So, as today is Valentines Day I guess most are eating large quantities of candies and chocolates. I on the other hand had a brilliant idea to give up sugar sweets for Lent. I did not even think about Valentines day following ash Wednesday. Me 1, Sugar 0.. As of 5:06PM. I can do it. My weight loss journey is in full swing. This past Monday I even got in an extra work out. YAY! I am officially down 2 lbs. Which is slower then I thought, but I am okay with it. I will take it! I ordered the rest of my needed supplies from Arbonne Int'l. So, next week shakes for more meals. I am going to stick to no sweets tonight, no matter how tempted I am :) I will be a better person for it. I want to try and get a work out in as well. I am going to look at this day as if it were any other day. Just time to relax and enjoy myself. I want to make sure I have time, energy and money to enjoy the long weekend :)
I have been enjoying a Protein Shake recipe this week.
Cherry Almond Torte
2 scoops Protein Powder (arbonne)
14 oz almond milk (if I use vanilla powder I substitute Chocolate almond milk).
hand full of Frozen Cherries - Organic (Trader Joe's).
1 or less scoop of Fiber boost
splash of Almond extract
add ice for thicker consistency
A very Happy Valentines Day to everyone!
More to come soon!
