Name That Tune!

I can’t do much of anything without music, and working out is no exception. I wanted to share my current workout playlist. It is ever-evolving and I have no doubt that some of it will make you scratch your head and say, “HOW does she get motivated by THAT?” Most people I know workout to hardcore techno/rock . . . (ya know, high energy stuff), but this list works for me.

What are some of your favorite workout songs? Feel free to share in the comments section!

Without further ado, here’s my cheesy list:

  1. The Cave – Mumford and Sons
  2. Dixieland Delight – Alabama
  3. Drive South – Suzy Boggus
  4. Float On – Modest Mouse
  5. Mercy Mercy Me – Robert Palmer
  6. God Is With Us Now – Gateway Worship
  7. Life’s Highway – Steve Wariner
  8. Mexico – James Taylor
  9. Jesus Is My Help – Hezekiah Walker
  10. Hearts on Fire – Rocky IV Soundtrack

Everyday . . . just do something. — If you’re going through your day and realize that just don’t have time to do your usual workout routine, don’t beat yourself up, and DON’T give up entirely. Even if it’s a 20-minute run or 15 minutes on the floor doing abdominal exercises, don’t let a day pass when you don’t devote part of your day — even what may feel like an insignificant portion — to fitness.

Last night, my P90X plyometrics workout (which is usually about an hour) was cut short by 22 minutes. That’s okay! I did as much as I could before I had to hop in the shower to get cleaned up for worship band rehearsal. No biggie . . . I just pushed extra hard for that 38 minutes, and you know what? I didn’t feel like I failed at all.
