But then I realized it was highly geeky and a slew of numbers that would turn off anyone who ventured into the blog like on a 'Fat Amy' day and shocked by the nerdness they found.
(no worries....Nerds rule the world)
Last week I found a protein powder that decently liked my body, or the reverse....whatever the case, I'll take it! And so my protein quest began on Tuesday. Per instructions I drank it quickly after my morning workout. I normally work out 4:30-5:30am and don't eat any food until close to 9am. Don't know why, just that is when I'm finally hungry enough to eat. But this is about changes, right? So I chugged the shake down and then carpooled into work with Hubs. About 30minutes into the drive I started feeling alittle 'off' and my heartrate picked up. I tolerated it and skipped coffee when I got to work and just hit the water to settle down and just in case my stomach didn't respond well.

Luckily things were managed, and I didn't have any stomach issues.....simply the 'flutter-high' that I suspect is due to the green coffee bean extract in the shake? 200mg of caffiene? Perhaps because I chugged it? Don't know, but that was the only incident of it. Wednesday I waited until 8am at work to drink it after calming down from my workout fully and haven't had any side effects since then.
Protein intake in grams:
Monday - 78
Tuesday - 100
Wednesday - 122
Thursday - 84
Friday - 100
So this week's goal is to hit that 100gram mark four days this week.
I looked back into January before I started trying different proteins and my weekly average was only 54grams.
The best part of last week?
I felt great! So much more energy!
