Back to School, Back at It: Workout Playlist Suggestions


workout playlist suggestionsWho doesn’t love new workout playlist suggestions!? Back to school often means a return to some of those mama rhythms, like hitting the gym (or the pavement!) that aren’t as easy to make happen during the summer. Getting back to it after a summer break can be hard. One of my biggest motivators is music. If I have the right beats, a workout flies by and gets me pumped up. 

Here’s a playlist I made to motivate you during a cardio/HIIT workout at home or at the gym! Its full of current hits and some goodies that you probably forgot you loved. Click here to view it on Spotify.

1. Rescue- Lauren Daigle
2. Look Up Child- Lauren Daigle
3. The Show Goes On- Lupe Fiasco
4. Shotgun- George Ezra

I’m a mama from (and currently living in) Newmarket, NH. Aside from a short stint in Raleigh, NC, post-college for an internship at a genetic testing lab, and 4 years at the University of Connecticut, I’ve spent my whole life in NH. I have my Bachelors of Science in Diagnostic Genetics and a certificate in college ministry. Now I get to work with college students through InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at the University of New Hampshire. My husband, Alex and I, have a bio son, Xander who is 18-months old, and a little girl on the way. I'm an enneagram 8, and I'm always on a mission to save the world, but my hubby graciously reigns me in. Currently trying to change the world for vulnerable children, hoping to see all children thrive and be loved; foster care, disability advocacy and awareness are close to my heart.
