Hot Jams

in All Posts

Need some fresh tunes for your workout? Here are my favorite songs from the current Billboard’s Top 100 list:



My favorite on that list is the Swedish House Mafia song – I love to drive with the windows down and practically scream the chorus.  And then do an epic fist pump. Reminds me of early 2000s club music.


I am very much looking forward to my run later!  It was very dreary out yesterday, so Henry and I participated in a little shopping cardio instead of jogging stroller cardio.  We scored some sweet thrift store toys – I’m transitioning his toy box from ‘baby’ toys (mainly chew toys) to bigger boy stuff (blocks!).




French Toast

Shredded Coconut


Coconut oil


Coconut oil is MUCH better than maple syrup. I swear!



What workout songs are you loving right now?


PS – The winner of the JayBirds earbuds giveaway is… Kerry, who says the hot commodity in her house are Thermoses. CONGRATS!

    I’m always a little amazed at how I never recognize modern music or artists. I’ll stick with my ’60s and ’70s jams!

  • Paige @ Your Trainer Paige February 27, 2013, 9:31 am

    I am so out of touch with music on the top charts right now (hello podcast addiction, lol) but this makes me want to bust out Pandora’s top 40 station!
    I am not so sure I could use coconut oil as a topping. I love cooking with it, but if I want a coconut topping, I usually go with shredded coconut or coconut buttah.

    love this post–for the music ideas to the coconut oil 🙂

    and the pic of Pippa in the other post is sooo adorable <3

    I always look at the iTunes top downloaded when I’m trying to find new songs but I haven’t looked in a whole. Apparently I should since I don’t know a lot of those!

    Oh man I love this post 🙂
    For one, they play “Scream and Shout” During the intense part of our workouts at my gym (i.e. running 10.0 at a 5% incline. woof) so whenever I hear it on the radio now my legs instinctively hurt. Pavlov of the workout world I suppose.

    I have been getting into these lately on my own workouts:
    Red Hands- Walk off the Earth (SO SO SO amazing!) awesome beat for a free run
    Hey Porshe- Nelly (still unsure why I love this so much)
    Wish You Were Here- Cody Simpson (when I need to sprint it out)
    Everybody Wants You- Billy Squier (yea, I threw it back with that one)
    What I Know- Parachute

    Happy Wednesday 🙂

    Haha Thrift Shop always makes me laugh. My best guy friend is really big into shopping thrifty so I bought the song as his ringtone. Every time he calls me I pick up on the last ring because it’s just so much fun to listen to the song 🙂 I wear your grandad’s clothes, I look incredible…

  • Alaina February 27, 2013, 11:04 am

    I love putting “Hall of Fame” on high volume when I’m running. Get’s my legs moving. 🙂

    I’m also loving “Troublemaker” by Olly Murs and “Your Body” by Christina Aguilera.

  • Sarah @ Yogi in Action February 27, 2013, 11:09 am

    I love all those songs. My favourite is definitely “Sweet Nothing” – I could listen to that song on repeat!

    Also, “I could be the one” by Avici vs. Nicky Romero, is a great song. And the video is the best.

  • Rachel Starr February 27, 2013, 11:20 am

    The new Fall Out Boy song is awesome as well as Icona Pop’s “I Love it”. Those 2 songs have been on repeat on my iPod 🙂 I’m so much more motivated to work out when I’ve got sweet new jamz to listen too!

      I should also add that if you like to stream music through Pandora, download the Songza app. They have AMAZING playlist & they even have ones specific to your mood or time of day! I happen to really enjoy “90’s Club Bangers” 😉

  • rachel February 27, 2013, 11:26 am

    i only knew one song on your list…i feel so out of it

    i’ve been listening to podcasts on my runs or running in silent – which i thought i would never do…and as it turns out can be really peaceful

  • Marisa E February 27, 2013, 11:37 am

    YESSS!!!! I am loving the current music beats….they are definitely reminiscent of early 2000’s!! Ah memories….I was in my early 20’s shakin’ what my momma gave me at the clubs on the weekends. Now- I’m dancing in my living room to these songs with my 5 year old and my 2 year old on my hip- ha!!!

  • Liz@youbetterworkmama February 27, 2013, 11:43 am

    Music is SO important for me to run to. On my first postpartum run my iPod died. Worst thing ever!

  • Emily@2:DESIGN:CENTS February 27, 2013, 12:02 pm

    Thrift Shop! Love that one, always makes me laugh.

  • LSandoe @ The Bright Side February 27, 2013, 12:02 pm

    Anything Could Happen is my anthem for 2013. That song rocks in every possible way.

  • Sarah February 27, 2013, 12:51 pm

    I’m loving on the classics! Journey and Bon Jovi are my favorites! The Eye of the Tiger Pandora station is ridiculous! It gets me fired up to pound out the miles!

  • Erin @ The Elliptical Chronicles February 27, 2013, 2:38 pm

    I’m loving “Thrift Shop” & “Scream & Shout” right now!

    The shredded coconut & coconut oil toppers sound like an excellent idea!

  • Angela February 27, 2013, 7:08 pm

    That French toast looks so delicious!!

  • Haley @ fullnfit February 27, 2013, 8:54 pm

    Kesha! That “C’mon” song is my jam these days! Whenever it comes on while I am driving, I do not give a you-know-what who is watching me.. I sing at the top of my lungs!

  • Kathy February 27, 2013, 11:01 pm

    I’m obsessed with Robyn right now…”Call Your Girlfriend” and “Dancing on My Own” literally on a loop with every run and every car ride. I know I look like a crazy person running and mouthing the words but she gets me through!

    • Sarah February 28, 2013, 11:12 pm

      Kathy, I couldn’t agree with you more; those two Robyn tracks are picks are mine also! And have you seen that girl dance? Love her.

  • Charise March 1, 2013, 8:44 am

    I’ve got 6 of those songs on my current workout playlist! Also loving Feel So Close by Calvin Harris and Titanium by David Guetta. Aaaaaand maybe the final performance mashup from Pitch Perfect. 😉
