and by that I do not mean my usual go to’s of yoga, walking or swimming in the ocean and sometimes I need playlists that are not comprised of every song on the Jersey Shore. But it is the New Year and this means that for at least the next 6 weeks I will be attempting some sort of new phsycial lifestyle. To do this I need a horrible combination of electro pop, remixed indie, south central gangta rap, mash-up oldies and soul, power metal circa motley crue, and a few songs that are so dirty they make you envision a toned body doing things toned bodies do….well, if you are not already invisioning it I can’t help you.

Well beauty comes in many forms and with this come many body types. Being in the fashion industry I have seen it all, and only from seeing that have I been able to realize you just have to love the skin your in. So if working out helps you do that and helps you keep that “shell” healthy. Then you bettter work. (thanks Ru Paul)

So here is my edited and shortened workout playlist that wont make your ears bleed protein shake and steroids like most of the rest. Don’t judge, my usual musical musical stylings are of the Bon Iver to Gypsy Kings to Fleetwood Mac variety. But who am I kidding, Pitbull will always be me secret lover and this list will probably still make your ears bleed.
