Workout Playlist

I don’t know about you but one of the keys to a great workout for me is the playlist. To save myself some moolah and I’ve been using Pandora’s workout playlists for my workouts. Occasionally though, I’ll update my Itunes collection with some workout worthy jams.  Here is what I’m listening to on repeat right now…

1. We Found Love (feat. Calvin Harris) – Rihanna

2. Turn Me On (feat. Nicki Minaj) – David Guetta

3. The Time (Dirty Bit) – The Black Eyed Peas

4. Love You Like A Love Song – Selena Gomez & the Scene

5. How Far Do You Wanna Go? – Gloriana

6. Grow a Pear – Ke$ha

7. Good Feeling – Flo Rida

8. Glad You Came – The Wanted

9. Drive By – Train

10. Memories – David Guetta

11. Barbara Streisand – Duck Sauce

12. Princess of China – Coldplay & Rihanna

13. Somebody That I Used to Know (feat. Kimbra) – Goyte (*Joe Caraoca remix)

Clearly, RiRi and Mr. Guetta make frequent appearances on my playlists but you can’t beat the beat, so to speak! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday! I’m hoping to take a walk to Harvard Square, soak up some vitamin D and sip on an afternoon latte!

Anyone watching the Oscars tonight? I’m crossing my fingers for the cast of The Help. Loved both the book & the movie!

A Week In Review


Is it just me or do four-day work weeks go by a lot slower than the average five-day work week?  Despite the 9-5 hours (more like 7:30 – 5:30) moving as slow as molasses, I’ve had a great week. I accomplished the longest run in my training plan (my half marathon training plan will be another post, promise!) under my set goal time (a whopping 5 miles in 48 minutes, if you’d like to know), caught up with long-lost girlfriends, and plans for my trip to Chicago began to take shape!

{obviously, not me}

I’m now looking forward to a weekend full of cocktail hours with friends here, shopping here, and getting in a fun and new {to me} workout with my girlfriends here.

{bring it on}

Wish me luck!
