Week 4 begins now…

26 Apr

¬†Happy Happy Monday ūüôā

        Hello Lovely people, how is your mountain of a monday going? I hope good! Ours has been pretty rad so far.

Check out what we made last night, it was Goji-Licious!

 In the mix:

  • 1/2 container of Chobani plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 container of Hunt’s butterscotch pudding
  • 1 tablespoon of apple granola
  • 1 tablespoon of Kashi heart to heart
  • 2 mini Goji chocolate chip cookies
  • 1 mini Goji Orange mint chip cookie

Viola, a delish satisfying Yogurt mess ūüėČ

 Since it is Monday, we had a 5 AM wake-up call this morning. Breakfast was a simple hardy dish.

  • 13 PB puffins (to be specific. lol)
  • 1/2 cup of Kashi heart to heart warm Cinnamon
  • 1/2 sliced banana
  • Cinnamon
  • 1 tbs of silvered almonds
  • 1/2 cup almond milk

And to go with was 2 slices (50 cals each) of Sprouts Apple Cinnamon Raisin Bread.

 

 We decided we would hit up the gym after second period today, so Whit and I split this Boomi Bar beauty!

 **Verdict: Taste like cashew butter in bar form, which is awesome and very impressive

While at the gym, we completed:

  • 20 min of the eliptical at Incline of 3

  • 10 minutes of the bike at¬†Incline of 3¬†

 

  • Bikini Body Shape-Up Circuit out of this months Fitness Magazine

¬†~Wow, we we’re SWEATY! This whole workout today was good and challenging. Loved it!

When we got home, we stretched it out then tried a few sips out of this Sport OWATER.

¬†**Verdict: I love the all of the Sport OWATER flavors, I¬†think they just simply taste better sweetened. Their unsweetened flavors don’t even compare to these ones, Tasty ūüôā

 Then, it was time to make some Lunch cause that workout left our tummies rumbling! Last week, we got a nice package from Fiber Gourmet filled with a ton of their neat products.

This company is awesome, and sells healthier Pasta, Desserts, and crackers.

 And check out all the nutrition info all over the box. Needless to say, it is Chuck full of fiber and less calories than Traditional Mac&Cheese.

Explanation-As the Fiber goes up, the calories go down

 Also mixed into our Mac was:

  • Tofu
  • Spinach
  • chickpeas
  • Pepper

 And our classic go to side dish of splitting a Pink Lady Apple topped w/ Pumpkin, PB, and Cinnamon, oh my!

And now we’re going to prep lunch for tomorrow, then take a lovely Monday afternoon nap. Nothing beats an afternoon nap. ūüėČ

Saving Money :) 3/18

19 Mar

Thursday

Today has been kind of a lounge around relaxing day. Whit and woke up at¬†about 8 this morning. Then we watched the today¬†show while we enjoyed our¬†bowl of overnight oats and almond steamers.¬†Pictured below is our blueberry/greek yogurt overnight bowl of¬†oats. We added some fresh berries, wheat berries, and silvered almonds for extra fiber. If you have not tried wheat berries yet then I would definitly give them a try. They have are soft, and have kind of a nutty taste. I love em’.¬†We also just ordered some Chia seeds which should be coming real soon, I cannot wait to add those to my oatmeal. There was a whole segment on the health benefits of Chia seeds¬†on the¬†Today Show¬†today, if you want more info.

After breakfast, and letting our tummy’s digest, Whit wanted to get our Insanity video done right away. So we ran upstairs literally threw on some workout clothes and began the video. For some reason today I sweated bullets. That video kicked my butt. Today was Day 4 of Recovery Week. I am really excited¬†scared for the beginning of month twos workout’s next week. YIKES!

 

 

For lunch we were both craving breakfast foods. So we decided a tofu/egg white scrammble and toast sounded superb.

 

We both decided the apple cinnamon bread from yesterdays breakfast was a definite repeater for today. We topped ours with raspberry preserve, and almondbutter/gingerbread butter on the other half. And of course our fave, pink lady apples were on the side. This was a complete nutritious breakfast lunch!

 

 

For a snack today, Whit and I decided to homemake Lara Bars!

 

We put these ingredients into the food proccesor for about 5 min.

  • 4 dates
  • 1/4 cup of raw almonds
  • a handful of the dried¬†apple funky monkey mix
  • cinnamon

Once you have a sticky consistency, we added a drizzle of agave and formed the bars. This was our own version of the Apple Pie LaraBar. It also kind of reminded me of the Apple Cinnamon Pure Bars we tried a while back. These no joke tasted like the real thing. Whit and I are going to make some more tommorow to have for our snacks at school this next coming week. Each one of these bars usually cost about  $1 so look how much money we are going to save!

 

Look at the resemblence! Next time I think I will add walnuts to mine just like this one ūüôā

 

 

For din din tonight we had leftover Shepards Pie in a wrap!
