What makes a yum and healthful dinner after Zumba?
Well, an appetizer to start..
The main course...
After missing my two favorite Tuesday classes - Bodypump & Spin - there were very few choices left: Yoga or Zumba.
Now, I love a good yoga class as much as the next wannabe yogi, but I prefer it hot.. as in over 100 degrees.. sadly not something that 24hr Fitness offers.
So, Zumba it was.
And I am happy to say that the class tonight, taught by April at Bellevue 24hr, was pretty darn good! I had fun with more challenging moves than I've seen in the past, and I actually left sweating.
Sweating is, as far as I'm concerned, the true test to whether I worked out or not. I just don't feel right if I don't.
The class tonight also offered a great ab workout; no crunches or planks (boo planks), but more similar to the type you would experience in a Turbokick class. Standing crunches if you will.. and I will!
All in all, a good evening.
And before some of you scoff at my dinner choice, saying that it's not enough for a real meal let me break it down first:
Seaweed Snack (!): 60 Calories
Roasted Broc: Broccoli: 100 Calories
Olive Oil: 112 Calories/13.5g Fat
Nutritional Yeast: 45ish Calories/1g Fat/5g Carbs/4g Fiber/8g Protein
Coconut Butter: 180 Calories/18g Fat/8g Carbs/6g Fiber/ 2g Protein
497 Calories/lots of fat/10g Fiber/10g Protein
A hefty meal for sure. Too much fat for one meal also, but that darn coconut butter is so hard to put down!!!
Happy Tuesday Friends.
