Hairography Playlist: 24 Workout Tracks for Spring 2015

By  |  0 Comments

I’m so excited that spring is here and summer is right around the corner, because it means I can finally retire my fleece lined tights, bulky knit sweaters, oversized winter coats, and my collection of my heavily insulated pants and slacks, for the next few months. While doing a little spring cleaning over the weekend, I was able to rediscover and accurately asses my collection of flirty spring/summer dresses and skirts, bathing suits, and strappy shoes, and I must say, I was quite happy to discover that most of my clothing items were still in good condition and still on point with this year’s fashion trends. I decided to try on a pair of cute, high waisted shorts I had purchased last year at an “end of summer sale”, that I had not gotten much wear out of last season. I remembered them feeling a bit snug last year, so I was relieved when I felt them slide up and over my hips with ease, and button without any stress or strain.

After indulging on goodies throughout the holidays, I’ve been working really hard on trying to maintain a balanced diet, with smaller portions, in hopes of improving my overall health, in hopes of dropping a couple pounds before summer rolled around. I know eating well is only half the battle, and while I have attempted to squeeze in exercise here and there, a hectic work schedule has made sitting on my butt in front of the television a more appealing way to spend my free time. I just sort of hoped, on a wing and a prayer, that if I compensated my lack of movement with eating more green things instead, it would all balance out some how. Once I slipped the button of my shorts through it’s hole, without even having to suck in, I thought my half-baked attempt at healthy living had actually paid off. Just as I was about to pat myself on my slightly more trim back, I looked at myself in the mirror. Though there was no muffin top, I looked…well…. I guess the kindest and least self-debasing adjective would be, “soft”. I looked soft and fluffy, like a fresh baked biscuit. I had definitely dropped some poundage, but there was still some sag and flab in areas that could use a little tightening and toning. With only a few more weeks left before Memorial Day, I’m going to have to get really disciplined in order to reach my goal of looking amazing in those shorts and being bathing suit ready. There is simply no way around it, in addition to continuing to eat well, I MUST hit the gym and exercise.

Now, I’ll be the first one to tell you that I hate the gym- it’s hot, it smells like feet, and being surrounded by fit happy people grunting and running yet getting nowhere, drives me crazy. However, I had just spent the last six months eating like a vegan rodent, and I could not let all that work go to waste, due to blatant sloth. I have to find some sort of silver lining that makes the gym experience more enjoyable. One of my motivational incentives I have found that always makes going to the gym less painful, has been creating a fresh playlist for the season.
