Today’s workout and protein shake recipe

Today was TRX again – seriously love love love it.

When I got home, I made a protein shake based on a few different recipes I’ve seen on the internet:

  • 1 scoop CrioSport 100% Whey protein in vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Trader Joe’s nonfat cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon stevia
  • 1 teaspoon Jello sugar free pudding mix in butterscotch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon xantham gum
  • however much water will fill up the rest of the cup

I put all this in my Magic Bullet cannister, give it a good shake and then blend, blend, blend.
Delicious! Perfect for my sweet tooth while actually being good for me.

Today’s carbs came from old-fashioned oatmeal, my protein bar, and fruit. I could have done better by eating some veggies.

Today’s workout – Spin

Today was spin with Charletha. I love me some Charletha. Unlike Angie’s, her classes do not depend on on the music; rather it’s just background. Charletha’s spin class is a lot of 8-counts up hills or sprinting or both, then some recovery.  It’s an equally good (but very different), spin class. I’m always drenched with sweat , panting for breath, and wobbling around on my jello legs afterward.


Monday’s workouts – TRX and spin

Same as Friday – TRX and then spin later in the afternoon. I also walked 4 miles today.

TRX was a bit more challenging today. I love that TRX can change every workout and never get old or un-challenging.

Later in the afternoon I went to Angie’s spin class – she’s just the best instructor. Since I’ve been going to spin for a few years and have had different instructors, I think timing the music to the moves is really crucial! Angie definitely does just that.

But I know from past experience that I cannot out-exercise a bad diet! Here’s today’s report.
