What's on your workout playlist?

Mornin'.  I'm on a slight uptick on the scale.  I'm not too happy about it because I'm doing everything I'm supposed to.  Eating slower (thanks for your responses on my last post).  Stayin' within my calories.  Workin' out.  Measuring food.  WHAT GIVES??  The scale has me up 3 POUNDS!!!  I told myself to only weigh on Fridays because I would fluctuate on a daily basis, so I weighed yesterday, was up one, weighed again this mornin' and up two more.  I just need to hang in there...

Yesterday, my family and I went to the park and the boys played some football while I got in some exercise.  I walked about 2 miles is 40 minutes (I plan on eventually being able to run).  I have no idea if that's good time but it's more exercise than I've done in years and my legs are feelin' it today.  But I felt great.  When we got back me and my youngest son did about 20 minutes of Just Dance 2 on Wii.  So I feel pretty good about the exercise I got in yesterday.  I love to listen to music and it helps me make my walks more exciting.  My favorite is anything Katy Perry or Black Eyed Peas...I LOVE THEM and any time I hear either of those two it makes me want to dance.  So that's basically what my playlist consists of with a few others in the mix.  I mostly listen to modern and classic rock but I need music that'll pump me up for workouts, that's why I'm kinna lost on what else to add.  Here's a sample of what I listen to while I'm walkin':

  • Teenage Dream - Katy Perry
  • You and I - Lady Gaga
  • California Gurls - KP
  • The Time - BEP
  • Imma Be - BEP
  • Meet me halfway - BEP
  • Miss You - Rolling Stones
  • Can't Get No Satisfaction - RS
  • Sail - Awolnation
  • Last Friday Night - DP
  • Alone - Heart
When I'm out and about I can always come up with stuff I need to download, but when I sit down at my computer to do it, I'm at a loss...

So what's on your playlist? 

(Sorry I haven't posted any recipes lately, my diet consists of smushed chicken and veggies right now, nothing exciting...)


  1. Are you counting your calories or food logging? I find it reallly helps when I'm seeing gains on the scale. I use Just a suggestion.

    And I think 20 minutes per mile is pretty great, considering you're two weeks post-op. I probably couldn't have walked a mile so quickly at that time! It'll get better by leaps and bounds. :)

    I don't have any workout playlist ideas, sadly... I read during my workouts.

  2. I use MFP religiously. I track everything that goes in my mouth.

    Did you get my message about the book you're reading? What's the first one in the series? I like fantasy/paranormal too.

  3. If you are doing what you are suppose to, the weight will come off. It is tough but try to be patient.

  4. This is my current jam list

    Hush - KRS-One
    Satellite - Rise Against
    Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely)- Pink
    Try For Thunder - Chamberlain
    We All Sing Along - The Bouncing Souls
    The Art Of Partying -- Municipal Waste
    Wrong Way Kids - Bad Religion
    Faster - Matt Nathanson
    Holy Diver - Dio
    Two Souls - Christian Kjellvander

  5. I second what Robyn will happen.

  6. I'm loving LMFAO right now to get moving during workouts.
