Motivation Monday: This months favorite tunes.

Happy Monday!

It has been a really hard couple of weeks. I lost a ton of motivation. Towards the middle of last week I found myself really down on myself and not wanting to go work out. On a whim I got on Pinterest and search fitness motivation.

I was super encouraged and it really changed my week. Later that afternoon, after a run, I realized that I was really sick of all the music on my “Workout” playlist, (I use Amazon Prime music on my phone so I can add just about any song) so I switched it all up and added a ton of new stuff. It really changed my workouts for the rest of the week.

So in hopes of encouraging any of you who might need a little motivation boost, here are some great songs to add to your playlist.

The fist song on my playlist is usually a five minute song with a nice upbeat tempo for my warm up. This month Home by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros does the job perfectly.

 

A great son to start off your workout too...it five minutes long and has a great up tempo beat.

 

 

 

 

 

Next Up is My Sweet Summer by Dirty Heads. This song has a great beat and is a nice easy start. Its also very pertinent…we put all of our patio furniture away for the winter and its so depressing.

Changing up the music on your playlist can give you a little extra motivation when you need it.

 

 

 

 

 

First by Cold War Kids has been a favorite song of mine for a long time, it came on when The Hubs and I were in the car last weekend and I realized it needed to be on my playlist.

Any song that you love to jam to should be on your playlist.

 

 

 

 

 

At this point I am usually about 10 minutes into my run and am hitting my first wall…enter a song with a fun message and a little EDM feel. I cant stop by Flux Pavilion. It’s also nice and long to get me over this hurdle.

Changing up the music on your playlist can give you a little extra motivation when you need it.

 

 

 

 

 

After a while I get sick of hearing boys voices so its time for another awesome chick to fill the airwaves, so the month I went with Outside by Calvin Harris featuring Ellie Goulding.

Changing up the music on your playlist can give you a little extra motivation when you need it.

 

 

 

 

 

The next tune on my playlist has been there for a while, and I can Imagine (see what I did there) that it will be there for a while. I love the apocalyptic nature of the song. It makes me feel like I am running for my life, it’s Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. I linked to the actual video for the song because it’s super cute.

Changing up the music on your playlist can give you a little extra motivation when you need it.

 

 

 

 

 

A few other new songs to make the list include Jane by Jefferson Starship. I felt like taking it back a little old school and the song makes me think of Bradley Cooper in Wet Hot American Summer…if picturing Bradley Cooper isn’t motivational I don’t know what is.

And last but not least my favorite cool down song. Its another five minute song by one of my favorite artists (and Coloradan) Gregory Alan Isakov called The Stable Song.

Changing up the music on your playlist can give you a little extra motivation when you need it.

 

 

 

 

 

What do you do when you lose motivation? What are some of your favorite work out songs?

    Now you know I must be over the hill if I’ve only heard a few of those. I listen to Beethoven mostly or whatever my teens are listening to. They’ve got me listening to the Panic at the Disco… I’m ready to have a heart attack here.
