This post is a bit all over the place, so I’m just going to jump on in there.
1- Yesterday’s workout was a short run and 50 minutes of yoga. The first yoga video was core focused, and the second one was a heart opening sequence. You can find it on YouTube here.
2 – Even though yesterday’s strength training was done on a yoga mat, I still got some quality protein. Okay, I haven’t actually tried this protein yet, but it did arrive on my doorstep. Thanks for hosting the giveaway Nichole!
3 – Really though, I did get some protein. I created this little bowl of yum for afternoon snack. It’s pumpkin protein pudding!
The fiber, fat and protein between the pumpkin, chia and whey help keep you full. I don’t really recommend the walnut and raisin topping for their macros, but they’re cute on top!
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 scoop vanilla protein
I decided not to add nutritional info because this depends so heavily on the milk and the protein you use. I tried it with vanilla almond milk and with dairy skim milk, and the dairy milk was much better. It’s kind of like the filling of pumpkin pie.
4 – On a side note, I had two great meals yesterday. I owe one to blue cheese dressing and one to Trader Joe’s red curry sauce. The salads I’ve been having for lunch this week have been awful, so yesterday I used Kevin’s not-light, not-healthy, super-yummy dressing. Worth it!
Happy Friday! What are you looking forward to this weekend?
