5 Things Friday

1. It's almost summer. That is all.

2. New Favorite snack: protein cake "thingy":
WHY have I never done this before?
I know, it looks weird(kind of like a biscuit!), but it tastes good, I swear. Something different than just drinking a shake, at least. I make it different ways, but my favorite is using Dymatize Elite Gourmet chocolate peanut butter, 2 tbsp almond milk, 3 tbsp egg whites, 1 tbsp peanut butter, and a 1/2 tsp of baking powder. Mix and microwave for about 45 seconds. Top with peanut butter. I usually have it as my bedtime snack.
3. My 4 Rep max results for this week's lifts:
Push Press: 115lbs
Close grip bench: 115lbs
Squat: 190lbs 
Deadlift: 205
I reached my goals on everything, so I'm happy. I think the handful of peanut butter m&ms I had right before the gym helped me on leg day. ;) I was mad that I forgot my camera to get a video of my squats and deads! For one, to check my form, and for another...so that no one can call me liar. ;) I will make sure to tape my 3 rep max next month! 
4. Book I'm reading: I just finished "The Christian in Complete Armour", Volume 1, and it is good stuff. I would definitely recommend it for every Christian.

5. I'm loving the song, "Strangely Dim" by Francesca Battistelli. A beautiful voice and beautiful lyrics!
“When I fix my eyes on all that You are
Then every doubt I feel deep in my heart
Grows strangely dim...
All my worries fade and fall to the ground
Cause when I seek Your face and don't look around
Any place I'm in grows strangely dim.”


  1. My protein powder doesn't seem to microwave well. Hmmm, I may need to try again, & if needed, maybe I'll buy some Dymatize.

    Great job on hitting all your goals! Awesome work!!

    I love Francesca Battistelli too. Her voice is amazing, just like her music.

    Have a great wknd!!

    1. Yes, I have found that some protein powders don't work well. I have to have multiple types of protein-some for drinking and some for baking/microwaving. Have a great weekend also!! :)

  2. Amazing 4 rep maxes girl!!!!! So proud of you :) Also, your bedtime snack sounds great :) Yum
