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.

One hot mess! YIKES

13 Jul

Tuesday July 13th!

Hey lovelies 🙂

Lately it has been hotter than blazes in our house so last night Whit and I needed something cold to cool us off. We thought to create a frozen treat with nothing other than Shakeology. This stuff rocks! If you skimped on veggies or greens during the day, then ya better drink up!
We call this Shakeology creation…
 Chocolate Mint Protein Ice Cream!

  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 scoop choc. Shakeology
  • 1 tsp. instant coffee granules
  • 1/2 tbs. carob chips
  • 3 drops mint extract
  • sprinkle guar and xanthum gum
  • ice

Freeze for an hour and ENJOY!

 

This morning Whit and I were craving PANCAKES, protein pancakes that is! They are so yummy, satisfying and they kind of have a french toast texture. They never fail to impress me 🙂 Today we decided on raspberry, carob chip, coconut ones. The inspiration for these came from the ammazzing Pinkberry I had last month.

1. Start by pouring 1/2 cup of old-fashioned oats into a bowl.

 

2. Then add 3/4 cup of egg whites.

 

3. Next add 1 sweetener packet of your choice.

 

4. Then add 2/3 cup of raspberries!

 

5. 1/2 TBS. carob chips

 

6. 1 TBS unsweetened coconut

 

7. A little under 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce

 

8. Stir all of the ingredients together.

Then measure our 1/4 cup and pour into a skillet. When the edges start to bubble then flip the pancake 😛

This recipe should make 5-6 pancakes. ENJOY!

Paired with some iced Lipton Caramel Tea and this is a meal fit for a queen! lol.

We topped ours with some yogurt and a little brown rice syrup.

 

Well guys today it hit 100 degrees! So our mom FINALLY let us turn on the air conditioning in the house for the first time this Summer. Hallelujah! I swear I looked like a hot sweaty mess today. 

Our afternoon consisted of some 15 HITT action with the sistas, this odd lunch pair that I have been craving, and oh yeah some retail therapy!  

I swear Lean Pockets keep coming out with better and better flavors!

 Who says you cannot have a sweet potato with a Lean Pocket? In my world lunches like this always exist! lol.

 

I fueled myself with this cinna-puffin yogurt mess before leaving to SHOP! Let me tell ya’ on a hot day like today nothing feels better than shopping in a nice air-conditioned store. And plus you can get in some good cardio too! 😉

 

I was cravin’ something spicy for dinner tonight so I used some jalapeno hummus and made a grilled turkey wrap.

 Look at those awesome grill marks. This girl knows her stuff, huh!

Tomorrow is back to boring work. YUCK! But at least we do not have to close 🙂 All of your questions for our next vlog have gotten the creative juices flowing, so keep the questions coming!
