****I have been working hard to set up some more GREAT giveaways for you!  Keep an eye on my blog to find out what they are!


  1. Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner! Yeah me!

    I have recently revamped my playlist and a few new additions to mine were Fighter by Christina Augilera, L.O.V.E. by Ashlee Simpson, several songs by Muse, and Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison (which is surprisingly a great running song!) and Dog Days are Over by Florence and the Machine.

  2. I have such a long list and it constantly changes... Anything fast paced or just makes me feel good is on there. There's some Kenny Chesney, Lady Gaga, Beach Boys... it's pretty random. Of course there's some Disney usually on there as well.

  3. The songs I choose for my playlist are inspired either by lyrics or beats. These songs motivate me to keep going when I want to give up while running. I love the lyric to the first four songs by Eminem -"Till I collapse", "Not Afraid", "loose control",& Nelly- Heart of a Champion. Major Lazer- Hold the line(my treadmil song), Chris Brown- Look at me now, Diddy- Hello, Good morning, Immortal technique- The point of no return, Maino Ft. T pain- All above, Justin Bebier- Baby, Neyo- One in a Million, Lupe Fiasco- The show goes on

    I just recently added Just dance-Lady Gaga, Fighter-Christina Augilera, Jessie J- Price Tag ft B.O.B, Katy Perry-Firework, Katy Perry-E.T. ft Kanye west, Jennifer Lopez-on the floor ft pit bull, Britney Spears- Till the world ends. I love any type of music that has a good beat, fast pace that get in my veins that make me want to move! Loving this post.
