This is a sponsored post. As a brand ambassador for Protein Fight Club I will be sharing my own opinions and maybe a funny story or two.
When I was in high school I had a love/hate relationship with gym class. I loved it because I could easily get a 100 in the class and raise my average, but I hated it because I actually had to participate.
Yes you read that right, the Zumba instructor who now can’t spend any less than 5 days a week at the gym, absolutely hated P.E. maybe it was my consciousness of having grown woman curves as a tween, or maybe it was my lack of coordination. Either way, it was a struggle to perform my best.
We had a variety of different things we could do, run around the track when it was warm (hated it), volleyball (ran away when the ball was hit towards me), handball (played it, but it hurt my palms so bad!) Basketball (I could nail 3pointers, but I couldn’t dribble), dodgeball (I used to pray for mercy from those boys with soccer balls and inhuman strength) softball (I was always terrified to bat, usually resulted in a strikeout) and of course the weights room (someone get me out of this stinky place!!!).
In high school I usually started my day off with something incredibly sweet, or something whipped up on the grill with bacon from the local bodega. Because bagels, and quarter waters (little water filled with sugary dyes) were so cheap, we all got that for breakfast. If I known what I know now, I would have at least started my day with some protein in a glass of milk!
Since Milk has 8g of quality protein, I would have a least had something good in my tummy to start the day. I did drink lots of chocolate at lunch with the rest of my peers however because nothing was better than the ice cold chocolate milk at lunch. But that was as far as my milk intake went until I got home.
As you can see in this Protein Fight Club video, milk clearly wins the battle against the breakfast burrito. I only had to do rope climbing once and I looked a lot like that burrito.
What were your favorite gym classes in high school? Were you an athletic star or a gym class dud?
