Friday Night Lights

I’ve been out of high school for quite a long time, but my dad still announces the football games… and so I decided to pay a visit to my old stomping grounds!

Before I headed off, I was pretty hungry and didn’t want to stoop to eating concession-food.  Yuck.  I made a power-packed salad that I literally couldn’t finish.


In the mix:  hummus (best dressing ever), baby carrots, green olives, slivered almonds, chunked chicken breast, hard-boiled egg, mixed leaf lettuce, dill pickle and a dash of sweet peas!


I also drink the equivalent of four of those water bottles a day.  I take it with me everywhere.

Right, moving on to the football!



Hey, Dad!


Trying our best to be really, really excited… (I think it’s working)



Work it out!

My legs are a bit stiff from yesterday’s workout (which had me a sweaty, sweaty mess).  I ended up doing 10/8/8/8lbs for the step-ups, 15/20/20/20lbs for the swings and bodyweight for the squats.  On the elliptical, I was at level 7 for sprints, and 4 for moderate.

Today’s looks like…

1 minute, each exercise:

  • Starjumps
  • Kettlebell/DB Swings
  • Skaters
  • Squat with medicine ball
  • Plank jacks
  • Bicep curls
  • Back lunge with kick
  • Bicycle crunches
  • Knee-ups (30sec each side)

If you have any questions about the form of each one, let me know!  I felt like combining my strength and cardio today, so here’s to interval training!
