Getting Your Praise On While You Exercise! Who knew?!

Years back when I first started running, I realized quickly how more effective my workout was when I had something playing in my ears that helped get me moving.  Ya feel me?  I mean...I really needed to rock da beat if I was going to put myself through the misery of muscle aches and sweat.  Holla if ya hear me?  At first, I created a list of jams from my high school and college days.  It was neat to reminisce at first, but I learned fast at how traveling down Memory Lane wasn't as fun as I'd thought it would be.  Then, I started downloading songs from what I heard on the radio.  And while I'll agree with those who think radio jams help in getting you to shake your tailfeather, I found some of the songs a bit much.  We all know a little bit of Britney can go a long way, right?  Plus, for me, some of those songs made my head go to places it just shouldn't be going.  Anybody hear what I'm saying?  So, with that being said, I created a list of songs that first and foremost, get your booty moving, and secondly, they're good for your soul, too.  Bonus!  So, behold my list of Jesus Jog Jams.  It's my go-to every time.  Thought I'd share the love...just in case you're needing to get your praise on while exercising.  It can be done, people.  Enjoy.

  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!! Thank you for coming up with it and sharing. I completely agree with all your sentiments. I love to shake me some tail feathers too but I often found that too much time down memory lane was really not good for me. I also am a big fan of "killing two bird with one stone" and if I am going to be arunnin I also want to be aworshippin. Great job!
