Workout Playlist to Jumpstart My Fitness

I’m back on the fitness track! I started in January with “A New Me” but had to abandon it only weeks later due to a recurring knee injury. Well, I’m healed, got new AWESOME shoes (reebok easytone) that let me walk, dance, whatever for hours without my knee or hip screaming at me! I even got a balance ball chair for the office so while I’m typing this, I’m toning up. :)

My soon to be team captain and I at TypeA 2010Why am I trying to get in shape? Well Conference season is upon us! in less than 2 weeks I’ll be flying to Asheville, NC for Type A Parent Conference. After that is EVO conference is Park City, Utah (which I’m bummed about missing) in July. Just a month later is BlogHer, in sunny San Diego, in August. Whew! I’m tired just thinking of this.

But that’s not all folks… If you act now, you can also add SheStreams to the list in September! Just a few days before that one is Bloggy Boot Camp in Denver. Buy those conference tickets and I’ll show you the Time to Play Holiday Showcase!

So I want to look my best. There will be lots of brands, PR folk, friends, but most importantly. FOOD! I like to pig out at these conferences and I can’t if I’m still “squishy”. I won’t be able to stay up late and giggle with the girls if I’m all sluggish from junk food.

To help kick this off, TypeAParent is having a Just Dance 2 Party hosted by Ubisoft. I’m on #teamleticia of the #ubitypea and ready to BRING IT! I’m practicing with the kids but man, I’m sweating like a pig in July, errrr June!

In addition to Just Dance 2 for the wii, I’m also doing a bit of zumba. There is an awesome wii game for that too. But above all that movin and groovin I’m doing some old fashioned walking. Our neighborhood makes a 2 mile loop with steep hills and some flat areas that makes it perfect for jogging or power walking. I made a playlist of songs to listen to while I’m pushing the jogging stroller and keeping my heart rate up! Here they are, in no particular order… (notice my love for Pitbull ~ Muy Caliente!)

    I’ll have to check these songs out in iTunes. I usually just watch a movie on my iPod Touch while I run. And don’t listen to anything when I’m using my hellish Jillian Michaels DVDs. You should get some of those. Ouch!!

      Thanks! I was going to add older songs like “let’s hear it for the boy” and “good vibrations” but I wanted something current and fresh. :)

    Lord knows I, too, need a jumpstart. Not sure it’s in the form of a playlist. But I’ll try it. Sadly, your playlist just made it even more abundantly clear of our difference in age as I’ve never heard of pitbull (as a musician) and Lil Jon. But I trust you.

    • Emily says

      Trust me. Pitbull = HAWT and sexy music! ;) I’ve been a fan of all types of music but hip/hop, rap, top 40, has to be my fave.

    Thanks so much for the playlist! That is exactly what I needed. I need some new tunes to get me motivated. Can’t wait to check them out. Bought an elliptical and treadmill this weekend (both used at garage sales and goodwill) so that there aren’t any excuses about finding time with the kids home during the summer. I wish buying them was all there was to it, but maybe some great music will help! ;)

    I like Zumba – there is a class on the corner 3x a week and walking is always good although I don’t do it much. Gardening and house cleaning burn a few calories plus get the bonus of getting stuff done too.

      Thanks! I say squishy ’cause I’m not overweight, just, well, squishy! LOL Need to tone up but 3 kids later and past the 30 yr mark, it’s not as easy as it used to be!
