Motivation for Tuesday

I've been super lazy lately. I've been eating iffy lately but exercising...eh. Three day weekend has made me EXTRA realize the laziness and so today and I ate much better. Plotting on workouts now and deciding how I want to approach it, what I want to do.

This, this is me on a daily basis. I am a mega beast when I am hungry! My boyfriend doesn't even like to be around me when I'm hungry and I can't blame him. 

And there are days when I sit there and debate for an hour on what kind of workout I should do that day. Yep, it's sad. 

Sometimes we need a bit of motivation.

Vega Sport Protein Review

So through Fit Approach, I got to test out the Vega Sport Performance Protein powder in Vanilla. Stand alone protein powder, I am not a big fan of vanilla, but for mixing with fruits (and occasionally veggies), vanilla is my favorite.

I was actually a little hesitant to try this. I'm not a huge fan of plant based protein but I was also looking for a cleaner supplement to try and have had heard NOTHING but excellent things about Vega, and the Vega Sport Performance line sounded amazing.

Step 1: My ingredients! Strawberries, frozen mango, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, ground flax seed, and Vega Sport Vanilla protein powder

This is what the protein powder looks like out of the bag. It was a slightly brown color, but consistency was normal compared to most protein powder. 

After blending it all up!

The texture of the smoothie was a bit different from what I'm used to. It was thicker, but wasn't drastically different. The taste was different for me; it definitely wasn't as sweet as I'm used to protein powder being, but considering the usual one I've been using might as well be cake batter... It mixed well, it has a ton of protein for such a small amount of product! I also am a huge fan of no artificial sweeteners that so many others have. 

This one is definitely good for you! The nutrition facts are fantastic. The taste isn't any worse than a normal, lightly flavored protein powder. I would definitely keep using this for my fruit smoothies for added protein and I'd feel comfortable giving this supplement to my 11 year old. If you eat clean, this is definitely something to add to your supplement arsenal.

Wednesday Wisdom and wit!

Have I ever mentioned that I minored in English? Ha! That's where I get all of the somewhat kooky sayings I write.

And while Zimbardo is a bit crazy, this series of quotes are great:

Book reviews coming

Something I'm thinking of starting to do book reviews, and planning on incorporating it into my blog.

I read voraciously, and happily identify myself as a complete Bibliophile. It's a huge part of my life! My favorite Disney movie growing up was Beauty and the Beast...because of the library!

I mean, seriously. Looks how beautiful that is! 

One of my favorite places, that I've been in the United States that is, is Joseph Beth Booksellers in Lexington, KY. It's pretty close the being Beast's Castle Library! 

I'm thinking about doing this on a once a week, or biweekly basis. We'll see how it goes!
