Don’t Ruin Your Workout With Junk | REPLENISH.

Protein has kind of always scared me. I guess it’s a love/hate relationship though, because I keep going back to it. Now that I have been lifting, I like to eat before, during, or after my workouts…sometimes just one of those, or all, both, who knows. I eat alot, let’s be real. Anyway, the nutrition store by my gym has their own line of supplements and I really like the S’mores flavor of their VCore Vantage Protein Powder. And I added it into a healthy, 15 grams of protein, less than 200 calorie milkshake concoction FTW!

  1. Stopping myself from eating junk after the gym is possibly the hardest thing I do all day. I need to start eating something healthy pre-workout!

    1. Girl, I feel you. I probably ate every hour after my post gym protein smoothie…but at least it tasted like a milkshake! Tracking what goes in and what you burn REALLY helps me resist (or at least grapple with if the indulgence is worth it).
