I think we can all agree that the most important part of any diet/exercise regime is the workout playlist. I mean, the wrong song can literally RUIN YOUR DIET. So, as I re-focus on my health by eating better and working out more, my primary concern is my workout playlist. Currently, it looks like this:
Bangarang – Skrillex
Let’s Have A Kiki – Scissor Sisters
Run The World (Girls) – Beyonce
Pretty Girl Rock – Keri Hilson
Funky Cold Medina – Tone Loc
Whip My Hair – Willow Smith
We No Speak Americano – Yolanda Be Cool
Jump – Kris Kros
Roar – Katy Perry
MotownPhilly – Boyz II Men
Work B**ch – Britney Spears
The Breaks – Kurtis Blow
Bom Bom – Sam and the Womp
Hey Ya- OutKast
Now, I’m pretty happy with this playlist….for now, but I’m pretty sure after a couple weeks, it’s going to get old. So, I’m turning to you, my darling lifehackers, for suggestions. What’s your favorite workout songs?
Day 1 of the Betty Rocker 30 Day Challenge was yesterday and I made it through! Yay! That’s like, half the battle, right?
I prepared for this challenge the way any true champion would, I had a weekend of french fries, nachos, and pizza. Because I’m a winner. Now, it’s all clean eating and planks and lunges and push-ups and also jello. Jello, as in, my arms and legs are apparently now made of it. One day of this and my bones feel liquified. Which means it’s working I think. 29 days to go y’all! We can do this thing!
In other news, I’m going to Ohio until next Tuesday so posts are going to be hiding under an invisibility cloak this week. Prepare yourselves for a full recount of Ohio shenanigans when I return. And for the record (that I assume elves are keeping) I will still be doing the Betty Rocker challenge in Ohio. While I’m on vacation. In Ohio. I should get a medal or something.
Remember how I’m on a diet? Yeah, I forgot too.
BUT- a recent picture of me next to a friend made me remember. Mostly because I looked like the giant fat roll monster who was about to eat her for a snack. So, I recently registered for the Betty Rocker 30-day Challenge.
First of all, her nickname is Betty Rocker. She had me at hello.
Second of all, in one of her other videos, Betty Rocker has the Captain America shield in her kitchen. Obviously, this is a woman I can trust.
What do you say? Want to do this with me? It’s free….and also BETTY ROCKER Y’ALL.
Y’all. I have gained a LOT of happy weight since my wedding. Yay for the happy, boo for the weight, amiright? So, your girl is going on a diet, and like all things in my life, I’m going to chronicle it for laughs. Because that’s how I do.
A few nights ago, Captain Thoughtful and I went on the first of many long evening walks after dinner. We just moved into a new apartment that we were told had a walking trail around the entire complex. Perfect. Or so we thought. We started the trail right outside our apartment and walked about a quarter of a mile, then the “trail” got real dodgy, but we followed it anyway, then it turned into walking amongst the construction of the new buildings. Then, a security guard told us that we couldn’t walk back there and that if management knew we had, we would be evicted.
Lesson learned: Exercise will cause me to get evicted.
Diet rating: Cardboard crackers.
