The Search Continues

I tried another protein powder today – Tera’s Whey Protein Powder in BlueberryIMG 1100 266x400 The Search Continues

I had high expectations since I’ve heard rave reviews about this stuff in blogland. But sadly it didn’t live up to my fave – Spirutien Cherries Jubilee. Nothing has compared to this stuff.

But, I will not be deterred. When I went to Whole Foods to return my last failed protein powder an employee in the Whole Body section told me they sell my long lost protein powder at another local health foods store so I’ll check that out before I give up hope.

“Up with hope! Down with Dope!” And by dope I mean bad protein powder :) 

Thursdays are Rest Days so I did Jillian’s 30 Day Shred Level 1.

Monday Mini-Goal Update:

1. Get 8 hours of sleep each night. – I’ve been getting between 7 and 8 every night and really feel the difference that extra hour does when I get 8 versus 7. I’ll keep working toward that!

2. Jillian’s 30 Day Shred – I did this Monday and Tuesday, but skipped Wed.

3. Eat Clean – I finished off the ice cream Tuesday, but at least it’s out of the house now, right?

    I know how you feel about being overwhelmed. I haven’t even missed any class yet, and I feel over my head. However, in the past, I would use my unhealthy habits to deal with this stress. Now you and I can be happy that we have other ways of dealing!

    I love my smoothies smooth and creamy as well! I’ve always said “it’s called a SMOOTHie not an ICEie.”

    I can’t ever find a clean protein powder. They all have too many chemicals! But I did find 100% non-GMO pea protein powder that just has that one ingredient. Obviously it doesn’t help the smoothie in the taste department, but it is nice to get some extra protein in!

    I used to work at Mother’s Market in Costa Mesa and we carried it there! I worked in the Vitamin Dept :) There might be a closer location to you…we have a Laguna Woods store. Maybe that one? Good luck!
