Taking advice from yesterday, I used soy protein powder in a smoothie this morning. I was avoiding that because I hate cleaning the stupid blender.
It was good! I used 1 cup almond milk, 1/2 scoop powder, 1/2 banana, 3/4 cup mixed frozen fruit. That plus oatmeal and wheat germ was a VERY Filling breakfast. More calories than I usually allot for breakfast, but it kept me full a long time, so I will eat less calories during the day. And, my trainer should be happy with my protein intake.

- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.
