As much as I love my sweets, believe it or not I love working out just as much. But my workouts are only enjoyable if I have an amazing playlist to go with. My workouts start out intense, then slow down some, then the last few minutes I step it up again. I rotate between the elliptical, treadmill and weights. Here are some songs that really get my heart going:

1. Embers – Just Jack
2. Radio - Beyonce
3. Empire State of Mind – Jay-Z and Alicia Keys
4. Womanizer – Britney Spears
5. Calabria 2007 - Enur
6. Piece of Me – Britney Spears
7. XR2 – M.I.A.
8. Pump It – Black Eyed Peas
9. Jungle Drum – Emiliana Torrini
10. Starstruck – Lady Gaga

What songs do you like working out to?

I swear by Gwen Stefani and Britney Spears for my workouts. And I like to warm down to Fleetwood Mac. Don't exactly typically go together, but it works for me!

Nice list! Mine is something like that (but with way more Lady Gaga)

one of my favorite excuses for not working out is the fact that i dont have an ipod! maybe if i had one i'd make it to the gym every once in awhile, lol.

Thankkssss! I've found that anything beyonce and black eyed peas is wonderful for working out. By the way, did you know you won the giveaway on my blog?? If you have emailed me already I may have erased it on could you email me again if you did??

Ahh, you're absolutely right about having decent music for working out to. Britney Spears always gets me in the zone (see that album reference haha) as does Lady Gaga and anything fast paced with lots of drumming. Maybe.. the Yeah Yeah Yeahs too.

Oh, this totally inspired me to put some workout mixes together - however mine usually are more rock and indie than pop and rnb.
