I’m a firm believer that music does help guide a workout so that’s why I’ve put together some songs that may help you push through the best and worse workouts! This is your inspiration to go list! It’s always great to have a good motivational song come on while I’m working out because it sometimes gives me a second wind when I need it the most. When I know I’m going to have a challenging day at the gym or on a run, I will put this playlist on. What song pushes you through your work out?

It’s question and answer time here at We Beat Fat. This week I’m talking about my music. The simple answer to this question is: yes, I do listen to music when I workout.

Yesterday was my birthday! It was a great day so thanks to all of you who wished me great birthday wishes.

We instantly gravitated toward each other and from that day forward we were great friends. We fell out of touch because of a stupid argument after I graduated, but we reconnected 5 or 6 years ago…and continued to this point now. She… View Post

It was a hot weekend and I was supposed to spend it with my best friends in Mississippi. That didn’t quite happen. I prepped my food, filled a cooler, packed the car with my best friend and godchild and we set off. But there was a problem: traffic. The traffic was horrible and we stayed in place for so long we had to turn around and head back to Texas. Sitting in traffic is not the best place for a 2 ½ year old cutie. What did I pack in my cooler? Watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes, carrots, honey dew, chocolate milk… View Post
