I just finished my last session with phase 2. Next week kicks off the lean phase and I’m ready! Time for a change of pace. I’ve also been following Ripped in 30 on my cardio days. Love the workouts, wish it was a little bit longer (only 30 minutes) but for now it gets the job done.
Protein shakes: Last month I started taking Optimum Nutrition after my workouts but I noticed within a couple of days that I was not feeling well. Was it because of that? Not sure. So I took a break, started again a week later but the unwell feeling came back. Okay no more ON shakes for me.
Hubby suggested using the protein powder he takes: Syntha-6 Mochaccino. Anything that smells/taste like coffee is a winner to me. So it’s been a few days, I noticed yesterday afternoon that my stomach was bothering me (same symptoms as before). I took it again today (before and after my workout) and I’m going to really keep an eye on what I eat and rule out anything that could be bothering me. This will only encourage me to eat clean and remove toxins/junk out of my diet.
I’ve done away with the blender. Just 4 oz of ice cold water and a shaker cup does the trick. Easy clean up and fast too. I’m sure on some days I could add milk for a “milk shake” treat. Having a protein shake first thing in the morning really takes way the hunger pains and even after my workout. I just hope Syntha-6 is the one for me and no more tummy aches.
