Too delicious to be Whey

At work I like talking to my group of friends about every thing.

I have some friends in Maintenance that work out and know a lot about fitness. So I always go to them about work out advice or even eating plans. Yesterday I was complaining to one of my friends about how much I hate drinking protein shakes. I told him that I hate the chalkiness of the powder and that it never taste like what it says.

He mentioned that I should add some things to my shake instead of the typical milk and ice. So he went on to tell me about one of his daughters favorite protein shakes he makes her.

All you need to add in one banana and some peanut butter. This morning I decided to give it a try and I was pretty happy with the results.

I first put in a little bit of warm water at the bottom to warm up the peanut butter (since its thick). Then I threw in the milk, whey protein mix, and added five ice cubes (you don’t want it watery).

Close it with the lid and blend. Bam! You got yourself a delicious protein shake.

Happy Friday

Yay its finally Friday! I’m so happy that the weekend is finally here.

Tonight I have plans to see Through the Looking Glass with my bf. I’m beyond excited to go see it. For those of you who don’t know I’m obsessed with Alice in Wonderland. So I decided to go all out for this movie and go see it in a Regal theatre. I heard that there is lazy boy chairs that recline and they bring you, your order. So you know I’ll be out the door when it hits 5:30.

 

I have already started working out and let me say that I’m really out of shape. I was trying to fit in 50 squats before my boyfriend came home and I really had to dig deep to get to 30. My boyfriend came in right when I hit 40 and I was struggling to keep myself from gasping for air lol. I didn’t want him to know I was doing a squat challenge but he figured it out. I am really going to have to get motivated now because after the first few days it got hard. I bought some protein shake packets to try out different brands before committing to one. I’ll be posting my review on that on Monday if you want to see which ones I tried and liked.

I hope you all have a fun and safe weekend!
