Most songs from the zumba class i used to go to super motivate me and make me want to dance.

Currently, the song in my head is "supergirl" by miss papaya (which I originally saw on an awesome sailor moon amv) it just motivates me to work out, be happy, lose weight and the whole thing o_O

Okay, super cheesy and old school, I rediscovered this song and put it on my playlist recently lol!

You Gotta Be  


Listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears
Stand up and be counted
Don't be ashamed to cry
You gotta be
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day
Herald what your mother said
Readin' the books your father read
Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time
Some may have more cash than you
Others take a different view
My oh my heh, hey
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day
Don't ask no questions, it goes on without you
Leaving you behind if you can't stand the pace
The world keeps on spinning
You can't stop it, if you try to
This time it's danger staring you in the face
Oh oh oh Remember
Listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears
My oh my heh, hey, hey
You gotta be
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day

 

I like listening to it after a tough run, while cooling down. Because it's kind of chill and I'm feeling like I could conquer the world afterwards haha!

 

 

"Soar" by Christina Aguilera!

 

I used to listen to it in my car before interviews when I was job-searching after college...such a scary time but that song really gave me confidence! She has such a beautiful voice too.

 

[Edit:] Here are the lyrics: http://www.lyrics007.com/Christina%20Aguilera %20Lyrics/Soar%20Lyrics.html

Gold Digger by Kanye for some odd reason.

Stronger by Christina Aguilera and Gonna Go Far Kid by Offspring.

The Fixer by Pearl Jam

♫ When something's dark, let me shed a little light on it
When something's cold, let me put a little fire on it
If something's old, I wanna put a bit of shine on it
When something's gone, I wanna fight to get it back again ♫

I love to listen to this song while I'm running. =)

Battle Song - Lecrae

This is War - 30 seconds to mars

Two of my favs!! Anything with a motivational message or I can relate to that's upbeat is great! :)

Stand Out - Tevin Campbell, always pumps me up and gets me motivated :D

 

Public Enemy- Bring the Noise    Always get so pummped listening to this song, the best!

Red- Let Go

Two of my Favorites

The Climb by Miley Cyrus.

Pink's F**kin' Perfect!

I mean how could you not like a song with lyrics like:

"Pretty, pretty please, don't you ever, ever feel
Like you're less than f--king perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you're nothing, you're f--king perfect to me

You're so mean when you talk
About yourself. You were wrong.
Change the voices in your head
Make them like you instead."

U2, Paul Okenfold Remix- "Its a Beautiful Day"!!!

DJ Rap- "Good to be Alive"

There is a song the choir in my church sings called "Free to Run"- love it!!

Funny, I grew up an 80's metal head and now it makes me nervous! lol

Stronger - Britney Spears.

 

During a run, it's so impowering, it would build up and then bam. I always felt like time couldn't stop me, and it pushed me to run longer. Now that I'm an experienced runner things like Moves like Jagger - Maroon 5 ft Christina Aguilera, Jojo - Disaster, and We Found Love - Rihanna. Those pump me up and I forget that time has gone by because they make me move so fast.

Body Movin' by the Beatie Boys and when they sing " let me get some action from the back section" I sing it to my butt while I'm running and I run faster and smile really big.  It's one of my many favorite running songs. 

I'm listening to it now and I can't keep still!

Maybe I'm a total nerd for this, but nothing works for me like some awesome instrumental music from an epic battle scene in a movie. Makes me feel like raising a sword and yelling "We are Sparta!" and then kicking some serious workout butt!

Lady GaGa - Edge of Glory

When I'm running, I position it in my playlist to a time I know I'll be pretty worn out. Right now that's about 45min. It gives me a little extra bit of energy to get over that mental roadblock and keep going without stopping to walk. Works pretty well. And sometimes other runners or walkers are amused by my lip synching.

"Remember the Name" by Fort Minor

If there's any song that can get me moving during a run, this is it.

"This is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill
Fifteen percent concentrated power of will
Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain
And a hundred percent reason to remember the name."

Also, I can't believe no one else has mentioned this one: "I'll Make a Man Out of You" from Mulan!

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
