Fitness Kick Start: My Ultimate Playlist.

I will warn you – I am a slave to pop music. If it makes your ears bleed, you may as well leave here and go enjoy a smoothie.


Mr. How Sweet and I each have 10 years of downloaded music, plus hundreds of CD’s. That’s a lot of music.


If you haven’t already figured it out, I get bored quite easily. I always am in need of new music to complete my cardio workouts.


Lifting is a different animal. I can put my entire iPod on shuffle, and listen to whatever comes on, be it Sinatra, Kenny Loggins, or any other old-granny-music that I normally listen to.

And yes, I am that person that puts my iPod on ‘shuffle,’ then forwards through 20 songs until I come to one that I really want to listen to. I then repeat that for the next 30 minutes.


Here is the playlist that is getting me through my early workouts these days:
