Non Scale Victories

button

I'm not gonna lie to you guys...My eating habits have not been stellar lately. With the busyness that vacation brings and trying to get back into the swing of things, I haven't been planning out my meals. When that happens, convenience foods end up being a go to. I haven't had much fast food, but my meals certainly haven't been very nutritious either.

Though my eating hasn't been great, there have been a couple things that I have done that are helping me move in the right direction.

First, like I mentioned yesterday, I got back on track with a running routine. I had my first run of the week on Tuesday and will be logging 5 miles today. It's supposed to be a tempo run that will start with a 1 mile walking warm up and end with a 1 mile walking cool down. So, really it'll only be 3 solid miles of running at the same pace. Completely doable (hopefully, anyway)!

Second, I am in the process of testing out some Lifeway Kefir products.* Kefir is a cultured probiotic beverage, similar to drinkable yogurt. Here are the products that I am testing:

So far, I have only tried the Chocolate Truffle Kefir, once by itself and once in a protein shake. It's tart and not that chocolatey by itself. But it was much better in the shake!

Here's what I did for the shake: 4oz. Chocolate Kefir, 4oz. Chocolate Almond Milk, 2 tbsp PB2, and 2 scoops sweet cream protein, and it was pretty yummy. It was thick, and it made me really full!

I will keep you all posted about the rest of the flavors and other things I make with it as I continue taste testing it all!

Here's why I consider trying Lifeway Kefir a non-scale victory:

  • It's made with organic milk, free of rBGH
  • 99% lactose free
  • Gluten free
  • One serving provides 30% daily value of calcium and 28% daily value of protein. 
Since my nutrition isn't always where it should be, I am ALWAYS up for trying new things that will help me get the nutrients I need to live a healthier life.

  1. If I don't meal plan I get a little crazy with my eating too! Good for you for getting back on a running plan, it is so hard to jump back in after taking a break sometimes!! I am glad you found a way to like the chocolate flavor and look forward to seeing how you feel about the other flavors!! Thanks for linking up with us!!
