Okay, okay, my personal whey doesn’t taste completely like sand…just mildly banana flavored sand. H’s, however, does taste like what would happen if you put milk and topsoil in a blender bottle and called it “chocolate flavor.”
We decided to be adventurous this time around, ordering from a really good site that does custom protein blends. The blend we picked out was only ~$25 for five pounds, which is pretty much unheard of. It’s this blend called “Invigorate” that was only fiveish dollars per pound. It is a mix of pea protein, casein, and egg whites.
H’s mom tries to get us to buy Shaklee, which is nearly impossible on a college student budget due to the price. However, we’ve make this unconscious competition with her that we can get a company with just as good ethics as Shaklee does but not the aforementioned company. It would be neat if True Nutrtition could help us win that bet.
Shaklee’s big selling point is that it is “all natural.” H says the Invigorate must be good for us otherwise it wouldn’t taste so awful, to which I can agree. It would be neat if we could get some free Shaklee out of this deal…
We will see what it does to our gains. I’ll keep you posted.

The only things that have gotten me out of the Sunday Doldrums, my phrase for a really intense depression that miraculously activates on Sundays, are three fold today:
1) Had a great morning with H. We made breakfast sandwiches and watched goofy cartoons in our pjs.
2) Finished my paper for my blogwriting class, last assignment of the year in there.
3) NEW LEMON DEMON SONG AND, wait for it, IT’S FROM A PROJECTED NEW ALBUM.
Oh Neil…Neil, Neil, Neil…you just turn all my frowns upside down.
Also, yesterday H and I incorporated a new day into our lifting routine called “Vanity Day.” Basically, we do exercises just for aesthetics for a specific body part we want to look good. Yesterday, he was a curl-bro and I was an ab-bunny. Because it is supposed to technically be a rest day, we consider vanity day as a reward for a week of good exercising. Then, I also spent a third of my rent money on supplements…
Oh well. Investing in one’s self is a good habit to have, especially since this is only going to decrease health problems for us down the road.
Hope your Sunday is treating you well! Mine always improves after I write a little bit…very cathartic.
I’ve got class in a few minutes, but I had to take time to share with you possibly the greatest (if not deadliest) fitness recipe ever.
That’s right: cake made from whey protein powder. It gets better because it only requires one ingredient (an egg white), a microwave, and a glass.
If you have the time, do this. Do this right now. I made it with H and we first thought we were scammed because it kept on not turning out–because we were overcomplicating it.
- Scoop of whey protein powder
- An egg white
- Add a scoop of whey into a tall microwavable glass.
- Put an eggwhite in the glass.
- Stir till well combined
- Microwave for one minute
We tried ours with our 10 lbs of protein powder. The stuff tastes amazing anyway, but eating it like this made it feel like a chocolate brownie.
Now its more like a brownie
