Cardio Tennis

Posted Oct 21 2008 12:14am
Happy Friday!

I took an hour-long cardio tennis ( ) class at the club this morning, which is basically a set of high energy tennis drills. T-O-U-G-H indeed! One girl was wearing a heart monitor watch, which showed that she burned a little under 500 calories. I'm not sure if I got the same benefit, but anywhere in the general vicinity of that would be fine with me!

1 Propel
1 c. Quaker Oatmeal Squares

Post-Tennis Snack
1/2 c. cottage cheese
1 c. pineapple

vegetable soup
1 whole wheat bagel square
3 slices chicken
1 slice cheese
lettuce, tomato, mustard

*2 chicken nuggets

*Are you thinking that chicken nuggets are an unusual healthy snack choice? Me too! I knew that the kids would not like what I was making for dinner, so I made them chicken nuggets in the oven, macaroni and cheese, and carrots with dip. When the nuggets were done, I caught myself walking by the tray and eating them. Mindless eating, but fortunately, I stopped at two!

*Green beans (boiled in chicken broth for eight minutes, drained, mixed with red wine vinegar, brown mustard, two dashes of Tabasco, and Worsechetsire)
1 c. spaghetti w/ Smart Balance spread and grated parmesan
12 small grilled shrimp (marinated for most of the day in lemon, garlic, onion, salt & pepper)
1 kids cup of lowfat frozen yogurt from Baskin Robbins

*I have to be honest...I do not like string beans straight up. But, I do not like to waste food even more, and I had string beans left over from making vegetable soup. I found a recipe in The Joy of Cooking, tweaked it a bit, and really liked how these turned out.
