What's Your Favorite Workout/walking Music?



Recommended Posts

Today is my first day hitting the gym (treadmill) in a LONG time and while I've got some great songs on my iPhone, I'm looking for some good workout/walking songs that are upbeat, motivational, uplifting, fun, energetic, etc.

Anyone have some good suggestions.....

Hi! There was a thread here awhile ago under "favorite workout tunes". Do a topic search and it should come up. I'm not tech savvy enough to give u the link directly. :( anyhow- I hope u get some good songs from the list. Good workout music is a must. :) good luck.

Right now I love anything by Florida(whistle, good feeling), Black Eyed Peas, J Lo(dance again), and other upbeat fast tunes. Good luck finding workout music, it makes such a difference for me!!

I just bought a 3 disc CD set at Sam's club that is top 40 music. The 3 discs are divided up by beat of the music.

I also have a Biggest Loser Workout Mix Volume 2.

Go to Amazon.com and you can download some of these for cheaper than buying them.

Metallica, Journey, REO & 80's English pop keep me motivated. I had a bike for 2 years...(really cute Doris Day sort of bike with a basket! lol) that hung in my garage my hubby bought me for a birthday.

I finally decided to ride it about 4 weeks ago....OM gosh what I was missing ...I love riding my bike! It makes me feel like a kid, best part is I can ride for an hour and barely get winded now...the sleeve rocks! xx :tongue2:

While I swim I appreciate the silence. When I bike I like the sound of nature, my day is so full of sound from work I appreciate the time of quiet.

Thanks everybody.....I've added a ton of new music to my iPhone....when I posted this topic I had started walking...but unfortunately I think I've over done it with getting back to work :( I have a very demanding job and I'm out in the field most of the day....the last 2 days I started work @ 7am and got back home around 6p.....I have been EXHAUSTED and know that I need to takes things at a slower pace. I ended up with a low grade fever last night but then got 9 hours of sleep and feeling good again today. I'm only 2 weeks, tihs is such a learning experience of what our bodies need and when they need it :) I am really looking forward to fitting excersie into my crazy work days. Althought with my FitBit (I am in love) I found that yesterday I climbed 10 sets of stairs, walked 1.9 miles and burned over 2,000 calories.....so being out in the field I am getting a work out :)

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho
