Workout Wednesday

Here is my selfish attempt at a new weekly post. My post-wedding weight gain has been terrific! And by terrific I mean I look like Michael Moore's evil twin sister.

Ok well maybe that is a tad dramatic but I need to take off these LB's I gained after the wedding. It seemed that I ate healthy for so long and then as soon as the wedding day came I made it a personal goal to eat as many possible calories as I could get my hands on without getting sick. We are talking stuff I never eat, ever! McDonald's, Wendy's, Pizza (scratch that I could eat pizza all day everyday). I think I even managed to convince myself that chips and salsa was a food group. So now, 18 days later it is time to stop this nonsense!

So to inspire myself to go to the gym, I will write about it. After all, power girl needs to look hot while she is schooling all the guys on sports right? What if you look like Susan Boyle while hanging with your favorite guy pal,? If you attempt to talk sports, don't be surprised when he assumes you are that new guy that moved in across the street and tosses you a brewski and a bag of cheese puffs. Not good for your dating life!

When I go to the gym nothing is more terrifying than thinking about getting on that treadmill for 30 whole minutes or trudging through an elliptical workout. Yeah, most gyms now have televisions on each machine which is splendid but unless there is a Real Housewives marathon on it still doesn't motivate me.

What does motivate me is great music. Now great music is different from person to person obviously, but I have a very wide range of music that I love (rap, pop, rock- classic and southern, country etc). I get really mad at magazines like Fitness and Self when they post workout mixes and it has crap like Need You Now by Lady Antebellum. Don't get me wrong, love this song, but if that is a get pumped workout song then slap me across the face and call me Sally.

In this post I want to talk about my favorite RAP workout songs. If you are my mother reading, and you think Rap music is the Devil's plan for world domination, then fear not, I will be posting different genres each week that I like listening to!

Not all Rap music, contrary to my mother's beliefs, is about wife beating and cocaine. Please, most rappers aren't even married ! :)
