My First Experience with Whey Protein Powder: Jillian Michael’s Whey Protein Powder Vanilla flavor

Posted Mar 31 2011 12:00am

I can’t believe it’s Thursday already. This week has flown by. It’s been busy and I haven’t had much time just to relax. Things should start slowing down for me for the week now.

I was happy when I weighed this morning to see that my weight had stayed steady. I gained .6, but that’s nothing- and totally a daily fluctuation. So hopefully I can keep this up!

For breakfast, I focused on protein. I had an omelet made of 1/2 cup of liquid egg whites, 2% sharp cheddar cheese, and deli chicken breast. I also had a banana and a cup of 1% milk for 8 points total.

Not the prettiest picture but what a filling breakfast!

On my way to class, I drank a green smoothie (2 oranges, 1 cup spinach). I was anxious to try out protein powder for the first time. I picked up Jillian Michael’s Whey protein powder- vanilla flavor. It was good. I didn’t notice an after taste at all. But it did mask the flavor of my fruit, which was too bad. But the vanilla flavor was delicious-It was creamy and satisfying- makes me wonder what the chocolate would taste like. Winking smile This was 3 points.

It kept me full up until lunch time for sure- which was nice!

For lunch, I ate a salad made of lettuce, spinach, avocado, tomato, a boiled egg, deli chicken, feta cheese, cashews and light ranch for 11 points.

For a little sweet ending, I had 1/2 of a AE Dairy Greek Clementine yogurt for 2 points.

Before signing in to work, I made myself a cup of coffee with half and half for 1 point.

Work went quickly today. After work, I tried to figure out what courses I want to take next semester, but they’ve changed the system and it was impossible to find courses. I seriously looked for 2 hours and I’m still not totally sure what I’m doing. But I’ll get it figured out!

When I was hungry, I ate supper. Usually by the time I get off of work I am famished, but lately- I just haven’t felt like eating- which is weird for me. And I just wait and eventually I get hungry. This is new to me! Winking smile

I baked a Tyson all natural breaded chicken patty, topped with alfredo sauce and with a side of broccoli for 7 points.

YUM! And for dessert, I had a cup of strawberries topped with 1/2 serving chocolate syrup for 1 point.

And I am right at my points target for the day! I did a really good job with my percentages today- 41.56% Carbs, 29.97% Fat, and 28.47% Protein. I’m going for 40-30-30- so that’s really close!

I couldn’t be happier that tomorrow is Friday and hubby is coming home. This has been a hard week and I’m really missing him! There’s something stress relieving about hugs from hubby- and I miss that! At least week 1 is down and hopefully only 3 more to go! The semester is staring to come to a close and that gets stressful. I have a big project to work on with a partner- so I have that to get started this weekend. I’ll feel better once we have a plan.

But for now- I’m going to forget everything for a little while and just relax. I started watching Season 1 of 30 Rock the other day- and I think I might watch some more of it and get some laughs in. We all need to take some time for ourselves every once in a while! Smile
