Pancakes and Tennis

3 Jul


Jaci says hi! This pup just had herself an outside bath. She was looking a little ragged after a few too many times at the trail. Now she smells like wet dog. At least it’s a step in the right direction. πŸ™‚

This morning I had two lovers on my mind:



big fat blueberry pancakes with protein sauce ( 1 scoop protein power + maple syrup + almond milk)

And Rafa Nadal:

It was the Wimbledon men’s tennis championship this morning and boy was I ever nervous! I don’t know what it is about sports that get me so worked up, but I was completely wrapped up in this game. Unfortunately my favorite Spaniard boy couldn’t take home the title, but it’s okay, He is still #1 in my book.

It has been a lazy day so far, but I foresee some Body Pump in my near future. Lifting makes me happy. πŸ˜€ Speaking of workouts, I found out that starting July 12th, my gym will be launching a Group Kick class!!!! (AKA, kick boxing) I am SO EXCITED! There is no better way to get out all of your frustration/stress/anger than kicking and punching it up. I have a feeling I’m going to have a new favorite cardio class very soon!

What is your favorite class to take at the gym?

Hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend!

    just this summer I’ve really begun to enjoy watching tennis. Partially because of the eye candy, partially because it’s so exciting! and I actually understand it (unlike football, hockey, and every other sport out there)

      agreed! I guess I should have clarified that I don’t “get into” ALL sports…but tennis..definitely!

    Your dog is adorable!! I’m addicted to all of the Les Mills classes, Body Pump in particular. I always feel half dead at the end of that hour! I’m going to try your pancake topping – it looks delish!

    Awwr I’m sorry about your boy not being able to take the title, but at least he’s got his good looks πŸ˜‰

    I don’t actually take as many classes in the gym as I should… I’m pretty stuck on my weights routine at the moment, but I really enjoy Zumba whenever I make it out to a class.

    Those pancakes look lovely! I wish my gym offered some good classes but that are pretty lame….I do like the bootcamp and the swim cardio class they have though!

    I use to do a kickboxing boot camp then I began teaching it. I loved kickboxing. It made me feel powerful.

    Look at Rafa Nadal being all cute. (;

    I like kickboxing classes! They are usually so intense and really get my butt moving πŸ™‚

    Before you said what was in the middle of the pancakes-I really thought that it was almond butter! Looks identical! My favorite class at the gym is kick-boxing! Nothing better to get the frustration/stress out with a few punches! Happy Fourth of July! πŸ™‚
