Illness, injury, and rebirth

Hello everyone!

Just an update for those of you who are following my 1st hall training with T25. I had to take two weeks off due to illness and an injury that was not T25 related (word to the wise wear a cup even when working with kids.) an now I am restarting with week 1. In my two weeks off I gained back the 3 pounds I had lost because dieting during an illness if not done correctly can prolong your illness. I don’t know how to properly diet, and needed to get better ASAP so I refused to put any of my meals in MyFitnessPal and just ate what I felt I needed.

Now that spring has sprung I will have many more opportunities to exercise. Just yesterday I walked to and from the kwoon. That is 6 miles round trip! I am really excited to have winter behind us.

What is your favorite springtime activity? Let me know in the comments!

Some other strange supplements

In my last post we talked food, protein, and supplements. Due to my finances, I really can’t afford to buy fresh veggies. Well ok that’s not totally true, I can’t afford to buy fresh veggies knowing that they may go bad before I can eat them. So my partner and I put some resources into powdered food. We had been using powdered milk for a long time, it doesn’t go bad and makes decent tasting milk. Note I said decent not Fantastic. She doesn’t really drink it a lot and I have trouble digesting it so powdered was the way to go for us.

With this prior success we decided to buy a lot of different powdered foods. We have kale, spinach, butter, yogurt, 2 different cheeses, peanut butter, banana, lemon powder, brown gravy, eggs and even whipped cream. many of these have been used in recovery shakes that my partner has concocted. ok before anyone pukes on their screen the cheese, butter, gravy, and eggs are not going to show up. I’m still hoping one of them will have whipped cream on top 🙂

To make these more filling we did go and buy some frozen fruit for a little bio mass. here are some example recipes, we have used. Remember these are all still in Beta so you may not like some of them because I know I sure didn’t 🙂

Here are two examples that are 2 servings each

Shake 1:

2 scoops of whey protein

3/4 cup rice milk

1 tbs banana powder

11 g sugar

1 cup mixed berries

8 oz water

then blend

Shake 2:

1 tsp spinach powder

1 tsp lemon powder

2 tsp yogurt powder

1/2 cup rice milk

1.5 cups mixed berries

2 tsp sugar

8 oz of water

then blend
