I don’t know why, but today feels like it should be Friday. Not because I’m tired of work… well I am just a little. But because I’m just in a great mood today and ready for more free time to play. Hopefully the weather will behave this weekend for a little outdoor fun. Until then, there’s always indoor fun. A couple of people have asked me what SkyRobics is and well, it’s this:
This is a video from the actual SkyZone gym I’ve gone to and I’ve taken a few of Anthony’s classes and a few classes from other instructors. SkyRobics is an hour long class of non-stop aerobics on this trampoline course and I’ve heard you could burn up to 1,000 calories in that hour. At first, I thought there’s no way considering I can’t burn that much running for an hour, but after taking a class for the first time and barely being able to walk the next day, I’m thinking that it’s possible. Going non-stop on a trampoline doing various exercises, ball tosses, and laps around the court is very intense working just about every muscle.
What I love about the class is it’s an amazing workout disguised as childish, free-spirited fun. I can go and have a blast blowing off steam and having fun after a busy day stuck at my desk. One of my goals is to get to one of these classes a week for the next few months and hopefully most of this year if I can afford it. I think it can do wonders tightening up my leg and butt muscles and really help my running. That’s not going to be easy while training for another half-marathon in March, so I need to schedule enough rest time having one day each week to rest – usually Friday for me. But it seems like a fun challenge. If you have a trampoline gym like this near you, try a class like this.
Anyway, I went fast and simple for dinner tonight creating an opened-face hummus sandwich.
I smeared Trader Joe’s hummus on a small piece of sourdough bread, topped with avocado slices, tomato slices and spinach.
It was a fun, simple dinner that’s customizable with any hummus flavor or a raw sauce.
I’ve never been a fan of traditional, closed sandwiches because they always seemed so heavy and bulky. But I’m a fan of two smaller open-faced sandwiches because there are two halves to eat that can be mixed and matched with different flavors. I can see myself doing this with more raw breads in future. And my light dinner saved room for a little dessert which I invited two of my favorite ingredients to.
Yup, banana soft serve again, it never gets old. I just dumped about half a cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, about 1 1/2 banana’s worth of frozen banana chunks, 2 packets of stevia, a tbsp. of lucuma powder and 2 tbsp. of cacao powder into the Vita-Mix for a quick dessert.
I think I can throw this together now faster than actually scooping traditional ice cream from a container!
