Hi friends! 
I get asked a lot to do health and fitness posts and to share my favorite work out songs.. I have been meaning to do it for so long and just keep forgetting!! So please keep emailing requests for posts, I promise I will do them! 🙂 (eventually)
Okay so I feel a little weird giving advice or tips or what not about working out because its not like I am in great shape, but I do love working out so I will share anyways. So I have recently been getting into dub step and techno! I don’t necessarily like to listen to them when I am just hanging out but when I am running or doing any form of cardio they are AMAZING! Seriously. I came home from the gym yesterday like a giddy school girl raving to my roommates about how much I love dub step haha because I had the most amazing work out all thanks to my amazing playlist! Music totally motivates me to work harder.
Here are my top 10 favorite songs I listen to when working out:
(if you dont like the first two songs, listen to them when doing cardio and I promise you’ll change your mind!)
**Also buy the clean version on iTunes of all these unless you want an earful of belligerent-ness
1. “I Can’t Stop” by Doctor P and Flux Pavillion
2. “Cinema” by Benny Benassi
3. “T.H.E.” by Will.i.am
4. “React” by Erick Sermon Feat. Redman
5. “Da Rockwilder” by Method Man and Redman OR the remix by Lil’ Kim Feat. Rah Digga
6. “Faded” by Tyga Feat. Lil Wayne
7. “How We Do It Over Here” by Busta Rhymes Feat. Missy Elliot
8. “Nothin'” by N.O.R.E. 
9. “Lights” by Ellie Goulding (Dubstep Remix)
10. “Digital Girl” by Drake Feat. Jamie Foxx
While talking about working out.. I think its funny when girls use the excuse, “I don’t have time”. You always have time, you’re just too lazy to make time. If you have time to get on facebook or pinterest or watch a show, you have time to go to the gym and do 30 minutes of cardio or at least do sit ups and push ups while you watch bachelor. Plus, you can read a book for school or study while doing cardio AND I have recently been doing weights while doing cardio to make my work outs go by faster.
Also, I am kind of sick of girls who pin all of these pictures of girls they want to look like and then say, “I don’t have to be thin to be beautiful” or “It doesn’t matter what my body looks like, my husband loves me no matter what”
You’re right. You are beautiful just the way you are and your husband will love you if you gain 30 pounds. But if you want to look like those girls you keep pinning, I suggest getting your butt to the gym and doing something about it. 

***And boys…. if you expect us to have Victorias Secret model bodies then you better have a six pack and some awesomely strong arms to go along with those high hopes.
And please…. stop working out just your top half. You look ridiculous.

  3. Thanks for this post. I seriously need to get back to the gym. Being pregnant makes me seriously lazy. I have to try these songs! Oh and I hate chicken leg guys too, it’s gross.

  4. SO I have been procrastinating getting into a tight shape for the summer but thanks to this post, I feel overly motivated… I may possibly run laps around my work right now to get a jump start. I love the guys who only work out the top half! ha ha tell it how it is.

    Thank you for the post!

  5. Jackie!! Okay yeah those two are hard to find on iTunes and they don’t have clean versions on iTunes of them either so I just searched them on youtube and then converted it from youtube into and mp3! if you dont know how to do that just google “youtube to mp3 converter” and then youll copy and paste the link into the converter! Its super easy I do it whenever songs aren’t on iTunes! and ah I know I have been wanting to get spotify!!! I need to get that asap!!! haha got it from my mama is def on my work out playlist too! 🙂 xoxo

  6. Okay I LOVE workout playlists so thank you for this. Problem though, I can’t find Da Rockwilder by Lil Kim, I can only find it by Method Man & Redman… What lil kim album is it from? And I reccommend Spotify to everyone! The only songs not on Spotify that were on this list were React & Da Rockwilder! It’s $10 a month and I use it on my phone, Brandons, and our computer. It’s like the entire iTunes library at your fingertips. I love it, thanks for the playlist girl!

    Oh and I love “I got it from my mama” by will.i.am haha 🙂
