Hello Dolls!

Here's a little view of what me and hubs have been working on with our painting the weekend:

Pretty rad, huh?!?! It really changes the whole room and I LOVE it! The painter who will texturize our walls is coming tomorrow. I can't wait!

In other news, my brother bought me the CD "The Beginning" by the Black Eyed Peas for Christmas and I had the opportuntiy to listen the whole thing through and it really just reminds me how AWESOME the BEP's are to workout too! I mean, they are PERFECT workout music-definite beats, up tempo, electronica-LOVE IT!

So, with this CD in mind, I thought I would give you just a few of my favorite tunes to sweat too. These are songs that TRULY inspire me to MOVE. I hope they do the same for you!

In no particular order:

Ditty by Paperboy
My friend Jessica and I have an ongoing debate on what song we would walk out to if we were a professional sports player. After thinking long and hard, THIS is most definitely the song I would come out while doing the running man! Love it!

Drop It Like It's Hot by Snoop Dogg
This may not be the fastest song of the bunch, but boy does it have a driving beat and for some reason I just want to groove!

Faith by George Michael
Who doesn't like this song? And for some reason George-y has a better arse in that video than most women, so that just makes me want to move harder to achieve that greatness:)

Fever for the Flava by Hot Action Cop
WARNING: This song has some "suggestive" language so if you get offended easily, you can skip over this one. You really can't deny the way this song makes you wanna head-bang. Even if you are not a head-banger, you'll find your head moving uncontrollably to this beat!

I Wanna Sex You Up by Color Me Badd
Ok, again, not a fast song. But dang it if I don't LLUUURRRVEE thing song! I mean, I make my car shake when this song comes on because I'm dancing so hard!!!!!

Ignition (remix) by R. Kelly
This is a throw back to my college days and a shout out to the boys of ATO at Simpson College! Those boys would blare this song at parties and EVERYONE would jam! This song reminds of the good ole' days which always makes me wanna work harder! I can still sweat like a 20 year old-right?

It's Tricky by Run DMC
Running man alert!!! Although they are still "singing" this song, it's in a very loud, jarring manner, yet, not offensive. This song definitely will make you MOVE!

These are just a few of my favorites and more will come later! Please let me know your favorite songs to jam too! I'd love to look them up!


  1. I LOVE the fireplace!!
    I don't have some of those songs on my playlist, so I'll definitely be hitting up iTunes soon!

    Having to come clean, I friggin' LOVE B. Spears when I'm working out. For real- she makes me move. :) Can we still be friends??

  2. I love the fireplace! It looks fantastic! Sarah, Britney Spears is the best for working out, but especially Blackout, which is an all around fantastic cd (seriously).
