Before I get into today’s super fun workout playlist (can you tell that I’m excited about it?), I wanted to share my workouts from yesterday.
I headed to the gym for my first cardio workout of the week. I spent 40 minutes on the elliptical doing steady state cardio. I honestly felt like I could have gone longer, but I didn’t want to risk my plantar fasciitis acting up again like it was last week. So instead I called the elliptical quits and spent 10 minutes walking the track for my cool down.
And now onto the workout playlist!
If you’re in your mid thirties like I am, then you’ll have grown up in the boy band boom of the late 90’s and early 2000’s. There were so many of them at one point and they were all over the top cheesy. I was a fan of a few of them despite the fact that I mostly listened to alternative when I was in junior high and high school. Does anyone else remember the reality TV manufactured O Town? I totally watched it with my brother. Spoiler: I have one of their songs on the playlist.
I almost hate to admit this, but Backstreet Boys were definitely my favorite, followed by Nsync and 98 Degrees. I remember being so excited to go buy the newest Backstreet Boys CD at the mall when it came out. First of all, no one buys CD’s anymore, and secondly, I think I’ve been to the mall once or twice in the past year. How times have changed in just 20 years!
This playlist includes everyone from New Kids on the Block (maybe the original boy band?), to Backstreet Boys to LFO to Nsync.
I’ve listened to the playlist a few times now while I’ve been at the gym and it brings back so many memories. I can remember junior high dances where specific songs were played, dancing with my 11th grade crush in high school, and even basement parties. I was so incredibly excited when I got invited my to my very first basement party. I thought we were so cool.

Who was your favorite boy band of the 90’s? Who was your biggest crush from that band?
