Finally some real sleep

27 May

Who’d thunk it, but we got 10 very fantabulous hours of sleep last night. Wewh, that includes hitting the hay around ten, and waking up with no alarm this morning. It’s crazy how late your body sleeps when you let it rest all it wants for one night. lol All I can say is we feel like brand new woman. lol Kinda like we went to a spa and came back. Plus I think that intense cardio yesterday really helped the whole sleeping factor as well.

So what was on the menu for this morning???? Well, with no bananas or egg whites insight we just decided to pop open a can or Organic Pumpkin and have Pumpkin oats.

Serves 1:

-In the mix-

  • 1/4 cup of old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup oat bran
  • 1/4 cup of almond milk
  • 1 cup of water
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Ginger
  • Cloves

Toppings:

  • Mighty Maple PB
  • Honey greek Yogurt
  • Galaxy granola
  • Cinnamon agave apple chunks

And to go alongside a C+W original steamer with (1 cup skim milk, 1 pkt stevia, 3 drops of maple extract, and lots of cinnamon) Microwaved for about 2 min 30 sec, since we don’t have any fancy frother’s at home. Any other suggestions for the best way to froth milk besides the microwave?

After Breakfast, we let our tummies settle, then completed a strength training day which consisted of Jillian Michael’s No more Troublezones video. This DVD is amazing, and really has your arms shaking by the end, as well as super sore abs.

Lunch is all props to Courtney. She cooked us up apricot glazed tilapia on a bed of romaine lettuce, with steamed veggies, dried cherries, and pumpkin seeds. And alongside was a Crystal Light Mango Peach Spitzer and a Dr. Kracker flat-bread.

*Spread on top is half of a laughing cow garlic&herb wedge

**Verdict: This flavor is tasty, the cheddar is flavorful, and I like having sunflower seeds in my cracker. Overall, we like. 🙂

I saw on another bloggers page that Starbucks has their clear tumblers for sale again right now. Court and I have been wanting one forever! Or just a cute one with a glass straw. Since summer’s basically here, smoothies are going to be a must for a  light cold breakfast, snack, etc.

Some plans for tonight include going to Which Wich for dinner and seeing Sex in the City 2 with the siblings. YUP YUP, can’t wait.

Are you a snack Junkie?

 

 

 

Do you munch all day? Can’t control it? Have a mega sweet tooth? Don’t know any other snack but a granola bar?

Here are some Court&Whit 100% approved snacks:

First off combos that combine a protein with a carb give you energy, and then keep you full a lot longer

        Try pairing:

  • 1 skim string cheese with 15 small whole grain crackers
  • 1 cup of low-fat yogurt with 1 sheet of graham cracker mashed in
  • 11 almonds with 10 m&m’s to make a trail mix
  • 1 small skim latte with an oatmeal raisin cookie
  • 2 celery sticks rolled up in light cream cheese and low sodium turkey

If your craving chocolate have:

  • A Cocoa Banana smoothie (1 cup of milk, 1 banana, 2 tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder, 3 ice cubes)

  •  100 cal chocolate covered Pretzels

  • Starbucks skinny mocha
  • Jello sugar-free pudding with granola mixed in

Other ideas:

  • Fruit paired with PB yogurt dipping sauce(mix 6 oz plain yogurt with 2 tsp of PB)
  • 6 almonds, a square of dark chocolate, and 1/4 cup of raspberries
  • A rice cake with fruit preserves yogurt and banana on top
  • 1 single serve bag of natural popcorn
  • Apples covered with 1 tbs PB, 1 tbs of pumpkin, and sprinkled with cinnamon

Other mini snacks that can hold you over are Crystal Light Strawberry Banana Hunger Curve mixed into your water bottle, or just simply a piece of Extra sugar-free gum.

 A typical sugar-lovers rehab day could look like:

Breakfast:

  • 2 frozen Van’s or Nature’s Path Waffles topped with 2/3 cup of strawberries tossed with lemon zest and 2 tsp of maple syrup
  • 1 C+W Steamer (1 cup of skim milk, stevia pkt, cinnamon, and an addition of maple,almond, or vanilla extract)-microwave/steam 2-3 min

Lunch:

  • Salad with chicken-4 oz grilled chicken breast, romaine lettuce, red onion, 1/3 cup of corn or beans and tbs of low-fat dressing

Snack:

  • 1/2 papaya drizzled with lime juice

Dinner:

  • Turkey burger on whole-wheat bun
  • sweet potato baked fries
  • 1 corn on the cobb with light buttery spread and sea salt

Dessert:

  • 1 cup of fresh fruit with 2 tbsp of fat-free dark chocolate syrup(like Hershey’s special dark)
