music monday // volume 1.

workout motivation

At the start of the New Year, I became the person I thought I would never be. New year, new you, new me, blah blah. To get myself back on track in January, I joined the gym. I became a New Years resolutioner. The saddest part of it all is that I didn’t even realize what I was doing until it was done and was brought up in conversation. I had become like the rest of the world, starting up a gym membership with the mark of a new year. From the moment of realization of my actions, I made a promise to myself to keep with it, and not become the person that the hard core gym goers make fun of. You know, the people who start back up at the gym in the the new year and then about a month after, fall down the rabbit hole until next January.

With all my goals in mind, I have successfully made it past the one month mark since I signed up to the gym, with the idea of being a New Years Resolutioner always in the back of my head, I am motivated to stick to it and to prove this stereotype wrong.

Now that I’ve gotten used to the routine of working on my fitness, I can look forward to the hour or so I will spend kicking my butt and over perspiring. I will admit that it is not always easy. I sometimes feel like I have to throw myself down my apartment stairs and it takes a lot of pep talks from my inner cheerleader. But today I am going to share with you the secret to what makes it all so much easier.

I like to believe that my workout success is based 10% on girl power and 90% on the music I’m blasting into my ears, silencing any distraction around me. If each time I stepped on that treadmill and didn’t have new tunes to rock out to, I would constantly be thinking about how I hate treadmills, how I wish the sun was shinning and how excited I am to go home and eat popcorn, while laying horizontal on my couch. Instead, since I have these great tunes, I am thinking about how much of a beast I currently am, and crank up the speed on my treadmill.

Since today marks a new week, meaning back to the gym for me, and probably many of you as well, I will be sharing with my current top 5 tracks to enjoy your workout. You can thank me later 😉


  1. Hula Hoop – OMI
  2. Bang my Head – David Guetta ft. Sia & Fetty Wap
  3. Sorry (Latino Remix) – Justine Bieber ft. J Balvin

    4. I bet my Life- Imagine Dragons (Alex Adair Remix)

    Looking forward to hear all about how these tunes helped you work on your fitness. Have a great Monday!
