After yesterday’s workout to some fantastic Michael Jackson songs, I remembered just how much music can invigorate a workout. It was high time for me to update my iPod with some new motivational music.
As always, this playlist has a lot of throwback ‘90s music (my fav!).
- Snap – Rhythm is a Dancer
- TLC – No Scrubs
- Ram Jam – Black Betty
- Destiny’s Child – No, No, No
- Glee Cast – Teenage Dream
- Michael Jackson – PYT (Pretty Young Thing)
- Pitbull – Give Me Everything (My favorite radio song of this summer!)
- Lauryn Hill – Doo-Wop (That Thing)
- Jagged Edge – Let’s Get Married (Remix)
- Real McCoy – Another Night, Another Dream
- Bell Biv DeVoe – Poison
- Swizz Beats – Everyday (Coolin’)
- Mariah Carey – Honey
- Rob Base & DJ Easy Rock-It – It Takes Two
- DJ Kool – Let me Clear My Throat
Now don’t you just wanna dance!?

You better believe my new playlist gave me renewed energy as I tackled this morning’s workout. I began my workout with 20 minutes on the elliptical before hopping off to conquer a total-body weights workout that looked like this:
|Leg press||130 lbs.||15||3|
|Incline bicep curls||15 lbs.||15||3|
|Side shoulder raises||10 lbs.||20||3|
|Leg extensions||40 lbs.||15||3|
|Chest press||15 lbs.||15||3|
|Bicep rows||15 lbs.||15||3|
|Hamstring ball curls||Bodyweight||20||3|
I was actually pretty proud of myself for doing a chest exercise on my own. I typically skip chest and back exercises when I do my own strength training (thank goodness BodyPump doesn’t neglect them!), but since I know I will likely be joining a gym in Ocala that doesn’t have BodyPump, I’m trying to incorporate those moves back into my own routine.
After my workout and Sadie’s morning walk, breakfast time arrived!
My morning meal included two toasted waffles, muenster cheese and veggie bacon.
I ended up eating it like a waffle sandwich and it was crunchy, cheesy, salty and delicious.
A solid amount of peanut butter fingers were also enjoyed as the waffles toasted because I am apparently too impatient to wait the 90 seconds it takes to toast a waffle to eat something.
Gotta get to work!
Today is Ryan’s last day of work at his current company and he will likely be home in the early afternoon. We’re hoping to see a late afternoon/early evening showing of the latest Harry Potter movie, so I’m hoping I can fly through some of the more mundane things on my to-do list today knowing that there’s such a fun activity awaiting me later today!
