Tuesday Tunes - Winter Running Edition

Seasonal update time!  This is what I'm listening to while I'm working out this winter.  I'd usually say this is what I'm listening to while I'm running, but I haven't done much running recently.  I've been finding it easy to make excuses to not run.  The weather has been pretty helpful in that area too, providing us with a long stretch of bitterly cold weather.  We're talking below zero here, and frankly I don't have the gear or tenacity to take on a run in those conditions.  YET.  It was nearing 45 today and I'm planning to increase my running no matter the weather.  Hopefully my running will be more consistent soon, thanks to a friend's generosity and my husband's cooperativeness. More on that another time.

For now, I'm getting back on the exercise wagon after slacking for a month.  I've noticed a huge difference in my energy, mood, and anxiety when I exercise regularly so it's time to prioritize that.  These songs keep me moving and motivated. Some of them are are all time favorites, and others are total pop fun, which I think is the key to making any workout fun.

Serena Ryder - Stompa

Pharrell Williams - Happy

Beyonce - XO

Selena Gomez - Come and Get It

This is what I picture in my head while I'm running during this song.  It really helps.  You're welcome!

Because it's winter in Maine, and we've been getting weekly snowstorms - we go sledding.  Because I blog, we share that fun with you.  Happy weekend!
