Let’s start with dessert…

15 Jul

Thursday July 15th

This was not an ordinary CW dessert. Usually it is a bowl of Fro-yo or chocolate, but last night we tried something we have never had. We made BAKED APPLES! They were filled with a little bit of Walden’s caramel sauce and brown sugar. Then we could not leave Fro-yo completely out so we added a scoop on top. Now check out them apples!

Well guys if you have not tried a baked apple before then DO! They are awesome.


Today has to have been one of the most relaxing days off. I actually slept in because the parentals left on the AC all night. It has been getting ridiculously hot, so this was much needed. With that being said I slept in. Yep that’s right guys the twins who never sleep actually slept! It felt glorious. I woke up feeling energized and ready to make something sweet for breakfast. We ran out of our 100+ serving of Costco Quaker oatmeal so I guess it is time to plan some new breakfasts until the stash is restored. We introduced Ashley into overnight oats so now the family flies through oats. lol

French toast has been on my mind for weeks, especially after Gracie’s French Toast  that she had last week! So this morning I pulled some Earth Grains sandwich thins out of the freezer and got to work! 🙂

I took two sandwich thin buns and soaked them in:

  • egg whites
  • coffee
  • maple extract
  • cinnamon

    Topping included:

  • 1/2 banana
  • dollop plain yogurt, AB, and caramel sauce

This was so easy! It looks like pancakes huh 😛



Well the good news you all have been waiting to hear came in the middle of Fire 30 class today. I was really getting into the moves today and then the phone rang and it said NY on the caller i.d. Usually we just ignore the phone when we are working out, but not today. This was a special call that we have been waiting for. Arielle Mellen, from Current Health Teens magazine, published monthly by Weekly Reader contacted us yesterday about doing an interview with Whit and I for their magazine. She asked us a TON of questions about healthy eating. It was so much fun to share our knowledge of healthy living and cooking with her. It made me realize that this is truly what I want to do with my life. I love being healthy, I love informing others, this is the route I want to take!



Lunch was a Tuna Salad and a KIND bar. Wait a minute… where’d we get that? Oh yeah Whit made these little bundles of joy last night. This tasted just like the Fruit and Nut KIND bar. Want one for yourself, but don’t want to cough up around $2 for each then here ya go….

MAKES 2 BARS: combine put these ingredients into the food processor:

  • 7 dried apricots
  • 2 dates

This will give you a nice sticky paste then… roll your paste in these ingredients:

  • 4 chopped brazilian nuts
  • 6 almonds
  • 5 small pieces of dried mango ripped up
  • 1 tbs. goji, banana chips, sweetened coconut flakes

Your welcome 😉


Whit and I spent our afternoon running around town picking groceries for our momma. We had to restock up on chicken, so she made us buy 8 3 lb. packages of boneless skinless chicken breast at Albertson’s. The guy looked at me like I was crazy when I told him 8, but hey we have a big family! We broke into one of these packages tonight and made tacos.

These are always a family fave!


Well lovelies,

We have a 4 am wake up call tomorrow for work. YIKES! Oh well I am sure a big ol’ cup of coffee will do the trick. Hopefully the Vlog will be up tomorrow, if not def. Saturday. Before I go, have you had anything really exciting happen in your life lately?


Inferno Week Day 1

5 Jul

 Woah this week ia about getting optimal results from Turbo Fire. With that said this part of the program is called the “Inferno Plan.” It is a 5 day eating and excercise plan designed to show off those lean muscles, and pull forward the abs. Court, Ash and I began this morning with Day 1’s workouts which included Fire 55 EZ class + Stretch 10 class. Wow, it was seriously a killer 5AM workout before work. And showers were more than needed following. lol

Breakfast– Turkey Bacon Egg Sandwich 

  •  2 slices of whole-wheat bread
  • 1 scrambled egg
  • 1 slice of turkey bacon
  • 2 tomato slices

Mid-morning snack- 1/2 medium sized banana, 7 walnut halves

 When Lunch time finally arrived, nothing sounded better than sitting outside under the umbrella together while we enjoyed our Tuna Salads. 🙂

Lunch- Tuna Salad

  • 3 cups mixed greens 
  • 4 oz water-packed tuna, drained
  • 5 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 3 scallions diced
  • 2 tbs fat-free ranch dressing 

 And to go along with that some cold delish Pink lemonade

 Afternoon snack- Chocolate shakeology shake (still so amazed by how healthy this stuff is)

  • 8 oz water
  • 1 scoop of shakeology
  • 1/2 tbs almond butter
  • Mix in a blender with ice 

This was our first experience with Shakeology, and we absolutely loved this miracle powder. It is delish and 100% nutritious. The blenders at work are awesome, so while we were closing and there were no customers, we blended these  babies right up.

By the time we all three got home from work, WE WERE DRAINED! I think we are all used to random snackage throughout the day, and just in general more calories. Tomorrow might call for an extra 100 cals, since you burn at TON at work itself.

Dinner– Honey Dijon Chicken with Garlic-Parmesan Broccoli

  • 4 6-oz chicken breast halves
  • 1/3 cup dijon mustard
  • 3 tbs. honey
  • 1tbs. parsley flakes
  • salt, to taste
  1. mix ingredients, then dip chicken in mixture
  2. grill for about 7 min on both sides


  • 4 cups broccoli
  • 4 tbs parmesan cheese
  • garlic salt, to taste
  1. Steam broccoli
  2. Top w/ parmesan, 1 tbs olive oil, and garlic salt

MMM, wow this meal by far was the best of the day, and that broccoli, who knew broccoli could taste so good???… We were all a little iffy on the honey dijon chicken, as to whether it would taste good. But turns out it is delish.  

So far the meals and workouts of Turbo Fire have been really impressing. This is an easy to stick to program, that is seriously a blast. You wake up feeling like all you’re doing is dancing rather than working out. I hope you guys all buy the program and try it as well. tomorrow’s workouts are harder and longer, and we got yet again another long day of work. But we will catch ya’ll l8tr. Peace&♥&☺
