Those protein bars sound yum !! Home cooking always offers plenty of room for improvement lol.

You buy Chai green tea in teabags? Never seen that over here.

I took a bar for my trainer to try and he actually liked them. As for the chai green tea no it wasn't in tea bags but here is the recipe I found for it

1 1/2c water
4-6 green tea bags
1/2c favorite milk
1/8 tsp cardamom
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1-3 tbsp agave or maple syrup

Boil water and steep tea bags for 5 min. warm up milk, spices, vanilla and sweetner on low heat stiring. Combine the 2 and mix. pour into favorite mug and enjoy.

I would however like to note that if you like a strong chai flavor bump up the spice factor. and if you want the protein bar recipe let me know :)

Sat down with the trainer today who told me point blank that right now with switching up my entire routine by going to nights I can't do the 2 a days right now. After I get adjusted he said we can think about going back but is at least letting me keep 6 day a week workouts. Said I can do cardio every day after work which is a bonus so I can keep up with my running training :) And measured my arms for me since I felt they have gotten bigger and sure enough gained 1.25" in my arms :D So off to the gym for the last round of my 2 a days for a while....

This is how we should be thinking! Nutrients is the name of the game of being healthy.

Night shift is killing my documenting my workouts. I am sleeping more than when I was on days. Cardio is suffering except my 3 days a week running training. I smacked my head pretty hard at work today on a tv mounted on a wall. Hurts like hell....

Hope you can sleep off the headache MF.
