Protein I put that S*** in everything

I am seriously starting to feel like the old lady in the Franks Red Hot sauce commercials, except instead of hot sauce it’s protein lol. My newest protein product is protein ice cream. With the weather getting warmer and warmer finally I want a healthy treat that will still get me to meet my protein goals. I am hoping to record and upload a vlog about all the products I’ve been trying. But here’s a list for those of you interested in my favourite protein products and it’s quite the list.

Atkins lift water (got mine at walmart)

Atkins Indulgence Bars(for when I want a chocolate bar also bought at walmart)

Syntrax comes in tons of flavours but I prefer Twisted Cherry and Fuzzy Peach  it makes a great protein juice or popscicles   ( got mine at a specialty shop but you can order from Amazon)

Vega chocolate protein powder with greens ( from walmart)

Premier protein protein bars especially the salted caramel one from Walmart

Premier protein shakes my favourite at the moment is the new bananas and cream ( I get them at walmart or costco)

Atkins Cookies and cream shake for when I want a milkshake type treat (got mine at walmart)

Those are just a few products so you can see why I feel like the lady from the commercial lol.

I also want to share my numbers with you since it’s been a few weeks.

Highest weight 274 lbs

If you’ve read up to this point thanks for bearing with me I’m a little scattered but I want to talk with you about some struggles since having weight loss surgery. Some would think it’ a blessing to never be hungry and to not realize you are skipping meals till it’s the end of the day. At first I was one of those people. I was grateful that for once in my life I wasn’t thinking about food and what I could eat and couldn’t eat. But now that I’m almost 6 months out and I am skipping 2 sometimes 3 of my 6 meals I am getting concerned. I am trying to be more respectful of my body and treat it properly which means I need to fuel it to avoid having deficiencies or getting malnourished. Thankfully I am part of a bunch of weight loss support groups and they have been helping me. I have my Fitbit set up to go off at regular intervals so that I eat and over the past few days that has helped me a lot. So I will keep that up and hope it becomes a habit 🙂

Also here’s a link to the video if you have no idea who the old lady is with the hot sauce 🙂
