First off all, I want to say congratulations to my sister Cerina who got accepted into a Cosmetology course! She got accepted into a program at the same school where I did nursing school..woohoo! She practiced her skills on me last night- isn’t she good?
Imagine if she’s that talented now, what will she be able to do after the course?
Anyway, I’m glad you enjoyed my Protein Post yesterday! A lot of you were asking for my recommendations for proteins so I thought I’d start out today’s post with a list of all of the protein-powders that I’ve tried, and my thoughts on them.
Hmm.. I’m sure I’ve tried more than that but those are the ones I could think of off the top of my head!
So this morning I naturally started off my day with my usual 50 grams of oatbran and 30 grams of Dymatize Banana protein powder.
And then I went to the gym for my Shoulders/Triceps workout. It was pretty good.. although I did tweak my shoulder! I should have done a warm up but I was too stubborn and twisted my arm. Yet, I kept working out. I know, I know, do as I say, not as I do! Anyway, here was the workout:
After that I read some of a new book I bought! It’s called “The Pact”. It’s really good so far! Before my Microbiology class I made my next meal- Mock Zucchini Bread French Toast! Just the usual Mock French Toast recipe but with the addition of 80 grams of shredded zucchini, 1 tsp bee pollen, and one tablespoon of almond butter:
My Microbiology class was pretty interesting today! We were learning about viruses, how they invade, food contamination, etc.
When I got home I had one thing on my mind- kabocha squashed snack ! However, I didn’t have quite enough kabocha. So I improvised and made Peanut Butter Beta Carotene Mash! LOL. I blended up 60 grams of roasted kabocha, 1.85 oz baked sweet potato, 1/2 serving Muscle Gauge Peanut Butter protein powder, 1/3 cup water, 1 tbsp Naturally More peanut butter, cinnamon, ginger, and guar gum:
Realizing I was running short on cals, I snacked on an additional 4 oz of all natural, preservative and sodium-free (from our local meat market) turkey breast with wasabi:
And pre-Tabata I snacked on 1/2 cup 0% Fage mixed with Capella Pralines and Cream flavor drops, 1 tbsp flaxmeal, cinnamon, ginger, and stevia:
My sister and I didn’t feel like driving to the gym tonight so we did Tabata at home! We did a 5 minute warm-up jog around the neighborhood, then proceeded to do the 16 minutes of Tabata. A 10 minute walking cool down later, and I burned an additional 300 cals!
For dinner, I had my favorite cabbage stir-fry of all time: 285 grams of cabbage (ALOT- like 6 cups maybe?) with 3.5 oz cooked lean ground bison, fresh New Mexico green chilies, and New Mexico pureed red chili peppers. Plus 1/2 oz pepitas:
Totals after dinner (cals/protein/carbs/fat): 1590/187/100/34
