Once again I woke up very early to hit the gym. I had a work shift at 10:30, so I needed to be able to get home and shower before then.
More of the same workout, only my treadmill walk at the end was shorter. I tried out some new machines today too! I was fun really working my upper body=)
Here’s what I’m lovin’ for post workout refuel:
About Time protein products! Their company generously sent me some of their products to try out and I am so excited to tell you about them!
First up were these two bars they gave me.
Carob & Coconut:
I thought this bar was amazing! It reminded me of cookie dough, but better! I’ve never had carob chips before, but I think I’m a convert thanks to this bar. It was really filling and just what I wanted after a workout. I definitely plan to get this bar again.
I haven’t tried this bar yet, but I can’t wait to. Tomorrow maybe?;)
Read what they have to say about the bars:
“ The great taste comes naturally.
Prepare to expect more from a protein supplement or meal replacement bar. Each delicious About Time Bar has been made fresh and contains no artificial flavors or artificial sweeteners. The difference comes from using only natural ingredients and 100% whey protein isolate. The result is a quality you can taste, and a nutritional superiority your body will feel.
The About Time difference
These bars were created by exercise and food science experts because of our concern about misleading labels and health claims. About Time uses only 100% whey protein isolate instead of the pure protein concentrates found in most common supplements. These Bars are low glycemic and sweetened with Agave Nectar.”

What I love is that they use a low glycemic agave necter so your sugar levels aren’t messed with! And of course their 100% whey protein isolate and all natural ingrdients make it a very tempting choice. Not that I needed much convincing! Also, 20 grams of protein!
Then you have their Fill, Shake & Go bottles. I loved this concept! The give you the amount of powder; so no measuring! And the bottles are muy cute;)
I have peanut butter, strawberry, chocolate peanut butter, and banana, but there are many more you can try too (birthday cake and cinnamon swirl sound incredible!)! And I’ll tell you now, 30 grams of protein per bottle!
I’ve already tried the strawberry, and I gotta say I wasn’t thrilled with the taste. Fruity things aren’t always my favorite, so I’m sure chocolate peanut butter or even birthday cake would be delicious for me=) Also, I used water to fill it. Milk is suggested too, so I think I’ll try that instead for the next one=) But who can beat 30 grams of protein!

So there are also single serve packets! These bad boys have 25 grams of protein each and come in a variety of fun and interesting flavors as well. Mocha mint, peaches & cream, cinnamon swirl, vanilla, chocolate, and birthday cake were all sent to me=)
These flavors sound beyond fabuloussss. Mix themi in drinks, make drizzles out of them or even smoothies. This is going to be such a great way for me to get my protein in after my workouts. I’m so happy to have these products and they couldn’t have come to me at a better time!
So tonight I’m headed to a party for my friend’s mother. Her two sons are my best friends, and she’s like another mother to me=) It’s her “29″ birthday;) She’s bound to have amazing food, so I’ll try and snag some pictures! Tomorrow’s day 4 of my challenge and once again I have work afterwards. Hopefully I get enough sleep tonight…
Don’t you think these products sound fabulous?
-Yes, I do!
What flavor would you most want to try?
-Hmm it’s a toss up between cinnamon swirl and birhtday cake for me.
