No dilly dally

25 Aug

That has been the motto of lately. HA! If any of you have done the Turbo Fire workout program than you may or may not recall Monica Gray who says “No dilly dally dilly dally, just go hard with intensity, get the job done and then go back home to your real life.” This past week and weekend has consisted of 3 days of work, school, homework, and Working out. Yikes! Is anyone else struggling with the back to school routine?

            Monday morning was the First day of school. Well kinda. Do you remember how we told you how we are also taking two night-time college courses this year? Since we are seniors, this year we only have to take 5 classes, but since we have those 2 colleges courses, then we only really have to take 3 courses at school. After talking to our counselor, our schedule got all rearranged beautifully! We have highschool every other day now 🙂 The three classes we are taking at school are:

                  -Whit’s-

  • 1b- AP Phycology(We have this together)
  • 2b-English 121 Lit
  • 3b-Precalc

                  -Court’s-

  • 1b-AP Phycology
  • 2b-College Algebra
  • 3b-English 121 Lit

Then, on Tuesdays and Thursday nights from 6-8:40 we go to Humanities and Art Appreciation. The school pays for these classes, and so basically by the time we really do go to college we will be entering as sophomores. Pretty Cool, right? What I have learned so far is that College courses are way more chill and layed back than highschool. Court and I had a lot of fun last night at our Humanities class, and our teacher looks like Santa. lol! All I can say is having every other day off is Awesome 🙂 We both got all our HW done last night, so that today we could just relax. And it was super nice to sleep in, in the middle of the week. We even had enough energy to do an intense workout. We managed to whip out 40 minutes of INSANITY, plus some AB action. Cheers to a great senior year ahead!

              Here has been some of the eats from lately

             Turkey chipotle cheddar melt with coconut glaze fruit salad

Overnight oats with puffed millet and millet bread thrown in

Amy’s burrito broken up into a Veggie salad. It was a mexicana salad! 🙂

You like the cute new lunch box?

Finally we got to try the CARROT CAKE LARABAR!!!! OMFG, it was amazing.

Check out this delish creation: A broccoli cheddar soup stuffed bell pepper. Yum.

Have you ever heard of Navita’s Naturals? Well if not, their products are defiantly something to rave about. They sell nutrient rich food that range from Chia, flax, cacao, dried fruits and nuts, fruit powders, and much more. In our lovely package we received Trail mix, Pomegranate powder, and Mulberries.

The trail mix has a variety of different dried fruits I have never even tried. And to a surprise they were all GOOD! This is looking like a great school snack already. 🙂

The first thing we decided to make with this Pomegranate powder was POM overnight oats.

We mixed in 1 tbs into a 1/2 cup of oats a little plain greek yogurt, and the addition of Amazing grass berry mix.

**Verdict~Very fruity and perfectly sweet.

This Elvis Wich was great fuel for a 2 hr and 40 min college class

Maple coffee oats never fail!

And neither do Fresco Chicken Sausage w/ a Sweet Potato

Guess What, Tomorrow is Friday for us!!! We just gotta go to our 3 classes at school, and then Art Appreciation at night, and Friday NO SCHOOL. 🙂 That well be 100% motivation to get through tomorrow. Easy Piecy right. School out at 12:45, go home to eat lunch, workout, prep dinner, work on a lil’ HW,  go to college class, and then FREEDOM! Now remember tomorrow “No dilly dally dilly dally! Just go and get the job done.” HAHAHA. Make that your motto, trust us it will get you through the day. Life is good 🙂

Fall is in the Air

17 Aug

How was the weather in your neck of the woods today? Ours was crisp air, and a light breeze.

Today was day 1 of the of our 4 days off from work. We started it out with a 5:30 AM workout in the basement with Ash. I was so tired and wanted to just sleep in, but as soon as I felt how cold that basement was, I was instantly ready and motivated to get warm. We completed Fire 30 today. Afterwards, Court and I felt really energized, so we decided to take a nice morning walk around the neighborhood.

 We walked for about 45 min, and then came home craving something warm and yumm-ay. Today’s bowl of oats was a Warm stove top cooked bowl of Carrot Cake Oats!

 In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp flax seeds
  • Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla
  • 6 shredded carrots
  • 1/4 of a chopped mango
  • Pineapple tidbits
  • coconut
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • pinch brown sugar
  • drizzle of agave

Top w/

  • Yogurt cottage cheese Icing
  • Pecans

 Paired with some Vanilla Iced Coffee. We had a huge mess to clean up after this breakfast! lol. Dirty dishes were everywhere.

 After breakfast, we finished off our workouts for the day with Jillian Michael’s “No more Trouble Zones” lifting 5 lbs the whole time again. Whew! All those reps with heavier weights than usual really makes you sweat and feel the burn. lol.

On Weight training days, Court and I are both always Starvin’ Marvins. Anyone else? So by 11:30, we were all showered up, and heading to the kitchen once again to make up some lunch. Do you remember the Protein Pizza’s of Katie’s we have made before? Well, we made them again, but today they were more of Italian style.  

 Italian Style Protein Pizza

  • 3/4 cup eggwhites-Broil for 5-10 min

Then add:

  • 2 tbs Ragu Alfredo Sauce
  • Fresh basil
  • spinach
  • onions
  • garlic
  • tomatoes out of the garden
  • 1 Morning star sausage link
  • sprouts
  • veggies
  • Pepper
  • Organic Parsley Cheddar cheese

 We don’t have many groceries in the house, since we are going out of town to the mountains tomorrow, so Dinner was just a bunch of random leftover cereals that were nearly empty, with some Almond butter toast.

 Simple.

 This almond butter is “NEW” to us…

 Here are the stats. I am liking that ingredient list.

 Verdict? ~ So creamy and lush 🙂 A+

Using the zucchini Bread recipe from our Xagave cookbook, we received a while back, we made the a sweet healthy tasting version. This was a great makeover to the traditional recipe our mom usually makes. This one uses Xagave in place of sugar, and whole wheat pastry flour.

 Perfect for Dessert!

It is looking like a movie night with the sisters, so I’m off to go watch “The Killers.” I love Katherine Heigl!

XOXO-Whit

The past couple of days have been hectic with work, back to school shopping, and registering for classes. And there is still so much to do in these last 2 1/2 weeks before school starts. It is overwhelming! Really I should be relaxed, because Senior year needs to be fun and stress free. Is anyone else feeling overwhelmed trying to get everything all done and ready for back to school?

Here are a few of the eats from the past 2 days:

PB cup overnight oats using Amazing meal, greek yogurt, cottage cheese, and PB 😉

 The long lost Easylunchboxes were pulled out to make a quick-lunch for work

Dinner plate:

  • All natural Fresco Asiago Chicken Sausage

I would just like to call this Greek yogurt Fig Newton yogurt! It was awesomly creamy, and the fig in it really tasted like a good ol’ Fig Newton. It was great over the Hot oats and some PB btw.
