I've talked about my fitness journey before here and here. On Sunday, I completed the 60 day Hammer & Chisel program. I'm officially down 36 pounds since January which is a little mind blowing! Hammer & Chisel is a really intense program with a lot of weight lifting, and I actually have a weight lifting bench in my living room. It has 12 different workouts that are about 40 minutes each, and you get 1 rest day per week. There's a specific workout calendar to follow when doing the program, along with a meal plan depending on your weight and goal (lean out vs. build muscle). Now that I've finished Hammer & Chisel I've decided to do a hybrid workout of 21 day fix and the Chisel workouts for the summer. The combination of cardio and weight lifting should help me reach my goal weight by the end of the summer. 

With the weight lifting and intense workouts, protein powder plays a really big factor in my routine. 30 minutes after my workout I have a protein shake with unsweetened vanilla almond milk daily. If I don't have this shake, I feel really off for the rest of the day. Protein powder is crucial for me when it comes to building muscle, and recovering after a workout. Lately I've been using EAS® 100% Whey Protein Powder that I pickup at Walmart. It has 30g of protein which is the ideal amount that your body needs to recover after a workout. This protein powder helps me build stronger and leaner muscles which is perfect for me when doing the Hammer & Chisel workouts. EAS® 100% Whey Protein Powder has a new and improved formula with no fillers, no added sugar, and it's a high-quality pure whey protein which I really love. Make sure you check out the new NBC Show S.T.R.O.N.G where EAS® products will be featured on the June 2nd episode. (9pm EST 8pm CST).

In addition to my protein shakes, I also really like to make these no bake energy bites which are the perfect snack if I'm traveling or on the go! 

Here's what you need:

1 cup of natural creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup of uncooked old fashioned oats
2 tsp of agave (or you can use a mashed banana)
1 scoop of chocolate EAS® 100% Whey Protein Powder
