Alot on the mind lately

12 May

We conquered the middle of the week yo! With our per usual late day Wednesday, we got to sleep in till 5:30. It may not seem like sleeping in to some of you, but when you get up at 5 AM everyday ITS HUGE!!! Last night the weather changed in a big fat hurry, and we woke up with freezing temps, and a snow-covered ground. With summer break just a few weeks away that may seem odd to you, but nope not for COLORADO. lol ūüôā This morning, we were kinda stumped on what to make for breakfast, but then thought of some of Kath’s bowl of oats for inspiration. We basically went off of her butterscotch chips, PB, and yogurt idea, then just threw in whatever sounded good. In the end, all was random, but all was good‚ô• As eating b-fast we looked through all the grocery ads for the best deals this week.

Today was our short day, so after getting out at 10:45, we went on a fast grocery shopping trip to Albertson’s with the Mommasita, then did a little more when she rushed off to work. We got her into Luna bars, and now I swear she is an addict. You cannot go grocery shopping without picking a few up, otherwise wheew¬†someone will be mad. lol While out shopping in the freezing temps, Court and I stopped into Carino’s Cafe for small NF Dulce de Leche Latte’s for an afternoon snack along with a cookie at the grocery store bakery. On the glass it says “Hey Kids take a Cookie, they are FREE!” So you know what being the kids we are, we snatched those little Pink Cherry Chip cookies right up. And let me tell you WOW, it was a bad for you good cookie‚ėļ

After the Grocery Extravaganza, we came home full of energy and ready to do a FREE OnDemand¬†workout. Under the Most popular section, we chose a 43 min video that was fun and new. I liked this workout, because it incorporated¬†Cardio, Strength, and floorwork. And it was put in separate intervals and rapidly changing, so you never got bored. Our older sister Ashley got home when we were in the middle of the Video, so she sat on the Couch and had an awesome conversation with us about this Summer/Future plans while we finished up the last 10 minutes. With all this Summer excitement going on, after reading Courtney’s Post the other day about “Goals for Summer,” and having a long talk with our older sister, we began to really think about our Summer goals.

On the mind, and Want to accomplish:

  1. Pay off more than half of our car to DAD, so basically upping our hours at work
  2. Take a Hot Yoga class! We have never done that, and it sounds awesome ūüôā
  3. Figure out plans for College (Scholarships, Internships, Universities, Job, etc)
  4. Move forward with the plans Ash, Court, and I talked about today
  5. Run farther than I’ve ran before
  6. Go to places I have wanted to see/eat at in Colorado for a long time
  7. Take multiple hikes
  8. Ride my new old school bike to the grocery store, and then take home groceries in my cute little basket on the front
  9. Spend a whole day at the beach (Make a sandcastle, play in the water, lay in the sand)
  10. Make this years camping trip more enjoyable than last years
  11. Buy Chalene Johnson’s Turbo Fire, and complete the High Intensity Program
  12. Get awesome Senior Pics
  13. Take many naps
  14. Go swimming
  15. Relax by the pool
  16. Have BBQ, and make SMORES ūüôā

 

Breakfast: Oats and Carmel Lipton Tea 

 For lunch we used our Bolani Yogurt Cheese Sauce, and some leftovers in the fridge to make a Wrap.

  • 1 La tortilla Factory Large Whole grain tortilla (80 cals)
  • bolani sauce
  • spinach
  • tomato
  • low sodium turkey
  • sprouts
  • avocado

 

And to go along with that Court and I split this Veggie Pirate Booty Single serve bag.  

 **Verdict: I was not to sure what to expect with Veggie flavored chips, but they were absolutely delish! 

 And with the purchase of the first Cherries of the season, we had to incorporate some of those 

 

 With all this cold air, some High Fiber Progresso Soup came to the rescue! 

As we as our Very Last Corn muffin VITA TOPS! tear tear ūüė¶

What a good hardy meal, that defiantly satisfied and warmed us right up.  

With our¬†“Get your workout done” mindset, we have already planned to wake up early tomorrow and do Jillian Michael’s new Yoga Meltdown video before school. As early as that may seem, it will all pay off in the afternoon, when school and our workout is already done for the day. That is how I see it anyways. lol I am more of a morning girl when it comes to working out, and Court is totally opposite. I have to drag her butt out of bed.

Word to the Wise: Plan your workout out tonight, and have a plan for your meals. Randomness= wasted time, laziness, sometimes bad choices, and of course PROCRASTINATION! Workout and make healthy choices for you. Think about why you want to be healthy, and what benefits you will get out of it. Stop thinking about the person you want to be, and actually become that person. Take a risk, if you never feel uncomfortable, nothing will change.

Most of all, Have a lovely night and get some sleep, because tomorrow is a new Day!

XOXO Court & Whit ‚ô•
