The Gym Diaries

I have been hitting the gym three days a week....sometimes even four if I'm feeling particularly fat that day. If you want to know more about my visits to the gym, go here for the first Gym Diaries and then come back.

I am constantly changing my workout mix on my ipod, because you can only exercise to Britney and Timbaland so many times......

This week my new favorite song is called "Just Dance" by Lady GaGa. Click the link to listen to a preview.

It's fresh and funky. The words are pretty funny, too. It's the perfect tempo for my favorite piece of equipment right now: the elliptical. It burns twice as many calories as a fast walk on the treadmill. I'd be running but it's just too damn hot...even IN the air conditioning. So the running will have to wait until October. In the meantime, the elliptical is my friend.

What do you listen to while you're feeling the burn? I'm always looking for new music!

Oh, and by the way, my ass looks JUST like the one in this picture. You believe me, don't you?

I kickbox to Metallica. Gets me fired up. I do pushups to that song "It's Almost Over Now" by someone. I don't remember who. That's a useless bit of information, isn't it?

I need your motivation, I haven't been to the gym in 2 weeks! I am such a slacker. Unfortunately I cant give you any iPod suggestions, I always forget mine and end up chatting the whole 90 minutes I'm usually there. It only gets a little labored while running or lifting weights.

Usually I listen to myself screaming at my kids " Get the hell off the treadmill ... you gonna make mommy fall !" I like anything in the 80's or 90's.

I haven't been feeling any burn lately. But, if I did go the gym, I'd probably take songs from my newest (at least, new to me) discovery, Garbage.

May I recommend Will.i.am to work out to?? I am addicted, but when running you have to listen to some angry metal to keep you going.
