Spring 2014 Workout Playlist

Good Afternoon! How’s the Hump Day goin for ya?

Mine’s been rockin’ thanks to a brand new upbeat playlist I have been listening to on repeat for a few days now.

(But we’ll get to that in just a minute!)

As promised earlier, here is a look into some more of my eats today…

Lunch came around 1 p.m. with a bright veggie salad!

Baby spinach, chopped cucumbers, red, yellow, and green peppers, tomatoes, and black olives drizzled in a white Pineapple balsamic vinegar.

I totally meant to add feta cheese, but forgot about it until I was almost done eating. Dang.

For some staying power, I also enjoyed a quinoa burger topped in salsa and shredded cheese.

(I remembered it this time! Yum.)

While cleaning up, I felt like the sunshine outside was calling to me, so I took Roadie for a twenty minute walk around the neighborhood. He loved it and even stopped to roll around in the grass for a bit!

It might not be bright and springy looking, but hey, grass is grass. He had a ball and I loved getting in some fresh air with him.

Spring 2014 Running + Workout Playlist

For those of you who are new to the blog, you should know that I am quite the music lover. Pretty much any genre, any decade, or anything I can dance or chill out to, I am totally about. I always stalk iTunes, local radio stations, and Pandora hits to bookmark songs and create new playlists to listen to.

Every season, I roll out a new batch of fun songs and create a workout and running playlist I continuously listen to. Because who doesn’t get pumped up to break a sweat with a fresh playlist to take to the gym?

Winter 2014 Chill Music Playlist

I have been in a very musical mood lately. So into it that I buy a ridiculous amount of music on iTunes, make playlists, and become addicted to each one for a few days. I just keep playing it over and over.

It might actually be a problem.

Before you get the assumption, I don’t, in fact, think I am some kind of DJ or something. I just happen to be a huge fan of almost any type of music. Every time I post a playlist, I get the gist that you enjoy them, so I figured I would throw something different out there today and see how it goes.

This one was put together specifically for me to “chill out” to. Whether I need to take some time to relax and unwind from the day, something to calm me down during traffic, or even music to fall asleep to, these are the batch of songs that have been doing the trick!

I know it may not be as relevant as my workout playlists… but I went out on a limb and welcome your feedback (yay or nay on these types of playlists) in the comments section below.

Winter 2014 Chill Music (Slow Down) Playlist

Before I get to them, I wanted to let you all in on how I bunch my songs together. It’s so easy. I pick a Pandora station I like (this one was James Morrison) and I thumbs up and thumbs down my song preferences. If I really like it, I bookmark it.

After a month or so, I take a look at my bookmarks and decide if I want to buy any of them. What you see is what I purchased!

Now go on and give ‘em a listen…

1. Story of My Life – One Direction

2. I Won’t (iTunes Session) – Colbie Caillat

3. Golden Train – Justin Nozuka

4. If I Lose Myself (Acoustic) – OneRepublic (this version is so, so great!)

5. Use Somebody (Bonus Track) – Tyrone Wells (still can’t get over this song!)

6. Lego House – Ed Sheeran

7. Wake Me Up Avicii – Madilyn Bailey (<- umm… love her covers!)

8. Near to You – A Fine Frenzy

9. What I Know – Parachute

10. Sad – Maroon 5

11. I Want Crazy (Encore) – Hunter Hayes (just skip to the :50 mark)

12. Baby I Want You – Amos Lee

13. I Won’t Let You Go – James Morrison

14. Pretty Brown Eyes – Cody Simpson

15. Say Something (The X Factor USA Performance) – Alex & Sierra

16. Give Me One Reason – Tyrone Wells ft. Jason Reeves

17. I Lived – OneRepublic

18. Shake It Out – Florence + The Machine

In some weird way, having different types of playlists ready to go really helps me through daily projects and tasks. When I’m blogging, I like something upbeat and fun like Glee Cast Radio. At night I like Ed Sheeran. Before a workout, I always turn to Today’s Hits to pump me up. Yay Pandora!

As much as I would love to continue to ramble on, I need to put on a workout playlist and knock out a good one before the afternoon gets away from me. Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!

Winter 2013-14 Workout Playlist

Hello, hello! Okay… for the last week or so I have been promising a jump back into health and fitness focused posts back on the blog and today I am here to deliver.

What you all might not realize is that I actually do tend to stay active, even when I don’t write about it. I don’t always mention it because who really wants to hear “I went to Fitness Pilates again.” Ha. Not even me. In fact, I feel slightly embarrassed to enter it in daily mile these days. I’m waiting for someone to say “change it up, sister!”

Don’t worry guys, I got this. With a little inspiration from a new workout playlist and incentive to test out a new interval stopwatch for HIIT and Tabata workouts, I plan to get back into posting new and fun workouts.

Before we get too crazy, let’s start out with that playlist. I don’t know about you, but loading a fresh batch of upbeat music onto my phone always gets me going in the gym. Or on the running trails, whatever. Here’s what has been pumping me up this season!

Fall 2013 Workout Playlist

It’s the weekend! I hope yours is starting out on a wonderful note.

Ours is already going by faster than you can say “Welcome back to Florida!” Scott and I have spent our trip home visiting as many sights and people as we can squeeze in before our departure back home early Sunday morning.

Oh, and did I mention Sunday is a game day… AND Scott’s 40th Birthday? (Yup, 40.) I’m sure that both of us will be looking forward to slowing things down Monday after it is all said and done. Until then, no breathing is necessary!

I plan to put together a post of my favorite Central Florida to-do’s next week including restaurants, parks, and places to have fun in our area. Since I want to focus on spending time with friends and family while we are here, I am waiting to cover anything Florida until then and am instead sharing a new playlist with you today!

Here is a list of my favorite upbeat running and workout music that has been getting me going lately.

Fall 2013 Running + Workout Playlist

I haven’t heard #8 down south yet, so I’m guessing releasing Eminem early might be a Detroit thing.

Sorry to make it so short today. We’re off to an early breakfast, a pop in at a practice, lunch with friends, then a wedding later on this afternoon. Promise to catch you all up on the festivities next week. Enjoy the weekend!
