So christmas are coming very fast. And I have been more dedicated with my workouts than ever. Training really hard and pushing myself. Weight training frequency has increased. Now I train muscles 6 times a week and I love it. I will explain more about my training cycle next time in my blog. I am also still doing some cardio, suprisingly I really enjoy this 🙂 It is like sweating out the problems and bad stuff, maybe some fat too hopefully :D So I am not the one who does cardio against my own will just to lose fat. I am doing it because I feel so good after that and it helps to relax my muscles. And it is better than just laying down on rest day. I don't know how to rest, so I usually include some cardio in my rest day. Nothing hard, just LISS (low-intensity, steady-state) cardio.
Sorry for the bad quality :) But pull ups are my bestfriends. Actually it is love-hate relationship. I hate do to them because they are hard as fck, but they are awesome because they make great back gains.
But I am not so happy with my nutrition last week. This weekend I ate too much sweets. Well, this is what happens when we visit my boyfriend's parents. There are always too much chocolate, sweets and food. I just lose control there lol. I don't know what is it, i am not even hungry and have zero cravings, but I still crave it when I am there :D It's kind of like my brain turns off and says: take it all, you don't have such a big free selection of sweets everyday. I would not be so mad at myself if I only ate them for 1 day which was enough, but it was whole weekend. I should be more dedicated when we visit his parents :D I should cheat when I really want something, but this time I didn't want at all. I just ate sweets and got 0 satisfaction. So it was so unneccessary. I would not regret it if I got foodgasm, but I didn't. Usually sugary stuff does the opposite. It's better to chose savory food for cheatmeal like burgers, pizza, sushi etc... because it satisfies the appetite more and fills your stomach. Sugar just makes you crave and crave and crave more sugar. And doesn't fill stomach, just makes you feel sick.
But stuff like this happens, sometimes you just turn into candy monster. I am imperfect human too and I am not trying to look like I am the best fitness girl in the world who only eats clean. Some people even does that all time of the year, but not me. :D
What counts is that I will always continue my journey. When we fall, we need to rise again and even stronger. Couple of not so successful days does not ruin your progress if you don't let it and keep working hard.
My last and most memorable foodgasm was when Kristo and I went out for a sushi after heavy workout session and we were really really really hungry. So it tasted even better. Can't wait to eat it again lol :D I really can't get that taste out of my head. So it was really really damn good!
BUT NOW let's get started with reviewing Goddess Nutrition products!!
They sent me BCAA, Protein Pudding, Shaker, 3 coconut protein testers.
BCAA- I got juicy apple flavor. Oh my, it is so delicious!! Not too sweet and is really juicy and a little sour, which I love. Some BCAAs make my mouth dry as hell, because of their sweetness, but this one didn't that much. It's so good like a lemonade ! There are also some Spirulina Extract and Acai Berry Extract in it, which have a lot health benefits. And natural colorings! The color was green ;)
Protein pudding (chocolate flavor) - I didn't understand that product. I am used to eat pudding as cold desert, but this one you had to mix and put it on microwave. It turned out kind of like a cupcake, but there were too less flavor in my opinion. It's not bad product, but maybe it just not for me. I hope they will make cold pudding too in the future. I even tried to eat it cold, but it wasn't good that way, it is neccessary to put that in the microwave so it can thicken up.
Coconut lean protein- There wasn't as much coconut taste as I expected, but it was okay. Good for mixing in the porridge or why not for baking? It was kind of sweet too. I wonder how the other flavors are. I think what little bit ruined the taste was tester package. Usually all testers have some kind of side taste because of the package. But it happens :)
So my absolutely favourite was BCAA, I really love that product, best BCAA so far that I've tried. AND SHAKER !! This shaker is the best too. Looks cute and is made of strong material and doesn't pass the water like some other shakers did. And the bottle cap is small, so it is great to drink even if I am running at the same time. Previously when I had other shaker, the cap was too big and if I was running then the water came out while I was drinking.
So if you plan to order something from Goddess Nutrition, then I advise you to buy that cute shaker too ;) I am really thankful to them ! Always so nice to try out new stuff.
I put a link to their website if you are interested :)
KEEP GRIDING SWEETHEARTS!!!!
