Post-Workout Grapefruit Sherbet [Recipe] + WIAW

You know it’s hot when your shoulders sweat.

At least I wipe off my bench at the gym! 

If I do cardio, I prefer to do it after I lift so I don’t get too tired.  The problem is that it’s a 10 minute jog to the gym, so I feel like I should just add on another 20 and be done with it.  Yesterday was one of those days.  By the time I arrived at the gym I was burning up and covered in sweat.

Lifting after that was hard at first, but I got into the groove.  I felt bad about being so sweaty in the weight section, but hey… it IS a gym.  And I am a good citizen of the gym world – I always use the stray to clean off my sweat puddles.  Unlike some other people.

Revisiting Strange But Good

Normalcy* has returned.

*I use that term loosely.

Vegas and I made it back from Vegas leaving the 115 degree temps behind.  The sun is out again in San Diego and it’s a balmy 75 degrees.

I feel like I'm on fire (ball). Thank you Las Vegas. 🔥

Resetting My Diet + WIAW

All good things must come to an end.

Until I figure out a way to live in Europe.

I’m a firm believer in balance and enjoying life.  Enjoying is just what we did in Greece.  There were tons of good eats, alllll the drinks, and a nice break from the gym (though we walked a LOT).  Vegas and I had a blast and soaked up every moment.  Coming off of that I have no regrets, but feel ready to get back to a healthier diet.

Spring into Strange (But Good)

I always look forward to spring.

Except the pollen.  Who knew San Diego had pollen?!

Spring food is the best.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a roasted winter squash and the orange glow that comes with it.  The lighter, fresh spring fare has my heart though.

Today’s #strangebutgood is a round up of some of my favorite spring recipes.  Some stranger than others.  All good.  In my not-so-humble opinion.

Cookies & Cream Zero Carb Protein Smoothie

I love me some protein.

Bro.

I also love cookies.  If you can combine protein and cookies, you have a winner.  When Isopure sent over their cookies & cream zero carb powder with 50 grams of 100% pure whey protein isolate I couldn’t try it fast enough.  It was perfectly timed too – after being on he road for a week I was ready to get back in the gym!

It’s About Time You Try Protein Powder 3 Ways

Peanut Butter Yogurt Bowl. Mocha Concrete Protein Shake. Pumpkin Cake Pancakes.

That’s my kind of ménage à trois!

If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time, you know I’m a protein powder enthusiast.  When About Time sent over a dream team of protein powders for me to try, I jumped at the chance.  Birthday cake, peanut butter, cinnamon swirl… I was like a kid in a candy shop.

Red Velvet Protein Shake [Recipe] + Santa Speedo Run

I ran down the street in my underwear this weekend.

It was Christmas underwear…. which makes it totally acceptable…

Atlanta holds a Santa Speedo Run every year.  I’ve always been curious and had friends who’ve run… but this year curiosity killed the cat.  I paid money to run down Peachtree Street in my undies.  Thankfully, it was a pretty warm day and the “race” was only 1.5 miles.  And it was for charity!  It was a fun way to stay active and donate to a good cause on the holidays!

Pumpkin Pie Protein Ice Cream + WIAW

Winning is my favorite thing.

Really… everything is a competition.

I saw this sign walking to a meeting yesterday and literally laughed out loud.

I was wrong

Sometimes being wrong isn’t SO bad.  I’d decided never to date again.  Vegas has ruined me.  So… I admit it.  I was wrong.

But I am still never, ever having babies.  Take that, Universe.

This WIAW I ate a whole lot random food after getting stranded an extra day out West.  First time in my life I missed a flight!  Didn’t feel like a mistake after I made it though. 😉

Blueberry Cheesecake Protein Shake + WIAW

Water makes me pee.

As it should.

I drink a TON of water.  In addition to it being a standard part of any competitor’s diets, I live in the South and it’s August.  Cold water is like gold.  There are many benefits of drinking a lot of water – I did a post on it.

5 Benefits to Drinking Water

Someone commented on last Wednesday’s post asking how many times I got to the bathroom with all the water I drink.  I’m sure she was kidding… but I took the opportunity to count.

Yesterday I peed 15 times….
