When life gets tough… Make a HYBRID Schedule!

16 Aug

¬†Hello Stranger. Yeah, we’re talking to you!

So it has been a few days, what can I say, Slackers? Procrastination? Work? Cleaning? Umm, yes, all of those have got a lil’ something to do with it. lol. The whole cleaning thing is really a big part of all this exhaustion. ūüė¶ School is in exactly 1 Week and so all the last-minute¬†stuff has got to be fit in, ya know?… Our day off Saturday¬†turned into renovating¬†our bedrooms and closets. I’m talking in there from the time we woke up till dinner. Court and I literally stayed in our PJ’s all day, and ended up with TWO HUGE garbage bags each of crap to get rid of. The whole process was a good cleanse to our not only our bedrooms, but ourselves. It feels good to clean out and organize. I can honestly say our bedrooms/closets have not looked this good all Summer. Most of the time there were papers, magazines, and clothes all over the floor. EEE! No more of that, lol CANNOT mess up the beautiful finished product. ūüôā

Greek Gods yogurt is so CREAMY! It is equally tied on the creamy level with FAGE.

Make a HYBRID schedule! Hybrid exercises combine multiple movement patterns into one congruent action. Recently one of Ashley‚Äôs Facebook friends posted a picture of her Hybrid schedule. This woman owns almost all of the Beachbody workouts. With that said, she some how managed to create a Hybrid Workout Schedule with Insanity, P90X, Brazilian Butt Lift, Turbo Fire, Chalean Extreme, and Hip Hop Abs. WOW! I was definitely impressed‚Ķ talk about MUSCLE CONFUSION ūüėČ If you still have no idea what exactly a Hybrid Schedule looks like, then check out this one that combines Turbo Fire, Insanity, and P90x:

Pretty cool, huh!?! After reading this awesome workout schedule she had come up with then Whit, Ash, and I decided to come up with one on our own too! We made a hybrid schedule for the next two months. Each day is basically a different programs DVD. We will share our schedule with you once we have our FINAL COPY. Making your own Hybrid Schedule is so convenient. This is what a week should look like for us:

Mon. & Fri. – Strength Training and Abs

Tues. & Thurs. – Cardio

Wed. – HIIT

Sat. – REST

Sun. ‚Äď Yoga

This schedule is what ultimately worked best for our school and work days coming up. Scheduling your workouts is a MUST! If you want to see results then you have to make working out a priority ūüėČ So come on what are you waiting for? GO MAKE A WORKOUT SCHEDULE.

Night guys!

-Court & Whit

Woah, we moved literally non-stop today, whew

14 Jun

Oh my goodness, does it feel good to sit down and relax right now. Work, grocery shopping, and chores drained us! Eeeek. lol Court is laying on the floor next to me saying “Man WORK WARES YOU OUT! Don’t you think?” haha yes it does. After we closed the store today, we stopped by Natural Grocers and Wal-mart for some goodies, and then went and got some Gas for our car at Sams Club with our dad’s discount card. Proceeding that was a humungo list of chores including putting away the mountain pile of clothes our mom washed for us today. While cleaning up my room, I put on a nice playlist from Grooveshack.com the songs included:

  • Miranda Lambert- The house that built me
  • Damien Rice- 9 crimes
  • Reeve Carney- Think of you
  • Miley Cyrus-When I look at you
  • Alison Krause- When you say nothing at all
  • Lights- Drive my soul
  • Amanda Seyfried- Little House
  • Ashley Tisdale-¬†Unlove you
  • Hilary Duff- Cry
  • Lenka- The show
  • Plain White T’s- Hey there Delilah

It was a nice soothing playlist, that helped me to unwind. Our mom scheduled our senior pics today for June 30th, so now we got to decide what we are going to wear, and how to do our hair. So many choices! Yikes ūüôā

Breakfast consisted of Tropical Muffin oats:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 water
  • cinnamon
  • chiaseeds
  • flaxseeds

Toppings

  • 1/2 peach mango muffin from our work
  • raspberries/blueberries
  • Peanut Butter

And alongside some Yogi Vanilla hazelnut tea.

Here’s where I get all pretty in the morning at my little vanity. And would you look at that I’m all ready for work, even had the hair, visor, and jacket all ready to go.

We did not estimate how much traffic that “week work” would have, so we left at our normal time, and were bombarded with so many cars and red lights. We ended up being 5 min late to work, but bossman understood. He was all “I kinda figured you guys wouldn’t be used to all the traffic and be a little late.” lol

Lunch:

  • Brown rice veggie salad
  • Grapes
  • Special K Chocolate Pretzel bar(So addicting)

A delish sample arrived in the mail today. Some Chocolites¬†from Health Smart Foods. This company provided healthy snack foods that are super low in calories and in fat. We first discovered them Via Hungry Girl’s website. Our package came with a box of protein bars, and Chocolates. If you have ever been one to do weight watcher’s or the Atkins diet, then you have probably heard of them.

These boxed are chock¬†filled with the tastiest flavors. I mean come on chocolite¬†PB cup, chocolite¬†pecan cluster, chocolite¬†crispy caramel, chocolite¬†cookie n’ cream, cashew caramel, smores, chocolate turtle, and many many more. MMM! My mouth is watering just reading off the flavors.

Up first to try tonight for a little dessert after dinner was the Chocolite Pecan Cluster chocolates. Each one is 30 cals, and it comes in a pack of 2, so that is a guiltless and quite delicious 60 calories dessert.

**Verdict: This is truly lusious chocolate, that I could mistake for Russel Stovers or any calorie rich Pecan delight chocolate any day. It was melt in the mouth good, and the carmel just oozed out.

Some protein pancakes are in order for the morning. I hope you all have sweet dreams.

P.S Giveaway ends tonight

XOXO Court & Whit ‚ô•
