Friday has finally arrived

16 Apr

What a week ladies and possibly gents!

HW was out of hand, only one nap was taken, and senioritis is already kicking in a year early.  This final quarter is it, then we are free for three months! I swear teachers just love to pile on every last-minute assignment that they can, so a million projects and assignments were thrown at us this week. Last night after I finished my hand felt numb from writing so much. Apparently they don’t know kids want to get away from school when we come home. Well, it is official, we can say week two of school is crossed off, let the countdown continue. 🙂 Our go to breakfast this morning, was a Cinnamon Roll Breakfast cookie.

In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup of oats
  •  1 tsp of Vanilla Whey protein
  • 1 tsp of chia
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tbs of creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 mashed banana
  • 2 chopped walnuts
  • 1 chopped pitted date
  • 2 tbs of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 pkt of stevia

*refrigerate overnight*

 

Then, in the morning you top with the icing! 

 -Icing-

  • A few spoonfuls of Cinnamon roll yogurt
  • 1 tsp of reduced fat cream cheese
  • Drizzle of agave

**Heat in microwave for 30 sec, then whisk**

 Then even more cinnamon♥

 And to go with this lovely we made a cinnamon dolce latte:

  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 1/4 cup of hot water
  • 1/2 cup of hazelnut coffee
  • 1 pkt of stevia
  • 1 tbs of fat-free Cinnamon vanilla creamer
  • 1/2 tbs of cappuccino mix

~Fun Fact Friday~

Has anyone ever watched the movie Max Keeble’s Big move? Well if you have, do you recall Robe boy? His robe wearing obsession is just like Courtney and I lol.

 Every morning we wear our robes, and even if the house is freezing, we will wear them all day. No one else in our family does this but us, and they all joke about it. lol We wear our robes in the morning, when its cold, and right out of the shower until we go to bed.

Mine is this Green one

 And Court’s is this Red one

 Along with our Robes, we are the Slipper Queens. Comfy is the key when you’re at home. So we both have a pair of cute little slipper boots!

For lunch today, we met up with our Mom and Chick-fil-a for a Chargrilled and Cookie Parfait, and now the rest of the day is all ours. What to do what to do 😉

I’m really thinking about experimenting with bar making this weekend, because Court and I have got some good recipes up our sleeves. There could possibly be a good giveaway next week, so be on the lookout. But speaking of giveaways, you still have till Sunday evening to enter our Chobani Giveaway.

HAPPY FRIDAY!

XOXO Whit & Court♥

School is no bueno

13 Apr

 Hey!!!

    This morning was not that bad to get up at all, so I’m thinking that nap really helped yesterday. 

Do you remember the wrap we made the other day with PB, Banana and dates? Well that was the inspiration for this morning’s oats.

In the mix:

Serves 1

  • 1/3 cup of oats, 1/3 almond breeze, 1/3 water
  • 1 Banana (Half mashed and cooked in, half sliced on top
  • ½ tbs of chia seeds
  • Cinnamon
  • 2 chopped dates

Toppings:

  • 4 chocolate animal crackers
  • Other half of banana
  • ½ tbs of Dark Chocolate PB
  • ½ tbs od skippy all natural crunchy PB

 

And to drink was another Bolt house Iced Chai Tea. Seriously, cannot get enough of this stuff. These oats were so yummy, so they deserve to go in the recipe section that is in the works.

Today is a long day of school, then afterschool we have to do our Cardio Conditioning, and Cardio Abs video. I do not know how, but the longest videos always fall on the busy school day. SO not cool!  Oh well, hopefully we just don’t get a lot of HW. Last night, we talked to Ashley about the Boulder Boulder race, and I think we are all going to do it. It cost $44, and I think it would be really fun. Now we just have to start running. lol I think I can do 4 miles, but hopefully Insanity bumped up my stamina for more. If we do decide to do the race, then my plan is that we will all run in the morning together, then do weight lifting afterschool. But, we will see how it works out. Right now I’m in my office Assistant class, so this is what I chose to do. lol Only two more classes left. Can’t wait, school is TOO long!
