This morning I headed out bright and early to another BodyPump class. I know it is best to give your muscles a day of rest when training, but last night at the Les Mills new release launch event we only did half of a BodyPump class…and I wanted the full thing, so I came back for more today. I must say…the new shoulder track is killer! But in a good way 😉
I had a startling experience this morning. It was dark as I walked out to my car this morning. Finding my car and remember where I have parked is always a little bit of a challenge…even in the day light. So, this morning I walked out to my car, and I looked down and noticed that a hub cap was missing!!
Now, before I left for the cruise I had two missing hub caps. While I was gone, my parents kindly replaced them for me, so when I looked down to see no hub cap my hear dropped. How did this happen? I couldn’t remember hitting any curbs lately. I was baffled…until I looked at the body of the car and realized it wasn’t mine! My car was parked next to this car, and they were both a similar color (and it was dark!). I was sooo relieved that I had not lost a hub cap. What a dramatic way to start the morning!
After BodyPump, I headed home and it was time for breakfast. A little overnight oat action is what I decided on for today. Or should I say “in the morning oats” because I didn’t actually prep them last night.
Today’s mix-ins were half an apple, 2 tsp of homemade peanut butter, and Sunwarrior Vanilla Protein Powder. It certainly hit the spot!
Protein Powder Ideas
Lately, I have been finding all sorts of ideas and recipes for protein powder. Spark People has a list of 15 new ways to use protein powder, which definitely got my recipe creating brain thinking. The recipe that intrigued me the most? The protein cookie! I am going to have to create a recipe for that.
Here are some of the ways I use my protein powder to make it a little easier to incorporate protein into my diet without having to eat a ton of meat.
