Note to self: After drinking your E&E, go push play, immediately after going to the bathroom(jumping jacks get me every time if I don’t.) If you don’t you will find 10 other things to half way do and waste a bunch of time. Then you will be hungry and working out and then when you are done and try to talk to people, YOU WILL BE HANGRY!
I’ve somehow broken out of the wake up and eat breakfast routine, which is fine if I workout right way. Not so much if I wait till 8. So grateful for fresh produce today so tomorrow I can chow down a banana and my pre-workout, hopefully that will help me push through it.
I maxed out at 12:19 today, last week I was 11:16, I’ll take that minute and three seconds!
Lets talk protein powders. So far I have fallen in love with Beachbody’s Performance Line. The Recover and Recharge shakes are AMAZING! They blend so smooth and taste really good. If you’ve ever had a protein shake you know that that’s hard to find. If you aren’t vegan and looking for a protein supplement, I back those 100%. I never had any stomach issues coming from it now that I think about it either. But every good journey has it’s ups and downs and I decided to go vegan. So far there’s no vegan Performance Line. I started last month using a Vanilla Vegan Protein powder, it wasn’t too bad but I’ve been getting stomach aches so decided to try something new, plus the jug was almost empty and I needed to restock.
I was referred this protein powder by a friend and I have to admit it’s pretty tasty. I always look over the labels of my supplements and I love that it’s a blend of multiple proteins and not just pea or soy, and that the ingredients are simple. This one seems pretty legit and it has 21 grams of protein. Same amount as most Average Joe, whey proteins. If you’re curious about the different types of proteins, I found this blog on the different protein types you might find interesting.
Orgain Organic Protein Blend (organic pea protein, organic brown rice protein, organic chia seed, organic hemp protein), organic creamer base (organice acacia gum, organic high oleic sunflower oil, organic inulin, organic rice dextrins, organic rice bran extract, organic rosemary extract), organic erythritol, organic cocoa, organic natural flavors, sea salt, organic acacia gum, organic guar gum, xanthan gum, organic stevia, monkfruit extract.
I’m excited to see how this one makes me feel. Today is day one of the new shake. Wish my belly luck. Time to finish checking things off today’s to-do list!
