Saturday morning was my start of Kayla Itsine's BBG week 8 and since the gym was quiet we kicked off the week off with legs because that workout tends to require a little more set up.
I love starting the morning off with the BBG circuits because they are quick and get you out of the gym and enjoying the weekend in under an hour. But WOW- prepare to feel it, especially this one. I mean seriously, I was still hobbling around Monday because my butt was so. incredibly. sore (#deathbykayla). Despite looking like a 90 year old woman every time I stood up, the week 6/8 workouts have been my favorite so far. Definitely looking forward to getting to that last stretch though!
After wrapping up at the gym, I refueled with this chocolate berry protein shake. Does anyone else find it impossible to make a single serving of a smoothie or shake? I somehow create these absurdly large shakes and end up dumping half of them down the drain. I really need to find a formula that works and stick to it though I'm sure consistently measuring ingredients instead of tossing them in blindly and expecting the right proportions would work.
Chocolate Berry Protein Shake
1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I used Jay Robb)
3-4 ice cubes
1 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy, I used Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk blend)
1 small handful frozen raspberries
1 small handful frozen blackberries
Sometimes when I read recipes (or see pictures on instagram) of protein shakes that claim to taste like dessert- I foolishly believe them. Really though- this combo won't disappoint. Plus you earned this refuel!
