Flax Oil… You may have heard of it, but do you use it?

After seeing a few bloggers use Flax oil, it really got Court and I thinking. What are the benefits? How do you use it…in shakes,oats,straight up? Well with little research here is what we have found out about the benefits portion:

  • Lower cholesterol, protect against heart disease and control high blood pressure
  • Control constipation, haemorrhoids, diverticular disorders and gallstones
  • Treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, sunburn and rosacea
  • Promote healthy hair and nails
  • Minimize nerve damage that causes numbness and tingling as well as other disorders
  • Reduce cancer risk and guard against the effects of ageing:
  • Treat menopausal symptoms, menstrual cramps, female infertility and endometriosis

That is just some basic stuff, but if you do use Flax-Oil, please fill us in on the benefits you have achieved, and your favorite way to use it.

Today we had a 5 AM workout Wake-up call with Ashley in the basement completing HIIT 15, and Tone 3o. We’ve done the HIIT 15 many times now, and it still is way harder than the longer videos. We were all so sweaty, flushed, and breathing heavy. That class consists of 3 circuits which you repeat for 3 times each, and there is about a 30 second rest between each round. Today we all had work at 8, and we ended up finishing our workout at promptly 5:55 AM. With heavy feeling weak legs after that intense workout, we all slowly made our way upstairs to the kitchen for some Breakfast. Lets just call this mornings oat Combo Amazing Chocolate Strawberry oats!

In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 tsp flaxseed
  • 1 scoop Chocolate Amazing meal
  • 1/2 EAS Light Vanilla protein shake
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup strawberries
  • 2 tbs egg whites
  • Top with: Justin’s Honey Peanut  Butter

 MMM, totally lovin’ this Justin’s PB.

Court and I really liked that Egg Salad wrap that we ate during Inferno week, so we recreated it for lunch today. We used Flat-out wraps, and paired some juicy grapes with it 🙂

 You know you want to make this, lol so here ya go. Thank you Courtney and Whitney… Right? lol

 Here’s what the results will look like

 After a long 8 hour shift, we are finally home sitting down, and enjoying some leftover pizza from last night. The weather is real nice out, so lately most our meals have been eaten out on the deck under the cazibo. (Fyi, i do not know how to spell that. lol)

 Check out the perfectly toasted Garlic bread on Sara Lee Whole-wheat

 And a blueberry fruit salad for perfection!

Inferno Days 3 & 4

8 Jul

Hey There! Hows the Inferno week challenge going you might be asking?  Hmmm… well to answer your question “it is frickin’ HARDCORE!!!” I’m loving the results so far, just not how hard it is. These are a lot littler meals than what we are used to, and I feel like my tummy is grumbling all day. Luckily though tomorrow is the last day!!! Yeah 🙂 The only gazillions things that I have been craving are Oats, overnight oats, green monsters, yogurt messes, sweet potatoes, egg sammies, and OMG Pancakes. Seriously this plan is like trying to break a hardcore addiction of coffee, oats, and a whole ton of PB. The food all taste good, but it has just reminded me that having what you are craving, and putting your own spin on meals is the best part. I’m loving these beautiful defined abs, and so far have learned a lot about healthy options both with Shakeology, and more cooking options with veggies.

 ~Day 3~

Breakfast-suppose to be cottage cheese with pineapple(eww, instead yogurt)

 Lunch- Loaded baked potato(picture was taking half way through being destroyed!)

 Afternoon Snack-Chocolate covered Raspberry Shakeology Shake…Totally tasted like a yummy frosty!!!

 DinDin-Grilled Chicken soft tacos

 and to pair some black bean Quinoa

Day 4 ~

 If you’re wondering, this plan includes 1 shakeology shake into each day, just cause it’s that good, and loaded with benefits!

 Oh my goodness, this Nutty Apple tasted like heaven, when you had b-fast at 4 AM, and are sweating to death at work because your workin’ so hard. Seriously this was probably one of the tastiest snacks. You can’t go wrong w/ apples and PB.

 Well we were suppose to have off from work today, but instead got stuck with a 6-2 shift. There’s no complains here though, because WE DID NOT HAVE TO CLOSE for like the first time in ages. It was so weird leaving work early, but we definitely appreciated it. Lunch eaten on break was this delish egg salad wrap with a side salad. The wrap was superb, the salad not so much. The balsamic vinegar just was not tasting very good today for some reason.

 When we got home from work, our snack was supposed to be an orange with 10 almonds, but it looks like someone in the family got a little hungry last night and ate them all gone. So we just opted for brazilian nuts and dates.

 After the snack, it was time to face another intense workout. We did Fire 45, HITT 20, and stretch 10.

 With this plan, we have become grill masters this week. Each dinner calls for a lean meat that requires grilling. So tonight’s dinner was Steak and potatoes.

So court and I were looking at the lasted issue of our Seventeen magazine, and found a cool workout called Piloxing. Have you heard of it? It is a workout that combines boxing with Pilates.  Well anywho it is a new Hollywood trend, and looks really awesome! Celebs like Hilary Duff and Ashley Tisdale love it. After looking up more about it, I’m thinking we are going to buy the DVD found on this website.

Well ya’ll tomorrow is FRIDAY!!! Yay, then a day off saturday 🙂 These early workouts followed by long days of work have been putting me in a grumpy mood. But some sleep and good oats should do the trick. lol Wei-wei were still working on getting you that picture if you were wondering. Hopefully this weekend. The week is busy, but a relaxing Saturday is in the works. Tonight Big Brother comes on for the first time this summer, and court just made me some amazing ginger green tea sweetened with stevia. Peace out Lovelies X♥X♥ Whit
