Energy and persistence conquer all things -Benjamin Franklin
It is Day 3 of Week two! I am feeling pretty confident after my workout this morning! I still am trying to get some of the moves down (especially the pendulum lunges, crow pushups and one leg bridges) but I can honestly say that Week 1 has prepared me for Week 2! I have been trying the advanced moves with Shelly on some of the workouts and the cardio is not nearly as hateful as in Week 1 to me!
It seems like other day I am getting an email or a FB message with someone joining! This makes me so happy to know that people are seeing our progress, our rants and raves, and are crazy enough to GET SOME OF THIS FITNESS!!! A co-worker of mine (who is a dude!! *gasp*) actually is joining, I am giving him my spare DVD from the giveaway-that-wasn't and when I get his operation name I'll post it!
Let's welcome our newest challenger:

Now on to something VERY important! I don't know how many of you read my post about what you need for R30, but I would like to STRESS to you that if you haven't picked up some type of protein shake, powder or bar, or aren't eating protein after your workout to do so ASAP!! As I stated before, with R30 we are building lean muscle mass every day. Protein is depleted after a workout and it is necessary to rebuild as soon as possible after a workout.
Today I went to Vitamin Shoppe to shop for YOU GUYS!!! You may not know where to start, or what to pick so I have a couple of options that are affordable, easy, and tasty!
|Biggest Loser for Designer Whey|
Designer Whey is a trusted name in Whey Protein and has been around since 1993. They have all types of products including liquid shakes, bars, and powders. I am not getting paid to endorse them (obviously lol) but while I was doing my research I did find an online coupon that can be helpful in motivating you to get your protein shake game up! I totally wish I had known about these coupons before today, my favorite Aria shakes are made by Designer Whey too! I spend about $50 a month on shakes! Grrrrrrr!!!
|I picked up Red Raspberry! And yes those are my comfy blankets! I blog from the comfort of my bed!!|
|Dolvett Quince the new Biggest Loser coach *SWOON*|
|Aria Chocolate Milkshake|
|Vegan Proteins- Double Chocolate|
*crosses fingers for YOU*
|Designer Whey- Protein 2 Go|
|Just like a Crystal Light packet!|
Ok so lastly I want to show you my favorite bottle of all times for my shakes, The Blender Bottle !!!! Instead of having to deal with a blender especially if you are pressed for time like I am, the Blender Bottle will be your BFF! It comes in three pieces. The bottle, whisk ball, and a top. Pour your milk or water in, along with your powder, shake that bad boy and you have a perfect, clump-free shake!
