Music requests

Now that Lizzie is in school, I've joined a gym and I intend to go workout while she is at school. The issue is, I need workout music. Something fast and upbeat that I can speed walk or lift weights to. My "walking" playlist is pretty lame and I end up skipping more songs than I play. The songs are all ok but just not "up" enough to workout to. So suggestions please!

Thanks K for meeting me for coffee tonight. Sadly, D couldn't join us (missed you) but we had a super good time. It certainly made me feel better after the iffy preschool day and the horrible haircut I gave my daughter. Now I'm home and can get back to my guilt :) Now that the kids are feeling better, maybe we can start doing stuff again. D's words could not be truer. It has been like 2 days since I've been to a meetup and I'm going stir crazy. K, are you coming to the "smarshmallow" roast on Saturday? Bubba would love him some S'more and you KNOW you want some!. I even bought icky sugar filled "juice" drinks for the kids and wine for the moms! How could you say no to that kind of fun :)

Um, I don't work out, so I can't help you there. But if you're looking for some sit-on-the-couch-and-eat-bonbons music, I'm your gal! :)

We'll be there on Saturday - I just RSVP'd!
