So you wanna drink protein drinks ladies?

Good morning! And Happy Sunday! I hope you all have had a beautiful start to your day!

This morning, before running out the door to the gym, I made a protein shake. I want to add more of these into my diet to help control my appetite I’ll let you know how it goes! I also added a scoop if this berry Green supplement just for the vitamins. I have to make this again to let you know about the taste, because it wasn’t that yummy (okay, but not great) with the two together, but I think that’s because I didn’t fully mix it (see below about Aria review it’s great alone!)

After I made the shake, I ran out the door to make it for a morning Step class. As SOON as I showed up, I got a text from the woman I nanny for asking if I wanted to go to church with her. I instantly left the gym and ran home to get ready. I really wanted to go today! It was really good, and felt more like a little seminar to me ๐Ÿ™‚

When I came home I made an open-faced tuna sandwich, with some yummy carrots on the side. I like onion on my tuna sandwiches, and I also like barely toasted sourdough bread. Ah! Perfect ๐Ÿ™‚

I just had a thought… could I made tuna with greek yogurt and seasoning, instead of mayo? That would be so much healthier! I’ll have to look into it!

After lunch, I really wanted another protein shake because it sounded super vanilla-y and good! This time, I shook it up a ton in that little jar, and mixed in with unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Bamb! SO good! This is now going to be a snack for me. Two scoops of the powder only has 80 calories, and ย 8 ozย of unsweetened vanilla almond milk only has 40, that’s a 120 calorie snack that’s going to hold me over for a long time, conquer my sweet tooth, taste like a treat, and make me feel good! I like it ๐Ÿ™‚

See you all back here just a bit later! I’m heading out to Barnes and Nobles to buy a new book that I’ve wanted to read ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lady, I love reading your blog but there is something that really bothers me and I felt like sharing it with you. You say you need to control your appetite : You don’t ! It feels like you over analyze what/how much you eat. I know how we can slip from healthy eating to having too much control, especially when you have a blog to keep track of everything. From an exterior perspective it is irritating to read after EACH meal that your are satisfied. We are all made different but I really wonder how you can get full after half of a Larrabar ( its just an example that I had in mind ) .
    I feel like you need a way more instinctive and natural approach to food or portions, take more risks, read less about it, go for your cravings, etc …
    I’m not trying to tell you what to do or think or even eat, it’s just that I can relate a LOT to having a constant stress about food ( I know those stomach pains too well ! ), and all I read here makes me instantly want to somehow letting you know that things can be different. I’m on this journey myself, learning that the most important is to keep nutrition as natural as possible.
    I hope you won’t find this message too prevention or offensive, because it’s not how I want you to see it. I love your blog !

    • Hi Julie! Thank you for writing! First of all, don’t ever feel bad to write me and let me know if something on my blog is bothering you! I am very glad that you are letting me know, because I am sure you aren’t the only one thinking that. You are probably right, that lately, I have been over analyzing what I eat more than I should. I admit that my eating habits aren’t as wonderful as when I first started the blog (mentally), and I, with all of my heart, would love to get back to that place (I have been so much better even just today, just freeing myself of anything that would make me feel bad). I will tell you though, I am dong what I can to help myself. Doing things like putting away my scale, just eating healthy and exercising and letting my body weigh what it wants (not restricting anything in order to lose weight). About the protein powder, I really just wanted something that felt light to have as a snack that had protein in it to hold me over- I don’t like the feeling of being “full,” I much rather prefer to have “just enough,” plus, I am on the go A LOT and need something that’s going to last a while. I say “satisfied” so much (maybe too much), because the way I eat, I have lots of small things throughout the day. I don’t eat 3 big meals, because my body doesn’t work well like that (I get tired, etc.). I hope that I come off as soft as I can, as I completely understand where you are coming from, and accept that you are right about me being too hard on myself lately. Thank you for your input; you are very honest and I appreciate you writing to me. Please add anything you might have questions about. For now, have a great rest of the day, and thank you for being a loyal follower ๐Ÿ™‚
