Couple's Protein Supplements

Hello! Today's short post is about the protein supplements we got for ourselves recently. We were both very excited about it because we love working out and these protein babies are gonna be very helpful in helping us to achieve our desired goals!

Tadaa! So here are the products we got.
a) Shakers for our protein shakes! Both the blue and black shakers are from GNC Live Well. It feels good to bring a shaker along during workout session in the gym so you can consume protein shake right after your workout session. It's important to consume immediately because time loss is muscle loss!

b) CSY's green tea flavoured soy protein drink from Nutrilite Amway. It contains 8g of protein per serving. It's not a lot compared to the amount of protein in the Whey protein supplement but still it's sufficient for my daily protein intake. My other protein resources will be eggs, lean meat, low-fat yogurt and low-fat cottage cheese.

c) CYK's Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Protein from GNC Live Well. It contains 24g of protein and 5.5g of BCAAs (branch-chained amino acids) per serving so it' more suitable for hubby who focuses on muscle building. Awww my green tea protein powder looks so mini next to hubby's gigantic whey protein.

Hubby also signed up for GNC membership!

You can also opt for protein meals to enhance your muscles. Here is my protein meal for the day. Banana Protein Pancakes!

Made with a piece of banana, two whole eggs, a scoop of vanilla flavoured whey protein powder, blueberries, topped with strawberries and some low-fat cottage cheese. It's alright to not add in the protein powder, you can still make pancakes by using only banana and eggs! The extra cottage cheese gives the extra boost of protein but it is an expensive food product here =(. Anyone knows where to get cheap cottage cheese? I got mine from Ben's Market @ Publika and it costs me about RM12.90 for a small cup.

On a side note, both of us will be joining the Standard Chartered Marathon on June 30. I'm getting nervous because it's my first time joining a 10km marathon and I wasn't a good runner in the past though I have been doing a lot of cardio lately. Hope the effort will pay off.

That's all for today!
