Here is the muff pre frosting…
There was a lot of texture in this muffin. I could especially taste the flax. I am wondering if I should have used multiple different kinds of gf flour to get a smoother texture. I don’t really know the “rule” for gluten free baking, but I do know that Bob’s Red Mill’s Gluten Free Baking Mix has a bunch of different flours in it. Next time, I am going to try and add a mashed banana for some extra sweetness

Today I did the Ab-Salute! Core Vol 2. dvd. I really liked the length of this workout. 20 minutes is just enough time to rock my mid-section. I also really liked the frequency of the variations of ab exercises. Sometimes when I do a group fitness class or boot camp class, we get stuck doing the same exercise for too long and I get bored! I think it makes a big difference when you target all parts of the abdominal: lower abs, upper abs, and obliques. All three areas were definitely covered.
One thing that I wish the trainer would have done more of is COUNT! I like to know how long I am going to do something for or how many more I have left. Counting down helps me motivate myself to do more, because lets face it…you can always do more! I think I am a little bit nit picky because of my Yoga Sculpt training. Anyways, I could definitely tell all of the trainers were enjoying themselves. Their tone was very “supportive.” It wasn’t like a BOOT-CAMP-IN-YOUR-FACE, DOWN AND GIVE ME 20 kind of motivation, though. Sometimes this is good and other’s not. I think it depends what you, as the athlete is looking for. In my opinion, I like a little bit of both. I like to be pushed harder than I think I can push myself, but I also like a laid back trainer who makes me feel comfortable, which is exactly what I got from this dvd.
I am definitely excited to try out the rest of the collection I’ll keep you updated.
