 Hey Guys! This has been the best most stress-free week of school ever so far 🙂

I really hope all of you guys are having a great week too! How is school, managing workout, eating healthy, staying organized, etc going? We are managing pretty well, but I really think it all has to do with having every other day of school off. And this week we just have school tomorrow, work on Thursday, as well as our Art Class Thursday night, and then we are done for the week. Friday is a FREE day at home, Saturday we have work from 8-4, and then Sunday off. Not bad at all right? Oh, and I finally figured out that not matter what every weekend is a 3 day weekend for Court and I. Pretty Cool 🙂

As far as working out goes, the other day we were surfing on the fitness section of OnDemand workouts, and came across Rock Hard Body by Jake. This workout is an awesome total body sculptor. It is 45 minutes of pure cardio and strength training. And the trainer Steve Maresca is awesome! They use medicine balls, but instead Court and I used a 8lb dumbbell. You guys should try out this workout and let us know how you like it, because it was probably equally as hard as Insanity as far a sweating and breathing heavy go. lol
 
 After seeing Gracie’s Sweet Potato Pie Oatmeal a few weeks ago, Court and I just had to recreate it! And so last Friday that is just what we did 🙂 I wanted this voluminous delish bowl of oats to never end. lol. 

 

Sweet Potato Pie Oats

In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cooked and mashed sweet potato
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • cinnamon
  • vanilla extract+maple extract
  • stevia

Toppings

  • Marshmallow Fluff
  • Vanilla Yogurt
  • Cinnamon
  • Optional-Crushed nuts

 Decadent Heaven

 Breakfast for lunch has also been a yummy option lately. And I cannot get enough of Juicy Nectarines.

 When you are sick of bars for a snack, and there is nothing else to turn to Yogurt messes never fail.

 Caribbean Shrimp with Brown rice

In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • veggies
  • Spike seasoned tofu
  • Caribbean seasoned shrimp

Sunday morning Court, Ash, and I had breakfast at the kitchen table all together which was totally not normal. We all looked at the ads, and just talked. It was nice 🙂 Court and I enjoyed Strawberry oatgurt with pumpkin spice coffee, and Ash made an Elvis Sandwich.(She is so addicted to PB&Banana now!!! LOL, too funny) 

Every Sunday our family fills out Football picks, everyone puts in a dollar, and the person who gets the most points from all their teams winning gets all $5. It is kinda like Fantasy football, which a husband, boyfriend, or brother of yours might do online. Anywho, we do them every week, and this week I beat my dad by 1 point, so I am a lucky girl who now how $5 extra dollars in my wallet! Cha-Ching$$

The best combo ever is taking Cinnamon Date Manna bread, then heat it up, and top it off with PB&Pumpkin butter. Seriously it taste like a decadent dessert or Blondie.  

 With Molly’s suggestion to heat up apple sauce, we tried that when making this “Apple Sauce Mess” on the side of a smothered burrito.

 Pumped up Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats

In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup
  • 1/3 cup puffed millet
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp flax seeds
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 6 oz container of Light Apple Turnover Yogurt(Yoplait)
  • Lots of Cinnamon
  • Raisins
  • Chopped Apple Slices

Toppings

  • PB
  • Kashi GoLean Crunch
  • Fiber One

 PB Banana&Honey Sammie

 Big ol’ Veggie salad w/ a Garlic White Chicken Lean Pocket

 Bratwurst with Butternut Squash

 More Yogurt messes, but this time for dessert…

Since we did not have school today, Court and I woke up leisurely around 9, and watched some morning shows while whipping up some Maple Coffee Oats.  

Lately the afternoons have been looking a little dreary and dark, so this Fall like day called for a Panini with Lentil Soup.  

 

Who is excited for the Biggest Loser Premiere tonight? We are! And in honor we are cooking some Almond Crusted Chicken for dinner straight out of Jillian’s Cookbook. LOL 🙂 Have a great night guys! Relax with the ones you love♥ Oh and we posted the workout video below. DO IT!!!

    Can you come cook for me? 🙂 Haha, I love all of your meals! I know I say that every time I comment..but, it’s the truth! I wish I had more time to cook such delicious things here at college. It’s also a problem concerning space. There isn’t much room to store food items. I am hoping next year that I can live in a campus house where there will be a BIG kitchen with lots of space!
