Shaking Things Up and Some Sharing

Shaking Things Up and Some Sharing



5 mile treadmill run at the gym in my new Elixir 8s– 1 mile warm-up, 3 miles at 6:40 pace with a minute rest in between, 1 mile cool down

Taught 45 minute BOSU class after a shoe change into my Reebok Real Flex shoes 


The boys and I also did a little 15 minute resistance band workout in the family room with a couple of exercises. Super old post and video, but some of the moves we did are here: Top Six Upper Body Resistance Band Moves.


Some random eats from the day just because I found myself taking pictures. Gee, that’s weird.

Breakfast was a savory breakfast STUFTwich just like the one I had over the weekend with turkey bacon and a grain free microwave English muffin.


Oh and hey, look at that, while I burned some kabocha squash, I also managed to burn the boys’ grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch.


Mother of the year. Don’t even try to compete with me. Ha.


They ended up splitting a sandwich with the two good halves that I salvaged. Thank goodness we like to share around here.

My big roasted kabocha squash bowl got a little extra something something with the addition of some pomegranate arils (from Costco, ready to eat).


I tried to get the boys to drink some Buzz Lightyear juice to help wash down their gourmet sandwich while the selfish mama that I am treated myself to one of these.


Oh heck yes, three days in a row with this little cake batter protein shake.

I guess it’s time to give you the recipe really quick.

Basically, I prepare the ice cube trays just like I do for creamy dreamy ice cream. Instead of adding more almond milk when blending I add anywhere from 1/2 -1 cup of GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shake™ – Vanilla Bean.

Yep, the same stuff I’ve been using in my vanilla protein latte drinks.


So since I made it again yesterday for the third day in a row and I’m fairly certain I’ll be making it again today, here you go.



Holy smokes, seriously, it came out so thick and creamy and delicious. It’s like a cake batter version of a Wendy’s Frosty, only it tastes even better, has way less calories and even has some good for you protein.


Um, yeah.


It’s my new favorite.

You can vary the amount of the protein shake you add in depending on if you want to sip it like a shake


or eat it like protein ice cream.


It all depends on the day (or night), you know?



Okay, here are a couple super cool things worth sharing before I go.

There’s this new thing I learned about recently called a Milestone Pod that tracks your mileage on your pair of shoes. As someone who never keeps track, I really want to get my hands on one of these.


You can get all the info on these gadgets, the campaign and the other cool features they have here.


There’s also a great deal going on right now with my favorite sock company, Pro Compression, and their calf sleeves.


Yeah, 44% off any of the sleeves with the code GB300. Freaking awesome!


And….. you can still get 20% off any of Dr. Jason (the coolest coach ever) Karp’s, customized running training plans. He can put a plan together for any distance race or any running level. He knows his stuff. Click here for more details or just email him at


and let him know you’re STUFT Mama’s friend.



Time to get a move on.

Well, actually a little spin class on. He he.


Happy Wednesday!


Do you still eat ice cream/shakes even when it’s cold outside?

Do you prefer compression socks or sleeves?

Do you keep track of mileage on your running shoes?

    If I were to purchase regular compression socks to wear to work and I have never purchased them and don’t know what to look for, what do I get?

    man, i gotta say, that shake looks to die for! i still love cold food even when it’s cold outside… it’s currently in 16 out here in baltimore, and i had a smoothie last night for part of my dinner! 🙂

    Becky Przy says:

    At least you make your kids lunches instead of giving them McDonalds every day!

    Yes, I eat smoothies/ice cream even when its cold out. It was -20 yesterday and I drank a ice cold smoothie on the way to work.

    I am horrible at tracking mileage on my shoes. I usually just look at the bottom to see how worn they are.

  4. 4

    is it just me or does a new pair of workout shoes just make you excited to work out? in the funk i’m in though (with exercising), i’d need a new pair everyday of the week!

    and that ice cream looks good enough to eat for breakfast…even in the winter!!!

  5. 5

    That cake batter protein shake sounds great! And ya. I totally defy the weather with my eats. We have a wind chill of -2 degrees right now and I could definitely go for some banana ice cream 😀

    I am not opposed to ice cream in the cold weather. It’s good always! I definitely keep track of the miles on my shoes. I always write the date I bought them in permanent marker on the side of the heel of the shoe. That way, if I lose track of my miles or forget to add them up, I at least know when I got them and can estimate.

    I was just telling Tony that I need to be better about keeping track of my mileage. I do a weekly tally in my head, but then not so much after that. I love my compression socks, but I need to get me some sleeves. Tony prefers the sleeves and now I want to try them. Have a great Wednesday my friend!

    I seriously just licked my screen. Oh my goodness I could dive into a pool of that shake and drink my way out…shamelessly.

  9. 9

    I buy the ready-to-eat pomegranate arils from Costco too and I have been obsessed with them lately. yum!

  10. 10

    I watched your video for making the healthy ice cream–I can’t wait to try it! 🙂

    I’m tempted to buy the compression sleeves. Are yours still holding up? I’m a big fan of the ones I have, but they are expensive! It would be nice to take advantage of this deal if you think they’re really good quality, and would last (that’s key!).

  11. 11

    I don’t have ice cream and smoothies quite as much during the winter months, but lately I’ve been craving dairy like it’s nobody’s business so smoothies have been a regular thing around here these days. 😉 Your protein smoothie sounds amazing!!

    At the risk of sounding like a crazy stalker – I wish we lived in the same place so I could take your classes at the gym!!! Love BOSU class!!!

    I’m an every nighter on the ice cream! I always justify it by saying A) I need to get good daily use of the spendy Vitamix B) its low calorie & high protein!
    it was 20-25 below around the holidays & I was blending up a storm. I once read that the state of Alaska is one of the highest in the nation in ice cream consumption- I am holding up my end of the deal for sure 😉 sometimes I even make hot tea to go with it to warm me up! cake batter ice cream with vanilla chai tea- match made in heaven

    I have been trying to keep track of the mileage I put on my running shoes. I bought a Garmin watch but it has been wayyyy to cold to run outside and sadly I don’t think it will work while I am on the treadmill.

  15. 15

    That Milestone Pod looks like a pretty cool gadget, but I’m working on being better about tracking my workouts so I probably shouldn’t go that route. it will ruin part of the incentive for me to track. 🙂

    I think I would love that cake batter shake a little too much! It sounds so yummy!

  17. 17

    LOOK AT THOSE pomegranate seeds! YUMMY! I love the color and the tartness of those bad boys and they of course pair so well with nut butter. 🙂 Have a fabulous day Rock Star! XO

  18. 18

    YES! I love shakes/ice cream even in the middle of winter!
    I do not keep track of mileage – just have an idea of how many miles based on how they look and feel. LOL
    Just started wearing Compression Socks =) =) ProCompression, of course. Duh =)

    Hmm.. I’ve been wearing the low cut pro compression socks and was saving up for the marathon socks. I may not be able to pass up the deal on the sleeves!

    Have you found the vanilla, butter and nut flavor at a regular grocery, or do you order it online?

    This is a great giveaway and your boys are so cute! I am so jealous of your backyard squash, 😉

    I’ve been keeping track of my miles/routes on mapmyrun.com. i like all the graphs that go with it too (nerd.) so, i tried a pair of compression socks and a pair of compression sleeves and i have a problem: my calves are too big! seriously. 15.5″ around. i wear size 8 shoes. so the sock foot part is too big, and i can’t seem to find sleeves that are comfortable. Do you have any ideas?! i would love to wear these marvelous socks. that cake batter protein shake looks really good! i am going to try that and the microwave muffins. 🙂
