Losing Weight

Cosmopolitan® recently posted their list of best songs to which to work out. As I am trying to lose some 20 pounds (what women isn’t?), then I thought I would check it out. This is what Cosmo suggested:
“Circus” by Britney Spears
“4 Minutes” by Madonna and Justin Timberlake featuring Timbaland
“Disturbia” by Rihanna
“Just Dance” by Lady Gaga
“The New Workout Plan” by Kanye West
“Shut Up and Let Me Go” by the Ting Tings
“Fighter” by Christina Aguilera
“So What” by Pink
“Under Pressure” by Queen and David Bowie
“Wherever, Whenever” by Shakira
“Ring the Alarm” by Beyoncé
“Send Me on My Way” by Rusted Root
“Like a Prayer” by Madonna
“La Camisa Negra” by Juanes
“Flat on the Floor” by Carrie Underwood
“Lit Up” by Buck Cherry
“Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor
“Born to Run” by Bruce Springsteen
“B.O.B.” by Outkast
“Everlong” by Foo Fighters
Although I can say I enjoy lots of these, I have my own list.
Billy Ocean – “Loverboy”
Bon Jovi _ “It’s My Life”
Bon Jovi – “Livin’ on a Prayer”
Bon Jovi – “You Give Love a Bad Name”
The Spinners – “Rubberband Man”
Chicago – “I’m a Man”
Irene Cara – “Fame”
Bachman-Turner Overdrive – “American Woman”
BTO – “Let It Ride”
BTO – “Takin Care of Business”
Spice Girls – “Wannabe”
Young MC – “Bust a Move”
What gets you up and moving??

    I walk around App State and the Boone general area with my iPod all the time, especially if my destination is at least a mile away. I am a huge techno/dance freak, mostly because several of the songs are fast in tempo. You probably have not heard of some of these bands before, but this is what I like:

    Daft Punk
    Adam Ant (especially “Goody Two Shoes”)
    Maroon 5
    Michael Jackson
    Electric Light Orchestra
    Pink Floyd
    .38 Special
    Dance Dance Revolution soundtracks

    “Living on a Prayer” is a great work-out song hoice, by the way.

    • I cannot imagine you as needing to lose weight, but the concept of the “freshman 15” is more than an urban myth.
      Actually, I knew of many of these groups/songs. Some days on my iPod I use really upbeat music. On other days, I bring it down a “notch.” I have been known to repeat the same song dozens of times if it keeps me motivated when I am exercising.

        Well, I don’t really need to lose weight too much. I just really like walking and Boone in the fall is amazing.
