Ummm.... YES! I am absolutely 100% obsessed with protein shakes. I even have my two kids getting almost as obsessed as I am. It all started with the frozen hot chocolate protein shake. Then I made a banana cheesecake shake using sugar free, fat free JELLO cheesecake and 1/2 of a banana. Well... I got to thinking about how good it would be to add some cheesecake mix into the frozen hot chocolate. BLISS. Absolute bliss. I look forward to that nightly shake. My kids do too, they come running for a little of their own the second the blender starts.

The past few days have been really hectic. I can't even tell you why other than I am pretty exhausted half of the time and feel like my day is over before it really ever begins. I don't feel like I have accomplished much. Ever feel that way? I don't like it one bit. Today I feel completely useless. I must be coming down with something. It all started yesterday with a headache that I couldn't get rid of. I went to bed with it and was up MULTIPLE times at night with it... well that and a scared child who swore she had worms in her bed. I decided to skip the 5:30 am class at the gym so I could get some sleep. I woke up feeling a little better, but as soon as I got to the gym around 9 and started doing legs the throbbing began. It was bad, I had to leave after a few exercises because it was making me nauseous. NOT GOOD when I am going to be on stage in a teeny tiny bikini in 8 weeks. I spent the day resting. I do feel a little better but don't want to push it. Anyway, enough of that. Here is what I have been feasting on lately!

Turkey Meatballs

1 lb extra lean ground turkey and 1 egg

seasonings of choice and a little (not too much) cheese

A couple spoonfuls of salsa

A handful of Oats instead of breadcrumbs

Form into balls and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes turning halfway

The finished product. YUM!


    lovin the food pics!!!
    hope you feel better soon!
    and your 8wks out already????

  2. Yep, actually a little less than 8. I really only give myself 10-12 weeks to train for my comps and that was figure. I am hoping that I can pull it off but if I don't feel ready than I will not get up on that stage :) Your so close Melissa... I cannot wait to hear all about your comps! Whoop Whoop!
