Get determinedIt’s that time of the year again: the ever-optimistic New Year’s Resolution time. While I don’t advocate resolutions, many people believe the New Year is the perfect time to get started, get fit, get back on the horse.
Many of us start out strong with our workout routines, but it doesn’t take long for our day-to-day lives to intrude. Meetings go late so we miss our kick-boxing class.

Recently, though, I’ve found that Blip.fm is a lot of fun, especially because so many of my brilliant and creative Twitter friends are on there. More great resources include the Jim-Fit blog, Pandora Radio, and, of course, hubby @thronkus‘s spinning classes. And then there’s always @akaMonty‘s Friday Night LIVE, but I would say that music is more what *not* to play! 😉

I know there is so much more out there, so tell me: what are your favorite music inspiration sources? What are your favorite workout songs? What’s at the top of your iPod playlist RIGHT NOW?
