I’ve found that doing something for myself and my health each day isn’t nearly as hard as I had once imagined it would be. Rewind 10+ years where I was in a frame of mind where I did almost nothing for myself.
At the time, my children were really young, I was fighting off the remnants of postpartum health issues while trying to launch a brand. My minutes were all taken and the excuses were plentiful.
But, I did manage to make myself several cups of coffee throughout the day. Looking back, I wonder how soon I could have started to heal and find more energy if one of those cups of coffee had been a protein shake or drink.
Enter the Challenge Series here on Bloggy Moms where each month we’ll challenge ourselves to do something that enhances our quality of life. You can find the first challenge here.
I’ve spent the last few years trying to ensure that I get a healthy amount of protein daily. So that is what I want to encourage you to do! For me, this has helped curb cravings and give me a new type of energy. One that I refer to as a useful energy rather than a sluggish form of it. I’ve found that the easiest way for me to incorporate more protein has been through protein shakes of some sort. But I’ve also found other yummy ways to do this!
Recently, I’ve teamed up with IdealFit to encourage you to also incorporate something healthy into your everyday life. So, I LOVE my protein drinks. Like, as much as I love my coffee. I keep stocked up and hardly miss a day. Though, this morning I just did not feel like having a protein drink of any type. It’s a little chilly outside and I wanted to start the day off with hot drinks and warm foods.
I mixed a 1/2 scoop of the Chocolate Brownie protein powder with a full serving of oatmeal and milk – it was perfect!
