My Workout of the Week and a Soy Protein Latte

Why hello. Long time, lots of rest, no blog.

Let’s see, my biggest workout this week may have been my massive trip to Costco last night after teaching spin. I wish I was joking.

You know it’s bad when they ask you if this is all one order and when you can’t see over the cart.

At least I one person or feline that helped unload once I got home.

It’s cold and cloudy this evening, but I’m pretty excited about it because in my book it means extra snuggles and family date night in pajamas.

I can’t wait.


Even though workouts are minimal this week I’m making sure to take care of my body and fuel my muscles with the protein they need.

If you’ve been a reader you know I’m obsessed with Silk almondmilk and the new cashewmilk. I love that they sell it at Costco and obviously bought it during my escapade last night.

I’ve been adding the soymilk into the mix lately though too.

I used to drink soy lattes every single morning. I love vanilla soymilk, but ever since I discovered almondmilk I haven’t really been having soymilk that often until recently.

Right now I have these two options in our fridge from Silk.


I do really like that Silk Soymilk has the extra protein that other nut milks don’t have. Since I don’t drink regular dairy milk, soymilk is really the only other nondairy option that has the plant protein benefit.


It’s also just sweet enough to not have to add anything else to it. It goes well with just about anything and could be used as a coffee creamer on it’s own or in a big bowl of cereal. We’ve been doing the soymilk and Mighty Flakes over here lately.


We’re all pretty happy about it.



Last Sunday after the race we made a quick stop and I got a soymilk latte for the drive home. I just happen to have a packet of vanilla protein powder and thought it would be brilliant to add it to the latte. It was and it was delicious, but I did make a bit of a mess.

It was so good though that I had to recreate it again at home just a couple times this week.


Mmmmmm hmmm….

I’ve made regular Silk Soymilk lattes before, but this week I’ve been wanting even a little more protein to help recovery.

Here’s how it’s been going down.

I take some cold brew coffee and pour it over ice, then I blend a scoop of Vega Sport protein powder with 2 cups of vanilla Silk Soymilk.


I add that to the glass and viola.



I’m so glad I rediscovered soymilk. It’s nice to change things up and know there’s a nondairy milk option that has protein.


I’m sticking to the protein lattes for now, but need to try making some non dairy ice cream with this soymillk.

Adding it my list.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Hope all you mothers out there get some extra special attention and cuddles.

    Ok so this doesn’t really have that much to do with your post although I love Costco and silk milk! But question – how do you and your husband /family work out your running and training schedule with the boys ?? I have kids and it is a struggle to get out and run . It’s a little different at our house because setting an alarm doesn’t work because my 18 month old gets up with whoever gets up first at our house ! But with my husband also having his own interests, and family time on the weekend , training ends up being a stressful experience for everyone , even though running is truly a passion of mine . Tips? Advice ?

      It was hard when the boys were younger. I had to take advantage of any small chunk of time I had. Schedule at least one day for you to just go out and have time to run. Then do what you can. I was lucky enough to work at a gym that could watch the boys so I used the treadmill there a lot and just ran as much as I could in the hour they were in play care. 🙂

    Hi. I’ve been following your blog now for a bit and I think you’re amazng! Such an inspirational person! Thank you!! And happy Mother’s Day:-)
    I do have a question. I just ran my second half marathon today (eugene Oregon). I was not as trained as I should have been, but went ahead and did it anyway. I did great up till mile 10, then hit a brick wall. My feet, the bottoms, hurt soo bad after about 8 miles. Not blisters, but just pain from striking the concrete. Shoes aren’t too old. Have you had this happen? Not sure if my feet just are not used to all the pounding or if it’s my shoes (asics). Any thoughts or ideas? 🙂
    Thank you for sharing all that you do.

      So sorry about your foot!!!!! That has happened to me before. IT might be your shoes or just because of the constant pounding. My feet got used to it and it improved, but maybe insoles would help? I’m not a professional though so I’m not sure. Or you might want to do see if you need shoes with more or less stability. Let me know!!!!!

    My kitty does about the same amount of “helping” with the unloading when I get in from Costco. Generally this also includes trying to steal anything she can to eat in the process as well. I might as well have a ground-scavenging little puppy for all of the scraps she’s always eating off the floor.
