I don’t always make a protein shake after working out but this one I wish I could drink all day long. It is that good.
I found this recipe from Tenley Molzahn’s website “Sweet and Free Life”. (Tenley is from the Bachelor Franchise on ABC).
The Peanut Butter Protein Shake is easy to make and it tastes so good.
Give it a try after your next workout!
Peanut Butter Protein Shake
• 1 scoop of Chocolate Whey Protein (Can use vanilla/dark chocolate or another flavor if wanted)
• 1/2 cup Almond Milk
• 2 tbsp. Peanut Butter
• 1/2 cup of ice
Blend all ingredients.
1 serving. Drink after your workout only.
The 20 class challenge in the month of May officially ends tomorrow but I completed my 20th class yesterday!!!!! Whew..2 days to spare :).
I am so obsessed with Pure Barre that I am going for class #21 tonight. I have completed over 60 classes total now!
If you are looking to get in shape for your wedding? Want to bounce back after baby? They offer so many great specials.
It works fast. You see results after just 10 classes. Check out this girls take on her first PB class; http://www.breakfastattarget.com/2013/01/pure-barre-whats-big-deal.html
Have a good Thursday!
Hope your long weekend was amazing!
I wanted to tell you an awesome thing that happened. On January 29 of this year my Mom and I were headed to LA to be on the ELLEN Show!
The show called my Dad here at work on January 28 (Monday). No one believed them when they said “This is Ellen from the Ellen DeGeneres Show”. (This was producer Ellen, not the REAL Ellen). They were looking for my Mom. After some convincing, my Dad finally called my mom and told her to call them back. Mom called them back at 5:00 on Monday. Mom and I were on a plane Tuesday morning at 11am headed out to LA.
Why did they want my Mom on the Ellen show?
We meet the sweetest woman at a 2010 Rotary Christmas party who did not sign up in time and had 4 young children at home who were not going to have a Christmas. Mom took their information and we went shopping! We wrapped the presents and took them over to Ry’Shonda when the kids were at school. We have done this every year since. These children are amazing because their mom is even more amazing! They deserve all the best in the world. Ry’Shonda wrote into Ellen about my mom. She said my Mom is her “Angel” and wanted Ellen to give her something. Well Ellen did that and gave Ry’Shonda even more!
Watch the clip here! http://www.ellentv.com/2013/01/31/a-heartwarming-surprise-for-ryshonda/
We were only in LA for 2 days. We made the most of it! Stayed at the Roosevelt Hotel right on Hollywood Blvd! It was such a great experience!

Watch what Ellen did for Ry’Shonda and her 4 children. AMAZING!
Be kind to one another 🙂

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
Stay safe and have a fun weekend! It is chilly here is Ohio so I doubt many people are going to the pool.
My Memorial day weekend consist of Pure Barre, Tim McGraw, Put In Bay, Drinks, Food, Friends & Family.

I am 17 classes through the PB challenge! My body hurts. Give Pure Barre a try y’all!
What are your plans for this weekend?
Rest in Peace Zach Sobiech. Cancer claimed another young life.
Zach passed away on Monday 5/20/2013. He was 18. You may recognize Zach.
He made this now famous video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDC97j6lfyc This is his song, “Clouds”. He wrote and performed this after hearing he only had months to live.
This was a documentary made on Zach, http://www.upworthy.com/this-kid-just-died-what-he-left-behind-is-wondtacular-rip?g=2 . Seriously, what a GREAT person. I wish I could have met him. I am sorry Zach. Sorry that the Cancer world failed you. This is a must watch. You will not regret it.
Some awesome people made this happen, all for Zach. Celebrity music video for “Clouds”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zxXAtmmLLc
To Zach’s family; I am very sorry. Please know that he was such an inspiration to a lot of people. He made everyone a better person.
Huffington Post article on Zach; http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/21/zach-sobiech-18yearold-cl_n_3312838.html
We a need awareness. We need more money. We need more research. We need a CURE.
Please let Zach inspire you.
I watch a lot of Sportscenter. I enjoy all things sports. Always have.
Yesterday I saw the most amazing “SC: Moving Forward” segment featuring the Surfing Dog, Ricochet.
I cried. A lot. I love dogs and I do not understand people who don’t. Dogs become part of your family. They are so special and can do amazing things. Like Ricochet.
Ricochet showed promise as a puppy to be a well trained service dog for people with disabilities. Around 16 months, that all changed. She stopped responding to training. She loved the water and had a lot of energy. The one thing she did have was balance. She got a surfboard and never looked back.
She now helps people with disabilities get back in the water and on a surfboard with her behind them.
Please watch this story and have tissues close by. So amazing. So touching. So inspirational.
Thank you ESPN/Sportscenter for this great story.
This weekend went way too fast. Well they all go fast!
Went over for a cookout over at Cortney and Tristan’s place on Friday (Cortney has been my best friend since about 8th grade). I drank way too much Riesling and Fireball Whiskey. If you have not had Fireball you are missing out. It is a cinnamon whiskey. Goes down like candy 🙂
Had Pure Barre on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Both classes kicked my ass. I am getting so much better at everything and really starting to notice a difference in my body. So worth it.
Saturday night was awesome. Went with the family to the new Columbus Casino (Hollywood). I lost all my money. One of the guys I work with is in a group called “Touch” and they performed at the casino! A bunch of us from work went up to support him.
They are such a fun Motown group who sing so many old classics along with some new stuff. I mean how awesome are those gold suits?
Here is a clip I found on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pmoo6BdwYH0 (The gentleman I work with, Spoon, is the one with the solo parts)! They may be on the new TV show coming to NBC called “The Winner is” starting in July. Keep an eye out! 😉
Finished the weekend off by playing our first 7.5 combo match with my Mom as my partner! We lost but we played really well and had fun.
Sad it is Monday but next weekend is going to be so much fun! Tim McGraw concert with Cortney followed by a night in Put In Bay together for one of our friends Bachelorette parties! I have a feeling I will not be drinking for a while after this weekend. Yikes.
How was your weekend?
Heck yes boyfriend material. Gave you a good laugh for today! Handsome Man.
Hope everyone has a good Friday followed by an even better weekend!
I am loving Florida Georgia Line lately. Check them out if you haven’t yet.
