songs to get pumped to

Happy Monday! Ready to get pumped for the rest of the week?

Since my grown up goal this month is to get fit, I figured I'd share a few of my favorite jams to get active to. Each of these songs have caught me during a moment of weakness and put a little pep in my step to either start jogging or keep pushing.
Since I love to sing and dance everywhere I go, I'm using the same energizing songs in my work out routine. If it makes me want to fist pump in the car, it'll probably make me run harder on the trail. So far, no song has gotten me as pumped up or ready to run as Holy Ground by Taylor Swift. Who would have thought my lanky blonde soul sista would produce such great pop jams for pushing til the end of the run?

What are your go-to tracks for a rockin' run?


  1. Peacock is seriously on every workout playlist I have. Haha.

  2. Great selection! I love all of these!

  4. Ahh I love Holy Ground! I dance to it by myself in my room haha One song that always gets me pumped is "Runaway Baby" by Bruno Mars. It has this super fast beat that goes perfect with my running pace! But then when the song is over I basically wanna die of exhaustion haha

    Always good to see another fellow Austinite blogger! :)

  5. So, there's one thing I will always be a failure at, and that is dedication to exercise. I love yoga and swimming but I have zero determination, will, or desire to leave my apartment. But I am dedicated to the stairs! I'm on the 4th floor now and I take the stairs when I can. It's my unofficial workout plan.

  6. This is a great playlist! One of the songs that always, always, ALWAYS makes me run hard is "Scheibe" from Lady Gaga's Born This Way album. The beat is so great!

  7. This sounds fun! I've been known to just let Pandora go (either the Tegan and Sara station or the Arcade Fire station). They both help me find a groove and just run for a while.

  8. This playlist is awesome! I just went listen to that t-swift song, and I love it! I love that you have countdown on here... anything beyonce or destiny's child makes for good working out music.. meaning you MUST add bootyliscious to this playlist asap. asap I said!
