Good Morning!  Happy Friday!

First I want to tell you the winner of the About Time Protein Giveaway!  The winner is:

Nicole @ FruitnFitness

166.137.100.29

I would love to win this package to try the new flavors of protein powder! Currently I use vanilla a lot because it is so versatile.

Nicole, email me at fitcupcaker at gmail dot com with your address so I can mail your goodies 🙂

Yesterday before I hit the gym I made an awesome breakfast.  I can take my time with breakfast when I don’t have to work and I love it because it’s my favorite meal!

1 egg – 3 egg whites – lean ground turkey – handful of spinach – tomatoes – sprinkle of cheese = perfection

A little while later I went to the gym and did an awesome plank workout that I kind of adapted from Lori and Michelle.  They always have great workouts.  They have a 5 minute plank workout (but I can’t do a plank for 5 minutes) so I came up with a tabata workout for the abs!

I used my gymboss timer and set it for 30 seconds work 10 seconds rest.  I did each exercise for 3 rounds so the whole workout is 6 minutes long.

I love using my gymboss timer for tabatas.  If you don’t have one of these you can easily download a tabata timer app to your phone and it works just as good 🙂

So here’s the workout!

Rest 30 seconds to 1 minutes between exercises.

Good Morning!

If you have been reading my blog for even a little while you probably know that I LOVE my protein!!  I drink a protein shake at least once per day or make a protein snack at night 🙂  Recently I got an awesome package from About Time Whey Protein in the mail.  They sent me some samples of their protein powder flavors, the cinnamon granola, and the Fruit Nuts and Protein Bars.  I couldn’t have been happier to try all of their awesome protein flavors!

The first one I dove right into was the Birthday Cake Flavor!  It was pretty delicious.

I love About Time protein because it has zero carbs, 25 grams of protein per serving, and only about 100 calories!!   These protein powders are 100% All Natural, Gluten and Lactose Free, and are only sweetened with stevia unlike all those other proteins out there that have sucralose in them.  I know this because all of the other protein powders I use have sucralose in them 😦

I love having a protein shake right after my workout or for my mid morning snack!

Here is another fact: 

“For those trying to lose weight, protein is their best friend. Not only can protein supplements be used as low calorie snacks or meal replacements, but it helps level your hormonal landscape. Protein raises Glucagon levels (fat burning hormone) and reduces Ghrelin levels (a hormone that stimulates appetite).”  Source
