Getting Back in the Groove: My Workout Playlist

You may remember from my “2016: Let’s Get It” post that I wanted to work towards losing weight!  Confession time:  I just started the exciting journey a week ago.  I’ve been eating  a lot better, but exercising is something I’m still trying to get back in the groove of. Instead, I just run.  Personally, running doesn’t feel like exercise! Nonetheless, here are a few songs that I enjoy listening to while breaking a sweat.  Click here to listen to the songs on Spotify!


  1. Play No Games –  Big Sean and Chris Brown: Thanks to my boyfriend, I’ve been a Big Sean fan for awhile.  I think this song is really cute and is great for warming up before a run.
  2. 7/11 – Beyonce:  What is a playlist without Queen Bey?  This uptempo song is great for a long distance run. Try not to stop and start dancing on the treadmill…that may not end well.
  3. Back to Back  – Drake:  I love Drake. No, but I really love Drake.  I love this song because it has so much attitude and it is perfect to sing to your haters…or the french fries you ate before you started running.
  4. Glad You Came  – The Wanted:  Simply, I can’t sit still when I hear this song.
  5. Suit and Tie by Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z: When I was in high school, I walked in a Prom Fashion Show to this song.  Now, I can’t stop strutting to it.
  6. Worth It – Fifth Harmony: I first heard this song in this hilarious video and I’ve loved it ever since. Plus, the girls are just so pretty!
  7. She Wildin’  – Fabolous and Chris Brown: Put Chris Brown on any track and he will kill it!  This is such a feel good song and it helps to push me through a run.
  8. Energy – Drake: Like “Back to Back”, I find this song is really empowering.  It will have you struggling between trying to sing to your haters and trying to breathe.
  9. Fun – Pitbull And Chris Brown: This was my summer anthem!  Pitbull is the go-to man for party songs and great workout music.
