I felt like I was drinking a real man shake. 😉
Ryan drinks several protein shakes a day out of these cups. He gets them for free when he buys exorbitant amounts of protein online, so we have about a billion of them.
Apparently I added an entire bush-worth of spinach to my green monster smoothie today because it was ginormous, as Buddy the Elf would say.
Into the mix went:
- Tons o’ spinach
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 scoop All the Whey chocolate peanut butter cup protein powder
- Almond Breeze almond milk
- 1 tbsp. peanut butter
- 1 tsp. Bob’s Red Mill xanthan gum
- 1 tbsp. cocoa powder
It was thick, filling and, of course, terribly unattractive and green.
I know I’ve said it before, but I love the way I feel after downing one of these bad boys. Cheesy as it sounds, they make me feel alive! It’s probably all in my head, but I’ll take it! 😀
Today’s BodyPump class was emptyyy. Apparently no one was feelin’ the gym today, because there were less than half the amount of people who are normally there in class this morning.
I actually missed the energy of a packed class! I like the “we’re all in this together” feeling I usually get during such an early morning group exercise class and I missed it a bit today. Still, the instructor did a great job, as always, and I got a good workout. Success!
After Pumpin’ it up, I did 25 minutes of light cardio on the elliptical while reading about the latest celebrity trash. I think those celebrity gossip magazines are great gym reading material because they’re basically like picture books! Since it can be hard to read while working out, they’re a perfect fit.
Do you like celebrity gossip magazines?
I used to try and hide it, but who am I kidding? I love that stuff. Do I care that Carrie Underwood is engaged. Yes, I do. 🙂
