Happy Tuesday morning.
Tuesdays I teach my early morning spinning class, and this week I begin teaching more of my very own classes on Wednesday and Thursday mornings. In order to kick-off summer I decided to have a little contest.
I am calling the contest the Super Summer Slimdown, and the way it works is that when someone attends a class, starting this week, they get to input their name in the jar for their class. Then, during the first week of summer, the week of June 18, I will draw a name from the jar to win a fitness goody bag! So, the more classes you attend, the better your chances are for winning. I always love looking for fun ways to spice up my group fitness classes, and celebrating summer seemed like the perfect idea.
When I got home from spinning, I was really looking forward to some protein pancakes. I had never made them before, but after reading several different recipes I thought it would be pretty easy to figure out a good combination of ingredients…well I think I was wrong.
The texture of the pancakes was fine, they cooked up nicely, but the flavor was simply off, which was kind of frustrating and unexpected since they looked so good and tasty! Honestly, I think it is because I have been using a protein powder that I cannot stand the taste of simply because I hate wasting things, and usually I am pretty good about being able to eat something even though it may not be my favorite….that was not the case with these pancakes.
I am still going to play around a bit in the kitchen to see if I can figure out where the heck I went wrong…but I think I may just need to suck it up and buy new protein powder…that I can actually stomach.
Questions of the Morning:
- What do you look for in a group fitness class? What keeps you coming back for more?
- What is your favorite kind of protein powder??
