I love my dog. She makes me happy.
As tempted as I was to take a BodyPump class this morning, I stuck with my guns and did my own total-body weights routine. My muscles need some shockin’ since I’ve been in the same routine for a while now.
After a quick 25-minute warm up on the elliptical, I hit the weight room for the following workout:
Those step ups got my heart pounding!
After the gym, I took Sadie on a quick walk before making a yummy breakfast smoothie.
I love Starbucks Frappuccinos and was determined to create my own this morning.
I made myself a banana mocha frappuccino by blending the following:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1.5 Nescafe instant coffee packets
- 5 ice cubes
- Cold water
- Approximately 2 tsp. xanthan gum
The mix was thick and creamy and had a nice little kick to it from the instant coffee.
After filling up my tumbler to the brim, I still had quite a bit leftover and tilted the ol’ blender back to get the rest.
My mock-Frappuccino was quite tasty and had a lot more protein than the Starbucks version to keep me full until snacktime. Score!
Do you like coffee drinks? Any favorites?
My favorite coffee drink is the Starbucks light mocha Frappuccino or the light pumpkin spice Frappuccino (which I reviewed here). Both are phenomenal!
