Its time to get a move on

I finally did it. I went to the gym at lunch today. I ran three laps around the track, then headed over to the treadmill for a little more impact on the booty. I found my way to the machines and yes, squeezed in some abs!

I went with some co-workers and stayed pretty much to myself. That's how I like it. I put in my headphones and escape to my music. I sometimes forget how much I hate to work out. It is so hard to get started. After two weeks of this, I will be totally hooked! I have a some-what addictive personality so its only natural for this obsession to occur. I just need it to happen now!

I find it pretty fascinating that people react to music so differently. My songs that give me that extra push completely don't work with others. Just to give you some info:

My Playlist:

- Chop Me Up - Justin Timberlake & Timbaland
- Rock the Boat - Aaliyah
- Shy Boy - Jordin Sparks
- Piece of Me - Britney Spears

- Hot & Cold - Katy Perry
- Disturbia - Rihanna
- Bittersweet Symphony - REMIXES! I love love love techno! I can seriously dance my ass off to techno sans alcohol (that's how much I love this music!)
- The Way I Are - Timbaland

Honestly, the entire Timbaland CD - Shock Value - is pretty amazing

- Love Stoned - Justin Timberlake <-- the cool thing about this one is the slow cool down part at the end of the song..perfect for cardio!!!

Cool Down
- Electrical Storm - U2
- Somewhere Over the Rainbow - Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

So some may wonder what in the hell is going on with this playlist. In reality, there are a gazillion songs on my mp3 player and I don't really need to list everything. You get the gist. I think pop rock is the best for working out. Rap is preferred for lifting weights and techno is best for cardio.

I just can't see myself getting motivated to work my butt off to Coldplay or Norah Jones (which are a favorite of mine).

Wish me luck and I'll keep you posted on the progress.
