Happy Birthday daddy!

21 Jun

 Happy Birthday to the best Daddy around!

        Today was a throw the rule book out the window kind of day the eats were definitely not the typical. We ate what we were craving, and just kinda went with it. You know what we mean Yesno? Wei Wei so gonna use that phrase. lol So with that said breakfast consisted of some Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake with an icy cold “kid size” glass of milk. Yup, and it was fantastic!

 Onto lunch we met up with our mommy at Qdoba for her lunch break. The grilled chicken Quesidilla sounded good, so some pico de gallo was thrown inside. And there was some Guac dippage of course.

 

After lunch we drove home to our long awaiting package Turbo Fire. Yay Chalene Johnson just barely released this great program on www.beachbody.com and it is a 90 day program filled with High Intensity Interval Training. Just like Insanity. And all I will say if we can complete Insanity for all those days, then this should be easy. Right? LOL hopefully chalene is crazy, but so is Shaun T. After ripping open the package we were so excited to start Day 1. So we did! The cardio was 30 min, and then there was a stretching portion we had to do following. Day 1 Verdict- Love, love, love this program. There was a lot of kickboxing, and we were having so much fun that the time just flew by. By the end we were sweating, and it was a great change for our muscles. I am really looking forward to the rest of the program. We are waking up early to do one of the HIIT workouts for Day 2 before work, because we have a girls night planned at Pink Berry for afterwork tomorrow.  Speaking of more Summer Shape-up stuff, we are going to start weight lifting more, after finding this great site Via Lynn. 

Dad loves our Buffalo Chicken pizza, so that were the requests from the birthday boy tonight. Along some Garlic toast, and fresh fruit.

 And to finish off with his favorite, German Chocolate Cake with Blue bunny Vanilla Ice-cream.

Well, these eats either grossed you out, or made you drool. Lol. For us they were just what the doctor ordered. Pure satisfaction. Gotta go read some more of The Last Song, then head to bed to get a good nights rest for an intense cardio sweat sessh, and a 9 hr. shift on our feet to follow. Have a great night.

XOXO Court & Whit♥♥♥

Want some german choc. cake for breakfast?

Friday 4/3  

 >>>Rewind back to Thursday night: 
Of course since a holiday is coming up, we got our monthly treat from the church girls. They are still trying to recruit us after all of this time. This time they left Peeps marshmallow sugar coated goodness on our doorstep.

French Meadow Bakery Brownie Review:

 Also on Thursday night Whit and I each had one of our French Meadow Bakery Fudge Brownies inside of some ice cream.  

Mmmm… Butter Pecan and a + it is all natural!

Usually the only store bought brownies I buy are Cosmic Brownies, but after trying this brownie I am going to have to switch over to these. They are much better for you, and they make the perfects dessert. I like how these actually taste like real brownies, soft chewy, chocolatey perfection. For 360 calories that is not bad considering how big and thick these brownies are! For more info. visit http://www.frenchmeadow.com/ 

 

Okay now on to Friday’s breakfast. Whit and I had to wake up at 4 am so that we could be to work by 6. So once again we needed something quick and easy. Coach’s Oats sent Whit a big box of their oats to review a few days ago, so we pulled them out and got to work.  

Here is the difference of Coach’s Oats compared to other oats from their website:

Coach’s Oats are prepared in an entirely new way. The groats are toasted to bring the natural sugars to the surface of the oat, then cracked into small pieces. This patented Cracked n’ Toasted™ process means that Coach’s Oats are never mushy, always naturally delicious and cook in just five minutes on a stovetop or in the microwave.

That’s the Coach’s Oats difference!

We also decided to use some stevia that we got sent to review…. This morning’s bowl of oats was GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE!

 We used the Pure Liquid Vanilla Stevia and combined it in with some milk and our Vanilla Hazelnut coffee blend from Einstein’s. It truly made for the best latte!

For the oats:
-1 coach’s oats pack(which has 1/4 cup, but you can use any oats)
-1/2 packet of stevia or your preferred sweetener
-1/4 cup of almond milk
-1/2 cup of water
-1 tsp. of sugar free carnation chocolate instant breakfast
-1 tbs. of coconut
 
Combine all of these ingredients in a bowl and microwave for 3 1/2 min.

 

For the frosting: 
-1/2 tbs. of coconut butter
-1/2 tbs. of dark chocolate pb
-another little sprinkle of coconut

Microwave each for about a minute, then combine. Finally pour the frosting over your oats and top with some chopped walnuts. Enjoy!

 Oats verdict: Whit and I usually use 1/2 cup of oats because anything less will not keep us full, but I felt completely satisfied all day! Also you can really taste the natural sweetness to them. These are definitely different compared to any other oats I have ever tried 🙂

NuStevia Verdict: These products are great! They really helped sweeten up breakfast and these products did not give off that bitter fake sugar taste like splenda.  

Here is some more info. about NuStevia:
*It contains 60% more Stevia than other leading brands
*Will not raise blood sugar levels
*100% natural, gluten free, does not contain aspartame, saccharin, sucralose, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, or any kind of artificial sweeteners/colors

Whit and I were too tired to pack a lunch the night before, so we threw together a snackie lunch! Perfect foods was kind enough to send us a big box of their bars to review. Each bar contains 18g of protein! A blend of  organic raw honey and peanut butter is used to sweeten these bars. **From the box: “The mixture of protein, complex carbohydrates, and essential omega-3 healthy fats, provides a well balanced meal on the go”** For more info. visit http://www.perfectfoodsbar.com  

They sent us peanut butter, fruit & nut, cranberry crunch, and carob chip to try. 

 

 

 Whit and I decided on Cranberry crunch. It had little rice puffs in it, which kind of gave it that rice krispy taste. The bar felt really soft, you just barely touch it and your finger leaves a dent in it. It is probably from the raw honey. This was not your ordinary bar. I like that it is so different!

 

 

 

 

When Whit and I got home we were yet again craving something with PEANUT BUTTER…lol you can never get enough of that stuff! This snack helped gave us a quick pick me up before our intense INSANITY workout. Today’s was Max Cardio Conditioning and Cardio Abs. All of my muscles were fatigued, I could barely lift up my legs for the high knees. 

 

 

By the time Whit and I got to our abs video, we could barely move. When we were all done some hot pizza from Dominos was waiting for us on the counter. I love their garlic bread crust. It goes perfect with chicken, bell pepper, onion pizza. My family always orders chicken on our pizza because it is a lot healthier than pepperoni. Pepperoni is a processed meat that contains a lot of saturated fat.

And of course what is dominos pizza without some KICKERS! 

 

Whit and I ended up going in the hot tub again! It felt so good on these sore muscles 😛
