In the past I’ve used protein shakes as a pre/post workout drink and drank them as a means to quell my voracious sweet tooth. Lucky for me I had the opportunity to sample Pure Whey Protein Isolate from Summit Nutritions. One packet is one serving and has 25 grams of protein which is roughly 2 TBS. I mixed my shake with almond milk and that may have added to the sweetness. The next time I’ll use skim milk or even try it with water. The taste was very chocolaty and it was very filling. The only slight drawback was that it didn’t dissolve easily, and I did shake it for 25-30 seconds as per the package directions.
I liked the fact that this is pure whey protein isolate. Only 110 calories, <1% carbs, no fat, no lactose and most important it is a non-gmo product. Over the course of my fitness career I’ve tried many varieties and brands of protein shakes and this one ranks at the top. You can find Pure Whey Protein Isolate by Summit Nutritions at Amazon.com
It just so happened that over the weekend I went with Charisse to the bridal shop so that she could get reacquainted with her wedding dress. While there I looked over their Mother of the Bride dresses. Some were very stylish and some clearly were just downright frumpy. Just because you have a daughter/son getting married doesn’t put you in the matronly category. Who’s designing these dresses?
There were few that were my style and figured I’d come back later to try them on. In my mind come back later meant after losing about 15 pounds. The associate that I asked about availability informed me that these dresses should be ordered for months out from the wedding. Oh dear. Houston we have a problem! The wedding is in July.
I’ve ridden the weight loss rollercoaster way too many times in my life to even think about an all or nothing crash/fad diet. At this point in life I’m not going that route again. It’s hard on the body and the weight loss isn’t permanent. I know all the rules and how it happens, and yes, I know I should have been more serious about it many months ago. Wish me luck on the dress, stuff is about to get real around here. Treadmill here I come!!!!
