I woke up this morning and did 30 minutes on the elliptical with increased incline...and breakfast. Miniwheats are sooooooo good. And I feel absolutely amazing. I really do.
Totally off topic, I must to make a plug for goat milk soap. I have the driest of dry skin and in the winter I'm always dry and feel like my skin is too tight. Someone suggested goat milk soap for me and I bought some and tried it...It feels so nice! My skin is all soft and not dry at all. Hooray for goats and hooray for goat milk I say.
J and I decided, besides more veggies and fruit, we are going to try protein shakes after workouts. We both usually drink a glass of flavoured milk or a fruit smoothie after a workout (OK, more him really...I often am running late and wait til I'm at work as I get here way early on the bus and have something here. He works out after work so he has the time). I figured, why not try out the vanilla flavoured power/protein shakes you can get instead of coffee/vanilla flavoured milk. A friend of ours drank them after working out while on the Body for Life program and said it really helped her body add/tone muscles and gave her body fuel after a workout, so she didn't crave stuff later in the day. I figure it's better for us than a glass of flavoured milk...but have NO idea what ones taste good. At the local Sangsters alone there are 4 kinds...I figure we'll try it with our workouts for a few months and see what happens.
Anyone tried any good protein shakes? I'm not a chocolate fan, but if you know of a good vanilla mix out there, I'm all over the fake vanilla flavour! I'd be grateful for any points in the right direction.
