From Car trouble to 5 Hour Energy

16 Sep

Hey all, so Court and I are a lil’ hyped up right now.

And all of this energy is the result of a familiar bottle I am sure you see everywhere…I present you with   


5-Hour Energy!!!! 🙂 After looking at all the nutrient stats I have noticed that they are 4 calories, and full of B Vitamins, more than a recommended daily intake, but every once in a while you gotta have an energy drink. It has been a long week, not to mention a long school day. But before we get into the details of drinking this at 5 PM, let me tell ya what this crazy filled day was like.   

5 AM- Kelly Clarkson playing on the radio and wakes me up. Court and I meet in the bathroom with eyes glued shut and struggling to open.  “Ugg, why….” I don’t wanna go to school.” Then, I am shivering in my Target pajama shorts as I put on my Furry green robe and head downstairs.  

5:05 AM- Pull Overnight oats out of the fridge, take kiddie vitamin, make a BIG glass of ice water, and then sit down to eat breakfast with court. We are still half asleep, so there is not much talking going on this morning like most mornings.   

5:30 AM- Go back upstairs lay in bed a little while longer procrastinating, and then finally get ready for school.  

6:30AM- We are off! Whoops, forgot the ipod! That means it is time to listen to that old CD for the 1,oooth time. lol. Court and I know every word, and exactly what song comes next now. Note to self-“Never forget the Ipod again! This CD is getting real old.”  

7:10AM- School is in session, and Court and I have first period together. (AP Psycology).Today was our Chapter 7 Test on “Memory.” We got back our test results within 5 minutes of taking the test(scantron). I got mine back first. 26 out of 35, not to shabby. Then, I lean over to Court “Hey dude what did you get?”    

23, she said, what did you get?” 26! No way, my own sister, the girl who lettered in Academics two years in a row did worse than me? Holey cow, this is such a shocker to me, that I cannot help it but brag a little. LOL okay Alot! Courtney is totally the book smart twin, so I for once felt so proud of my test score. Half the time I do not even bother to ask Court what she got, just because I already know it will be a few more points or a whole letter grade higher than me.   

12:21 PM- 3rd period is over, and I am now FREE for the day, that is at least until Art class tonight at 6. My class gets out a half hour earlier than Courtney’s and we were all out of gas, so I’m thinking I will run to the Gas station and Wal-mart real fast, and then come back to pick her up. I am almost to the car, and start to unlock it. I keep pushing the button, and it is making no sound and not unlocking. “WTF!” I put the key in and hand unlock the car. “Man it is HOTT out. I need to roll down these windows asap.” I put the keys in the ignition and turn. It does not turn on or make any sound. Then, I begin to get frustrated and keep trying. By now I am swearing up a storm, and thinking: “*&%# not another thing to pay for to get fixed.” Luckily only the battery was dead. I called my dad, and he rushed over to Jumpstart the car.   

Since we were on E, I had to rush to the gas station and get gas with the car still on. I know dangerous, but it was the only option.   

1:05 PM- Pick up an angry Courtney, and explain to her what happened, since my phone sucks at sending text, and she did not get any of them.  

1:15 PM- Go home with a grumbling tummy, stuff our faces with some yogurt pretzels as we make some lunch.   

1:45 PM- Grocery shopping with the momasita at Albertsons. The Starby’s samples were calling our names right when we walked in the door, so Court and I rushed over to get our free mini Pumpkin Spice Frappaccinos. ~Can you say yum, or What? Man Pumpkins spice anything really hits the spot 🙂  

3:30 PM- Math Homework time! Court and I sat down at the Kitchen table and worked a good solid hour on HW, before having to eat dinner.   

4:30 PM- Dinner! We picked up some spicy chicken, Joe-Joe Potatoes, Pillsbury Buttermilk rolls, and watermelon at the store. So this mostly fried meal was the easy way out tonight.   

5:10 PM- Time to go to Class! Our art class is a 30 minute drive, and there is rush hour traffic the whole way there, so we usually try to leave pretty early. Now finally to the whole 5-hour energy story. Our night-time college classes go from 6-8:40 every Tuesday and Thursday, and by that time of the night my brain is fried, and it is hard to focus let alone stay awake. Ashley also goes to her night class at the same time, and was telling me how awake she was in class from 5-Hour Energy, so I figured, why not give them a try…right!? At the grocery store before class, we picked up the Lemon-Lime flavor.   

While driving there, we split the bottle, because of the bottle and Ashley’s warning that the whole 2 oz bottle is too much for one time. It will give you extreme energy. Ha is she right half the bottle is PLENTY! Court and I were so pumped and Crazy as we were walking into the school. As we made our way up the stairs, we noticed two of our classmates leaving. They said “Hey guys, No class tonight, but you just gotta turn in your test. THANK YOU JESUS! OMG, so now we were all hyped up and NO CLASS! YESSS! This meant NO driving in the dark, and time to finish all the HW, that got assigned at school today before the real weekend starts.   

With all this extra energy, Court and I have managed to finish ALL of our HW, which would usually be procrastinated all weekend. So lets just say I am feeling really happy already starting this weekend. 🙂 And as a cherry on top, NO SCHOOL, OR WORK TOMORROW!!! All in all, thank you 5 Hour Energy, you made me a productive person for once, and I put all those 5 hours to good hard labor. lol.  

And now I will give you a few of the yum yums for the tum tums lately:  

Cottage cheese Egg-Whites, PB&J toast on Apple-Cinna bread, and Morning Star sausage links


Red Velvet Cake yogurt mess- 1 Light Yoplait "red velvet cake yogurt", 1/2 cranbran vita top, kashi go lean, strawberries, cherries, gingersnap


Apple Cinnamon Raisin OVERNIGHT OATS


Lately we have been pumping up or volumizing our overnight oats more with the addition of puffed millet, and almond milk.  

In the mix:  

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup puffed millet
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1 light apple turnover yoplait yogurt
  • lots of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp sugar-free fat-free jello cheesecake mix

    5-hour energy sounds AWESOME. Dude. Like seriously. Does it have a lot of caffeine though? I love reading about your day like this 🙂

    I would be wayyy too scared to drink one of those 5 hour energy drinks! You guys are brave!

    It looks like it paid off though! Music is like my 5 hour energy, haha. If I can do my homework while listening to it, I get it done faster because I am enjoying the music. Unfortunately, if it’s reading that I have to do, then I can’t listen to the music. 😦

    I don’t drink energy drinks but I have to admit.. I’m very tempted to try that 5-Hour Energy one. It sounds pretty amazing and I DO have a lot of course work I need to do..

    Sorry about the car trouble! That always sucks. Is it fine now?

    So sorry about your car! That stinks so badly. But your meals look awesome, as always. 🙂 ❤

    I have never taken a 5-hour energy shot but I took a Monster energy shot and oh-my-freakin-gosh I was bouncing off the walls (and I was on a charter bus home from a meet). It was pretty darn crazy.
    All your eats look sweet like usual 🙂 I’m gonna try the applesauce mess tonight but probably heat it up first since it’s getting to be fall weather here! Yay!

    I look forward to getting your email updates every week – they all make me smile, and I love getting new ideas for lunches and breakfasts! They always seem to mirror my own creations.. which is kinda creepy, but that just means we both have totally awesome foodie ideas! Best wishes and God bless 🙂 Ben

    I have always been tempted to try those energy drinks when I go to Walmart…they are always set up right by the checkout lanes! I will definitely have to pick on up next time…my schedule is just as busy and i know I could use a boost, too!! lets just say coffee has been my savior as of late, haha.

    Enjoy your weekend…I know I will be savoring every minute!
