As we mentioned last week, we are changing our Buninyong evening sessions to an earlier start now that we don’t have to wait for the gym to be free.
After putting it to a vote the overwhelming response was “the earlier the better”! So 6.30pm it is!! This will give us a bit more daylight, avoid the onslaught of mosquitoes and most importantly get home earlier to eat dinner!! If you’re in a bind with the kids because of the earlier start, they can come along while we’re outside, as long as they are clear of the workout area, for their safety and yours.
In case of bad weather on Monday nights we will use the under cover area at the footy ground if it’s not in use. We will always put a whiteboard at the soccer pitch to let you know where to go on these occasions. With the weather forecast not looking good for tomorrow we will probably be up there, possibly on the netball court for our Metafit session.
We haven’t talked nutrition for a while, so I thought I would get on your back again as we wind our way back into bikini/mankini season. It is important that we take on fuel at regular intervals throughout the day to keep our metabolism firing, our energy levels up and to prevent us from overeating when we are starving later on in the day. Below are some easy protein packed snack ideas to take to work or grab from the fridge/pantry in a hurry.
1. Greek Yoghurt
2. Hard Boiled Egg
3. Hommus Dip with Veg
4. Dried Fruit/Nuts (just a handful)
5. Dates with natural Peanut Butter
6. Sliced Apple with cheese
7. Pre-soaked oats/chia seeds (in coconut/almond milk) add berries for flavour
