Ginger - go to a store like Food-4-Less and buy some soybeans. Mine came in bulk, salted and roasted and they taste like crunchy little spanish peanuts. I also buy whey protein powder, lean beef jerky, canned tuna, special-K protein water, boiled eggs (well, I boil them myself...they come raw in the package, heh), turkey breast lunch meat, natural peanut butter. They're all good for protein. I don't buy lean steaks just because they're so spendy these days. Also, there's an array of protein bars out there, just read the label to find the one with the type of soy you're looking for. I haven't found any good recipes for my own protein bars yet...but I'mma lookin! Some nights I just feel so tired and don't want to work out at all. I think, I'll do it tomorrow. I'll hit the weights extra heavy tomorrow. But I always wind up in my gym working out. Don't think of it as an option, think of it as something God is allowing you to do. We're blessed in that we have the ability to exercise, oh wow! We're blessed with that ability. He gave it to us. He wants us to use it. It's a great priviledge. If I give myself permission to skip once (without being sick, emergencies, etc.) then it'll be easier to skip another time, so I don't even start with my long, long, long list of excuses, heh.
