Happy Monday Everyone! How was your Labor Day Weekend? I”m sure most of you tried to soak up the last couple days of summer, or had bbq’s with the family. I’d love to hear all about it, so please share :).
Our weekend started off very relaxing. Saturday consisted of a 10 miler, then the hubby & I watched college football the rest of the evening. Sadly, both Penn State & Auburn lost this weekend. I just keep telling myself they lost on purpose so next week they can come out & surprise everyone :). Sunday we watched movies, and then I had my root canal appointment. Ugh guys, It was AWFUL! Here to find out one of my canals was blocked (you have three), so he wasn’t able to get past that without causing much pain. He put some medicine in it, and we reschedule for the 18th (the day after we return from vacation). Well about 2 hours later after the numbness wore off, I was in immediate pain. You know the pain where you can’t even think or function because it hurts that bad. We rushed back to the dentist, who felt absolutely awful by the way, and gave me another injection. Thankfully the canal had opened by now, and we were able to go on w/ the procedure (that was after yet another injection).
So yes I may be in pain and wishing I could rip that side of my face off, however I’m very thankful that it’s over & done with, and I wont’ have to worry about it over vacation. See, theres always a positive in a bad situation guys! I do have to go back once we return to see if I need another root canal on a different tooth (bad luck right? haha).
Reason #2 why today is Marvelous is because I’m going to start packing for our vacation!! Ah, no more Mondays left until our trip. Only today, tomorrow, Wednesday & Thursday to get through!! I absolutely love packing.. but can kinda get carried away too. Anyone else have that problem? haha.
&& reason #3 why today is Marvelous. I have a product review to share with y’all. On Saturday I received quite a few packages. One from Gaspari Nutrition, one from BoomChicka, one from Beanfields Snacks (which I won from the amazing Alex over @ TheRunWithin), and one from my beautiful Mom. With all those packages & snacks, there will be a couple of product reviews coming up so be prepared :). Today I wanted to share my review on the product Gaspari Nutrition Sent: MyoFusion Probiotic Protein Powder.
Gaspari Myofusion Probiotic Series
I reached out to Gaspari Nutrition about 3 weeks ago. You all know my love for this protein powder, and how I swear by it. I’m sure y’all could only imagine my excitement when they offered to send me a sample package. Let’s just say I was jumping up and down like a little girl, and smiling from ear to ear. I received this package on Saturday & couldn’t wait to dig in. Even though I’ve tried most of the flavors already, they did send a new-to-me one as well… Banana Perfection. I haven’t tried it yet, and am going to wait until were on vacation (they are the perfect vacation sizes, so I want to wait). So with all that being said, I wanted to tell you a bit about the product.
This Probiotic version includes a “6 stage protein blend”, which includes: Whey Protein Concentrate, Whey Protein Hydrolysate, Brown Rice Protein Concentrate, Casein Milk Protein Isolate, Egg Albumin, and Whey Protein Isolate. Also included is their patented “Ganeden BC30 Probiotic” which supports immune & digestive health.
- One scoop is 39 grams @ 150 calories
- 2 grams of fat
- 24 grams of blended protein
- 9 grams of carbohydrates
- 160 milligrams of sodium
I can’t say enough how amazing the taste is. It’s by far the best tasting protein powder I’ve tried. They nail the flavors to the T. They offer 7 different flavors: Banana Perfection, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cinnamon Roll, Cookies and Cream, Milk Chocolate, Strawberries and Crème & Delicious Vanilla. Out of all the flavors I’ve tried (Cinnamon Roll, Milk Chocolate & Delicious Vanilla) I give it a 10/10.
- No clumps or grains when mixed with milk or water.
- No need for a blender, because a shaker will blend the drink within 10-15 seconds.
- It’s a fairly thick mix, which I enjoy because it gives your smoothies/milkshakes a thicker texture. && I know there isn’t anyone out there that doesn’t enjoy a thick & creamy drink :).
On the Gaspari Nutrition website:
- 2 pound container $30.00
- 5 pound container $54.99
On the Vitacost Website (where I order mine from)
