Day 2 of a less stressed week…

28 Sep

BLOW off some steam!!!

 

How do Whit and I do it?

We got a little INSANE this morning with our Insanity Max Cardio Conditioning & ABs video. It was an hour of a much-needed sweat sesh. Afterwards… I was felt so accomplished! These videos will help you get the results in 60 days of which would take most people a whole year!  

I do not know how I would make it through stress with out exercise. It is just one of the few things that keeps me sane! 🙂

Like the people in the video Whit was exhausted by the end!

 

Oh and you cannot forget to refuel yourself with a good hearty breakfast!

  • In the Mix:
  • 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup almond milk, 2/3 cup water
  • 2 Tbs. egg-whites, 2 Tbs. coffee
  • 1/2 splenda(out of stevia 😦 ) packet
  • capful maple extract
  • sprinkle chia/flax/cinnamon

Top With:

 Mmm… Muffin Oats is the best!!! Have you guys made muffins lately? If so, what kind?

 

 Lunch today was yet another fruit salad(the best kind!)… but this time with raspberries 🙂

Something about Fall just puts me in a salad mood I guess!

And to pair with our salads was a slice of Carrot Raisin Manna Bread shmeared with pumpkin butter.

Verdict: I was much more impressed with this bread than the cinnamon date. It definitely hit the carrot-cake spot. Now all I need is some coconut butter to spread on top. If you have got a Carrot Cake obsession too then this bread is definitely a winner!

****Well this is all that we have time to post with today. We have our Humanities class tonight. I think maybe I will save my 5 hour energy for our Thursday night class. Insanity gave me a lot of energy so hopefully I will make it through tonight! Breakfast is already prepared and in the fridge for tomorrow. It involves ginger and lemon. Any guesses? Well check back with ya later.

No dilly dally

25 Aug

That has been the motto of lately. HA! If any of you have done the Turbo Fire workout program than you may or may not recall Monica Gray who says “No dilly dally dilly dally, just go hard with intensity, get the job done and then go back home to your real life.” This past week and weekend has consisted of 3 days of work, school, homework, and Working out. Yikes! Is anyone else struggling with the back to school routine?

            Monday morning was the First day of school. Well kinda. Do you remember how we told you how we are also taking two night-time college courses this year? Since we are seniors, this year we only have to take 5 classes, but since we have those 2 colleges courses, then we only really have to take 3 courses at school. After talking to our counselor, our schedule got all rearranged beautifully! We have highschool every other day now 🙂 The three classes we are taking at school are:

                  -Whit’s-

  • 1b- AP Phycology(We have this together)
  • 2b-English 121 Lit
  • 3b-Precalc

                  -Court’s-

  • 1b-AP Phycology
  • 2b-College Algebra
  • 3b-English 121 Lit

Then, on Tuesdays and Thursday nights from 6-8:40 we go to Humanities and Art Appreciation. The school pays for these classes, and so basically by the time we really do go to college we will be entering as sophomores. Pretty Cool, right? What I have learned so far is that College courses are way more chill and layed back than highschool. Court and I had a lot of fun last night at our Humanities class, and our teacher looks like Santa. lol! All I can say is having every other day off is Awesome 🙂 We both got all our HW done last night, so that today we could just relax. And it was super nice to sleep in, in the middle of the week. We even had enough energy to do an intense workout. We managed to whip out 40 minutes of INSANITY, plus some AB action. Cheers to a great senior year ahead!

              Here has been some of the eats from lately

             Turkey chipotle cheddar melt with coconut glaze fruit salad

Overnight oats with puffed millet and millet bread thrown in

Amy’s burrito broken up into a Veggie salad. It was a mexicana salad! 🙂

You like the cute new lunch box?

Finally we got to try the CARROT CAKE LARABAR!!!! OMFG, it was amazing.

Check out this delish creation: A broccoli cheddar soup stuffed bell pepper. Yum.

Have you ever heard of Navita’s Naturals? Well if not, their products are defiantly something to rave about. They sell nutrient rich food that range from Chia, flax, cacao, dried fruits and nuts, fruit powders, and much more. In our lovely package we received Trail mix, Pomegranate powder, and Mulberries.

The trail mix has a variety of different dried fruits I have never even tried. And to a surprise they were all GOOD! This is looking like a great school snack already. 🙂

The first thing we decided to make with this Pomegranate powder was POM overnight oats.

We mixed in 1 tbs into a 1/2 cup of oats a little plain greek yogurt, and the addition of Amazing grass berry mix.

**Verdict~Very fruity and perfectly sweet.

This Elvis Wich was great fuel for a 2 hr and 40 min college class

Maple coffee oats never fail!

And neither do Fresco Chicken Sausage w/ a Sweet Potato

Guess What, Tomorrow is Friday for us!!! We just gotta go to our 3 classes at school, and then Art Appreciation at night, and Friday NO SCHOOL. 🙂 That well be 100% motivation to get through tomorrow. Easy Piecy right. School out at 12:45, go home to eat lunch, workout, prep dinner, work on a lil’ HW,  go to college class, and then FREEDOM! Now remember tomorrow “No dilly dally dilly dally! Just go and get the job done.” HAHAHA. Make that your motto, trust us it will get you through the day. Life is good 🙂

Lunch today: A snacky lunch naturally 

There was a new yogurt shop in town so naturally we had to try it!

30 cents an oz.(an yes they weigh your finished product) is pretty good, but you see there is only one giant size cup.

 

Then there was about 12 different flavors and a gazillion different toppings to choose from. So naturally getting excited about everything… the bill was high! lol.

 

 

Mine, Court and Ash’s creations!

 

My flavors: vanilla wafer and cheesecake
