WIAW & Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies

So now that Wednesday’s officially over (well in 3 hours, but I’ll be long asleep by then) I can show you my  eats of the day. As usual I’m linking up with Jenn over at Peas and Crayons! If you haven’t joined in the Wednesday fun – feel free to do so!

Breakfast: 2 slices of topless pumpkin spice bread w/ homemade pumpkin cream cheese

Snack: Apple (picked by me!)

Lunch: Romaine, Artichoke Hearts, Cucumbers, Carrots, Red Onion, Roasted Red Peppers, Tomatoes & Vegetarian Chicken Patty w/ a drizzle of BBQ sauce

Snack: Popcorn

Dinner: Healthy Chipotle knockoff – Brown rice w/ lime juice and cilantro, Grilled chicken flavored with taco seasoning, chopped jalapeno, chopped tomatoes, chopped onions, black beans, corn, cheddar cheese, dollop of greek yogurt and avocado slice

Dessert: 2 Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies

I posted on Facebook the other day that I made these cookies and got a lot of requests for the recipe… WELL i have a confession. I made these with 2 ingredients.

No butter, no oil, no eggs…Just the mix and pumpkin. I know, that’s cheating. But it’s good…and when you don’t keep cookies in your house and you are craving one badly you take desperate measures.

This was one of the tastiest desperate measures I’ve ever taken.

QUESTIONS: Do you ever use cake or cookie packages? Admit it!!!

Old and New

Happy Saturday loves! Adam and I woke up this morning with one thing on our mind: Working out. We both were feeling a little sluggish this week so we knew we needed a good sweat. There is a gym on the corner of our street that offers free CROSSFIT classes on Saturday so we tried it out.

There were 60 people in this class which was great motivation. I really enjoyed that everyone in the class was extremely fit and nobody gave up during the hour-long workout. My bum is already hurting from the air squats. We are going to look into attending more classes although I think its VERY pricey so we shall see.

After our CROSSFIT class I made some Funfetti Protein Pancakes. Have you seen these yet?

I added 2 scoops of cake batter protein and 1 cup of water and it turned out pretty amazing if  I do say so myself.

The package claims to make 12 cupcakes…But it only made 6 for us.

After running some errands and doing “chores” we ate lunch so we could head to the movies!

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna (recipe coming soon)

Plan was to eat before we got there so we wouldn’t want popcorn.

We held out for about 20 minutes. Adam and I split the kid’s meal which comes with popcorn, fruit snacks and a drink. Perfectly proportioned for the two of us and it was fitting we got the kid’s meal since we went to see this

Lion King in 3D baby! We were definitely the only people in the theater above the age of 4… No joke.

Since the movie theater is so close to Trader Joe’s/Target Adam agreed to getting the grocery shopping out-of-the-way. Only new thing I bought:

But I bet you it’s going to be a good one! Thinking of whipping up some pumpkin cream cheese to go with it. Jealous? I’ll share my creations.

While we were grocery shopping Adam volunteered to make dinner. I knew that meant he wanted some red meat (which I wont cook) so I agreed.

Steak, shrimp, mashed potatoes and asparagus… I never knew my boyfriend was such a good cook. He may have just gotten himself into trouble because I’m going to request this happens A LOT more now 🙂

We’re going to enjoy an ice cream sandwich and watch a movie. Big day of apple/pumpkin picking tomorrow!!

QUESTION: Do you order popcorn at the movie theater or do you have more will power than me?
