WOW Day 3/Whey Protein/Green Machine Nutrition

Hi, I did WOW day 3 yesterday. It was tough. It was a morning training WOW. I had a pretty big smoothie just before I started, mistake. I do like to eat a little something before I train but this was a bit much. Lesson learned. I felt slower and full during the whole session but I managed to push through and get it done. My time was 24:00 minutes. That was with 800m runs. I know I can do better and I will. I did increase my weight which I am proud of. Anyway, it is a new glorious day and I am ready to finish my WOW workout day 4. Excited!

Do you feel tired and cranky with no energy? Sometimes I feel tired with lack of energy from teaching and all of my own workouts, so I incorporate a whey protein shake after my workouts to help with recovery. Right now I use Muscle Milk Vanilla Whey Protein or this heavenly tasting chocolate dreamy whey protein.

I get this at Costco. So delicious!

Another favorite I like to whip up when I need more veges is The Green Machine. Love:)

I just blend a bunch of spinach, frozen pineapple, a little fresh squeezed lemon juice and a little spring water in my beloved NINJA blender. So refreshing and full of goodness.

So how are your WOW’s going? Are you looking forward to next week WOW’s? I will post it on Sunday.

Sweaty me after WOW Day 3
