I hope you are all in enjoying your Saturday. I wish I could say I was. But I’m still in excruciating pain from the deep tissue massage I had yesterday. The pain is equivalent to the aftermath of being hit by a bus or being trapped under an elephants leg. It took me five minutes to put my shirt on and I ditched my tennis shoes. I couldn’t imagine having to bend down to tie the laces. I really hope this is normal! Google told me it was, but we all know how reliable Google can be sometimes.
Now moving on to the positive part of the post. The yummy pumpkin protein shake! I am still in my pumpkin phase and will be until the new year! I absolutely love adding pumpkin to my protein shakes and wanted to share one of my favorites with you!This could be a great post workout snack or an Early morning Thanksgiving treat! You gotta get that protein fix if you plan on slaving in the kitchen all day! Mixing those taters takes a lot out of you.
