I am SO HAPPY for today's workout!
Compared to some of the conditioning workouts last week, this workout is going to be FUN.
I really felt relieved when I read this was the workout today.
The Protein Dilemma
When I started this blog, I had 1 goal in mind and it was to lose weight and get skinny
Since then, I have really been learning ALLOT about being healthy.
To my understanding, being healthy and being skinny can sometimes mean two different things!
I want to be STRONG & HEALTHY & FIT.
(not just skinny anymore)
So I have been talking to my bodybuilder brother, Dad, CrossFit obsessed boyfriend & researching the benefits:
of using protein powder!!
My family buys it in bulk from Costco:
(this is what they just bought yesterday)
My dad and brother have been using protein powder for YEARS.
I literally do not remember a time when we never had any in our pantry!
I have always been afraid to use it.
I thought it would make me gain weight!!! (fat, not muscle)
After learning everything I have recently learned about protein powder, I have decided to give it a try!
I made this protein shake today ahead of time - you have like 15-30 minutes to drink it right after your workout?
Basically Protein Powder can be SUPER beneficial.
I can't believe I never tried using it before!
Here are some of the benefits I am hoping to get out of it:
-Build Muscle Mass
Regulate Metabolism - I read that one online. It is actually beneficial for weight-loss!
What is your take on protein?
Do you use protein after you workout?
