Protein Shots and Jello

You know the warm jello liquid, all sweet and delicious, in that moment right before it goes into the fridge to set into jello? I used to love taking sips of that. What? Am I alone here? Liars. I am not the only one who drank the jello juice. 😉

Last night I taught a class similar to my Tabata Hell class. Tabatas, barbells, hand weights. Yes, I am sore right now. It was freaking awesome! (there’s a breakdown of class at the end of this post) I typically do the kickboxing class that happens right after my class, but what I taught really kicked my bootie, so I only did half of Megan‘s TurboKickboxing class, and then walked home (it’s a nice 20 minute walk, perfect for cooling the body down.) I wanted to stay for the whole class, but I was hitting the wall. Plus, I wanted to get home in time to watch So You Think You Can Dance. 😉

When I got home, I started to think, “What the hell am I going to eat? I need some major protein right now, but really don’t feel like cooking. . .” Insert “DUH” moment here. I had a Protein Shot from my Bulu Box waiting in the cupboard for me! YAY!!! So standing at the counter, I popped that sucker open.

Here comes the explanation of that jello comment earlier. The Fruit Punch Protein Shot tastes EXACTLY (and I really do mean EXACTLY) like warm liquid jello!!!!! I couldn’t believe it!! Since it was so sweet, and really concentrated, it took me about an hour to finish it. Since it’s only 2.5 oz, you’d think I could drink that in less time. But it was just toooooooooo sweet for me to really knock it down.

But I’m totally sold on it. I think next time I have one, though, I’m going to dilute in a bottle of water first. I could really get spoiled with 25g of protein in one little bottle! So if you ever come across Protein Shots, get one! Or three! 😉

So coming back to last night’s class. Here’s the breakdown of the torture that ensued:

~Warm up

~Tabata Squats

~3 mins Barbell Pilé with Overhead Press

~Tabata Pushups

~3 mins Barbell chest press

~3 mins hamstring curl with biceps curl on step with risers

~3 mins Barbell biceps curls and platter lifts

~3 mins knee lifts with triceps kickbacks on step with risers

~3 mins Barbell skull crushers

~1 mins jumping jacks with overhead press

~3 mins Barbell standing oblique crunch

~3 mins crunches and leg lowers

~stretch

It was an amazing class last night!! I love my 24HF peeps! I can throw anything at ’em! And they’re just like, “Sure, Heather! Let’s crush it!” So try this exercise list today! Give yourself a good hour to do this, make sure you have your water bottle, too! Pull your abs in, stand tall, squat low, and CRUSH IT!!!

Have you tried Protein Shots? What’d you think?
