Tunes Tuesday

No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to get into those motivational fitness posters that are flooding Pinterest. You know the kind… the “Keep Calm and [do something unrelated to keeping calm]” or the ones with Little Miss Hottie with a Body posed precariously over a bench and the phrase “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” or “Run until your legs fall off. Don’t stop. You’ll pass out before you die. Train hard. Rinse and Repeat.”

Yeah, NEWSFLASH: Not motivating. I don’t know about other girls but I’m more motivated by a new pair of pink Nike booty shorts, the kinds that don’t ride up when I deadlift. I put these on and all of a sudden I get it in my head that I’m a flyer for the Dallas Cowboys cheer squad. Oh, wait, they just dance… in booty shorts. Still more motivating than those don’t-tell-ME-what-to-do Pinterest posters.

Other things I find motivating on this fine Tuesday morning: Burgers, Akinwale’s outlook on women and muscles, and Indie tunes to lift to. So for Tunes Tuesday, here’s what I’m warming up and lifting to:

And the COOL DOWN. Yes.
