Cookies and Cream

Happy Friday! So yesterday was very busy for me. I had apts from 9am till 7:30pm. Whew...Thank goodness I got my errands done on Wednesday! One of the errands on the list: Pick up protein powder. Right now Im still getting 2 protein shakes a day but as it gets closer Im sure those will be phased out. But for now Im enjoying them. We usually use Twinlab Lean Muscle in Vanilla, but last month Complete Nutrition had their Grand Opening here in town so we checked it out. The sale was buy one get one, we bought the Pro Complete Titian and have been really enjoying it. It has flax in it so that makes it very filling, which I like because I get so hungry between meal. However, the only draw back is the price. It's one of the more expensive proteins that we have tried. Wednesday, while perusing the protein offerings at our local Vitamin Shoppe I talked Joshua into getting Syntrax Matrix Cookies and Cream. It has the same nutritional value of our Titan and the Twinlab so no issues there. When we got home we just had to dig in and try it. I used it in place of my last meal. Luckily for me I hadn't had a protein shake all day so this was a definite treat.
Joshua made his first and as soon I heard MMMM and then "Baby! Your gonna love this stuff" I knew it was going to be GOOD! And it was. It had these little bits of what are supposed to be cookie pieces but I don't think they are. Very yum. I also added 3 egg whites to it because that makes it creamy like a milkshake. I know raw eggs right? But don't knock it till you try it. I always thought it would be slimy but it's not at all!

After the Cookies and Cream shake I decided it was time for me to try to make a batch of the famous Kale Chips that everyone raves about. Yea just not my thing... They just tasted like burnt veggies.. I don't know. Maybe I didn't do it right. We have another whole bag of them so Ill practice over the weekend.

Tomorrow morning marks 7 weeks out so you know what that means..... Progress pics! In my new SUIT! Exciting stuff ;-)

See yall in the AM!
