Qwykie – Green Bee Smoothie

19 Apr

So this shake I made was pretty spectacular. Like the forth of July in my mouth.

I has just enough time to whip together a smoothie before my jettison into Theatre Space and this is what I threw together!

  • 1 medium frozen banana
  • 1 Cup frozen spinach
  • 1/2 Cup pumpkin
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey
  • 1 tbsp raw honey

This is serious bzzzzzzzness

Just add water to your desired consistancy ^_^

(I was going to add chia, but I forgot!)

This is the first time I made a spoonable smoothie and it was sooo thick and creamy and NOMS And it was supra filling. Definitely 1.5 meals. Great for long rehearsals :D!

My dress rehearsal could not have been more perfect. More on that later ^.~


Do you like to drink your smoothies, or eat ’em with a spoon?

Qwykie – FlufferNanner

18 Mar

Last night I decided to make a casein shake. I anticipated the texture would be quite creamy, and I was looking forward to it! I did the usual ice and powder, but I added water with a tiny dash of milk instead of milk only. It’s blending and doing it’s thing, and I quickly checked on some of my cooking, and when I came back I noticed it had started to fluff! Awesome! 😀 It is like marshmallow fluff, but protein-style!

Can you even tell? But it is light, airy, awesome sauce

Since seeing recipes for protein fluff on ProteinPow.com (some of which look positively sinful!) I always wanted to try it, but I didn’t recall seeing this brand of casien on the “fluffable” list but it’s there now! I used Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein.

It stayed fluffed longer than I expected, thinking that the ice and banana would make it heavier, but I loved it!

I tried dolloping it on my freshly baked carrot protein bars, a little too freshly baked, as the fluff melted straight away! Oops 😛 Still tasted good!

I will definitely be trying some other tasty fluff recipes, so I can dollop it on a cup of fruit, protein bars, pancakes… YUM! It’s just a fun way to get your protein ^^

Ain’t No Rest For the Wicked

23 Feb

Goooooood morning!!!

I skipped cardio yeasterday (Jamie, forgive me, for I have sinned) because I was feeling grumpy from lack of sleep. Because I only did one or two workouts last week, my body is under a lot of stress from going so hard these past few days, and I have not been getting my full 8 hours per night. Kelsey becomes a giant grumpus when she doesn’t get enough sleep. So! skipped cardio, ate a little su’m su’m, and asleep by 8! OH YES! Up at 4 feelin’ good. Of course, I had a snack before I have my big breakfast.

Today is shoulders!! WOO! I get kind of excited for them. They are my faves. I also get to do my favorite workout: reverse flyes. LOVE me some reverse flyes ^___^ If someone asked me what my best physical feature is, I would say my clavicle. That whole collar bone, shoulders, and upper back area. I love off the shoulder clothes! However, by shoulders are not very developed, and I think once they are I will look more balanced, and it will offset the largeness of my arms. Gotta go heavy (without injury!) so I will probably be making some grotesque faces in the gym today.

After reverse flyes, I think my other favorite move is the deadlift. Those are pretty hot. What’s yours?

This morning I wanted to listen to this, so here it is if you would like to as well 🙂

Today is awkward, schedule-wise. I have a small group meeting at 6, and I’m supposed to have a coworker reunion gathering around 9 or 10. I still don’t know where I’m going to squeeze in the workout, and a shower ect. Wish me luck!

Victory over the pizza

21 Feb

Morning came too soon… Down that 5 hour energy! Get on it!

I am very proud of myself for seeing that pizza this morning and having none of it. It called to me several times, and where I would usually have a few sliced AS WELL AS a full breakfast, I just thought about how yummy and filling, and full of good fuel my breakfast was going to be.

It was a leg day today! Just note: as of now, single leg squats are definitely not my favorite thing. Loooots of barbell work, which is strenuous on my neck and arms, but I got it done! My glutes are feeling… fail-y.

Post workout, I celebrated Fat Tuesday with a pancake thing of awesome

Taken from Alexandra, it was pretty darn good! I added a little almond extract, and almond butter on top. Oh baby.

I havent been getting enough sleep, so I need go do that, but first put away my laundry. I definitely poured it all over my bed so I would be forced to put it away before I could crawl inside. I hate me sometimes.
