June 2016 cardio playlist + Musical cardio workout

Hey hey party people. Happy humpday! Hope your week is going well. P’s 7 month update is up on the Family page here. 🙂

This spin teacher is back in action! It felt so great to be back in the saddle, especially since I mentioned before that there was a time not too long ago where I thought I might not be able to spin again. I just have to stop myself from getting awkwardly emotional at the end of class. You can’t come back from hiatus and cry at everyone.

Spin bikes

I was so excited to put together an awesome playlist, especially since we have a new lighting system in our spin room. I can change the colors of the stage lights, set them to flash to the beat of the music (awesome for sprints), and turn everything off but a single spotlight for heavy hills. It. Is. Awesome. I’m still getting the hang of the remote, but I don’t think it will be too bad. 

Here’s the playlist I put together for this week’s spin classes, and wanted to share for your sweaty summer cardio workouts! It’s a great mix of steady beats for tempo work, driving choruses for sprints, and slow, intense jams for hill climbing.

I hope you love it!

August 2015 Workout Playlist

Hi friends! How’s the morning going? Lately, I’ve had the worst time getting moving in the morning which I think is could be due to the third trimester slump. Caffeine, I miss you! Yesterday was a lot of fun and packed with activities. I joked about getting lost in the IKEA maze, and we really […]

June 2015 Yoga Class Playlist

Hellooooo. How’s the day going?? I’m a little later blogging today because I had a dentist appointment (always a joy) and then met up with a friend for brunch. We had Naked Cafe, and the soy chorizo and egg white tacos rocked my world. I want this every day. Ice cream with my best girl:

Spring Solo Spin Workout (+ playlist)

Hiiiii. What have you been up to today? I’m just returning back to the world after totally crashing out while putting Liv down for her nap.
