Protein High

Well, I finally made it to GNC and picked up some Vanilla protein powder and I picked up one of those protein tube shots. Going to try both tomorrow, so we'll see. I forgot to get pudding though to add to the powder, so I'm thinking maybe I'll skip that b/c if I do just vanilla and it tastes bad I'm going to just mentally think everything no matter what flavor tastes bad! Anyways, scale isn't moving, but I haven't either. I drove to Texas and back last week for a funeral, so I didn't work out Wed/Thurs/Fri, then I went back to work on Sat and worked Sat/Sun/Mon then today ran errands and did grocers shopping. Hitting the gym tomorrow though! :) Will post about the protein shot tomorrow...it's 110 calories and like 25 grams of protein.

Feeling Blah

So I'm bummed b/c I've been busting my butt working out and I haven't lost anything! My eating hasn't changed either, so I'm not sure if I'm building muscle and that's the reason, or if my body just doesn't want to give up any more pounds! I think I'm going to start doing Slimfast once a day and a protein bar once a day then a normal dinner and I'm really going to try and stop snacking. I think that is what's killing me. If I didn't snack I'd probably be 130 by now. Anyways, that's my goal...we'll see. I think I'm going to try the other Amber's Banana Cream Pie Shake...it sounds good, but after watching Susy's video on sugar substitute, I'm going to just go with the regular pudding. Anyways......nothing really new to report, just feeling blah today for some reason, didn't have time to work out so maybe that's why.

Whey Liquid Protein

Do you guys know anything about this stuff? It looks too good to be true! I get maybe 30g of protein a day which I know is way way bad, but I don't eat meat and I don't like protein shakes. I'm thinking if I did one of these a day it'd bump me to close to where I should be, plus it might help me with those last few pounds! I'd love feedback and opinions from anyone before I go spend $40 on this stuff!

Worked out today, OMG, I walked/ran at a 5 incline, what a difference from the 3 incline! Thought I was gonna die! Also did the ellipticle and weights......getting nice and buff under all this flab! LOL

Tuesday Tuesday

Nothing really new, our BBQ yesterday went nice. We only ended up with about 14 people which was nice. We did chicken and sausage. It was yummy but totally crazy. You know no matter how much you try and organize and plan so you can visit, you still end up running around like a chicken without a head! I finished cleaning up the house this morning, then went to my dads to work out. We took the ellipticle over there yesterday since I never use it here. So, when I worked out today, I did 1 mile on the treadmill (Incline 3, walked 1/4 at 3.5, ran 1/4 at 5, ran 1/4 at 3.5, ran 1/4 at 5, then 5.5, then 6)...then after that I did a 1/2 mile on the ellipticle at an incline of 15 and resistance of 4. Then I lifted weights and did some situps. I probably won't be able to walk tomorrow! I'm going to work out again tomorrow. The doctor gave me the OK to start lifting on my arms, so tomorrow I'll probably do that. It's been a long time since I've lifted on arms. I ate soso today. We had leftover pizza in the house, so I ate the last slice for lunch today, then I snacked on some Hillshire Farm Beef Summer Sausage and Cheese. Other that that and a few dove chocolates I did pretty good. I had a protein bar for breakfast, it was good. I'll have to look up the brand. It was only 170 calories and very little sugar. Anyways, that's it for now! I'm going to try and post at least 2 times a week!
