Workout Music

When I work out at the gym I like to take my iPhone so I can put in my ear buds and rock out to the music. Running on the treadmill is so much easier when you have upbeat  music to listen to!  Here is some of the tunes I have on my play list:

Wham: Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go
George Michael - I want your sex
The Whispers - Rock Steady (which also happens to be one of my favorite songs to dance to)
Nickleback - Rockstar
Nickleback - This Afternoon
Nelly - Just a Dream
Madona - Material Girl
Lady Gaga - Telephone
Lady Gaga - Just Dance
Lady Gaga - BoysBoysBoys
Katy Perry - California Girls
Katy Perry - I Kissed a Girl
Enrique Iglesias - I Like It
Don Henley - All She Wants to Do is Dance
Daughtry - Life After You
Black Eyed Peas - Let's Get it Started
Van Morrison - Brown Eyed Girl (another favorite song to dance to)

Now I want to know what is on your workout play list because I need to add some new songs to mine!!  Please leave your favorites in the comments section below!

  6. Hi cindy,you've given me the courage to buy a brand new bike and my husband and I go bike riding once maybe twice a day. Loving it. I'll keep an eye on your blog

  7. I am not over 50 yet but I think I could learn a thing or two from your sassy self. I have admired you on your other blog for awhile so this is fun to see....I love to workout to Usher's "More" and pretty much any Pitbull song! Great blog.

  8. would be great if you could add a subscribe by email so I could get your posts by email? I don't see an icon for that???

  9. Hi look great. I'm turning 63 on Sept. 23rd and I've been dieting for over a year now trying to lose 30 lbs. of unwanted blubber. Succeeded losing 15 so far. Today I decided to start doing Zumba to tone my abs. I've been having low back pain from gardening chores and I think part of the problem is lack of core strength. You are inspiring me. I don't want to be a fat old lady. I'll enjoy this blog as much as the other one. Your home is beautiful.

  10. Beyonc'e Put a ring on it! works, I love Katy Perry to walk to,

  11. Dear Cindy I found your first blog a while ago now.You are such a creative person and your talents inspired us to try a bit of DIY.
    Now this blog. I am delighted!
    I have always had to watch my weight. I don't eat junk, but, I don't exercise. This last year I have gained 10lbs. I know why... because I have just been sitting. I sit at work all day and I sit at home in the evenings. I have been wanting to ride a bike, but, can you believe this, I am scared to. I want to get on the treadmill, but I really can't be bothered...until now. I love music, once I hear it, I really want to move.
    You have inspired me !
    p.s. I know this is stupid, but how do you put songs on an iPod? I was given one but I don't know how to use it.

  12. Linda, here are some instructions on how to put music on your iPod:

  13. Goody Two Shoes - Adam Ant
    Music - Madonna
    The Fear - Lily Allen
    Flap Your Wings - Nelly
    New York Groove - Ace Freely

  14. Quite an arrangement...Madonna, Rhianna, Brittney, The Peas, U2, & crazy weight training is Eminem, and Snoop Dog. Traditional Indian for Vinyasa.

  15. Where's your Kelly Clarkson!? Miss Independent, Since You've Been Gone, etc....she's so fun to workout to! :)
