10 Tunes to get you moving!

I’m one of those people who cannot exercise without music.  I am always looking for new motivational melodies and I thought in the meantime, to help get you motivated this Monday, I would give you a little list to get started with.

Here are 10 songs from my workout playlist that help get me through my running and strength training sessions!

  1. Pon de Replay – Rihanna
  2. Intergalactic – Beastie Boys
  3. Sexy and I Know It – LMFAO
  4. Scream and Shout – Will.i.am, Britney Spears
  5. Get Right – Jennifer Lopez
  6. Chelsea Dagger – The Fratellis
  7. Salute Your Salution – The Raconteurs
  8. Ain’t No Other Man – Christina Aguilera
  9. I’m Shakin’ – Jack White
  10. Animal – Neon Trees

Here’s a link to this weeks playlist on Spotify:

I’ll give you more next week.  In the meantime… send me your favorite workout tunes!

My taste in music



No, seriously!

This stuff is great and the stuff I speak of is Smashbox Waterproof Shadow Liner in Metallic Marble!

It’s $22 and it’s worth every dollar!  It looks brown in the picture, but this eyeliner is actually a very pretty glimmery gold looking eyeliner that looks great on everyone!

Trust me!!  You need to run out to Ulta right now and get what will quickly become your favorite eyeliner ever!

You will thank me later, but you will thank me even sooner if you get to Ulta before December 24th because you will also receive a free .25 fl oz Photo Finish foundation primer and .17 oz Photo Op Eye Brightening mascara with your purchase.

In case you are wondering, I have not been asked by anyone to promote Smashbox or Ulta.  I just happen to be a big fan of both and wanted to share one of my favorite things with the rest of you!

PRE- New Years Resolutions!!

I don’t know about you but 2013 has really flown by so fast for me!  I’m trying to remember some of the events of the year and it’s all a huge blur!

With that being said, there are only 21 days left until 2014!

I get very excited about fresh starts and it’s one reason that I’m not a hater of Mondays (NEW WEEK!) and what a better time to make some new starts than a brand new year!

This year I would like to get a jump-start on some of those goals.  If I start thinking NOW about some of the goals I would like to achieve in the new year, I have 21 days to really plan and work things out before the big day comes!

One big goal I would like to address today is WRITING!  I would love to give blogging more attention.  I’ve been blogging on and off since 2005 (Oh, if only I had stuck with it and not deleted my old blogs!) and it’s one thing I keep coming back to.  I love the idea of having my own little piece of the web to talk about all the things I love!

Now I’ll admit, my goal for blogging in 2014 is pretty ambitious, especially considering how crazy busy my schedule is and that I have hardly blogged at all in the last couple of years but here it is:

My blogging goal for 2014 is to BLOG EVERY DAY!!!

I know! Crazy!

But it’s a challenge that excites me, so why not?

I acknowledge that at the beginning, not every post will be interesting (if any of them are) but the hope is that by writing everyday, I will get better!!

Genius is not the realm of genetics.  Genius is the realm of practice. - Robin Sharma

I have other general resolutions like everyone else regarding things such as fitness and getting organized, but I will address those goals and plans in future posts.

HEY!  I need to leave something to write about if I’m going to be writing every day!

So who’s with me??? How about getting a jump start on your New Years Resolutions 21 days early!

Let me know what your 2014 goals are in the comments below!  I could use some added inspiration myself!
