900 Burpees in 10 days and brown smoothies to boot!

That subject is a lie.  It’s only 11am here so I’ve only done my first round of burpees for the day, making it 840 burpees so far.  But by the end of the day it will be 900, even though I’ll be  kicking and screaming the whole way.  I am SORE!!!  Yesterday I completed Zuzka’s ZWOW #43 (on top of the 90 burpees for the day) and it was a total killer.  She apparently recorded it right before Thanksgiving so it was a particularly hard workout.  I woke up in the middle of the night with a stomach ache only to realize my abs are just that sore.  I guess in the grand scheme of things this is a good thing.  But let me tell you, I was NOT excited to do those first 30 burpees this morning.  I think I see 90 minute of yoga in my future to try to stretch this body out!

This morning I made a delicious tasting smoothie, despite it being brown.  Check it out..

Brown Rice Smoothie

 Ingredients:

  • 1 packet of NutriBiotic Brown Rice Protein
  • 1 Banana
  • Small handful of frozen strawberries
  • Small handful of frozen pineapple
  • Small handful of frozen mango
  • Handful of spinach
  • 1 tbs of chia seeds

I had picked up one packet of the brown rice protein at my local coop and decided to give it a try.  I’m a huge fan of the fact that it only has one ingredient and it’s 80% protein.  It’s also soy/gluten/GMO-free.  I’ll say that the smoothie tastes delicious but it is a little thick, though not as thick as the Warrior Food or Peaceful Planet powders.  It’s about the same texture as the Warrior Food, so grittier than Peaceful Planet or Fat Flush.  Overall, I’d use it again but I’m not madly in love with it.  I’m still searching for that perfect protein powder.  Let me know if you have any suggestions!  I’ll give this one an A-.
