Today was my last day of freedom before getting back to the routine tomorrow. So I made it a good one! I’m also going to try to get in a early speedwork run tomorrow mornin’, but I’ve never been good at early starts…
Confession #2: When the instructor asked if anyone was new, I didn’t raise my hand. I just went along with it! (I know I should have done, and if you are taking a new class, you should let the instructor know if it is your first time!)
Such a great workout! This class gave me the toughest cardio workout I think out of all the classes I’ve been to!
Love the mix of high-impact and low-impact stuff. The class is mixed up with sprint sections, slow high-resistance sections, etc.
Great use of music (Black Eyed Peas ‘Pump It’ for sprints= pure genius) and instructor was great.
My legs were dead afterwards. This class is obviously great for the leg muscles! Spin instructors (*cough Janae cough*) must have leg muscles of steel!
I actually don’t have any negatives at all for this class! I will defo be going back when I can!
Confession #3: I had to dash straight after class to make it to my dentists appointment, so didn’t have time to shower. Sorry Dr. Lincoln.
Then it was time to get ma bake on! First up was raspberry scones, from this god-send of a recipe book (Babycakes) that I have been raving about non-stop since I got it. And it did not disappoint.
I love all that stuff so much, that once I had finished those, it was on to the next thing. Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream. (From the same book). I’m going to a get-together thing tomorrow evening, and there’s going to be a buffet. (Alert the Buffet Monster!) So this is my offering!
My trick that I learned from the last time I baked cupcakes, was to make the buttercream first. That way, you can chill it so it’ll be ready to pipe once the cakes are done!
Confession #4: There was a lot of leftover buttercream. Any guesses where most of it ended up?
Man I wanted to eat one of those cupcakes so bad! I just had to content myself with consuming the leftover buttercream. Not a bad trade-off really! Buttercream > Cake to me. But you all know who’s gonna be first to the buffet table tomorrow to nab one of those bad boys!
So are you more of a buttercream/frosting person or a cake person? If you didn’t get the oh-so-subtle message from this post, I’m a buttercream+frosting gal! And have you ever tried spin? Thoughts?
