It’s been quite the year!

16 Jul

First….how about we FF>>> through a year of pics to get ya’ll somewhat up to date where we are at in life.

Whit had quite the job dilemma. There was Einsteins, Lifetime Fitness, Einsteins, Lifetime, both… IT WAS AN EXHAUSTING MESS

And then finally Einsteins. We were split up for quite a few months, then reunited once more at a completely different store than we have worked at the past two years. This store has taken some getting used to considering it was ALL BOYS! We spiced the place up a bit though, and can now say we are like one of the dudes.  We are the ultimate manager duo. Watch out!

Well Court and Michael finally split after a pretty long 10 month relationship. Things were getting rocky, and Court found that she was losing herself.

Meanwhile, Whit found love this past year. Meet Clint. 🙂

There was a lot of boy drama and craziness this year. After a few months from splitting from Michael, court started to live her own little fairytale. A certain cutie named Isaac who was beyond romantic asked her out in the cutest way! He cored an apple and put it on our windshield. It’s a long cute story, but lets just say the way they met had to deal with apples. Hehehe.

Don’t know about you guys, but we are kind of Instagram Addicts. It is the coolest pic app by far!

With the whole mess of our employment this year, we attempted to get out of  Einstein’s and find office jobs. There were millions of interviews, and a lot of disappointment to say the least.

Our hairstylist is the coolest gay guy on the planet! And his coloring is the best I’ve seen.  We experimented with our hair like crazy thanks to him. It is fun to change up your color, or play up highlights.

Along with Experimentation, Whit Pierced her lip.  So she now has her ears, cartilidge, nose, and lip. She’s a little cray cray.

We turned 19 this year, and it was a RAGE. Seriously, the most fun and insane bday we have ever had.

Car troubles were beyond annoying. First up, someone backed into our lexus while we were at work, then drove off! A** Holes. So that was a pretty $800 repair. Then, Whit blew out our tire on the Honda on the interstate, and well…that led to having Pink Wheels for that car. Haha, funny how things work out.

We kicked some serious booty with school this past year. I’m talking 13-15 Credits a semester, on top of working full time. Working out was very limited at the time, and we felt like we were gaining a freshman 15…I blame ANATOMY. That class was twice a week, for 4 hrs. Court passed with a C, and Whit was lucky to pass with ONE POINT!

ANATOMY took up pretty much all our studying. We were learning chapter after chapter, meanwhile staying hours in the lab.

During Finals week, we were beyond excited to be ALMOST DONE with the school year from HELL.

Yeah Check out them HAWT Wheels. We’re pretty cool…I mean who else has Pink Wheels. ummm NO ONE!!

With all our good guy friends, we decided to learn how to fix up our own cars. Here whit is replacing our brakes when they went out.

College Parties were pretty awesome this year. Just Saying. Here from Left to right is Nikki, Court, Dave, Whit, and Isaac.

After feeling like we were completely out of shape from such a rough school year, we decided to join a fitness group. Say hello to our new addiction called “Fitness in the City.” We work out with these rockstars twice a week, bootcamp style, and it kicks your butt!

On top of that we have been turbo kickin it up with JD and Chalene. Have you met them? WE HAVE.

How it is even possible to get grounded at 19 is beyond me, but yeah it happened. Here was our lil nephew Ty’s reaction when we told him “your aunties are grounded!” He might have been in more shock then us. LOL

You guys all met Dave a few post back, well it is very sad, but he moved away last week. He now lives in Portland. He was Whit’s gay husband, and it is pretty sad. He was the best of the best girlfriends you could have.

Little Ty Ty is such a big boy now! He is about a year and a half! He’s walking, running, talking.

Any say hello to nephew number two.  Meet Eric. 🙂

I must say we have the two cutest little nephews in the world!

This Summer we have been taking advantage of all the fitness BEAUTIFUL Colorado offers. We have been hiking, biking, rafting.

 And Fitness on the Rocks at Red Rocks.

Hello Gorgeous Readers,

We figured it has been way way way too long, and we are completely past due for a blog post, so we are here to say we kinda sorta missed you guys. This past year off from blogging was insane, and when I say insane, I mean we both pretty much lost our shit, but that whole school year of hell, and those hours of work we put in are truly paying off in the moment. As you can see from the pictures above we had quite the year! HAHA Ok, so you might be wondering, why would we even come back to blogging after taking off for so long. In all honesty, we both talked and missed it like CRAZY! It’s fun to share all of our thoughts and lifestyles with people all around the world who can relate. With starting to blog again, you will find all of our post will not be mainly focused on food as what it was before. Instead our new direction will show the 19 year old Court and Whit who lead an all around healthy balanced young life. We are quickly approaching our twenties, and just about finishing up our associates degrees. We want to show you what it is like to live in the beautiful Denver, CO. We will talk about trendy places we like to hangout, the fitness groups we have joined, the boys we are dating, the college life, deals and steals since we are pretty amazing shoppers, and the continued journey to becoming Personal Trainers. Stay Tuned!!

XOXO Court& Whit

PMS is a….

7 Jan

Well ladies I’ll let you finish that sentence. It is that time of the month for me this week and I have been experiencing unbearable cramps. I even missed school today because of it. Endometriosis is probably the reason for all of my pain. So far 3 out of the five women in our family have been told by a doctor that they have it. In case you have no idea what I am talking about here is a little bit more info. about it from google: 

Endometriosis

Google Health   Mayo Clinic   Medline Plus   WebMD 
Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that behaves like
the cells lining the uterus (endometrium) grows in other areas of the
body, causing pain, irregular bleeding, and possible infertility …
http://www.google.com/health

One of the horrible symptoms this carries is painful/heavy periods. Here is a link with more information: https://health.google.com/health/ref/Endometriosis

QOD: Do you experience painful cramps? If so, what do you do?

 

With that said, here’s a guide to soothe your cramps:

First off, having some kind of medication always helps.

“Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, are the most effective medications for treating painful menstrual cramps”.

Tip: Most medicine for menstrual cramps: Midol, Aleve, Advil, Motrin, Naproxen are only available over the counter. If your cramps are really bad, then consider seeing a doctor to get a prescription 🙂

  

                    

 

 Invest in some sort of heat!
 “Since warmth helps to relax tight muscles, many women find that applying heat to the lower abdomen can relieve cramps.” I like the heating pad the best. You will not regret buying one, this thing is my best friend when I am on my period. The heat really does help soothe your cramps.

Exercise!
It will speed up your blood circulation, release endorphins(which are a natural pain-killer), and slow down the pain. I find that light cardio and yoga always helps. Yoga especially, because it feels good to stretch out your abdomen.

 

 

  

 

 

  Eat well/ Hydrate!
Drinking hot herbal tea will also help increase blood flow to your abdomen area. I have been drinking 1-2 cups everyday this week. It is just a natural home remedy that temporarily relieves the pain. Bananas are also a good thing to have. The potassium in them helps shut off the release of lactic acid from your cramps.

Here’s where I found some great information: http://www.getridofthings.com/get-rid-of-menstrual-cramps.htm

   

↑I hope these tips help! 😉

What is your take on Vitamins?

5 Jan

 So for about the past three weeks, Courtney and I have been vitamin/supplement free, just to see the effect it would have on our body. We were trying to let our body’s take in nutrients on their own naturally by just simply eating healthy food and exercising.

The Result: Excessive tiredness, mood swings, grogginess, irregular down there, and breakouts to the skin. So basically, we are FOR SURE firm believers in taking some vitamins/supplements to aid your overall health 🙂

Currently, we take a kid gummy vitamin with a Vitamin-B 50 Complex pill right when we wake up, and a Biotin pill at lunch. The whole combo is energizing, and a better addition to the body after 3 weeks of no Vitamins. QOD: What is your take on Vitamins/Supplements?

Breakfast this morning consisted of Strawberry- Banana Overnight Oats:

-In the mix-

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp flax seeds
  • 1 6 oz container Chobani Strawberry Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1/2 sliced banana

Toppings:

  • Kashi GoLean crunch
  • Figs
  • Special K cereal
  • Skippy All Natural Honey PB
  • PB filled Pretzels

*All Served alongside some Sugar-Cookie Tea*

 Snackage: Kashi TLC Honey Almond Flax Bar + CUTIE!

 Lunch:

  • French Toast Bagel(smeared with Honey PB, and Pumpkin Cream Cheese
  • Egg Beater Scramble

 Toffee protein Pancakes from this recipe that we created in the summer.

 All meals today were pretty much breakfast oriented, but who does not love breakfast? Right?
