Upbeat Workout Playlist

Man, you guys have some killer music recommendations! Thank you all so much for weighing in with some of your top choices.

Upbeat Workout Playlist

This afternoon I finally sat down, purchased some newbies, and created a brand spankin-new workout playlist.


It’s a mix of new songs, songs from my last playlist, and some super old school songs (thank you, e@thisnotedlife, for reminding me about Ice Cube’s “You Can Do It” – totally an old favorite that makes my boo-tay wanna move!)

I also just HAD to include Train’s new(?) song, “Marry Me” because I think it’s just so incredibly sweet. And ironically enough, I actually listened to it while finishing up the last of my revamping of the Wedding page (finally – WOO!).

The last page to get done was the Decorations & Details page, which includes lots of fun info so be sure to check it out. Technically, I could still revamp the Honeymoon page, so if there’s any extra info you’d like to see added there, just let me know. I can be persuaded to make some edits. Winking smile



Tonight’s dinner just goes to show you that a mediocre dinner the first time around doesn’t mean you can’t make a killer meal with its leftovers!

Despite the fact that last night’s pork chops were pretty “meh,” I was still able to salvage the leftover marinated peaches, which were incorporated into a killer salad.

In the mix:

  • Chopped romaine
  • Leftover peaches and onions, diced
  • Dried cranberries
  • Cucumbers
  • Goat cheese
  • Slivered almonds
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Chia seeds

Once this creation got a little drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette, it was good to go and by far, a heck of a lot better the second time around! YUM!

Time to go do some relaxing with the boys…g’night everyone!

Question for the Evening:

What meals/foods/dishes do you enjoy better the second time around?

    YES! I haven’t even charged my ipod because my music is so out-dated. I’ve been jamming to Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls and old Britney…throwing in some Old Dirty Bastard and Biggie because I wanted to bring sexy back but even got sick of the old/new playlist. Everything current I totally played out so I needed some new jams!

    Great playlist!! I thought I’d also add–for some “ole skool” faves: “push it” by salt n’ pepa; and Madonna’s “Like a Prayer”

    This playlist looks awesome and i have been DYING for some new music! My gym time has been seriously slacking lately and I think a lot of it has to do with how bored I am with my music right now. Can’t wait to try to out on a good long run :)
