Happy Thursday! I felt much better yesterday, which must have had something to do with all those well wishes. Thanks a bunch!
Today is my leg day, but it’s nothing too crazy. To be honest, I used to feel like this while working out (insert any BAMF here)…
but now I feel more like this – only not so tan.
Okay – I don’t actually have belly like that, but I’m just happy I held onto some of my old soccer shirts so that I don’t have to be shimmying into spandex every morning. Ahhhh, yes – gotta love baggy clothes. In case anyone was wondering, I’m actually more like this in the gym right now. (I took this sneaky selfie yesterday to show the bump!)
I worked out on my lunch break and had another spring salad afterwards. I still got my protein for the day with protein oats for breakfast and a protein bar for snack, a Quest Nutrition protein bar to be exact.
Not tooooo long ago, Quest kindly sent me a mixed case of goodies to try, along with their new-ish pb cups, as part of their campaign with FitFluential. I believe I mentioned receiving them, but now that I’ve tried more flavors, here are some thoughts.
I prefer the natural line, and so does my belly. However, the others are good too. My favorite of the original line is Chocolate Brownie, and my favorite of the natural line is Banana Nut Muffin, though Strawberry Cheesecake is quite tasty too. I must admit, I’m not really a fan of the pb cups (die-hard Reese’s lover over here).
They’ve got loads of protein, are incredibly low-carb, and are packed with fiber. What’s not to love?
