Monday’s are like a mountain

5 Apr

 Good morning! School is back in session, and we got about 7 weeks to go till Summer. Let the countdowns begin=) This morning’s breakfast was prepped in our handy easy lunchboxes the night before. Overnight Oats, with toppings in the side compartments. Man what a time saver.

 This was truly a bowl of Tropical Sunshine Over-night Oats, In the mix:

  • 1 pkg of Coach’s Oats
  • 1/4 cup of Pineapple coconut yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of Pomegranate Kefir
  • 1/4 cup of Honey Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp chia
  • 1 tsp flax
  • 1 tsp wheat germ

Toppings:

  • Strawberries, Kiwi, Mango
  • Unsweetened coconut
  • Cranberry Trail mix
  • Kashi go lean cereal
  • Silvered Almonds

 

 It was Luscious!

Since today is a “B” day at school, we packed Vanilla Almond Luna Bars for a snack during 3rd period.

We have 4 of these handy dandy containers life savers, so we also packed our lunch too;)

In the Lunchbox:

  • Egg White Salad Sandwich on Sandwich thin(Used a melted laughing cow wedge instead of Mayo)
  • Baby Carrots with Humus
  • Lime CheeCha Puffs

 

On the Agenda today:

  1. Get through School
  2. Finish Workout (Fit Test, and Max Interval circuit…Yikes!)
  3. Make Din-Din
  4. Clean room (it is a disaster)
  5. Do HW if any? So far none
  6. Blog
  7. Sleep=)

Sometimes Monday’s can feel like a mountain, but we will make it through this week!

Walking on Egg shells

28 Mar

-Saturday, March 27th- 

 Breakfast this morning was once again another pumpkin cauncaction oats, but this one turned out much better than yesterdays. And I really think having the pumpkin butter made all the difference.

 Court and I were so excited to find this at Albertson’s, they never have pumpkin butter there.

 

 Paired with our oats we made the famous Steamers:

  • 1 1/2 cup of skim milk
  • 1 pkt of sweetner(Splenda/Stevia)
  • Lots of Cinnamon

*Microwave for 2 min, or until frothy like

We worked 8-4:30 today, so we packed our lunches last night. And look no plastic, what good little eco friendly twins we are. lol.

 

When we got to work, Court and I found out that two more people got fired, so it literally feels like we’re walking on egg shells at work. That’s okay though, because we are good little employees.

Lunch:

  • Fruit Salad- Dried cranberries, silvered almonds, clem, annies raspberry vinaigrette
  • Split a pink lady apple
  • 1 Apple cinnamon fig bar

 Pink lady apples are so flavorful, if you have not tried them yet, I highly recommend them. They are so juicy, and taste like candy=)

 Apple fig bars are becoming a new obsession.

Those nine hours of work felt like a century! Even though we got those shoe inserts last week, my feet were still pretty beat. Standing up for that many hours is no bueno to  the feet, legs, or back. Seriously, I need a massage my whole body is tense:(

On the way home, Court and I were famished, so we split this Cliff Peanut Toffee Buzz bar. And I have decided that one, and the carrot cake one are two of my fav. Cliff bars. Actually, toffee anything is good.

 

 When we got home, snack #2 came into play, when we saw that there were a few packages on the kitchen counter that came in the mail for us. One of them was OWater.

OWater Review:

 About the Product:

  • 35% less sugar than typical sports drinks, only 87 calories per bottle
  • Sweetened with pure cane sugar. No High fructose Corn Syrup
  • Higher electrolyte content than competitors, with added antioxidants
  • All natural fruit flavors
  • It is clear, having no added coloring or neon hype

Our Thoughts: This sport drink was great, esp. before an intense Cardio workout like Insanity. The flavor was really tasty, better than Propel or Gatorade, because it does not give that syrupy sugar after taste like they do. After a 9 hour work day, the electrolytes helped to power us through our workout.

CheeCha Puffs Review:

 Thanks to Tracey Cadrin at Cheecha puffs, who was so sweet to send us the BIGGEST review package we have ever received. There were 12 bags of these healthy Puffs. As soon as we opened the box, Karstee and Ashley were so excited to try these, that they were practically tearing open the bag before we stopped them. I was like “No, no I need a picture first!” lol Anyways we tried the Sea Salt Pepper, and Original one’s first. They are a perfect little snack, and you can have 2 cups for 74 cals. With all natural ingredients, these would be perfect to pair with a sandwich, or just for that Chip lover.

Whooha gear T-shirts Review

When we went to workout, we wore our Whooha gear T-shirts. These shirts worked well, with there Dri-Balance material. Our our sweat was getting sucked right in, and my whole t-shirt did not look like I took a shower in it. We have gotten so many compliments on these shirts, even our older sis Ashley was so jealous! Maybe we will have to buy her one since her B-day is coming up. She deserves it, she made it through p90X! All in all we really like this brand, and their inspirational sayings on all merchandise. For more information, or to purchase you own visit www.whoohagear.com

Dinner tonight involved some Progresso soup, and half of a Garlic Flatbread from Fabulous Flats. There are so much to do with all these awesome Products!

 

 

 Soup is so cozy on a cold day. And, when you just got done with a 9 hour work day on your feet, then an hour of Max Interval Plyo. Yikes!

 What a tiring day, and it ended with some Millet bread. This stuff is so addicting, especially when there is so much you can do with it. Tonight we made a strawberry white chocolate shortcake on top.

  • 1 slice of Millet Bread
  • 1/2 tbs of strawberry preserves
  • two spoonfuls of Honey Greek yogurt
  • Strawberries
  • White Chocolate Chips

*** Tip: Make desserts healthier by using greek yogurt for icing, or whipped cream
