I heard a song yesterday that inspired this post. That song was Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation.
I don’t know about you, but I listened to that album a LOT! A good number of people who read my blog are around the same age as me and I think that today’s a good day to acknowledge some awesome things from our childhood that maybe you’ve forgotten. Welcome to Flashback Friday, Fitness Edition!
First up: This Guy. Duh.
Remember him? I do, cause we had his workouts on VHS. Because of this man, I know all the words to Rockin’ Robin, Build Me Up Buttercup, and Gimme Some Lovin’.
Next on our list?
Oh, heeeey, legwarmers! They’re not just for warming up, you know. You can wear them with heels! Almost as good as (but not really) the stirrup pant. Mine were purple and I loved them.
Wait, this is an option? Um, bad idea! I repeat: BAD IDEA!
And everything else on this page, really. When I think about all the fun fitness crazes from back then, it makes me sad my gym doesn’t offer Jazzercise as a class. Will we look back on Zumba like this some day? Don’t answer that.
I should really make a Flashback Friday playlist! All in favor??
Well, now that we’ve reminisced about the Good Ol’ Days, let’s get to today’s workout and breakfast, shall we?
Workout & Breakfast
This morning the alarm went off at 4:30 and after hitting snooze a couple times I managed to make it to the gym around 5:15. I got on the Adaptive Motion Trainer expecting to do a quick 20 minutes and ended up getting sucked into the news on CNN, so I stayed on there for about 45 minutes. That’s about all the time I had at the gym, so after some stretching I headed home to get ready for work.
Breakfast today is a quick and easy bowl of cereal. I topped mine with banana slices and dried cranberries.
I have one more busy day at work before I get to start the WEEKEND! Woo hoo! Happy Friday, everybody 🙂
What are you up to this weekend?
What’s the most embarrassing thing you wore as a kid?
