I’ve been poking around as I’ve gotten back into my workout routine, trying to figure out what I want to do with the motivation mixes. Every week, I want to challenge myself to create a mix that’s unique and empowering, something that will make me want to get out of bed for my zero dark thirty workout schedule. Real talk: if I don’t get it done first thing in the morning, I will find a million reasons not to make the appointment, or work or personal obligations will do it for me. So, when I get up at 5:30 am, turn off the alarm, and then turn on the playlist, it had better be good.
In order to keep myself ready and willing to get up and make things happen, I’ve decided to challenge myself to go A-Z and start with a central theme that means most of the songs have to sort of embrace the theme….and all the artists have to start with that letter. “A” is WAY HARDER than you’d think, but I think this list will keep me going. The theme is “Ambition” and the artists are a pretty eclectic bunch: Alicia Keys , Adele, Aloe Blacc, Arrested Development, Annie Lennox, Al B. Sure, Alabama Shakes, Annie Lennox, and a few more.
I’m feeling ambitious this week. Let’s see how it goes. Join me, won’t you?
Happy Monday, all!
