My routine has gone a lot like this in the past few days. Train my morning clients. Go to the gym and get my workout on. Come home to a protein shake made with greek yogurt. It is quick. It fills me up, has a ton of protein without a ton of calories, and is a great post workout recovery meal option.
Cinnamon Strawberry Banana Protein Shake
- 1 tray of ice cubes
- 1 cup of Fage Greek non-fat yogurt
- 5 strawberries
- 1/2 small banana
- 1 serving of Biochem Vanilla protein powder
- 1-2 tsp of cinnamon
- 1 cup of water
- a few dashes of Splenda (optional)
Blend this all up in the blender and there you have it.
285 Calories. 41 grams of protein. Awesome.
I use a lot of ice and water because it brings it to the consistency that I like. It makes about two of these glasses full, and I drink them both.
Pinterest. I let my lunch time be my waste-time-surfing-the-internet time. That way I can get it out of my system, and get to work after I'm done eating. Go ahead. Make fun of my re-usable straw. Everyone does. It happens to be from an awesome pack of re-usable straws my mom got me from Crate & Barrel. I LOVE them.
I always clean my blender with my quick and easy blender cleaning trick. It makes life a LOT easier.

60 minutes of intervals on the stairs it was somewhat killer on me today! I think it was because last night at like 10:00 two of my friends talked me into a quick jaunt to the gym for a run. I had already done 70 mins or cardio yesterday, but I didn't want to miss out on the party. I am really glad I didn't. It was one of the funnest runs I've had in a while. 3.5 miles at around a 8:15 pace. I wasn't mad.
November 10th: Today I am thankful for modern day appliances. What would I do without things like a blender, or my mini food processor? Who knows...
Do you allot yourself time to waste on the internet? I have to keep it scheduled or I could be unproductive online all day long! When was the last time you had fun working out? Were you with friends?
