A recent goal of mine has been not to drink more water but to ACTUALLY DRINK WATER. So, I got myself this little app and decided to drink aaaaaaall of the water. So far, as day two comes to a close, I think I’m doing fairly well :) I will succeed.

berryhealthy:

train like an olympian | do each exercise intensely for 30 seconds. move onto each move with little or no recovery time in between. once you’ve completed all the moves (4 minutes total) take a 60-90 second break and repeat set 2 to 3 more times.

I just made a yummy whey protein smoothie.  See it pictured above? ;) Just kidding, that’s something I found on google.
I really did make one though!  And it’s muy delicioso.  
It’s a fruity whey protein smoothie, and I’ll tell you the ingredients, and some of the nutritional facts.
Ingredients:
1 banana cut into chunks
1 or 2 scoops of whey protein (according to brand)
3 large strawberries
1/2 cup of skim milk
1/2 cup of ice
1/2 cup of yogurt
And that’s all!  It’s very simple.  I actually had to use 1% milk, because my sister and I had to compromise.  Here are a few nutrional facts (if you have a myfitnesspal, this is the stuff it asks for):
Calories-312
Fat-4
Protein-26
Carbs-66
The whey protein I used is the Jillian Michaels vanilla whey protein, and it’s at Walmart for $10.  
It is very good and makes quite a bit.  It almost filled up a 32 oz. cup!  And the nutrition facts are for the whole smoothie, not just like an 8 oz. serving or anything.
What’s funny is that the cup I’m using is from Fuzzy’s Tacos, and the straw I’m using is a Taco Casa one I found.  Haha, ironic.  See?  I am making healthier choices!
So all in all I did well today.  From myfitnesspal, I did good except I went over my protein by 7, which I know came from this drink.  Normally I’ll drink this after a work out, but I really just wanted to test it out and taste it and everything today, so I’m going to drink it with dinner.
