Another great gym session is in the books!
I did 30 minutes on the elliptical + back stuff and called it a day.
I’m not usually a huge gym person – I prefer to be outdoors, but let me tell you, in this Carolina heat, it sure is nice to have an air-conditioned gym to go to!
When I got home I refueled with an apple + tbsp. crunchy TJ’s peanut butter
And a taste test!
The kind folks over at CalNaturale Svelte sent me some samples of their all-natural protein shakes to review for all of you!
Chad and I tried each of the four flavors and were both pleasantly surprised at how good they were!
I’ve often found that protein shakes have a bit of a chalky taste to them but these didn’t at all which was a definite bonus.
The flavors were also great – not only did they come through really well, but they didn’t have that artificial quality to them that a lot of other protein shakes do.
I think the french vanilla came out as the winner for both of us. I can’t wait to add these to pre and post-workout smoothies! Chad even said he’d happily drink them straight out of the bottle (and that’s saying something!)
Thanks again to Bailey for sending these over – they were a major hit in our household!
When Chad got home he headed out for a run so Clara and I went out for a walk!
She’s taken to sprinting home when we reach our turnaround point and I think she’s actually gaining some speed. I had to work to keep up with her – granted I was in flip flops, but still!
She definitely left it all out on the field, she was pooped when we got home!
And I was too for that matter!
I started in on dinner while Chad was still running and right as I was pulling the potatoes out of the oven, he walked in the door – talk about good timing
Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Chicken Burgers were on the menu for tonight!
(Check out Iowa Girl Eat’s homemade version of these!)
I loaded mine up with avocado, lettuce, onions and mustard all on a Rudi’s whole wheat bun.
I love the taste of these buns, but they proved to be a little too small for these burgers. They’re somewhere in between slider and regular hamburger buns.
Ultimately it worked out okay though!
To have alongside I roasted some sweet potato wedges with cinnamon (SO good) -
I’m so glad I discovered the sweet potato/cinnamon combo. I don’t think there’s any going back to roasting them without now!
A delicious summertime meal.
And now? It’s Everest time!
