I completely planned on going to the gym yesterday – until I woke up and realized that I had never felt the front of my thighs “burn” as bad as they did! That 25 minutes Core & Balance video I found on On-Demand kicked my butt (or shall I say thighs?). Seriously! I actually secretly liked the burn…it reminded me every time I walked up and down the stairs, heck every time I WALKED, that I worked out on Sunday. So, I skipped yesterday (and then I skipped today). Tomorrow, barring any unforeseen meetings or emergencies, my butt (and thighs) are back in the gym!
Today I tried a protein shake for the first time ever. I, of course, consulted my friend and co-worker on this new endeavor. Max is super healthy, works out like mad, has tried training with me during lunch (I have a scar on my knee to prove it LOL), and humors me and my daily “new healthy idea”. Today – a chocolate protein shake from an unnamed company that my friend represents. I showed Max what I was interested in sampling – he checked it out, saying it was very healthy (translation – yucky tasting?) and I requested a sample packet of the chocolate and vanilla.
I was so apprehensive to try this shake that I truly wanted to like. I was told that it didn’t have the typical protein shake aftertaste (what about the “during-taste”?). OK…fast forward. Max prepares the shake, I take a sip. I give the rest to Max. I tried it…I did, and Max (you had a better comment on my blog this time) was my witness. I think I am going to stick with the Zone Bar in Chocolate Caramel Cluster. MMMMMMMMMM 🙂 Delish!
