Today I dragged my poor body out of bed at the ungodly hour of 6

a.m, but it wasn't to hit the gym. The CW-11 morning news here in New

York has a weekly segment called 'Wake-Up Workout' and I was today's

guest! Shape assistant editors Marissa Stephenson and Kristen Maxwell

helped me demonstrate some fabulous butt exercises.

After today, dragging myself out of bed early tomorrow to hit the gym should feel easy...right?
