Attack of the Manna Bears!!!….

24 Jun

 Howdy friends. This is the term we would be using if we were going to country Jam with all the rest of our siblings. But no, we gotta Work! They all left this morning for Grand Junction, and will be camping up there all weekend. No fair, we wanna camp.  But we got work, blah.

Today’s shift was from 9-4, so we stuck to our plans for an early morning sweat sessh at the Gym. And when your waking up to just straight working out, no b-fast, than a Nuun tablet  and half a Bora Bora will give you phenomenal energy like it did for us.

 Nuun Lemon Lime Verdict- We liked this flavor waaaay more than the Berry one, this one was more like the flavor for powerade or Gatorade. Much more refreshing to taste. And just like the berry, it gave a ton of energy to push through an early rough workout.

 While at our gym, Fitness 19, we did HIIT circuits on the elliptical and treadmill totaling out to be 30 min of cardio, then did about 20 minutes of weights/back strengthening.

 We were the winner of Alisha’s giveaway for Manna bears which are all natural gummy kid vitamins. And they are truly the best~Thanks girly! After showering up, and putting on some make up, we both let our hairs dry while eating breakfast and blog reading. The meal started with our first serving of Manna Bears. We ♥ Kiddie vitamins! hehe…

 

 This morning’s combo was Chocolate covered strawberry protein overnight oats, and a white-chocolate iced coffee. (Note homemade iced coffee is amazing, and now we I truly can see why Tina a.k.a. Carrots N’ Cake raves about it).

 In the mix:

-overnight-

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup kefir
  • 1 tbs Jay Robb Strawberry Whey protein powder
  • 1/2 tbs Carnation instant Chocolate Breakfast Essentials
  • 3 sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 tbs carob chips
  • sprinkle of flax/chia seeds

-In the morning add-

  • 3 big spoonfuls vanilla yogurt
  • 5 chopped almonds
  • handful of goji berries

White chocolate iced coffee

  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbs white chocolate liquid creamer
  • 1 pkt stevia in the raw

  • Cold/Room temp brewed coffee

 Dinner tonight has consisted of a a kid syle meal~~ Grilled ham&Cheese, celrey sticks w/ hummus, and a pickle. Beat that dinner. MMM.

One more day of work tomorrow, then we FINALLY have a day off. I am so psyched. Tomorrow is Friday What are your plans?

It is a Gorgeous day out <3

4 May

The sun is a shinin’ out, and today is in the upper 70’s. Aye yeah summer is so close, you can feel it! lol.  Anywho, the alarm went off at 5 AM, then we got up and made a yummalicious oat creation. Instead of using our typical almond milk in them, we used SO Delicious Unsweetened Coconut milk. The company sent us a generous amount of VIP coupons, so this bad boy was calling our name to try next.

 

  • Dairy Free / Lactose Free
  • Soy Free
  • Gluten Free
  • Rich in Medium Chain Fatty Acids
  • Excellent Source of Vitamin B12 (vegetarian friendly)
  • Formulated for Maximum Calcium Absorption
  • Cholesterol Free
  • No Trans Fats
  • Certified Vegan

 

** Verdict: So far, this brand coconut milk is fantastic! I love the creaminess it adds to oats, and the nutritional stats are phenomenal. We have had other coconut milk in the past, but this one is the BEST! And we plan to make some of our German chocolate oats, or an almond joy breakfast cookie with it, yummy stuff.

 PB, Banana, Honey oats:

In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp golden flax seeds
  • 1/2 ripe mashed banana
  • lots of cinnamon

Toppings:

 mmm, honey in oats is divine 😉

 Today was a short day, so when we got out at 10:45, and hit up the gym. For a Pre-workout snack, we dug to the bottom of our “bar bag,” and had some Apple Soy Joy bars.

While at the gym we completed a treadmill circuit, and some Ab action.

 We were SWEATY! After our sweat sessh, we hit up Target to look if they were having any good deals, then we drove home and had this fabulous lunch on the back deck. Using up some more of our Western Alternative Bagels, we had a bagel egg white sandwich and a pink lady smeared with cashew butter and cinnamon.

Well, time to go get some housework done, squeeze in a nap, and then a little HW. Tonight homemade nachos are sounding pretty good for dinner, using up some leftover wheat tortillas with Turkey Chile on top. YUM! Who knows? Plans and cravings always change. lol Oh and the Hill’s comes on tonight, yayayay.
