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

Spring break here we come!

27 Mar

Friday 3/26

This morning Whit and I hopped right out of bed with out even complaining(very hard to do sometimes). We were determined to get through this last day without one negative comment. To start off our day, we decided to have a bowl of oats kind inspired by Kath Eats from yesterday.

I made Whit and I pumpkin spice latte’s, while she prepped our oats 🙂 This was definitely not what you call a skinny latte, but hey it is Friday and everybody should indulge and treat their selves something every once in a while, right! 

This morning’s bowl of pumpkin oats are as follows:

  • 1/2 cup oats, soy milk, water
  • 2 tbs. of pumpkin puree
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tbs. of chia seeds

Toppings were:

– a split pink lady apple chopped and heated
-10 butterscotch chips(the best part!)
– a heaping spoonful of greek yogurt, white choc. pb loco

Yum, look at what a great picture!

 

On the way to school, we listened to a real song to put us in a real upper mood. And that was no one other than Miley Cyrus. We rocked out to her song Party in the USA. That song is awesome! Every car that passed us was probably thinking what are those girls doing. lol, oh well we were having a hay day!

Well school ended up flying by. It is weird, but somehow not thinking about all of the negative things actually made time fly. You should try it sometime. For lunch we ended up finally eating our morningstar chicken nuggets that have been in the freezer forever, with some Annies macaroni and Pineapple. The red sauce pictured is some really yummy buffalo sauce, that is great for dipping those nuggets.

 Look what came for mail delivery today, first up Whooha Gear workout shirts! They are super cute, and we each got to pick out personally which one’s we wanted. Review to come.

 

 Whit’s:

 And Mine:

 I just love them, they are very inspirational!

Next up, Fabulous Flats. Nicole Spinner sent us Flatbread, sandwich thins, and Pizza crust, omg can you say carb heaven?

To make use of these on a Friday night, we wanted  to first try out the pizza crusts.

 We made an Alfredo Pizza:

  • Multi-grain Pizza Crust
  • Newman’s Own Alfredo Sauce
  • Parmesan
  • Spinach
  • Next Generation Organic mozzarella
  • Shredded lean Chicken Breast
  • Minced Garlic
  • EVOO (for crust)
  • Garlic Powder (For Crust)

* Cook at 400 degrees for 20 min.

This pizza was by far one of the best pizza’s, our whole entire family has every tried. The dough was so soft, light, and fluffy. Just the way it should be. We loved the texture, and this was the perfect combo with the Next Generation cheese. Our older sister’s were raving about how good these pizza’s were, and want us to make some more soon.

Next up was the Buffalo Wing Pizza:

  • 1 Pizza Crust
  • Light Bleu Cheese Dressing (light layer)
  • A drizzle of ranch
  • 1/4 cup of chopped white onions
  • Shredded chicken Soaked in Chick-fil-a Buffalo Sauce
  • 2 Next Generation Organic mozzarella Shredded on top

*400 degrees, for 20 min.

 Verdict: Both pizza’s were a hit, and our older sister Ashley and dad liked this one the most, because it was more spicy.

 Whit and I had a slice of each paired with a veggie Salad.

 Then, today we finally picked up Millet Bread. We’ve been wanting to try this stuff 4 Eva, ever since seeing it on the fitnessista, and Live Laugh Eat’s Blog. Allie was right though, it really does have a pound cake texture.

 We used our first slice ever, to make a carrot cake.

 Topped with:

  • Cinnamon
  • Raisins
  • Walnuts
  • Coconut
  • Pineapple
  • Shredded Carrots
  • Honey Greek yogurt mixed with Coconut butter (icing)

 

Fun Fact Friday: Whitney and I are mirrored twins. I write with my left, and she writes with her right. Our whole life, something on our body that is really similar is mirrored. It is really weird!

Time for bed, work is bright and early tomorrow, yikes!

Goodnight,

XOXO Court & Whit♥
