my playlist for working it

I HATE to work out. I mean really truly HATE it with a passion. It really has to be disguised for me to enjoy it. I've never been able to hop on a treadmill and walk for an hour. I never will be that person. I do enjoy classes like Zumba, hip hop dance, kickboxing, or striperobics. Yes you read that right. Those dont feel like exercise to me and the time passes so quickly. Especially Zumba which is my new favorite. I even got my instructor to let me burn her CD to my ipod.

Now that I'm sitting at home all day I have to force myself to get up and do something to stay active. It was raining the other day and I literally laid on the couch and watched movies all day. I could do this everyday so I needed incentive. I've decided that my silver lining in the unemployment cloud is that I will be skinny and tan. I went to the beach this past weekend and have a nice base tan going. We also rode bikes a lot over the weekend which has jump started my weight loss goals. I have a thyroid disorder and when I take my medicine like I should it actually makes my metabolism pretty fast and I can lose weight easily so I can not use that as an excuse for being overweight.

I dont know how many of you share my mindset that exercise is torture. I thought I'd share my saving grace today. There were no classes when I went to the gym and I had to use the equipment for the entire 45min workout that I had planned for myself. My ipod got me through and at times I enjoyed myself. here is my playlist that I'd like to share. Maybe it will help some of you just push on through. You can click the links to open the song but make sure you do it in a new window.

1. Kiss the Bride- Elton John
2. Single Ladies- Beyonce
3. Girls- Beastie Boys
4. Stripper- Sohodolls
5. Rock and Roll- Eric Hutchinson
6. I just Wanna make love to you- Etta James
7. I got my mind set on you- George Harrison
8. Sweat- Inner Circle
9. Bring you Down- Left Front Tire
10. Rock- Lexicon
11. Scotty Doesnt know- Lustra
12. Give it up- Pepper (This song is dirty, dont listen with kids around)
13. Make it Funky- Will.I.Am

You might be asking yourself why songs like "stripper" and "I just want to make love to you" are on here. Well there are some hotties at the gym and I think I should feel sexy when I'm sweating up a storm. I kept catching myself dancing on the treadmill. At one point I was shaking my butt. Whatever works right.
