I have shared this on my other Weight Watchers blog but I figured I would share this with you as well since so many of you will be making resolutions to work out this new year.
One of the trickiest parts of working out is finding the perfect mix of songs for your iPod. We all know that if a song is too slow it will cause a huge lull in your energy levels and make the work harder. Lots of people love watching tv while working out but the hard thing is finding something that draws you in or getting the channel changed to what you want at the gym.
My answer to this has been audiobooks. They are free from the library and totally take you away instead of focusing on your workout.
Pretty sure almost all women have a huge to read list but also want to exercise. I spend so much time on the trail every week that I have flown through the first two Mark of the Lion books (500 + pages each). This series is by Francine Rivers who also wrote Redeeming Love. Get to the book store asap if you haven't read Redeeming Love. You won't be sorry you did.
Apparently the people at Lululemon agree with me click here to hear what they say about it.
I do understand that you may need the pump up of music. I listen to mine while I am driving to workout. I also have the newest shuffle and I love that it holds tons of playlists for this exact reason.
One question though...
Can you say that you have read a book when really you listened to it? Don't tell my book club this month if it doesn't count.
