The FitSmart Shake

by Joanne on May 20, 2009

A new shake mix was on the menu, “FitSmart Shake”, Chocolate Creme. It is Gluten Free, Preservative Free, and No Artificial Ingredients.  The nutrition values, in summary, are:  Calories: 155, Total Fat: <1g, Total Carbs: 17 g (Fiber=10, Sugars=2), Protein:20g.  The taste is very much like the Jay Robb Chocolate Protein that I typically use.

DSCN1023The unfortunate characteristic about these shakes is that they don’t stay mixed for long.  Enjoy it QUICKLY.

Today was Back and Tricep day:

Warm up with 30 minutes on the elliptical trainer.  4 sets x 12 reps:

  • Bent over rows. One hand tricep press.
  • Pull ups. Two hand tricep press.
  • Cable rear delts. On hand overhead tricep extension
  • Cable mid back row. Two hand overhead extensions.

4 mile run around Proctor Park with Shane.

A new twist on oats. I added 1/4 cup each blueberries and raspberries with 1 tsp maple syrup and cooked up the hot cereal.  There is about 1/2 TBS of  my granola mix from “Mix My Granola” on top. It’s not pretty but it sure is tasty.

Did you know it’s International Pickle Week?  I’m not making that up.  To bad I’m not a fan. Oh well. Have a great Wednesday 🙂

    I love smoothies but I think they’re much better when made with whole, fresh ingredients. Frozen berries, ground flaxseed, spinach or lettuce leaves, orange juice, and optionally protein powder. Do you ever make them that way, or always use powders?

      nomeatathlete: Thanks for your comment.

      Because the protein shake is always my weekday breakfast and time never seems to allow

      my creativity, I always use the powders. But I bet a shake using all fresh ingredients with yogurt or tofu as the protein base would be fantastic.
