work it out

“an active mind cannot exist in an inactive body”

after a mostly sunny, fun and food filled weekend in la, my body is begging for some healthy activity…also known as “gym time.”
today (and the rest of the week) i’m planning on logging an hour of cardio over my lunch time. for me, a successful workout cannot exist without an awesome workout mix.  fierce beats, catchy lyrics and sweet melodies – these songs are my biggest motivator as i push through a few miles on the treadmill.
so for those workout mavens who are looking for a new workout mix to spice up your gym time, below is a list of my recent favorites.

the awesome workout mix
“bad romance”
lady gaga
“enola gay”
“flashing lights”
kanye west

“groovejet” (if this ain’t love)
spiller ft. sophie ellis baxter

“i gotta feeling”
black eyed peas

“lights out”

“imma be”
black eyed peas

“murder on the dancefloor”
sophie ellis baxter
the strokes
“run this town”
jay-z, rihanna, kanye west

“so what”
“such great heights”
the postal service
lady gaga

“vibrant thing”
