New year, Happier Us

4 Jan

Hey Guys! It’s finally 2011

          You have no idea how long we have been wanting to say that. We now are in our last semester of Senior year, and then it is Graduation time in May! Yay 🙂 We are beyond excited to get out of high school and into the real world.

Here is my 2010 wrapped up with a FB post:

 It would not be a new year without a make-over right? Our boss at work has a Gay best friend who works for a salon, and he just happened to hook us up with some really cute hair 🙂

For me that included some edgier highlights

Auburn with bright blonde 

 And for Court that meant some Dark Brown. I think the color was Espresso.

 Oh, and since there were some requests to see our new piercings here they are:

For Whit: Cartlidge & Nose

 And for Court: just the Nose

 Here is a Close up on my cartilage:

 Our two weeks of Winter break looked a little something like this, with crazy hours of work every single day! Yikes, you know there was a lot of post-work naps in there. lol

 Luckily, we are now in Shift Leader training, with the promise of a raise. You gotta love having a dollar raise at work. 😉

 Magazine reads as of lately:

 I love Black&White photos, so Court and I had a picture-taking Fiasco one day 🙂 They ended up great to update old picture frames with in my bedroom.

 The last time we washed our car was the Summer, and look at it today. How clean right? The Tink-mobile was past due for a car wash, and now look at her sparkle in that Beautiful Colorado Snow.

 With a ton of new clothes and gifts from Christmas, it was time to clean out the closets. We ended up with TWO big bags of clothes to giveaway!

 Amazing lunch of today included:

Wrap:

  • Italian&Herb Flatout Wrap
  • 1/2 Light swiss Laughing Cow Wedge
  • Spike
  • 1 Italian Morningstar Patty
  • broccoli
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Salad Toppers
  • Chiquita Garlic Chile Hot Sauce

1/2 Gala Apple:

  •  1 TBS Crunchy Sprouts PB
  • Cinnamon

 

 Now let’s get to the awesome Gifts/Purchases of lately:

Mom and Dad are awesome, and got us each an HP Laptop for our B-day! (Dec. 18th)

 They are so fast, and totally awesome!

 Houndstooth and Juicy Couture Boots

 After seeing these Sperry’s in Meg’s Youtube Video, I wanted them so bad, and then Court bought them for me for Christmas. They are so are metallicy, and so adorable!

 Burlesque OPI Nail Polish

 Total Glam!

 This Chi Hair straightener is AMMMAAZINNG! Seriously, it straightens so fast and smoothly.

 I think Gold things were really a fav. this Christmas, because Courtney bought me this Gold Metallic Messenger bag from Charming Charlies.

 This Stuff Smells Delicious, and makes your cheeks super sparkly.

 Juicy Couture Perfume(Got a million Compliments about how good I smell, while wearing this. And at work they were all 3 different guys that were like “Whit you smell really nice today.” Ha thanks I know. lol)

 Love Culture is a cheap high fashion store kind of like Forever 21, and I got Court this Glammed out belt there. She loved it 🙂

 Her new nickname is now sparkle!

Just when you thought coffee couldn’t get any better

23 Nov

 You probably already know how crazy of Coffee lovers we are, and when it comes to energy, we are always on the lookout for anything NEW! Typically everyday we will start the morning with a cup of coffee, make a double shot latte at work, or drink a 5-Hour Energy. Any coffee we usually drink has the effect of a caffeine crash after.

I don’t know if you guys have met Jessica yet, but she is a gorgeous 19-year-old Sophomore in college, who looks fashionable everyday, makes delicious eats (including her famous loaves), and just happens to be involved with a company that sells Healthy Organic Coffee. Being the great blogger friend she is, she sent us some of this coffee to sample.

 There is…

  • Gourmet Instant Latte
  • Instant Mocha
  • Instant Black Coffee

The main ingredient found in OrganoGold Healthy Coffee is Ganoderma Extract:

  • Ganoderma is a Chinese mushroom that has been used in Chinese medicine for over 4000 years and delivers miraculous health benefits. The Ganoderma in OrganoGold healthy coffee is 100% Certified Organic
  • Some people take ganoderma extract to improve the function of their kidneys. It can also be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, eliminate insomnia and stress or lessen the side effects of chemotherapy.
  • It has been shown to promote the delivery of nutrients throughout the skin and even aid in the repair of skin that has been damaged due to overexposure to the sun.

How can OrganoGold Coffee be healthy?

Very Low Caffeine Regular coffee has approximately 135 mg of caffeine.

Tea has approximately 50 mg of caffeine.

A Diet Coke has 46 mg of caffeine.

One ounce of dark chocolate has 22 mg of caffeine.

OrganoGold Healthy Coffee has just 9 mg of caffeine.

Non-Acidic Coffee is too acidic, so unfortunately many people must avoid coffee or limit the number of cups they drink in a day.

Most coffee has a pH of 5.5

OrganoGold Healthy Coffee has a neutral pH between 7.3 and 7.5

What else can this healthy coffee do for you?

Standard Coffee                                             Healthy Coffee

>Very Acidic and Toxic                                      >Balances pH levels

>Raises Blood Pressure                                  >Natural detoxification

>Weakens Immune System                             >Strengthens immune system

>Dehydrates                                                        >Oxygenates the body

>Raises Stress Levels in the body                 >Provides calm energy

>Coffee jitters/caffeine crash              >No jitters /crash due to Ganoderma

 Ganoderma has had a tremendous impact in the health community. After reading through this newspaper, Courtney and I were both just amazed by the results people have gotten. There are stories of no more PMS, headaches, lowered blood pressure, no more back pain, and most of all a dramatic increase in energy.

 On Sunday morning, we chose to sample the Gourmet Instant Latte first!

 With a Tablespoon of Coffee Mate’s Toffee Nut Creamer, 1/4 cup of steamed milk, 1 cup of hot water, a swirl of Whip Cream, and a dash of cinnamon, this was an Ultimate Latte! Better than Starbuck’s Toffee Nut Latte, I might add. lol.

This Yummy latte was paired with some Berry Patch Oats.  

 Mondays sampling included trying the Gourmet Instant Mocha.

Overall, this coffee taste awesome, and we loved the results. Those results included feeling extremely energized(No caffeine crash, was able to power through a HUMUNGO workout, as well as write an 8 page paper), felt like a cleanse for the body(won’t go into too much detail with that, but I’m sure you get the idea…lol), did not feel dehydrated like coffee usually can feel like, and no runny nose or allergy like symptoms for two days which I feel like I experience frequently.

This coffee was awesome you guys. TRY IT NOW! To purchase click here.

This morning, I had a hair appointment at the salon at 9 AM, so Court and I stopped by Starbucks on the way there for Carmel Brule Latte’s, and Apple Bran Muffins. Ultimate Combo 🙂

Court and I got haircuts this week in case you can’t tell. Isn’t her houndstooth jacket so cute?! I think so.

We wouldn’t be ditching school or anything…Dad said it was okay to have a sluff day. I mean we’re seniors okay, and my hair really did need those highlights. lol 🙂 Right?

 Lunch was nothing too special, pretty much just random due to absolutely nothing in the fridge! With that said mommy girl gave us her debit card after lunch, and then we did all the grocery shopping for the week, both for Thanksgiving, and necessities.

For Dinner, Court whipped out this awesome dinner for us while I am working on this post. There is a Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla, salad, and sweet potato fries.

Holiday excitement/anxiety is…

2 Nov

Slowly creeping up on me!

Does anyone else feel it? Today is November 2nd. I cannot believe how fast October passed! Today all I could think about is how much x-mas shopping I still have to do, school work until finals, our 18th b-day approaching, and of course the baby will be here to in a few weeks! I am excited and stressing at the same time 🙂 Speaking of x-mas shopping, I cannot wait until BLACK FRIDAY! Do you guys like shopping on that day? I do not know what it is, but something about waking up at the but crack of dawn and running like crazy to catch all of the great sales… just gives me a high!

Breakfast this morning was P-R-O-T-E-I-N Oats!

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk, 2/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp. chia
  • 1 tsp. flax
  • 1 tbsp. shakeology
  • 1 tbsp. caramel toffee fudge whey protein
  • 2-3 drops vanilla stevia
  • 2/3 drops maple extract

Top with

  • egg puff(2 egg whites)
  • dollop Jiffy All Natural pb
  • Kashi Go-Lean Crunch- Honey Almond Flax
  • 1 dried fig chopped up

After breakfast digested then it was time to do some boot camp: This is one of Fitnessista’s workouts from this month!

-Warm up 5 min cardio of choice (Whit and I did the warm-up from Insanity)

Superset 1: Bicep curl and tricep dip (15 of each, repeat 3 times)

Superset 2: Step-ups on the right (10), on the left (10), sumo squat and crunch (10), left (10)– repeat 2 times

Cardio blast: 5 min. Start at an easy jog or walking pace with 5-6% incline. Add 1% incline every minute until you have reached 5 min (if you need to take it down before then, do it)

Superset 3: Pushups (12- start in full plank and drop to your knees to finish if you need to), bent-over wide row (15)- repeat 3 times

Superset 4: Stability ball back extension (12-15) and Stability ball crunch (hold a weight at the ends with both hands,keeping your arms close to your ears to make it more challenging- 15)- repeat 3 times

Cardio blast: 5 min sprints. Go for 1 min at an easy pace, 30 seconds at a very challenging pace, alternating for 5 minutes total.

Bent over fly and dumbbell front raise (15 of each)- repeat 3 times

-Cool down (5 minutes), stretch.

This whole work out took about an hour and Whit and I were drenched! I never got bored the whole work out. This was a good work out to confuse the muscles 🙂

 

Lunch was a GIANT salad and Pumpkin Apple Sauce Mess:

  • Romaine/ Spinach
  • Cucumber
  • Bell pepper
  • Carrots
  • Red Onion
  • Lentils
  • Quinoa
  • Mushrooms
  • Spike
  • Hummus
  • Italian dressing

Who ever said salads are gross…. obviously does not know how to make one like this! 😉

Unsweetened apple sauce, pumpkin, raisins, kashi, graham cracker, AB, and heated up! This one smelled like pumpkin pie…. so good.

Well lovely’s,

I’m off to relax and maybe watch some Dawson’s Creek. I am obsessed! Do you have any shows you watch on DVD? Tell me about it!
