OT - Tone-up Tuesday
It's Tuesday again, STalkers! How goes the toning? I looked in the mirror and realized that, in a swimsuit, I look like a potato: pasty white and round with splashes of color in the middle. Just the look I was striving for....NOT!!!
I went to the doctor and stepped on the dreaded scale (after removing my 50-lb boots and 20-lb wallet). Turns out I have actually lost 6.5 pounds. Surprise!!! Since I am still NOT working out and am constantly exhausted, I have to attribute that to my on-the-fly breakfast substitute: a protein shake.
I am a MUST HAVE BREAKFAST person, but I don't always have time to eat - and there is NO way I'm hauling my hiney out of bed earlier to cook/eat breakfast. I typically eat breakfast at work (oatmeal or cereal, but don't always have the time. The last 2 weeks, I've skipped chewing and gone with drinking (no, unfortunately, my coffee is NOT spiked).
My favorite protein shakes:
- Atkins Vanilla OR Dark Chocolate Royale (15 grams of protein. BONUS: only 1 gram of sugar!)
- Core Power Hight Protein Milk Shake - Vanilla (26 grams of protein)
- Ideal Lean mixed with skim milk (32 grams of protein)
I also grab an Atkins shake when I know I'll have a long gap between meals. What do you do when your body needs fuel and you don't have time to sit down and eat?
