Tik Tok...


Yes, you heard it! Those are the seconds that are quickly passing in the countdown towards bikini season!!! Ahhh!

After training for and running a marathon for Team in Training in '06 and then subsequently partying my little (ok, not so little!) hiney off in NYC for the better half of '07, I never really got back on the workout wagon! '07 also marked my entrance into the grown up world of working 50+ hours a week and sometimes more, and it was so, that I never achieved that perfect work/life balance. Happy hour (especially in the midst of Manhattan withdrawals) was just much more comforting than the silly treadmill!


FINALLY after 2 years of being miss fatty pants, sheesh I can't believe I let myself be photographed in a bikini LY, not to mention these photos are tagged on FB! ekk!- I'm back with a vengeance!! Kelly Ripa, a.k.a. K RIPPED if you hear me gushing about her, is my new role model. I know better than to compare myself to the likes of Marissa Miller, and Kels has a petite frame like me so I have deemed her a realistic idol! She also jokes about her "girls" or lack thereof, which makes her even more like me! LOVE her!!

Are you on the workout wagon? I just wanted to share a few of my fave workout songs as of late! This is my soundtrack to kickboxing a.k.a. turbokick, spinning, strength training a la P90x, hip hop hustle (So fun!), and whatever else entices me to hop into my beloved Under Armour!

What I'm doing to get back into bikini shape:

1. Swimming
2. I just started on something new today: Gyrotonics. It's inspired by yoga.
3. Now that the snow and ice are melting, I'm back on my bike

For the first two things, I don't have any music. I've been thinking of getting a Swimman (a watertight Ipod) though, so I can have music in the pool, too. For the gyrotonics, I have a private trainer, and I guess the point would be lost if I didn't listen to what he's saying. :)

Playlist about 200+ songs, but here's a selection:

1. JLo - Love don't cost a thing
2. Shakira - same as yours, I love that song
3. Def Leppard - Hysteria
4. Odds & ends -That's what dreams are made of (from the 1988 Summer Olympics album)
5. Def Leppard - Pour some sugar on me
6. Christina Aguilera - Dirrty
7. Pink - Just like a pill
8. Fort Minor - Rember the name
9. Enrique Iglesias - Push
10. Tone Loc - Funky Cold Medina

I like fast music when I work out. :)
