Hello and Happy Monday!
I thought today we would kick off the first Monday of May to be all about fitness and health!! Sound boring? It won’t be, I promise! There is even a giveaway, dorky pictures of me and today’s Monday smoothie, which is so rich and chocolaty, you wouldn’t even know it’s healthy!! It’s a win, win Monday!!! So let’s get things rolling with today’s recipe!! This is my Chocolate Protein Milkshake!
I get asked a lot and I mean a lot, if I can make chocolate drinks. I do, but I’m asked for more chocolate! So I came up with this simple concoction of greek yogurt, chocolate protein powder, milk and cocoa powder. This my friends is pure chocolate bliss!! It’s thick, creamy and you don’t even notice there is protein powder in it! I love that!!! Plus what I love more is that it is healthy for you and makes a great post workout smoothie! Yes chocolate after a workout is so good for you! Great for the bones, muscle recovery and heck, it’s great just drinking it, for no other reason then it tastes darn good!!
- 1 cup greek yogurt, plain
- ½ scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
- ¼ cup milk
- ¼ tsp. stevia (to taste)
- ½ cup ice
- Place all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
Now for the torture! I thought I would create a fun, quick, not boring 25 minute workout. When I was in Monterey last month, I did this workout in my hotel room. It’s great because you don’t need any equipment and you’re getting a full body workout. Plus it goes fast and I’m all about getting it done quick!! I find the exercises are pretty easy, except for the burpees and when your done you feel great, plus I burned about 200 calories doing it! Be sure to warm up before hand and stretch afterwards. Oh and feel free to repeat the circuit or some of the exercises. No rules! It’s just all about having fun and getting fit! Once your done, pat yourself on the back and go have the Chocolate Protein Milkshake! 🙂
Now time for dorky pictures of me. These pictures make me realize that I am so happy I have a hair appointment tomorrow! Ugh, my roots are showing, plain nasty!! Plus I need some serious color! lol Anyway, why am I showing you pictures of me? Because I got a new workout tank top that I just LOVE!!!!
Talk about a dork! Anyway, I got this new Uline Tank top from Albion Fit and it’s so pretty. I just love the style of it and especially the round neckline. It doesn’t even look like a workout tank top to me. I feel I could almost wear it with a black pencil skirt. The fabric is also thick and very well made. Here is the backside. Don’t mind my tan marks.
While my Husband was working on his car, I did a little shopping on Albion Fit’s website and I found some fabulous finds.
