Weigh-in Wednesday and Protein Ball Recipe

Starting weight: 176.4
Last week weight: 142.4
Current weight:141.6
Current loss: -0.8


Weighing in on a different scale than normal so can't really tell if this is a legit loss.  Next week I will be back to my normal scale.

I have noticed physical changes over the past month or so... most notable in my hands and legs (weird, right).  My quads and hammies are definitely getting back their definition and I can slowly start to see my wrist bones and veins on my hands.  This can most likely be because of my recent workout (muscle pump) but I'll take it! 

And this baby is slowly making it's way back too!!

Protein Peanut Butter Ball

This recipe was originally found on this website but here's my version.  My version is a little too sweet for me so I'm constantly tweaking it till I get the taste and consistency right.  Right now this is my most recent recipe.

  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1/4 cup nut butter (I had plenty of peanut butter to use but normally I stick with almond butter)
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup agave
Mix all ingredients together.  Scoop out 1-tablespoon size portions and store in the refrigerator for about an hour to set.  THAT'S IT!!  Using the recipe above, it will make about 10 protein balls, or 5 servings.  I always make them in batches of 20 balls or more... the boyfriend and I like them a lot. =)

Great loss! Your recipe sounds tasty! I've been doing some reading on agave; some interesting pros and cons out there.

I'll have to try that protein ball with some almond butter!
