Workout Motivation + My January Playlist

Good morning ya'll!
I first off want to say wow (!) and thank you... this week's Mingle Monday Blog Link-Up was record breaking! Over 100+ fabulous bloggers stopped by for some networking and I am just giddy over it. In case you haven't linked up yet, please stop by - it's open for mingling ALL WEEK every week!

Now, let's get down to business. 

Who decided to jump on the wellness bandwagon after the New Year? Yup, if you're hand is raised you are definitely not alone. I also needed a fire lit under me to get back to better habits after polishing off one too many Christmas cookies. In case you're feeling the same way, I have 2 things you need to know...

1) I'm proud of you! 
Healthy living takes a lot of hard work and you are getting back on track! Don't be afraid or embarrassed of what you need to do - whether taking a new class, getting nutritional help (I love Weight Watchers - down 5lbs!), or finding a workout buddy to hold you accountable. You've got this, so trust yourself.

2) We can do this together!
Yes, I am here going through the same thing. I'd be lying if I said I was looking forward to putting in all the hard work, but I'm feeling empowered to make a change and that alone helps me stick to my commitment. So of course this is why I wanted to post my favorite workout jams for you today! These have been getting me through those dreaded after work dates with the elliptical. In the same boat? I think you will love them too!


18) Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding (cool down)

  1. You can do it, girlfriend!! I've been on a Ellie Goulding kick and I also can't get enough of T. Swift's "Style" shame ;) Wish I was going to be seeing you Friday evening!

    26 and Not Counting

  2. ahh i really really need to update my playlist! thanks for the recommendations! xo jillian

  3. Great playlist! "Shut Up and Dance" is one of my new favorites!

  4. There is no shame in loving some T. Swift! And this is from a girl who hates 95% of pop music...

  5. Right now I'm loving "Contagious" by Night Riots, "Hollow Tune" by Brick + Mortar and some T. Swift too...

    The Clean Project

  6. Omg yes! Ellie Goulding and TSwift tunes are where it's at, sister! Have you heard EG's new song on the 50 Shades of Gray soundtrack? Obsessed. It's the last one on my list as my cool down song. Repeat, please!

  7. OMG yes! I love TSwift so much and I can't wait to see her when she comes to KC in Sept! :)

  8. You're welcome! I get in a workout song rut, so I always love it when people have suggestions for me too - happy jammin'!

  9. Yes!! No matter what I am doing, whenever I hear that song my toes start tapping instantly - love it!!

  10. Uptown Funk is my very fave song right now.....they played it during my workout yesterday and I swear I felt 10 times stronger! Crazy how music can be so motivating. Loving Lips Are Lyin and Blank Space right now too!

  11. Adding these to my playlist ASAP - keep 'em coming, Elle! ;)
