I hate to admit it as a feminist, a rational human being and a lover of things coated in chocolate I have a problem with my weight. I’m a tad bigger than I should be and no amount of positive thinking can console me when I’m crying in a Topshop changing room because a pair of size 14 jeans won’t fit my ‘curvy’ behind.*
So I did the most unfeminist thing I could do along with being a serious drain on my bank account. I joined the gym. Now although I joined about 5 hours ago I already feel better but there’s one thing that’s bugging me. The club-tastic, uniform yawn-inducing music that gets belched through the gym’s enormous loud speakers.
It’s just SO awful. Who believed that we had to be numb to workout properly. I rebel, I say no I don’t want to listen to Akon, I don’t want to hear the god awful David Guetta more than once and I certainly don’t want to find out what N-Dubz actually sound like.
You can work up a sweat and listen to some meaningful music whilst you’re at it so here is my personal gym mix which I’ll hopefully be using 3-4 times a week to lose around 13lbs over the next 2 months. Wish me luck.
