Ready to cool down with a refreshing, protein packed smoothie? Try this one that’s so thick you can eat it with a spoon for breakfast, snack or post workout (maybe even dessert;) . It’s a well rounded recipe with fats, carbs, protein, and fiber loaded up into one! It’s dairy free, but is super creamy and has the consistency of ice cream! Depending on protein powder used, this can also be vegan and clean.
The past few days have been jam packed with packing and moving. I’ve talked about my amazing family before. They have helped me out so much over the years and I love them dearly. This time, my mom, dad and one brother have been part of the mighty moving team.
I had run into some mover’s asking me why I hadn’t hired some movers. I was like, “Look at these guns, I can do it”. Hehe. *Muscle flex*. Nah, more so, it’s just that I’ve moved so often over the past several years I’m sort of a pro at it. I do, though, pride myself on being able to pull my weight and help with the heavy lifting.
Although I have to be super careful because of my back issues. There is definitely a right and wrong way to lift things people! Please don’t bend over at the waist and lift. So many people injure themselves that way. Separate your legs, squat down, chest up. Use your legs to do the work, not your back!
My mother had come over early to help me pack, which was a much needed help. Previously, I had just had boxes sort of scattered everywhere partially packed. It was all like:
I had thought I’d get a head start on it early, but found out how difficult that was. There were still so many things I used on a daily basis, or had a high potential of being used. Who knew! Thank goodness she was up for helping me get everything ready for the big day.
Soon, I’ll be seeing my new place for the first time. *cough, hope sight unseen will work out, cough* How terrifying and exciting all at the same time! Now since I’m an emotional eater and all, let’s cool down with a refreshing protein smoothie!
Anybody else moving?
Anybody else feel like they move WAY too much?
