At work today, I taught a boot camp class and had a blast!
I am subbing for another instructor who is out for the next few weeks and followed her format for the class. (You can see one of her workouts in this post: Boot Camp Workout.) She creates six stations around the gymnasium and groups of five people hop from station to station to complete the workout. Equipped with an upbeat playlist and some basic gym equipment, I taught the class and walked around from station to station, providing modifications for some of the more difficult exercises and answering any questions.
Here is today’s workout:
The class passed by quickly and everyone looked nice and sweaty by the end. Though I am enjoying teaching water fitness, boot camp-style classes are more my style since they’re the kind of workouts I absolutely adore. Fast paced and challenging!
Here are links to video demonstrations of some of the exercises:
Since I didn’t complete the workout with the class, I did my own upper body weight workout before finishing up work for the day (I worked the early shift again). I headed home around 1:30 p.m.
Once I made it back to our place, I threw together lunch using leftovers from last night and freezer food.
I tossed some leftover chicken and roasted cauliflower in a bowl with corn that I heated up from the freezer. It was good, but the highlight was dessert that came in the form of truffles!
On Sunday afternoon, I made a batch of truffles by following a recipe that my friend Minda sent to me. They are gluten-free, vegan and freakin’ delicious! They taste like little bites of brownie batter.
To make them, first process two cups of walnuts in a food processor. Then add one cup of pitted dates and four tablespoons of cocoa powder and process in again until a “dough” forms. Roll into balls, toss in a bag with unsweetened coconut and enjoy!
I ate two this afternoon and loved every last bite.
You must make these! Yum!
