What a busy day for a Friday!
After training my first morning client, I stopped by my gym to get in an hour strength workout. I started it with some mobility work, then moved on to plank work, and finished it up with a full body workout. Actually, I finished it up with a 20 minute walk with Niko
I planned on having a smoothie after working out for my second breakfast, but instead I wanted something I could actually chew. Since I’m apparently on a protein powder kick lately (ROAR!) I went with cereal + protein powder milk:
I just whisked the almond milk + pp in a cup, and then poured that milk on top of some quaker oats squares + Kashi cereal.
I had this, plus another handful of the Kashi cereal on top.
I’m not sure what’s with me and getting protein from non whole foods lately, but I’m all over it. Perhaps it’s because I now have 3 bags of Sun Warriar in my pantry thanks to OpenSky’s “mistake?"
As if 3 bags weren’t enough, I picked up a pack of Muscle Milk Light at Sam’s today:
It’s totally not like me to buy protein as…weird ingredient-y as Muscle Milk, but it tastes good, is convenient and RTD (ready to drink,) and Shane likes it too. Shane’s been lifting a lot lately, and is way more likely to get in some protein after a workout if it’s grab and go.
At least it’s sugar free?
Meh. I also like Snicker’s Marathon bars. So there’s that, too.
At least my lunch was real food!
Stir fry leftovers, which was probably on its last day of being considered edible. It still tasted delicious!
This energy carried me through the next hour, which proved to be a very tough hour. Niko and Clarabelle were both due for shots, so I figured why not take them together?
Let’s just say Niko was a peach (she got THREE shots, and didn’t even bat an eye!) but Clarabelle on the other hand…
I thought she was going to pass out! Poor thing was panting, hissing, and howling until we got back in the car for a ride home. Plus, it was hard juggling both of them at the same appointment! I almost felt like a mother of multiple kids!
The “kids” got canned food (Wellness brand) as their reward, but I thought I deserved a reward too!
dumbbell double cake pop? I’ll take it! I made it so it’d look like a dumbbell
And now I’m off to train my last client of the day. It’s a doozy! Business is a-boomin.
Do you eat/drink protein powder? Which kind do you use and in what forms? (half way stealing Natalie’s question from the other day)
Pet owners: how do your pets do at the vet?
Happy Friday, my dear friends!!
