cold is on the radio a lot here, and I always end up turning it up whenever it comes on.
For more workout playlist ideas of mine, you can find them here.
What's your current favorite song to get you motivated and pumped to workout at the gym?
