This past Friday, I decided to do leg day (which I postponed from Thursday, since this week has been hectic). My workout consisted of warming up on the treadmill for 6 mins, stretching and weightlifting: deadlifts, reverse lunges, leg presses, straight-leg dead lifts and hamstring curls; then stretching again at the end. I normally do super-sets, which mean I combine two exercises back to back as one set, completing 3-4 sets, and resting in between sets.
After this workout, I was completely done for! I usually would drink a protein-shake with just mixing my protein powder with 8oz of water, but I decided when I got home that I would make a Blueberry Protein Shake instead! Here's the recipe:
- 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder (I use BSN Syntha-6 Vanilla Ice Cream flavor)
- Handful of blueberries
- 6 cubes of ice
- 1-2 cups of Cashew milk (I honestly eye-balled it)
Blend everything in the blender, and voila - a quick post-workout shake that helped me last until lunch time, thanks to the protein content.
This smoothie already looked delicious, but I totally had to share with you all my favorite way to dress up my mason jars! A while back, when I first started using mason jars to drink basically everything out of I found out about The Mason Bar Company. They have the absolute cutest lids for your mason jars that have holes for straws in them so you can take your drinks to go. I have the plastic lids in copper and gold (but can't seem to find my gold one - insert sad face here), clear plastic straws, straw brush (to clean the straws), and a mint colored cuff. The lids are dishwasher safe, but the straws you have to hand-wash (which isn't a big deal to me). The cuff is super cute and fits my tall jars as well as my smaller ones. They also have bamboo lids for mason jars if that's something you're looking for. I haven't purchased those before but they're really cute and are also available if you're looking more for a storage lid!
Do you drink out of mason jars too? If you do, give these a try! It's a fun way to personalize your drinkware - and enjoy your post-workout smoothie or whatever you may be drinking :)
