In Rotation - Workout Sampler (Part VIII)

plezWorld Workout Sampler

My iPod has a Workout playlist, that I use when go into my workout room to hit the treadmill and free weights. For the past couple of weeks, I have been diligently working on my goal of losing 20 pounds by the end of the year. Four times a week, my routine includes a 2 mile run/walk on my treadmill and then 20 minutes of weight lifting. The plan is to get my heart rate up for 30-40 minutes during my workout. I use the music to block out all distractions, make me ignore the pain (I have bad knees - long story), and keep my feet moving.

Thus far, I've lost about 2-3 pounds, so I'm well on my way to slimming down and getting my wind back! The MP3 Player above plays selected cuts from my workout:
  • "Numbers" from the Computer World LP by Kraftwerk

  • "State of Shock" from the Ultimate Collection LP by Michael Jackson & Mick Jagger

  • "Got Til It's Gone" from the Velvet Rope LP by Janet Jackson

  • "Slide" from the Stellar Funk: The Best of Slave LP by Slave

  • "Single Life (UK Mix)" from the The 12" Collection LP by Cameo

  • "Jupiter" from the All 'N All LP by Earth Wind & Fire

  • "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" from the The Original Hits LP by Sylvester

  • "Controversy" from the Controversy LP by Prince

  • "Vogue" from the The Immaculate Collection LP by Madonna

  • "Dr. Funkenstein" from the Tear the Roof Off LP by Parliament

  • WOW! I worked up a sweat just thinking about it!

    plez, congratulations on your determination to lose those pounds.

    I've gained fourteen pounds over the last few months, sitting around reading and writing. I can't say I regret it, because the things I'm writing about, I've been wanting to express for a long time. I have literally dozens of files in my computer in preparation for a book on Extreme Color-aroused Emotion, Ideation and Behavior Disorder (ECEIBD), more commonly known as Extreme Color Arousal (ECA).

    Anyway, it certainly wouldn't hurt me to go and swim for at least an hour per day, like I used to.
