After spending all weekend eating our way through Asheville, it’s time to reel it back in. Mondays are always a little tough for me – especially after a few days of indulging in all sorts of high-calorie foods and drinks. It takes me a little while longer to bounce back when I give in to my cravings.
Luckily, my Weight Watcher meetings are so appropriately placed on Monday evenings. This gives me the motivation that I need after the weekend and sets me up for a successful week ahead. Last night, we talked about high-protein snacks or items we can add to our meals. Increasing protein intake can keep us fuller for longer. And consuming protein immediately after a workout can help maximize muscle protein building and can lead to better results.
Premier Protein Shake Weight Loss:
At only 160 calories and 30 grams of protein (only 2 Smart Points!), this seems to be a Weight-Watchers favorite. This morning, after completing my workout, I’ll pair this with a banana for breakfast and have so many points left to spare for the day!
If you had a rough weekend – heck, even a rough day! – this is a great way to start over. Make the most out of your workout and keep yourself fueled throughout the day.
Questions of the Day:
- What must-have items do you have in your gym bag?
- How do you reel yourself back in after a weekend of ALL the eats?
