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!!!

Das Boot

Yesterday morning I woke up at 6am and decided to head out for a run… I completed 4 miles in 35 minutes and came home and did the 10 pound slimdown yoga video. If I don’t get my workout done in the morning its likely it wont happen!

After a quick shower I whipped up some protein oatmeal. Because everyone likes hot oatmeal after a sweaty workout in 100 degree weather, right?

In the bowl: 1 packet of strawberries and cream oatmeal, 1/2 smashed banana, 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 scoop cake batter protein, 1T chia seeds and the other 1/2 of the banana sliced. SO GOOD.

Side Note: I’ve had this bowl for 10 years 🙂 Isn’t it perfect?

I cleaned the entire apartment yesterday (which is small) and it took me all day. I clearly have ADD. I took a break for lunch and grocery shopping!

Leftover sloppy joe, an ear of corn cut of the cob and romaine lettuce

I have to remember to only stick to my list when I go grocery shopping on the bike! I almost hit about 8 people on my way home because the weight of the bags steered me in every which way direction. Whoopsies!

I threw dinner in the crockpot and headed to a free fitness in the park class. The flyer said it would be a hip hop class…When I arrived the teacher explained that the hip hop teacher couldn’t make it but she would be happy to teach modern dance. I was cool with it…or so I thought. WORST WORKOUT EVER. I couldn’t even call it a workout. She had us prancing around, rolling around in the grass and crossing our legs like a butterfly. I left 25 minutes into the class and snapped a picture of the prancing while running away.

Not my thang.

On my walk back home I noticed there were pieces of paper all over my car.. I walk up and bam.

I’m booted. Seriously Hoboken? Ticket me and boot my car. Thanks for ruining my day!!!

Thank goodness dinner was ready when I got home. The crock pot saves me once again.

French Dip sandwiches on whole wheat buns and a side of roasted zucchini.

I get A LOT of searches on my blog for Pot Roast so I thought I’d share this recipe because it couldn’t be ANY easier.

Pot Roast in the Crock Pot

Ingredients 

  • 2 lb Chuck Roast (trim the fat (but not all of it)
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Lipton Onion Soup packet
Directions
  • Add all ingredients to slow cooker
  • Cook on low for 6-8 hours
  • Pull apart beef for sandwiches
I topped Adam’s with cheese and poured a little extra sauce on the sandwiches since I didn’t have enough to dip them.
I don’t like to toot my own horn but….beep beep. These were good!
Dessert was something that was definitely on my agenda tonight since I was SO angry about my car.
Graham cracker spread with natural peanut butter, dark chocolate chips and sugar free cool whip. Might be seeing this one quiiite often.
I have a long to do list to tackle today…and more brown bananas so I’m thinking of making banana cupcakes! Who wants some?

QUESTIONS: Has your car ever been booted? Have you ever taken a modern dance class?
