I know the sun’s still shinin’ when I close my eyes…”
SUCH a great song. Totally sets the tone for the day. This is another GREAT “get your day started” song. Good Day by Nappy Roots. A special shout out to my friend Megan all the way down in San Antonio! Thanks for that song, gurrrrrl. 😉
So, I am seriously diggin’ this gorg-EOUS fall weather. High of 67 today. Are you kidddddding me??? Why did I order that winter running gear again? Oh yea, because Minnesota likes to play mind games with you and next week it’ll be -43 degrees. You heard it hear first.
Becca and I hit the gym for a fantastic treadmill interval workout. I used my usual interval workout; however, today I bumped it up .3 on every level. So I ran 6.3 instead of 6.0, 7.3 instead of 7.0 and 8.3 instead of 8.0. Great decision! I was def super sweaty by the end…but that’s a sure sign you’ve had a good workout! 😉
I was pretty hungry by the time I got home…and I decided some raspberry pancakes would make the perfect breakfast. And they did.
And I knew I needed to amp up the protein because I wasn’t making eggs.
Enter: THE PROTEIN SHAKE (said in a booming male voice)
I started buying this protein powder per the recommendation of my friend Rob. He’s really into fitness, was a personal trainer for YEARS…so he knows his schtuff. He recommended the “double rich chocolate.” And it’s not bad! I’ve gotten it a couple of times now. I haven’t tried any other flavors but I’m sure there are other good Gold Standard flavors. I get my protein powder from Bodybuilding.com You get a free t-shirt when you order a certain amount! They’re pretty stylish. Ask Rob! 😉
1 scoop has 120 calories and 24 grams of protein! WOW. The other thing that’s great about Gold Standard is that there are only 3g carbs and 1g sugar . The problem you’ll sometimes run into with protein powders is that there are SO many carbs and sugars that drinking it almost defeats the purpose. Not with Gold Standard!
I mix it with water and it tastes fine. It’s not “delish in a dish” by any means…but it’s the best tasting protein powder I’ve tried!
I snapped these pictures on my iPhone when I took out Darby this morning….see what I mean? So nice out!!!
Lovely downtown Minneapolis. Love this city.
Alright, I’m off to practice my oral argument! Have a GREAT morning!
