Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

This week has been super crazy with the husband out of town and me left to 4 crazy kids under the age of 4!  No need to say more!  Anyway, I managed to fit in a couple real workouts that I felt were great.  I think I felt they were great because first they only took 30 minutes or less and second because I can barely walk! Ha Ha!  That just goes to show you how out of shape I am too!  I'm getting there though!  Slowly but surely! :)

Here are just 2 that I thought were worth sharing if you felt like switching it up!  Let me know what you thought about these workouts and leave a comment about other workouts you like as well! :)

Protein Shakes to Curb your Sugar Cravings

As you know, I'm really trying to cut back on my sugar intake.  Not so much fructose, more of the sucrose.  Easter weekend I had sweets 2 days and then the week following I had a couple airheads and jelly beans on 2 or 3 different occasions which isn't good for me!  That's what I'm trying not to eat!!!

I tend to crave sugar most when I haven't had the time to feed myself because I'm too busy feeding everyone else and cleaning up after the kids that I literally don't have time to eat.  That's not good at all!  So lately I've been very into these yummy protein shakes that curb my sweet cravings and satisfy my hunger.  Here are the two that I've been drinking the past couple weeks.

Chocolate Protein Shake:
1 Scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
1 Cup Almond Milk (or milk of your choice)
1-2 TBSP Cocoa Powder
15-17 Big Ice Cubes
1/2 tsp vanilla

Pina Colada Protein Shake
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Cup Almond Milk (or milk of your choice)
1/2 Cup Frozen Pineapple
1/2 tsp Vanilla
15-17 Big Ice Cubes

Do you have any yummy protein shake "go to" recipes?
