Protein Shakes and weekly goals

I found a new way to get a better tasting protein shake..

add a cup of applesauce!

I had a carton of single serv applesauce cups.. natural.. no sugar added..just sitting in the fridge for like.. forever.. and decided to dump one in my protein shake I just had. It reminded me of apple pie.. which was nice...

1 banana
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (yes.. the one that I thought was gross!)
1 applesauce cup
a splash of vanilla extract
a tsp? of pumpkin pie spice


I'm so happy that I found a way to use this vanilla protein powder. I have a chocolate one now too.. but it's not as clean as I'd like... so I am still on the search for a good protein powder.

I've notice a lot of people are doing weekly goals and thought maybe I would try this week. I always have it in the back of my mind to do certain things a day.. but now I'm going to make myself super accountable. I will put a goal box on my blog and track every day.

1. Drink at least 8 cups of water/day
2. 60min walk at least 5 times this week (probably M-F)

I'd say eat clean every day.. but I'm finding that I am getting consistent with that for the most part.. minus a splenda mishap or 2! (I hid that box of packets ..maybe I won't be tempted as much!)

Maybe my food goal will be to try a new recipe this week. I've been sticking to basic foods/meals.. which is fine.. but I know I will get bored.. so I'm on the lookout for new meal ideas! Maybe this week I will try a tofu dish. It's a cheaper protein and CLEAN.. about $2.50 for a 12oz box... I just need to find the right recipe!

Have a GREAT, PRODUCTIVE, CONSISTENT week everyone!!

I love those little cup of applesauce, I eat them with my pork loins !! I heart fruit and meat! hahah

they are great for snacking too. Never tried them in a shake - sound like a good idea!!
