Weight training, whey protein, and oatmeal.

Wednesday, September 15, 2010


I am estatic because I have endorphins raging inside me! I love that feeling that you get after a workout, don't you? I am happy for no apparent reason, and I feel so giddy inside :oD!

This morning I went to my weight training class at school and proceeded to do the rowing machine for 15 minutes to warm-up and then lifted weights. Today was back and bicep.

I felt strong and here are the stats for one hour of weight training:

86% maximum HR due to the rowing machine kicking my ass, that's some good cardio workout I say, but I don't think I have the mentality to row for 30-45 minutes, which is how much cardio I try to strive for a day.

Grunt FACE! grow biceps grow!

After weight training, I was starving and initially thought of starbucks, but I had to drive away and save money. I didn't want to form a habit of mindlessly going to starbucks all the time. I had something better waiting for me at home. Enter: WHEY PROTEIN.

Gotta feed a stressed out muscle right?

With the optimum nutrition whey I got a while ago, I combined it with Amazing Grass's Green Superfood and Wheatgrass.

In the Magic Bullet:
- One cup of almond milk
- scoop of Green SuperFood
- Wheatgrass powder
- Optimum Nutrition whey protein, chocolate
- Frozen bananas

I whipped away and got this...

I think this is much satiable than a regular ole' coffee from starbucks. At least I can wish I got this protein smoothie from starbucks, mind trick wonders.

Paired with oatmeal. Complex Carbs + Protein = Feeding Muscles

In the oatmeal, I added a slash of almond milk, peanut butter, and honey. All together I got a good complete breakfast!

Look what I found while packing, this was me in fourth grade. I loved those overalls, and I love that hair (even though I hated it back then).

I am going to the dentist now, stay tuned for whats to come!

That is a great looking smoothie! Are you referring to the vivanno's from Starbucks? The chocolate banana is bomb :)

I really like the chocolate superfood. I use to shake it with coffee and almond milk. Sometimes I even mix it into oatmeal. Great job for weight training, keep it up!

I love overalls too. I wish I could wear them now, but I can't find any that fit me or don't make me look like an Asian hicky. lol.
