Fitness Friday!

Fuel for your workout!

Here is an article from msnbc about what to eat for a workout. I, personally, like to eat about 30-60mins before a big workout (e.g. kickboxing)...but I often throw something in my mouth on the way to the gym. Afterwards, I make sure to drink lots of water and eat a well balanced meal. I also opt for a glass of OJ, cow or soy milk instead of Gatorade.

I like...
*whole grain fig newtons
*Caramel Nut Brownie Luna Bars (I buy them in bulk from Amazon or on sale at Target)
*1/2 PB&J
*Handful of almonds
*Shredded wheat (non-sugared minis)
*Smoothie (but only 8oz and at least 30mins before)
*Nutrigrain or granola bar
*Hard boiled egg (I make some each week and leave them in the frig)
