Level Up Your Body!

27 Oct

Accountability: Actions toward or involving others that reflect the integrity of the person you want to be. If there is anything I have learned on my fitness journey thus far, it is this. Everyone has goals, but not everyone achieves those goals. I believe if enough stress and focus is put on those goals they will always be met. So starting today I challenge every one of you to introduce accountability into your lives. Make a to do list RIGHT NOW and getter done!

With that said…let’s take a tour of SlimKicker!

>SlimKicker is a FREE website to sustain motivation with your diet/weight loss goals(:

“But diet, and fitness are half of the battle. Most people regain weight because they never learn long-term habits. We solve this by taking habits as quitting soda, and turning them into 7-30 day challenges. Like a regular game, the challenges start out easy, and gradually become harder, with more points. We encourage you to check-in daily with others doing the same challenge for accountability and social support.”

What they offer:

And RECIPES!

WORTH checking out…not only are you tracking your calories, but you are overcoming challenges as well!

Have fun and please share a goal below!!

It’s been a Hell of a week!

25 Jul

Man guys, we have had quite the week. There was a crazy hobo man who tried to jump into our car, the Aurora Shooting, Fitness On the Rocks, and a ridiculous car accident. Wheww!!! Too much for one week.

So first up…let us tell you about that crazy hobo who tried to crawl into our car. Whit and I arrived to our fitness in the city workout about 20 minutes early, and decided to roll down the windows and listen to music for a lil’ bit. All was good for about two minutes when I noticed a cracked out man carrying a bunch of CD’s slowly approaching our car. With that said, I did not hesitate to tell Whit to roll up the windows…BUT did she listen to me??? Nahhh. It did not take long before this guys head was all the way in the passenger seat window and about 2 inches away from my face. Instantly my heart started pounding. After attempting to sell us his CD’s and making very vulgar comments Whit finally stepped in and said something along the lines of, “Get your head out of my car before I roll it up in the window”! Carrying a purse, he still tried to get money from us, but luckily we were just across the street from class and were able to get ourselves out of that scary situation before feeling completely defenseless.

As if Colorado has not suffered enough this Summer with the whole state practically being on fire, there is also the horrible Century 16 shooting that occurred the other night in our hometown, Aurora. That night is absolutely insane how things turned out for us. So we had worked a long 10 hour day on Thursday, and Whit had to rush from work to an interview, that she totally rocked. From there, we headed to a free personal training session that we had at Orange Theory Fitness (More details about this awesome place to come in another post). When we got out of our workout, which was around 8:30, we contemplated whether or not to go see the Dark Night Rises for the opening night showing. Keep in mind, we open every Friday morning, meaning we have to be at work at 4 AM!  So Court said “This would be an unforgettable night Whit, we can always remember when we are older that we stayed out all night, saw the opening night of an incredible movie, and then went straight to work with no sleep!” Going through my head was I don’t know about that, I have stayed up all night with no sleep and worked a 16 hour day….NOT FUN AT ALL. So I said to Court well it could be fun, we can call around and see what theater is not sold out yet and go. Well we get home, start feeling our soreness and exhaustion, then both decided we should be responsible adults and just go to bed and get our sleep for work. Turns out, the only theater not sold out of tickets was Century 16, and we could have gone and been a part of that horrible tragedy. Century 16 is a theater very close to our house, and Court and I have been there quite a few times this past year. It is very scary to think we could have been there, or even been one of the twelve who did not make it. In the end,  we are very very blessed, and thank god every day that us and our family are safe. At the same time, have the biggest heart aches for all the victims and their families, they have and will continue to be in our prayers.

Fitness on the Rocks at Red Rocks was Phenomenal! We signed up for Turbo Kick with Jennifer Driscoll, and Ultimate Boot camp. It was a hot one on Saturday, about a little over a 100 degrees, but Court and I still looked cute. We were rocking some blinging Pink Sparkly head bands and our Fitness on the Rocks Tanks. We woke up early, packed gallons of water, bars, and apples, and then headed up there. It is a really awesome free event, and there were many companies with tents set up, where we received all kinds of goodies. Both workouts were so much fun, and we even ran into a bunch of our fitness buddies there.

The ride home is where the car accident occurred. Since it costed about $9 to take the freeway to Red Rocks then we decided the last minute to take all the back roads home. BAADDDDD IDEA!! Our directions ended up taking us through the worlds worst most ghetto neighborhood. We were driving on through this neighborhood for about 15 minutes when we approached a four-way stop. It was our turn to go. When we start rolling on through…. all of a sudden this Subaru flies through and smashes into us. 😦 SOOO we all pull over and get out of the car. This man was Asian and did not speak a word of english….Talk about bad luck! We had no idea how to communicate to him that this is your fault sir and end up  calling the cops. A whole 45 mins later they finally showed up! The officer wanted to hear what happened. We both tell him our side of the story, but when the office goes to talk to the Asian man he could not understand a word either. With no witnesses and even though it was his fault, the officer gave both parties no ticket and labeled it as a “No Fault” accident. OHHHH we are pissed about that. So now we have to see what our insurance will cover, or just fix the car ourselves.

Here were some thoughts running through our heads in facebook form on the day of the accident:

BAHHHHH….like we said it has been a HELL of a WEEK!

Cheers!…To hopefully a better week ahead.

XOXO- Court and Whit ❤

When one hard week ends, another fun one begins…

4 Oct

Hey All!

It was a LOONGG week last week… but we made it lol. Now this week is Homecoming week, and even better Whit and I only have two days of regular school! Today has been quite a productive day off to say the least.

  • We woke up late
  •  Ate yet another amazing oat creation
  •  Went and got an oil change(which was not as scary as last time!)
  • tried to buy more 5 hour energy but couldn’t(apparently you cannot buy an energy drink from Wal-Mart unless you are 18…. really high school is filled with more work load than ever these days, and some students need ENERGY!) 
  • Worked out with Bob Harpers new strength work out dvd(it was on sale at Wal-Mart and totally worth it! Lets just say it was so intense that my muscles are still having spasms)
  • Wrote my museum analysis for Art
  • Made breakfast for tomorrow
  • Now I am blogging and waiting for 90210 

 

 

Thursday began with a big ol’ bowl of berry patch oats laced with macadamia butter!

Friday Whit and I brought back our old tradition and had a bagel for breakfast! Let me introduce you to my new bagel mecca: Pumpkin Crunch Bagel

Broiled it in the oven for 2 min. then shmeared one side with strawberry cream cheese and the other with maple almond butter/pumpkin butter. All I can say after eating this bagel is Tis’ The Season to be pumpkin 😛

Lunch packed for work was a turkey-veggie salad with a Pecan Pie Larabar(Literally tastes like pie 🙂 )

 

Friday night Whit, Karst, and I all went down town to First Friday. Artist from all over show off their art on this street down town. There were so many people there. Who knew so many people were into art. We went to get E.C. for our Art class, but it was actually a lot more fun than I expected. It was free and it was fun just to get out.  

 

Saturday started with some Berry Patch Oats with the addition of figs and then off to an extremely busy day of work. Whit and I kept saying, “Man we are underpaid sandwich makers!” lol While at work I also decided to post some Operation Beautiful notes in the girls bathroom. It made me feel so good. I even saw a few women come out smiling. Have you guys made or seen any Operation Beautiful notes?

And for Saturday… you guessed it a fruit salad. Whit and I went to Wendy’s on Friday for lunch and had their Apple Pecan Salad. It was literally the best restaurant salad I have ever had so why not recreate it!

Dinner was ricotta stuffed turkey burgers, sweet potato fries, and a giant pickle.

 

And then finally… Sunday arrived and it was Race Day! Whit and Ash got a little decked out before hand.

Every year we have rode the light rail but this year it was $7 and they only accepted cash, which we did not even find out until we got to the front of the line! Are you kidding me… you already are paying money to race. It should be free. So with that said we vetoed the light rail and drove. Parking was only $2 which ended up saving us a ton of money. 

It is moments like these…

 

that I truly cherish 🙂

Until next year….

 

These were the decadent White Chocolate Macadamia Oats from this morning!

  • oats, almond milk, water
  • chia & flax-seed
  • maple & vanilla extract
  • Turbinado sugar
  • white chocolate chips
  • granola & millet puffs
  • pear
  • macadamia butter

 

We used up some left over burgers today and crumbled them in a giant salad.

We use Eating Right Garlic Parmesan Caesar dressing.

 

And a peach(white peach to be exact) satisfied the sweet tooth!

 

Well guys it is going to be a fun and busy week. I will fill you in with all of the homecoming details later in the week 😉
