New Playlist (Including Spotify!) + Music Faves

Hi, hi!


I am currently parked at my favorite local bakery for what I like to call “power hour.” It’s a no distractions, hammer through the to-do list and get sh*t done mission…aided by a oatmeal chocolate chip cookie and a soy cappuccino.

Short tangent. Sometimes I think to myself that I’m going to cut back on the amount of treats I eat…but then I decide it’s just not worth it. Life is too short and the joy I get from them is too great. So I’ll keep eating my cookies, chocolate and cupcakesΒ and being happy! πŸ™‚

Okay, I have a new playlist to share with you that I’m pretty obsessed with. It’s definitely one of the best I have put together recently.

And because I really, really love you and listen to you…I made a playlist on Spotify!

You should go listen to all of these songs but here are my absolute faves!

OMI – Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix)

Listen to this song and try not to dance. I don’t dance but this song makes me want to! πŸ™‚

Foxes – Glorious

Love everything about this song and how it builds!

Ellie Goulding – Love Me Like You Do

We’ll ignore that this is on the 50 Shades of Grey Soundtrack and focus on how amazing Ellie Goulding is. Forever my fave! I rarely make a playlist without one of her songs.

And yes, you read right when you saw “Duncan Sheik” on the list. Throwback but so good! I heard “She Runs Away” on my Sirius XM radio a few weeks ago and had to bring it back to life.

What songs are you loving? Do you use Spotify?Β 

And who is with me on keep eating the cookies!?Β

    oh, that capp and cookie look amazing. yes, life’s too short not to have your treats! πŸ™‚

    I’m totally with you on eating cookies! If it makes you happy, those calories are worth it

  • Liv @ Healthy Liv January 27, 2015, 6:18 pm

    I say keep right on eating the cookies! Brownies, cookies, and ice cream make me happy (in addition to giant salads, grilled chicken, and roasted veggies) so I’m definitely not cutting them out of my life πŸ™‚

    YESSSSSSSS! Thank you for the Spotify list. I was just about to make a new playlist for my run tomorrow, always love your suggestions. Yay!!

  • Katie @ Live Half Full January 27, 2015, 9:05 pm

    I’ve been on a nightly cookie kick- can’t stop! The cold weather has me craving carbs. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the great new-to-me music! I only recently signed up for Spotify but am still using the free version. I seem to be buying more and more songs via iTunes, though, so I might have to re-think that. A couple of songs I recently added to my Spinning playlists are “I Lived” by OneRepublic and “Geronimo” by Sheppard. I keep encouraging my class to watch the “I Lived” video for some cycling motivation/inspiration if they haven’t seen it yet!

    LOVE that you always keep it real and don’t deprive yourself! I am in Boston surrounded by 2 feet of snow, so hunkering down all day indoors means instant cravings for comfort food and baking! πŸ™‚ I’m 100% always in the say-yes-to-the-cookie camp!

  • kristina January 27, 2015, 10:58 pm

    i think you have to make the playlist viewable to public? i can play the songs on spotify but can’t view the whole playlist at a time…. even after i follow you..

  • Lyndsay January 27, 2015, 11:55 pm

    Very excited to listen to your new playlist. Thank you for sharing. πŸ™‚

  • Ashley Lovett January 28, 2015, 3:02 am

    Are you PBRunner91? Don’t see the playlist.

  • meredith @ The Cookie ChRUNicles January 28, 2015, 6:35 am

    I will never give up cookies or a good dessert. Would be a really sad sad day. I can’t see going out and not having what I enjoy, I mean, what would be the point in life? lol. Seriously though. I run enough, eat “healthy” enough that having what I love when I want to is completely acceptable and essential.

  • siobhan January 28, 2015, 8:25 am

    hey jen – id love to follow your playlist on spotify but can’t find it. any ideas?

  • Tamara @ A Side Of Dessert January 28, 2015, 8:54 am

    That latte and cookie!! You won we over with that!

  • Heather January 28, 2015, 9:23 am

    Hey Jen,

    SOOO excited you’re on Spotify! I’ve been waiting for this! πŸ™‚ Can you make the playlist public? I can’t find it there now.

  • Sarah January 28, 2015, 9:43 am

    Love Push pull by Purity Ring, I’ve actually been using it for my at home yoga flows lately πŸ™‚ Spotify is the best, I find it simpler than itunes is. I really like the idea of “power hour” and think I might end up adopting that for my own benefit… sometimes the infamous to-do list can get out of hand.

  • ali January 28, 2015, 11:36 am

    i followed you but no playlists are showing?

  • Julie @ Running in a Skirt January 28, 2015, 12:07 pm

    I need to implement power hour! What a great idea. I listen to way too much country and miss some of the pop hits sometime- These selections are great! Thanks for broadening my musical horizons.

  • Tracy January 28, 2015, 12:53 pm

    I’m now following you on Spotify but I couldn’t find the playlist… Did you name it?

  • Annie B January 28, 2015, 1:11 pm

    Awesome playlist! It’s going to be on repeat all day!

  • Lindsey January 28, 2015, 3:39 pm

    Sooo excited for the playlist, will you make it public!??! woo hoo! πŸ™‚

  • Cara's Healthy Cravings January 29, 2015, 7:02 am

    Stop eating cookies and ice cream, that would be nonsense! πŸ˜‰
    There’s always room for treats when you live a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

  • Sherri January 29, 2015, 8:26 am

    Pretty much every time I shazam a song at the box it’s a Calvin Harris lol. I’ll have to check this out – thanks!

  • Anna January 29, 2015, 9:12 pm

    Hi Jen! I can’t find you on Spotify! What is your username?

  • CM January 30, 2015, 10:26 pm

    Same! Can’t find you! Please post your username somewhere so we can follow your awesome music!
