Gym Music Playlist of the Week: Post Turkey Day Mix

While I somehow managed to not gorge myself this past Thanksgiving, I know that most people can’t say the same. I say this not in judgment, since I’m usually just as guilty of being in a turkey and gravy coma by mid-afternoon. If you managed to ingest a few thousand extra calories, it’s time to start working them off.

Since it will take you about a week’s worth of exercise just to get back to where you started, let’s make this cardio workout playlist a wee bit longer.

Gym Music Playlist of the Week: Something Old, Something New

As I get older, I find myself more and more entrenched in my musical ways. I love exploring new music, but I think I love discovering older music even more.

Gym Music Playlist of the Week: Go the Extra Mile

If you run at a moderate pace for 30 minutes, you’re probably going to burn in the neighborhood of 400 calories. Remember that the next time you decide on a couple after-work alcoholic drinks or that pie for dessert, which means you need to do an extra cardio session just to get back to even.

Actually scratch that thought, it’s too much of a downer. Just make sure you take the time to consistently get your cardio in and the occasional indulgence will be made up for. Maybe add a few minutes to each workout this week as well! Here’s a fresh workout mix to keep you going this week for those extra few minutes:
