Starting in January, I will have football practice two week nights a week from 8PM-10PM. In preparation for these late night workouts, I’ve moved all of my workouts to evenings. Last night I took a new class at Gold’s Gym called Sports Conditioning at 7:45PM.
I threw on some of my favorite Reebok gear, including a shirt I bought at the Reebok Outlet in Iowa last week.
The workout kicked my tail, but was EXACTLY what I needed in preparation for regular football season (and post Thanksgiving). We did a lot of squats, jumping jacks, kickboxing, and abs. I will definitely be taking this class again.
One thing that worries me about my 8PM workouts is my eating. Usually I get home around 6PM and then have dinner some time between 6:30PM and 7:30PM. Eating a full meal before football practice may not workout well, so I’m going to have to test a few things out. Today when I got home from work at 6PM I made a small snack to tie me over until dinner post workout. I enjoyed one of my favorite snacks, carrots and cottage cheese dip.
To make the dip you need a container of cottage cheese and a packet of dressing mix.
Next throw the cottage cheese and powdered mix into a food processor and blend until smooth.
It’s a filling and protein packed snack! Perfect for pre-workout.
After my workout I made Neal and myself a salad. I wanted a meal that was light, yet filling, and packed with nutrients. On top of butter lettuce I added diced apple, pan seared chicken breast, and basalmic glaze.
I was really proud of how I handled my diet yesterday and for trying out a new class at the gym. It was a great workout and a perfect day on Weight Watchers! One more day until my weigh in!
