5:45 a.m.!

. . . is the magic number if I want to finish my whole workout before work.

I noticed much better range of motion in my hips during the side leg swing and the crane—especially for that hour.

Veggie pancakes and spelt for breakfast. Nom nom nom . . .

Also, I'm collecting songs from the 80s and 90s for my road trip. Send your favorites!

Speaking of hits from the 90s, it's time for a MORNING CONFESSION: I totally learned to dance from MTV's The Grind Workout videos.

As I was working out to the 90s on 9 this morning, one of the songs from the videos came on—The Bucketheads' The Bomb. Which reminded me that I can't get as low on the dance floor as I used to. So I figured I'd give it a try this morning. Y'all, I have a feeling I'll be getting LOW-LOW-LOW by the end of KFB. . . . 


  1. Bizarre Love Triangle by New Order (a good one to jump to), Peek-a-Boo by Siouxsie and the Banshees...and my personal favorite, No One is to Blame by Howard Jones.

    Have fun gurrl!

  2. oh I looooovvveeee pancakes. They are the greatest! going some place fun?

  3. I highly recommend Big Audio Dynamite for your jammin' needs.

  4. OMG! The Grind featuring Eric Nies! That's a total blast from the past!

  5. Those are great ideas! Thanks, y'all!

    @E: I knew I could count on you to be a kindred 90s spirit.

    @Jessica: NC to OR—cross-country road trip!

  6. I ate whole wheat pancakes the other day and it was. Bad.

  7. The grind really confused me as kid. I was very uncoordinated. I loved those Tai-Bo videos though. :)

  8. If you're getting that kind of ROM at 6 am your Golgi tendon reflex must be really kicking in. How exciting!
